Many amazing places in and around Jaipur are still unexplored and away from the touristy crowd. It is common for first-time tourists to visit famous places like Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort, Jal Mahal...

In fact, it is fairly rare to find authentic Kashmiri restaurants in most cities. But if you wondering what to eat in Kashmir, I will put here the...

I think everyone has. So that made three versions of Srinagar. There is one that I had in my head, the one that I saw from the window of my plane. And then there was one that I saw standing inside the heart of the...

Well, I liked Gulmarg too. But unlike Gulmarg, people reside in Pahalgam. It is more like a village than just a tourist destination.

Gulmarg is gorgeous in every season - winters, springs, summer and autumn. The valley just changes colour with different degrees of clouds and mist hanging around. I am sure the place looks mindblowing in winters (and...
