People are busy thinking about their New Year resolutions, spending time with friends and family, celebrating winters, shopping on discounted prices, and making plans to visit amazing and incredible places on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Talking about the New Years, I have collected these gorgeous places in India that you must visit to welcome 2018 with your friends and family.

Here is the list of these gorgeous places to visit in India to celebrate New Year

Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh

This beautiful snow-laden place has a colonial charm. Beautiful deodar forests, chilly snow-capped mountains, and the national Himalayan winter expedition makes this place perfect to visit in December. Located at an elevation of 2,400 meters above sea level, the beauty and charm of Dalhousie are as natural as a newly born child.

If you need some peace away from the hustle bustle of party people on New Year’s, you can take your stay Khajjiar, Chamba district, located at a distance of 24 km from Dalhousie. It is also known as mini Switzerland for its captivating beauty and similar appearance.

Patnitop, Jammu & Kashmir

Located in the Udhampur district of Jammu & Kashmir, Patnitop is as beautiful as any other part of our golden bird Kashmir. However, there is something that makes it best for spending your new year’s eve.

What could be more enthralling than welcoming a new year with beautiful snowfall?

This hilltop station always experiences a heavy snowfall on 31st December every year without fail.

Talking about Christmas, no place can replace Goa. Filled with Roman Catholic population and it’s Portuguese legacy, Goa celebrates Christmas and New Year with full zeal and excitement. Mouth-watering sweet fragrances of Bakeries, fresh wines, and the beach vibes, and a lot of sing carols everywhere, you won’t find any of these at no other place but Goa. It’s already the party capital of India, but Christmas and New Year of Goa is to die for; Long night parties, no chilling snow but the ambiance itself is chilling and full of freedom. If liberty lies anywhere in India, it’s in Goa.

Ha-Ha, Also Goa being my favorite destination, I recommend it for New Year celebration. 😉

Dawki, Shillong

The only hill station accessible from all sides of India is Shillong. The beauty of shilling is not hidden from anybody, but Dawki has a place you must visit in December. The Unmgot river of Dwaki has crystal clear water which makes the boats, on the surface of the water, seem to be flying in mid-air. The pleasant weather and juicy oranges selling at the river shore adds more to the fun.

Not only that, but a lot many festivals are organized here in the month of December such as Pinjera Festival, Tura Winter Festival, and more.

Binsar, Uttarakhand

Binsar is located in the sky touching peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul, and Pachachuli. It’s one of the best places to visit in December. Chilling mountains, dense forests, and incredible wildlife sanctuary makes it a captivating town. However, the real beauty of the place lies in the Zero Point of Binsar. It offers the panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks such as Kedarnath and Nanda Devi.

Being a writer, I just love the peace and beauty this beautiful place in Uttarakhand offers.

Truind Trek

(Recommended by a Wanderluster like us 🙂 Soon will be sharing his recent experience at this amazing place)


Truind is an amazing destination and a trekking paradise. In winters, this place is not less than a heaven. Located at just 18km from the famous hill station Dharamshala, this place is a bliss for trekkers and travelers. And yes, camping at this beautiful destination, you will never regret.  So, if you're interested in welcoming new year by camping with your friends. You must visit this place, and it is easily reachable for all Delhi people.

So, Dilli Walon!! What are you waiting for?
Stop reading and book your tickets now.

Talking about the beauty of India, the list is not small. But these places are among the best to enjoy your beautiful holidays of winter with your loved ones.

I always believe:

Ask any Delhiite or anyone who has been there once, you’d know what Sarojini market actually is. I have been there millions of times and I still crave to go there whenever I find the time.

Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh – Sangla | Chitkul | Kalpa

Delhi to Sangla Valley and Chitkul - Tragic but totally worth it!

Our trip to Kinnaur Valley started with the tragedies of metro train breakdown in Delhi. Moving ahead, our bus (Delhi to Shimla) broke down just before 80kms before Shimla. After waiting for two hours, we finally got a lift from a person traveling from Chandigarh to Shimla. We were already running quite late.

Taking a shortstop in between to get fresh, finally, we reached Shimla after 4 hours at 1 pm.Not delaying any further we quickly had lunch in Shimla, called the taxi we booked online and left from Shimla at 2:30 pm.

After a beautiful yet tiring road trip, we reached Jeori at around 7 pm. I was not left with any energy to travel any further. We stopped at various points to enjoy the scenic beauty of huge valleys and river Sutlej.

But the whole journey was through the valleys and all round and round, motion sickness took over me. I became so frustrated that I thought of returning back to home for a while but then my desire to explore took over my frustration.

We took a hotel at Jeori. It was well maintained and a good hotel with an amazing view of mountains. There were only 2-3 hotels in Jeori. Though the hotel was a bit costly then after convincing a lot he agreed with a fair price of INR. 1200 for a night for one room.

We visited a beautiful temple near our hotel.

Temple at Jeori
On the way to Sangla Valley


There was also a hot water spring just in front of the temple. We visited the temple and then sat near the hot water spring putting our legs in the hot water. It was such a bliss. After half an hour, we came out. Surprisingly, there was no one on the road and even lights also became dim, so we preferred to be on safer side and returned back to the hotel. After a deep sleep of 8 hours, we left from Jeori at around 7 am in the morning.

In around an hour, we reached a village where we had breakfast of Aloo Paranthas and butter at a small Dhaba. A Nepali family of 2 sisters and their parents ran the Dhaba. I was amazed by the beauty and cuteness of the Nepali girl who served the breakfast. I had a small talk with her and then I asked her if she would like a picture with me.

She agreed with a cute smile and tiny eyes, which reminded me of Paresh Ha-ha… He looks exactly same even though he is not Nepali. The girl was really sweet. She wished us happy journey for the trip ahead when we left.

The journey from Jeori to Sangla took around 4 hours including a break of half an hour for breakfast.

Trip to Sangla Valley, Himachal Pradesh

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in India, Travel

Sangla Valley, a small yet beautiful village located in the Kinnaur valley. It is also known as Baspa Valley as the Baspa river flows through the valley. You can see a lot of apple farms all around the village. People here are very nice and have a big heart.

Places to stay in Sangla Valley

Sangla was very raw and there were hardly any places to stay before but now there are a lot of hotels. These are some hotels to stay in Sangla Valley - Hotel  Apple Pie, Hotel Royal Castle, Rupin River View, Hotel Rolling Rang and more.

Sangla Valley
Sangla Valley - Hotel is just behind me 

I took a hotel at Sangla at a very cheap price. The hotel was not luxurious but had an amazing view of the Himalayan peaks from the window and we got all the basic utilities including hot water geyser.

Personal Suggestion: If you’re looking for a budget trip, book hotels on the spot. You will easily find a good hotel room in Rs. 600-700 only.

Did I forget to mention?

Weather at Sangla Valley was very cold even in the month of June. Even there was snow all over the peaks during the night but at daytime, there was a mild sunlight but still cold enough to wear a jacket. The best months to visit Sangla Valley are April to October.

Though there is not much to visit in the village, the raw beauty of village makes you fall in love with the place. No hustle-bustle, no traffic, no pollution, the place is full of natural beauty and peace.

We checked into the hotel and left for some of the must-visit places in Sangla Valley.

Best places to visit in Sangla Valley

Kamru Fort is the oldest fort in Himachal Pradesh is located at a peak over the altitude of 2600 meter above sea level. You can either cover the 2km distance from Sangla Valley by car, but I would suggest you walk through the steep village and explore the beautiful Sangla Meadows.

On the way to Kamru Fort, Sangla Valley

We found a lot of Apple and Apricot farms our way to Kamru fort.

After reaching 1km, I was completely exhausted and Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) took me. No matter how hard I tried, I could not move a bit more until I threw up.  But when we reached the top visiting the beautiful Kamakshi Devi Temple on the way, the feeling was an achievement.

Kamakshi Devi Temple

It was ecstatic to see the complete view of beautiful Sangla village from the top.

The beautiful Himachali lady was guarding the temple.

She was old but energetic. When I asked her how she manages to come daily to the fort and leave to her place, she mentioned she comes in the Dev Palki – a traditional Himachal hammock which carries their Dev(God)  that comes in the morning for worship and in the evening she leaves on her own.

The entrance gate was huge and heavy – made of iron and Tibetan wood.

The fort is 800 years old and is known for housing the Kamakshi Devi Temple that came before Kamru Fort.

There was also Tibetan Wood Carving Center on the way.

Tibetan wood Carving Center( hehe... welcomed by Gau Mata)

The most important thing to be noted is that the whole fort is made of either Tibetan wood or black mountain stones.

Next, I visited the famous Bering Nag Temple in Sangla.

The place is a must visit for its wonderful architecture and location at the bank of Baspa River. The temple can be reached through the stairs that go straight from the Sangla village market to the bank of Baspa River. The architecture of this temple will definitely leave you in awe.

Some really nice Himachali people I met on the way

Food and Shopping at Sangla Valley

Coming to the food and shopping, since it is a small village you’ll find limited options for food and basic shopping. There is a bridge that leads to the main market area of Sangla where you will find small Chinese restaurants and cafes. At most of the places, you’ll find Momos, Thukpa, and Noodles. If you need proper Indian food, inform your hotel in advance, they’ll get it cooked for you. Make sure you reach back your hotel by 7 pm, as it is always cloudy and the sun sets very soon due to high mountains covering the village.

Sangla Valley

And, this is how my one day at serene and calm Sangla Valley came to an end. I spent some time in the lap of nature at night and after a good night sleep, we left for Chitkul next day.

Read more about Chitkul – the last village located at Indo-Tibetan and Indo-China border in my next post at Crave to Explore.

Trip to Chitkul Village in Himachal Pradesh

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in India, Travel

Chitkul, a small village deep in the Kinnaur Valley, but definitely… not less than a heaven.

It is indeed one of my favorite places in India. Have you been to Chitkul? If yes, you must very well know about the mesmerizing beauty of this last inhabited village on the Indo-Tibetan border and the village is quite close to China. If you haven’t been there yet, you need to go there. Trust me, you’ll thank me forever for this.

Till the time you aren’t visiting this beautiful place, let’s travel virtually. Follow me 😉

How to reach Chitkul?

There are various ways to reach there. Chitkul is 600 Kilometers from Delhi. So, the most affordable and comfortable way is to take an overnight bus from Delhi to Shimla. From Shimla, you can hire a cab. We hired a cab online at an effective cost but after negotiating a lot.

If you are looking for a cheap trip, you can always get a local bus from Delhi to Shimla and then Shimla to Chitkul. Every morning a bus leaves from Shimla to Chitkul and charges around Rs. 450. But my personal suggestion is not to make your journey too hectic. In the bus, it takes around 1 day and if you take a private cab as we did, it takes 20 hours.

However, my plan was a bit different and generally, it should be that way. If you’re going so far, you must visit all the beautiful valleys of Kinnaur. We first went to Sangla, Chitkul, and then Kalpa.

Read more about the complete trip itinerary and backpacking tips for Kinnaur trip - Sangla | Chitkul | Kalpa

Our beautiful experience at Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh

On our Kinnaur trip, our day 2 was dedicated to this last village at Indo-Tibetan Border. We started our journey from Sangla Valley at 7 am. As we left Sangla (23kms away from Chitkul), our whole journey was itself something tremendous. The Baspa river was flowing through our entire journey.

Baspar river that meets river Satluj flowing through China to India. We could clearly see the glaciers forming the river.

You know what I loved the most, there was no mobile network in Chitkul and Rakcham. You are totally away from the cacophony of the whole world.

Where to stay?

Ibex Tent, Rakcham - Early Morning

On our way to Chitkul, we booked our night stay in Ibex Tents at the exit of Rakcham village (10kms before Chitkul). The location of tents is incredible lying exactly at the center with snow-capped mountains all around the village.

Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh

You can also stay in Chitkul, there are 2 -3 hotels and café but you won’t find much to eat.

Check out our video on Ibex Tents, Rakcham:

Initially, we were listening to road trip songs in our car but then the natural echoes pulled us deeply. Huge rock bizarre mountains on one side, on another side, huge valley, a stream of waterfalls, snowy peaks, and chirping of beautiful words.

Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh
Finally, Chitkul it is...

Finally, we reached Chitkul at around 10 am roaming around and enjoying the scenic beauty of dense forest of Rakcham to Chitkul.

Scenic like a movie scene

We saw a lot of Pinusgerardiana (Chilgoza) and Apricot trees on the way. Also, a lot of deodar trees which are used to create lavish furniture and wooden houses.

Chitkul has created an immense name in India only because of its pure beauty. It has scenic as well as the natural beauty that leaves you in Awe.

What to eat?

As we were hungry, we went to a café located at the extreme end of the village. There are hardly 2 cafes in Chitkul. The one we went to was the best due to its location and colorful ambiance. Though you won’t variety of food in Chitkul, they served delicious aloo paranthas, butter bread, and if you eat eggs then omelet and boiled eggs and yes not to forget Maggie noodles and tea. It was a small yet beautiful café with outside sitting arrangement. All the tables and chairs placed in the shadow of rainbow umbrellas.

Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh
Cafe at Chitkul

Lush green mountains could be seen from the front while on the back side, the tiny Chitkul village is located with all wooden Tibetan houses.

Beautiful Chitkul Village

Even that café had accommodation facility and in fact, many Israeli people stayed there too.

Places to visit in Chitkul

After spending time there, we visited the monastery of Chitkul.

And then I spent some “me” time at the corner of a closed monastery.

Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh
Ancient Temple at Chitkul

It was located a bit on the top from where I could enjoy the view of the whole village and all the beautiful mighty mountains.

Soon, it began pouring down.

Once the rain stopped, I went near the Sangam of two beautiful rivers – Satluj and Baspa.

I ain't going back...

Being Artistic...

Near the parking area, there is a small shop (tapir) which is named as The Last Dhaba and there is a signboard which mentions Chitkul as “The last village”.

Though Chitkul used to be the last village at India-China border, now there are other villages that are much closer, one of them is Nako.

This village and stay at Rakcham totally changed my life. People say, Travel helps you discover yourself and this place very well proved it for me.

Experience of traveling to Chitkul helped me evolve and then turned me into a writer.

If I had time, I would lie there forever – Green Meadows, Apple Farms, Glaciers, Forest, Snow, monasteries, wooden cottages, mighty Himalayan mountains, and behind these mountains lied a different country.

I can’t describe more, you need to be there. A must… must visit place.

Next, we visited Reckong Peo and Kalpa – it is the same village of Kinnaur, where the shooting of Bollywood Film “Highway” was done. This village offers you the closest view of Kinner Kailash peak or Kinnaur Kailash. To know more about this place, stay posted to Crave to Explore.

Leh, India (Jammu and Kashmir)

Though Jammu and Kashmir is entirely the beauty bone of India. However it is not possible to reach all the places at once. So, it’s time to pick up the best one. I personally recommend Leh as the most beautiful and romantic place in India. It may not be a honeymoon destination for everyone but Leh is the perfect place to experience the crystal clear water, desert, lush green mountains and dark hills all at one. India is famous for its authentic culture and Leh gives you the complete experience of Indian culture.

These are some of the most romantic places on Earth. The world is full of enthralling, beautiful destinations and exploring each place is quite not possible at least in a short duration. So, if you need any more information about any of your dream destination, to go for honeymoon or to arise your love more deeper, feel free to leave a comment and I’d be happy to help.

I always believe:

The must visit place near Kasol: Tosh Village, Himachal Pradesh

Posted on 12 CommentsPosted in Travel

The top most village with an incredible view of Parvati Valley.

Tosh is the top most and probably the last village connected to the end of Parvati Valley. It lies at the height of around 7900 feet. If you are visiting Kasol then going for a trek to Tosh village is one of the most required things to do in Kasol.

Mostly Europeans and Israelis come to visit tosh to enjoy fresh Marijuana. But I would recommend everyone to visit Tosh if you are truly a nature lover and enjoy spending time with locals.

Kasol to Tosh

Starting early in the morning, we took a bus of 8 am from Kasol to Manikaran. And from Manikaran we changed the bus for Barshaini.

The whole bus journey to Barshaini was quite an adventure. The bus was continuously going up through the steep and narrow patch. While one side was covered with mountains the other side had a huge deep valley. As we moved up, we could see the distance covered lagging behind. The view was incredible with the deep valley, lush green mountains, ripples of water on the tree leaves, snow clad mountains far from the valley, and at the extreme bottom... river flowing with crystal clear water making the stones on the surface visible even from such a height. The bus was running with full speed on narrow patches and turns. Hardly able to stay stable in my seat, I was trying my best to take a click of the view.

For around fifteen minutes, altitude sickness took over me. Poof! It was all ignorant when I stepped out of the bus and glared the view. A light rain was pouring down. We had a tea and glucose biscuits and then we left for the trek.

Ways to Trek to Tosh

There are two ways to trek till Tosh Village. Either you can go by the shortcut from the unpaved way through mountains which will have its own adventure or you can take the main road which will provide you the view of the valley on the whole way to Tosh. You can either go by walk which would take around half an hour or you can take a taxi directly starting from Kasol which will take you to Tosh.

I would suggest you trek yourself rather than taking the taxi to take the most of your trip.

Destination it is…

We reached in an hour to Tosh capturing a lot of pictures and playing with the snow in midways.

As we climbed up, a light snowfall started making the weather more cold and beautiful. As I was wearing a dark colored jacket, the white shining snow was clearly visible on it and in my hair.

Although we had a full day at Solang Valley in the snow, this experience of snowfall was mesmerizing. It’s a raw beauty of India with no commercialization. There was hardly any tourist apart from 3-4 groups of hikers.

As we reached the Tosh village parking area, there was a wooden bridge that we had to cross to reach inside the Tosh village.

The more I moved forward, the more I fell in love with the place.

Pink Floyd Cafe and Hill Top Cafe

Though both of these are simple but located on the corner of the hill gives you the beautiful view of Parvati Valley.

Local people have created these beautiful hillside homestays for tourists. We went to the Hill Top Café.

They provide clean, fresh and tasty food in extremely low price. From the balcony or rooftop of these home stays, you can view the snow-capped mesmerizing mountains and the huge valley. We ate like hungry monkeys.

We spent half of our time playing with cute, innocent and beautiful Himachal kids and then enjoyed photography on the roof top. Paresh and one of my friend were so involved in teaching the symbol of their favorite “Yo” to those little kids. Though the little kids hardly could make it with their little fingers they were happy and enjoying a lot, which made us even happier.

Farewell to the beauty of nature

We stayed there for around 2-3 hours. We could spend more time without thinking but due to lack of time left for the trip and our pre-bookings made at Kasol, we had to say goodbye to such a heavenly beauty of nature.

While returning, we took the unpaved adventurous way to return back to the base village. There we had a tea at the small tapir nearby and then we took the next bus back to Kasol.

Budget required

Well! Technically we spent hardly 1000 bucks which included bus fare, breakfast, lunch, and tea for four people.

So if you are visiting Kasol, Kullu and Manali, you hardly need a budget to visit such a beautiful place.

Personal Recommendation

Planning to visit Tosh Village?

You can go ahead and follow my plan but take one more day with you so that you’ll get to spend a night on those hill sided home stays. The village is free from pollution and crowd.

Nothing can give you more pleasure than lying in the lap of nature far away from the cacophony of this fast world and gazing at the twinkling shiny stars clearly visible without any layer of pollution hiding them. You can easily get a room in just Rs.300 to Rs.400.

Let's see where our destiny takes us next. Moreover, I always believe:

           "Once a year, go someplace you have never been before"
