My views/experience about the destination
A popular weekend getaway for people from mumabi. Matheran is a very nice & quiet hill station for trekking. It has many point around 30-40. It is very good place for athletes. Very close to Mumbai and ideal stress buster. Matheran is one the best weekend destination in Maharashtra. The weather is pleasantly cold through out the year. Thousands of visitors visit the place every week. No cars!! No traffic, no noise, no pollution, Matheran is what a hill station should be. Board a train from Mumbai CST (Karjat or Khopoli local) to nerel about 2hrs. of journey. From nerel either toy train or shuttle cab.cab will take 20 minutes.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
You will get mostly all types of Indian Food. Just relax and enjoy the weather. Echo Point, Panorama Point (Sunrise Point), Porcupine Point (Sunset Point), One tree Hill, Garbut Point, Heart Point, Rambag Point, Charlotte Lake are some of the places to visit. Matheran has a very small market place. Matheran is most famous for its 'chikki', a strongly recommended purchase.
My advice to fellow travellers
Get a Karjat of Khopoli bound train from Mumbai CST and get down at Neral. From Neral you can get a joyous ride to hills in the mini train. By road you can reach only upto Dasturi. From there you have to walk on your feet or you can ride on horse back or hand pulled rickshaw. You The best time to go to Matheran is probably from September to June as the monsoons get really heavy during the rest of the year.

Date of Trip : 2010-04-08 | Destination visited : Kenya
Traveller rating
0 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Kenya is a must visit for people who emjoy wildlife amd if not then they will certainly start loving it...it gave us a chance to be in the wilderness and experience nature at its best. The mighty King of the Jungle - The Lion was at its best and surely a must see in its natural habitat...If given a chance visit Kenya during the migration when animals migrate from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. Kenya certainly is a destination for both backpackers for whom various campsites are available and for luxury travellers with best of properties like the Fairmont Mt. Kenya Safari Club being one of the many!!!
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The food is amazing in Kenya with options of game meat, normal continental and ofcourse for the Indian clientele our very own desi khana...A must visit for amazing food is The Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi. Sightseeing would mainly be the national parks and when in Masai Mara dont miss the Masai Village which gives one the insight into the life of the local Masai Tribe and their daily lifestyle. One must certainly pick the souvernirs there of the BIG FIVE along with some handmade costume Masai Jewellery made in the Masai Village.
My advice to fellow travellers
Kenya is a relatively save place now, but do not try to venture out along after the dark in the national park. Do carry a torch along and keep it handy at all times. Yellow fever vaccination is a must and should be taken minimum 10 days prior to departing to Kenya. Do carry photocopies of your yellow fever vaccination certificate along with the original as the same might be asked at the immigrations once you land in India.

Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
It was my dream to visit Leh. Ideal place for a trekker. Beautiful place up in the mountain ranges of the Himalayas and lots of activities to do. For a regular traveler it can be a nice place to relax and take in the fresh air (just what we wanted)
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The local food is yummy..simple and delicious...their famous momos is a must have.. do not miss the German Bakery! One can visit the dilapidated monasteries and the gompas. cute little lamas with red cheeks are the major attractions though! Shopping is good in leh if you prefer silver jewllery and pashminas which comes expensive. one must bargain though. dry fuits though are very cheap!
My advice to fellow travellers
Advisable to rest to start with. The climate gets on you. Drink lots of water even if you are not thirsty. Helps to keep the altitude sickness away. Wear sports shoes. girls, no heels. big big mistake!

Date of Trip : 2010-05-17 | Destination visited : Murud Janjira
Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Visiting the beach-town of ??Murud Janjira?? is akin to embarking on a historical voyage of discovery down the sands of time. A distance of 150 kms (it takes a little over 5 hours) separates this beautiful beach town from the city of Mumbai. Enjoy the drive along the rustic trail as you pass old towns and sleepy villages, enroute. As you approach Murud along the winding road, the beautiful coastline becomes visible on one side while the imposing ghats flank the other side. The sight of the waves lashing the white sandy beaches enlivens the soul as the pre-arrival excitement reaches a crescendo. The entrance to Murud town is heralded by a nondescript gate/post that announces the destination without any fanfare. The 2 kms long Murud beach is surprisingly clean and covered by white, firm sand interspersed with shades of black - remnants of silt left behind by the sea each time it recedes. While the sea is relatively calm here, the danger zone on one of its extreme ends is appropriately marked to warn the unwary tourist of the perils of the sea. There were no signs of any life-guard on the beach which only indicates that extra-caution needs to be exercised while frolicking in the sea. The water flaunts a dark hue possibly due to the colour of the silt that lies beneath. Don?t forget to feast your eyes on the sunset at the beach as dusk sets in stealthily. Sunset is beautiful and bathes the landscape in myriad hues of gold and orange.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The food at the resort was not only palatable; in fact it was a gourmet?s delight. We were pleasantly taken aback at the choice of dishes and more importantly, the veg/non-veg buffet meals served were consistently delicious throughout our stay, reinforcing our resolve to recommend this resort to all who would care to lend a ear. For those who enjoy sea-food, there are some mouth-watering treats awaiting you at the Golden Swan Resort. There is also plenty to choose from Indian Tandoori, Chinese and the spicy Konkani cuisine. There are other hotels in the vicinity that also (reportedly) serve great food but we were not tempted enough to sample their fare. The AC deluxe cottage that we stayed in was very decent; in fact it was value for money. The spacious rooms and bathrooms were well-maintained and clean. There is a bunk-bed in one of the rooms which, contrary to our expectations, turned out to be a king-sized bed large enough to sleep all six of us. The exclusive sit-out that this category of cottage offers doubles as your perch to soak in the beauty of the resort in addition to spending time together and enjoying snacks/beverages amidst natural settings. Additionally, there are a couple of independent/unreserved sit-outs within the resort for the guests occupying other accommodation types. While alcohol is not sold/served in the resort, one can enjoy a drink in the confines of the room or at the sitout. There is a small park for children within the resort that is replete with swings, hammocks, sea-saw, slides, et al. Beach-chairs are positioned at the periphery of the resort facing the water-front for that relaxing siesta/??Classic?-reading experience allowing the moist sea breeze to soothe the body, mind and soul. Ample parking space is provided within the resort premises for guest vehicles. As if symbolic to the resort?s name, swans frolic around the resort unperturbed by the human presence around. The resort provides direct access to the beach. Walk through the rear gate and down a flight of stairs to get to the beach. One can hire bicycles at nominal rates from the resort itself for a quick ride through the sleepy town or for the simple joy of cycling on the beach mesmerized by the sound of the waves lashing the shore. An array of bicycles are on offer (though not all in mint condition) for hire ranging from geared to the ungeared and in sizes suitable for all age/gender groups. You can also experience horse-riding and parasailing on the beach offered by local operators, at your own risk. Visit the 2 island forts in the vicinity - the Janjira and Kasa (Padmadurg) forts. The impregnable, oval-shaped Janjira Fort that successfully warded off multiple attacks of the mighty Maratha and the English is nothing short of an engineering marvel. It was constructed towards the end of the 17th century by Malik Amber an Abssynian minister serving the Sultan of Ahmednagar. It is rumoured that Shivaji lanched more than a dozen futile expeditions to capture the fort. The fort is spread over 22 acres of land with a 40 feet high wall and 19 towers some of which still have cannons mounted on them. The fort still houses the ruins of a mosque, a palace, a bath and a sweet-water well. A visit to the fort is a historical indulgence like none other. One can reach the main entrance of the fort by taking a short boat ride from Rajpuri Jetty. The Kasa fort was built by Sambhaji on a rock almost a mile into the sea, possibly as an attempt (vain though) to outdo the Janjira Fort. The fort lies sprawled across 8 ?? acres of land and offers visitors a brief glimpse of the fierce battles that ensued between the Siddis and the Marathas. The sight of the mighty canons still entrenched within the fort?s crumbling walls is indeed awe-inspiring. The fort is inaccessible for most of the year and the gates are opened only with prior permission from the Port Trust authorities. Visit the isolated 2km long Nandgaon beach with its sea front lined with palms. The approach to this beach is flanked by betel nut plantation and is not easily visible. While the winding, muddy road leading to the beach is not particularly impressive, the beach springs a surprise by suddenly appearing out of nowhere. Visit the nearby Siddhi Vinayak Ganesh Temple that has reportedly been in existence since 1036 AD and is thronged by devotees and tourists alike. Myth has it that the ??panchang? (Hindu calendar) is blessed by this particular Ganesha. Ahmedganj Palace ?ǣ This palace is the estate of the present Nawab of Murud but is out of bounds for unsolicited visitors. Spread across 45 acres, it reportedly has a mosque and the tombs of the previous rulers. One can however catch a glimpse of the architectural beauty of the palace from the outside. 4 kms from Murud is the 100 feet high Garambi Waterfalls ?ǣ a popular picnic spot. The water from the scenic falls is supposedly pure enough to drink. Marvel at the falls, drench yourself to the skin and listen to the thunderous roar of the water gushing down in torrents. Nestled in the woods, this cascade is a delight to behold and one can spend hours watching the beauty of nature unfolding. Situated at a distance of about 4 kms is Khokri, home to the 3 massive 500 year old stone tombs of the erstwhile rulers of Janjira ?ǣ Surul Khan, Yakut Khan and Khairiyat Khan. These tombs built in the Indo-Saracenic style fall under the auspices of the Archeological Survey of India. Sample the popular Murud sweets, coconut chikki and barfi readily available in the local markets. In case you happen to visit Murud during summer, don?t forget to buy a box of Alphonso mangoes grown within the resort, for a steal.
My advice to fellow travellers
A great place to hibernate when you desperately need that ??break? from the rigours of daily life. It offers a blend of rich historical experiences and absolute tranquility by the shores of a not-so-tempestuous sea. Don?t forget to carry your own booze if you intend staying at the Golden Swan Resort else you may have to request the house-keeping staff to source them from the local market albeit at a premium.

Delhi is a city of contracts.on one hand are Delhi's winding streets,passing through mosques,monuments,forts,lively and colorful bazaars with all sorts of items at steal prices,food stalls etc..while on the other hand,The imperial city of New Delhi displays the finely curved architecture of British Raj.The grand avenues and stately buildings of New Delhi are rich with history and culture.This city has something for every taste.You can find some gr8 nightclubs,theaters,restaurants,hotels etc. across the city...
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
This is the place to be for every shopaholic & food lover..Plethora of options to fit every wallet.karol bagh , Khan Market, Dilli haat,Sarojini Nagar are some good shopping areas.For high-end shoppers,take a trip to DLF Emporium..The most basic Dhaba has delectable food at gr8 prices.Visit the paratha gully(in Chandni Chowk) to savour the most unusual parathas & brilliant chaats..If History & culture interests you,must visit Red fort,india gate,Raj ghat,Qutub Minar,Aksar dham,Lotus Temple,Gandhi Smruti,National rail museum,Rajpatrh,Moghul gardens(only in Feb) etc...A trip on Metro is good fun..If have time also delhi monuments by the night as they are well lit up & have a charm of their own..the various museums across the city are worth a visit..also check if there are some exhibitions(eg:auto expo) happening while visiting....
My advice to fellow travellers
Bargain/Negotiate for better deals everywhere.Take a trip on the Metro.Check on the days you choose as some great places remain closed on particular days.@Females:please wear decent clothes. Dont travel alone late in the night.
