Auli-The-marvellous-beauty-of-nature


Weekend- Escape in Summers-Auli

Hello Friends, in these summers if you are planning for a short holiday or a weekend escape, and are a bit confused about your perfect destination, than we may help you a bit to make your choice.
In our view, the choice of your place should be done while considering certain factors like your journey period, your travel budget and whether you like crowd or peace.
In summers if you are looking for a short weekend escape especially from Delhi-NCR region or Uttar Pradesh or Uttrakhand, and you have a limited budget and love to be in peace and in lap of nature, than in our view AULI is the perfect place to be.

Auli- This small and beautiful hill station is located in the laps of mighty Himalayas, giving a picture perfect view of many Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi, Trishul parbat, Mana Parbat, Dunagiri & Karnet peaks of Himalayas. On a day when there is a clear sky the view of Himalayan peaks from Auli is unbeatable.
Auli is not only beautiful, but also peaceful and still untouched holiday destination, which makes it a perfect destination for honeymoon couples as well. Besides the many reasons to visit Auli, one unique reason is the cable car ride from Joshimath to Auli, yes there is a cable car ride connecting Auli and Joshimath, which is so picturesque, that could not be described in words. So, don’t miss the cable car ride to Auli, the 25 min ride which is said to be the longest cable car ride in India.

How to reach AULI:

By Air: The nearest airport is Dehradun airport, from where you can take a bus or taxi to Auli.

By Train: The nearest railway station is Haridwar, from where you can continue your onward journey to Auli by bus or taxis

By Road: In our view take a road trip from Delhi- NCR, and reach Joshimath, via Haridwar & Dehradun. You will love the being in the lap of nature. There are two routes to follow while coming by road:
1.      On one route is via Rishikesh and Rudraprayag, which is very beautiful and important from the aspect of pilgrimage. That is why most of the people prefer to go by this route. Due to this reason, this route is mostly crowded, witnessing frequent traffic jams.
2.      
   The other route is via places like Landsdowne, Shrinagar and Pauri. This hilly road has beautiful scenic views, with small hill stations on-route, which you can also visit. This route is quite un-explored, less crowded and beautiful.
We went there by second route to avoid long traffic jams and came back by taking the first route mentioned above, so as to experience them both. In our view, if you have less time and want to reach Auli at the earliest to enjoy more, than you should definitely take the second route.
Most of the taxi or bus drivers prefer the first route, since its short in terms of kilometres travelled, but if you are taking your own vehicle than you should definitely opt for the second route, which is shorter in terms of hours travelled.
After reaching Joshimath you can either drive till the place, or take a cable car ride or a chair car ride. We would definitely suggest you to go for a cable car ride which is more scenic and drops you at a decent height at Auli. For some more adventure you can opt a chair car ride, but the chair car station is at a lower height than the cable car.
  
Places and activities at Auli
Auli is a very beautiful place and you can experience the most amazing and scenic views. 

Nature is at its best there.
The most amazing experience is to watch the great peaks of Himalayas, the view is so clear and mesmerizing from here, that it is beyond imagination.
You can enjoy near the beautiful artificial lake, which gets completely freezed during the winters and in summers it adds to the beauty of the place.
You can walk for hours and hours feeling the cool breeze from Himalayas and the immensely peaceful vibe of the place. Again we would quote that the view is breath-taking.
In the winters, the beauty of Auli goes to next level when we could witness the Skiing tournament when the whole mountain is covered with snow. The place seems like mountain covered with white jewels.
Besides, Auli is also the base for many hiking trails, here sky is the limit explore as much as you can. You can also indulge in activities like horse riding and roaming in an ATV machine. Yes, the place offers it all.
The most important thing  is the fresh vibe and peace that rejuvenates you to the fullest.
Thus, in our view, in summers AULI is the best place to get refreshed and an amazing weekend escape.

Cruise- Travel with luxury and leisure

Hello friends, today we are going to share our views about travelling in a cruise ship. When this word “CRUISE” strikes our mind the first thing that we imagine is luxury, leisure, fun and lots of enjoyment.
A CRUISE SHIP is actually a small city floating on water. Many of you must be planning to go to a luxury cruise for your upcoming holidays. Today we are going to discuss everything about cruise including bookings, budget, facilities, entertainment and activities you can do at the cruise.
Bookings:
There are a number of cruiselines for which bookings can be done depending on your budget, choices and port of embarking. If you are looking for an Asian cruise, the major cruises that you can opt for are Royal Caribbean, Dream Cruises, Costa Cruises, etc. Ships of Royal Caribbean are said to be the best out of the fleet, however prices may be slightly on the higher side as compared to Dream cruises.
Bookings could be done online by many websites available, or you can directly go to the websites of Cruiselines, where you could also get attractive discounts while bookings. Its better to book early so as to avail the early bird offers available on websites. If you go in the summers mostly in the month of March and April you can get excellent offers, since it is an off- season for them.
There are options of cabin like inside cabin, oceanview cabin and balcony cabin which depends upon your budget. We would definitely suggest you to shed some more pennies from your pocket and opt for a balcony cabin, the experience of cruise will be at next level if you opt for a balcony cabin. The sight of ocean in the night and the morning sunrise view from your room will be a lifetime experience.
The key of smart and budget travel is book early, pay less and enjoy more.

Budget:
Budget of travel by a cruise ship depends upon many factors like the cruiseline you have opted, days of cruising, cabin of your choice and port of embarking.
While making the decision of travel by the cruise, first choice that you have to make is to which cruise to opt for. If you could spend a bit more for cruise than we would surely recommend the Royal Caribbean fleet, but if you want a decent cruise experience in a relatively affordable price than Dream cruise is the best option
Second decision to be taken is the number of days to cruise, more the number of days, more will be your expense. In our view, one should opt for a 3 nights and 4 days cruise, which we will be sufficient enough to explore the ship and enjoy all the facilities at the fullest, this will also be cost effective for you. Besides, if you want to travel in less time and less money than 1 night or 2 night cruises are also available. However, if you are travelling with a good cruise budget than you can opt for 5-7 nights cruise and visit different places along with cruising.

Facilities, entertainment and activities:
We bet you will go mad, when you look around what all facilities, entertainment and activities the cruise ship offers. It will be really a dream come true for many, as it was for us also. The cruise don’t gives you a single chance to complain or to get bored. You would be awestruck to see the never ending bucket of activities that the cruise offers.
Those who like to have fun in water or want to enjoy adventure activities, there is a buffet of activities you could indulge in. You could enjoy and relax in swimming pool or can go for water slides, which is a great fun for kids as well as adults. Adventure junkies can go for zip-lining activity or rock climbing, which is also a fun activity. Those who are interested in sports can also play golf or table tennis, for which exclusive areas are available.
There is a wide range of indoor activities also available which includes chess, bowling, gaming zone, etc. Those who want to party hard, Zouk night club is the best option.   
                              
You can even learn dancing or practice yoga near the main pool. One can also enjoy the World class entertainment shows at the Zodiac theatre, but don’t miss to book in advance.
If you are a foodie, than you will be in seventh heaven to see what variety the cruise offers you. Food at dream cruises is really like a dream. 

You can enjoy cuisines from every part of the World. Lido is the best complimentary restaurant offering a huge variety of cuisines all over the World, you can even find quite a number of vegetarian options and even there is a counter for Jain vegetarian if you avoid onion and garlic in your meal. Thus, cruise takes care of everyone’s taste buds. Apart from Lido and other complimentary restaurants, there are many other restaurants and food joints offering variety of food items 24*7.
Thus, in our view if you want to enjoy every aspect of luxury, every aspect of adventure and thrills and every aspect of fun in life than surely try cruising in your life. You will get an experience of a lifetime which you will never forget.
ENJOY YOUR LIFE ENJOY CRUISING........

     On one hand, Buggies Street is a great destination for budget shopping. Its a great thing that prices are quite cheap, but the quality of goods is very nice.

It has a vibrant mall culture with all major World–wide brands, marking their presence at this place. You can spend hours and hours here, hopping from one shopping mall to the other. Don’t miss the architectural wonder- “Ion Mall”. If you have a good shopping budget, than you will be un-stoppable there. You can even enjoy window- shopping here if your pocket say a no-no for luxury shopping. An evening walk at the Orchard road is also a great catch, you will be mesmerized with the dazzling lit-up malls and performances of street artists.
       By the evening you would be tired like hell, and will be in a mood to have a relaxed time along with enjoying the beauty of Singapore.
