Indian Railways play a critical role in transporting Indian passengers across the country. While the majority of the train network is covered on the plains of Indian soil, there are certain rail networks that climb up the steep mountains of India. These train networks are designed to carry up and bring down passengers and goods with safety and comfort, so speed is not really a major factor here. This post is a part of the series on Indian Railways. In my previous post I talked about how to travel conveniently by train in India followed by top 5 heritage and luxury trains in India, but this time, we go up the hills and mountains and discover how these trains evolved in the first place.
Winter is the best time for weddings in India as many people get relief from the torturing Indian heat and humidity that one can experience throughout the year. Many couples across India prefer to marry during the winter season because they get the right time to experience the best time of their life. Although, I never really believe that you need to choose a season for getting married, but surprisingly even I got married in December so I am not going to say that and I will go with the saying that winter is the best time to get married and experience honeymoon in the chilly weather when the mercury drops and the heat factor fades out in thin air. Many honeymoon couples prefer to escape from the plains into high snowy white peaks and mountains where they can witness the snowfall and enjoy throwing snowballs at each other. Unfortunately, not all parts of India receive snow so here are some winter honeymoon destinations and places that can offer you the best wintry honeymoon experience.
I think the monsoon this year was a bit too harsh on India as many states across the country saw flooding situations and recently we all heard about the Phailin cyclone that stormed in from the Bay of Bengal ripping apart many parts of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. Well, sitting down here in Mumbai, I can feel the heat and humidity factor soaring up and that also means that autumn is here and many people in the plains would look out for some holiday destinations where they can chill out and relax. On the other hand, Diwali is just two weeks away so there will be many people like me that would pack their bags and head off to some cool places to celebrate Diwali in style. While most people celebrate Diwali by visiting their relatives and friends but if you have plans to take some time off from your hectic work and heading to some holiday destinations you can look out for these places for getting that right peace of mind.
Bordered by Jammu and Kashmir on the north, Himachal Pradesh has always been known for its snow clad mountains and chilly hill stations that can beat the Indian heat hands down. The name of the state literally means In the Lap of the Snow and that is why Himachal Pradesh is so popular with tourists from all over the country and internationally as well. As per my personal travel experience, I believe it is a great substitute for all those who cannot afford Jammu and Kashmir which can get quite out of hand at times. The accommodation in Himachal Pradesh is not as expensive as you can find in Jammu and Kashmir although both the locations offer some really great travel experience for honeymooners. These days I am more focused on honeymoon travels as some of my readers are newly married couples and I would like to offer my readers with more honeymoon travel destinations and options that can help them to have the best time possible. It gives me so much pleasure when they comment and appreciate; it’s more than what I can ask for. So, here I go on top 5 best honeymoon destinations in Himachal Pradesh that can offer you value for money experience.
New Delhi is nothing less than chaos during the monsoon season with all that traffic jams and floods that occur in the low lying areas, but I think that is not exactly what Delhi has to offer to its residents and all the people that visit the capital city during the rainy season. I believe every city in the world is very much like that especially in India where people from various small towns and villages land up in metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi for work and to earn their livelihood and on top of it the poor civic administration that does very little to resolve city’s complex problems. Well, I am not here to talk on social and political issues but instead I would like to highlight some great monsoon weekend getaways that are near New Delhi that can help my readers to get out of this urban cacophony and all the stress that they build up during the week.
