          Khajuraho is a destination to put on your bucket list
          Khajuraho is one of the most astonishing and interesting monumental complexes I have ever visited, and I would rank it with Angkor, Petra, the Athenian Acropolis, etc. Although notorious for its depiction of the Kama Sutra on the outside of some temples, there is a lot more than that to these buildings. It helps to go with a guide who can explain the icongraphy. This is powerful architecture. In addition, there are some excellent hotels and restaurants in the area, as well as several other attractions, including the volcanic gorges at Raneh Falls 20km outside of town and the eye-popping museum of Tribal Art that is in town (with its Mock village of colorful houses and psychedelic art that rivals anything in Africa or Mexico).

          Delhi to Taj Mahal and Elephant Rescue.
          Excellent and friendly service. On time pickup at your hotel. Everything is taken care of from gas, tolls, water, bathroom/food breaks, and exhibit tickets. Provider is very responsive via WhatsApp. Price was very reasonable. I initially planned to rent a car and drive myself but that would have been a terrible idea.

          Good and Bad
          We have visited this sanctuary many times over the years, and they have certainly invested a lot of money on improving the experience. The horticultural side is particularly beautiful. Many new enclosures for animals, though quite a few of the animals have disappeared, presumably died. Far less birds than there used to be. Attutude of the member of staff in the Watering Hole was appalling. What a slob!

          tremendous job by our guide
          Our tour guide "Jai" did a tremendous job keeping us engaged and enjoying while touring sites of new and Old Delhi. And then on top of it to learn about the lives of the people who live there. Plus there is chance to try local delicious food! You end up in a 400 year old old town still hiding the secrets of erstwhile "Mughal" era remains

          Great variety, good way to get introduced to Goa
          My wife and I got picked up in the morning from the Airbnb, even though it wasn't on the official list of pickup locations, which was a nice gesture. The guide and the driver were both very nice and accomodating. The places we went were all interesting and while we hoped for a bit more wildlife in the wildlife sanctuary, the park itself was a beautiful and peaceful place. The spice tour was educational and tasty, the temples were old and grand, and the craft shop had masterful merchants to pour verbal honey into anyone's ears - a pleasure to buy from them. Overall a nice experience.

          Definitely worth a visit !
          We drive to the Modhera Sun temple and Rani ki Vav at Patan from Ahmedabad, which was almost an entire day trip. The roads to Modhera and Patan are good except for small stretches of patchy construction work. Both these places are exquisite architectural marvels, depicting the Solanki style of architecture. The monuments are well preserved, and the surrounding areas are well maintained and clean including decent restroom facilities. Restaurants in the vicinity aren't great and this was definitely disappointing. We had lunch at a roadside dhaba, which surprisingly was quite nice. Would recommend leaving early from Ahmedabad if you want to cover both these places on the same day.

          Organized Chaos- old Delhi
          Jai took us into the labyrinth of Old Delhi. A tumbleweed of humans, monkeys, cables, and tuk-tuks. Very informative and detailed explanation of the culture and history of the merchant district. Jai also had an excellent knowledge of the broader landscape and history of India which put everything into perspective. We also engaged with several merchants - loved their stories! Well done , Jai.

          A Magical Tour of Mumbai!!
          We had an absolutely fabulous day touring the city of Mumbai with our fabulous guide, Arun and excellent driver, Mr. Daniel ! We were able to experience the open air laundry Dobi Ghat, the flower market, the local train, Dabbawalla-Tiffin lunch delivery, chai tea with ginger (delicious)! We also visited the fruit & veggie market, played the Indian Lottery and enjoy a delicious lunch at the Goa Portuguese restaurant before visiting the Djarvi Slum (Home of Slum Dog Millionaire). We were also provided opportunities to shop along our travels through the amazing Mumbai!!

          Enjoyable day out from North Goa
          A great day out visiting the sights of Goa. The wildlife sanctuary, spice farm and church were all within an hours drive of North Goa, making it an accessible day out. Our guide for the day was fantastic, very knowledgeable with local information and would highly recommend

          A really nice view of Goa
          The driver (Dattaraj) was on time, a nice guy and drove around Goa really smooth. The reach of things we got to see on a half day tour was really good, not too much, not too little.

        Valley of Flower

        Level : Moderate
        Distance : 38 km
        Time : 5-6 days (it can fluctuate as per weather conditions)

        Standing at 3250m ,valley of flower is one of the most beautiful and well known treks of India.Snuggled in the West Himalayan region of Uttarakhand, its trek goes through dense forests, along with Pushpawati river and can be reached by crossing many bridges, glaciers and waterfalls on the way.

        This glaring piece of nature is an Indian National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a part of the famous Nanda Devi Biosphere which exhibiting plush meadows blossomed with endemic alpine flowers and diverse fauna in this valley.
        The national park in the far interiors of Garhwal Himalayas (Uttarakhand) itself spread over 87.5 sq. Km.

        Other than having Blue Primula(Bhramkamal) in abundance, Valley also showcase flora like Meadow Geranium, Snake Foil, Hooked Stick Seed, Himalayan Rose, Blue Poppy, River Anemone, White Leaf Hog Foot, Dog Flower and also plays home to many rare & endangered species of animals like Asiatic black bear, brown bear, snow leopard, blue sheep, which serves to its exoticness and makes it a paradise for,botanists, photographers and nature lovers
        That's why thousands of people trek to this beautiful valley every year to witness this colorful drama of Nature as Valley changes colors throughout the season as per the blooming of various flowers.

        To reach the valley one has to trek from Govind Ghat, on the route to Hemkund Sahib which is at 4300m/14,100ft and serves as the highest point for the trek. It is an important pilgrimage for both Hindus and Sikhs, as well as for people from other faiths. There is a Sikh Gurudwara and a Lakshman temple built on the bank of the lake. Encircled by seven snow-clad peaks and their associated glaciers, it reflects its surroundings enchantingly on its crystal clear serene waters.

        Although its a short trek the steep at Hemkund Sahib can get a little lethargic at times , to make noone is left behind I , Khilap Singh as your trek leader will make sure we all walk on a similar pace and enjoy the Mesmerizing beauty of Nature in its full Glory.
        Along with the trek, we will also explore higher reaches around the valley and retrace the steps of Frank Smythe, the legendary mountaineer who discovered this valley by chance while coming down after a successful summit of Mt. Kamet IN 1931.
        This makes it all for more special.

        So Before making your mind please have a look at the Detailed literary for the trek as it will give you a fair idea of what you are getting into :

        Day 1 - Haridwar - Govindghat via Joshimath and Devaprayag (Drive 260km/ 10hrs)

        Day 2 - Trek from Govindghat to Ghangaria (Trek 14km/ 6 hrs)

        Day 3 - Trek from Ghangaria to Valley Of Flowers and back (Trek 5km, one-way/ 3hrs)

        Day 4 - Trek from Ghangaria to Hemkund Sahib (4,329m)

        Day 5 - Trek from Ghangaria to Govindghat
        Trekking

        Day 6 - Drive from Govindghat to Haridwar

        # Time we mentioned may fluctuate according to weather conditions or individual capacity of trekkers

        If you like what you read/saw, imagine how it would feel like to experience all this. We are just a call away.
