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.
Yes I would recommend this destination to fellow travellers

Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
'Harishchandra Fort' is hill station like Mahabaleswar of Nagar District! It lies, on the boundary of Thane, Pune and Nagar and on the left hand side of 'Malshej Ghat'. If you want to study of fort, this is one of the best example. Height: 4000 Feet Ghat: Maleshj Ghat District: Ahamed Nagar History:- 'Harishchandra Fort' is more than three and half thousand years old. In 1747-48 this fort was won by 'Maratha' Empire from 'Mughal' and 'Late Krushnagi Shinde' was appointed as care taker. How to reach:- From Pune drive via 'Aalephata' and from Mumbai you can drive via 'Kalyan-Murbad-Malshej Ghat' and reach to 'Khubiphata'. After reached 'Khubiphata' you have to walk on the dam to reach 'Khireshwar Village' (Khubiphata-Khireshwar Village - 5 km/1 hrs). From 'Khireswar Village' one needs to walk for 1 km to reach 'Nageshwar Mandir'. This is the oldest temple since in eleventh sanctuary, and is the starting point of the trek. To reach the top of 'Harishchandra Fort' via 'Tular Khind' takes 4 hrs (If you start from 'Khireshwar Village').
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Place for visiting:- 'Harischandra Temple'- Via 'Tolar Khind' you will be reach 'Rohidas Fort'. From 'Rohidas' it takes one and half hour to reach at 'Taramati Fort'. At bottom the 'Taramati Fort' there is 'Harishchandra Temple'. Just behind the Temple there is small cave. Once you enter the cave one can see an underground room. This is where 'Chandev Rishi' wrote his 'Tatvasar Grantha'. 'Kedareshwar Cave' ?σΤιΌΤΗ£ On the left side of 'Harishchandra Temple', there is one more cave called the 'Kedareshwar Cave'. In this cave there is an ancient 'Shivlinga' which is 1 meter high and 2 meter wide. If you have to reach to 'Shivilinga' you have to cross water which is 4-5 feet deep in the rainy season. It takes 5 minutes for one round of the 'Shivilinga' and water is very cold (During the Rains). 'Taramati Fort'- 'Taramati Fort' is 4850 feet high. There are 7 caves at the bottom of Taramati Fort. In one of the cave there is a 'Ganesh Idol' which is 8 feet in height and is called the 'Ganesh Cave'. 'Konkan Kada'- 'Konkan Kada' is a main attraction for trekkers. It's 4500 feet from the bottom. This is best sunset point during winter. One younger committed suicide from here - saying that he doesn't want live without this beauty of nature. In his memory his name is written there in marble. Living Arrangement: 7 Caves are there for night camp Foods and Drinking Water: Available at 'Khireshwar Village' and on the top of the Fort Traveling journey time: Takes 4 hrs from 'Khireshwar Village' by coming from Pune and Mumbai
My advice to fellow travellers
Visit this place once in lifetime which is heaven on the earth especially in rainy season

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.

Date of Trip : 2010-07-03 | Destination visited : Thailand
Traveller rating
0 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Thailand is relatively a very common destination for tourists who want to travel international from India. Pattaya as such is an OK place but not be missed a visit to the Coral Island & the Alcazar Show. People say Bangkok is a shoppers paradise...not really as per me. Better stuffs are available in India these days, but do visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha there.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Thai food will not be liked by all Indians, but certainly do try the same atleast once for the experience. Indian food is widely available with Indian restaurants available at every corner. Must do sightseeing in Pattaya - Coral Island, Underwater World & Alcazar Show. Do walk for experience on the Walking Street there. City tour in Bangkok can certainly be given a miss. Visit Indra Market & Pratunam for cheap shopping for clothes, bags, watches & shoes. Branded shopping can be done in MBK Mall, Siam Paragon and various other high end malls.
My advice to fellow travellers
Do bargain during shopping and also if you wish to take the local Tuk Tuk in Bangkok & Pattaya. If you have travelled to other destinations like Singapore etc, then you will certainly not like Thailand.

Traveller rating
4 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Lonavala is one of the most popular weekend destinations from Mumbai. For me, Lonavala is a one of the most beautiful place in Maharashtra. It is surrounded by green hills of Sahyadris valleys, waterfalls and pleasant cool winds. From Mumbai to Lonavala it will take 3 hrs to reach.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The main visited place is Bhushi Dam & tiger point. A couple of waterfall and lakes are there. Half way between lonavala and amby valley is the tiger point. There are lots of small waterfalls between lonavala and amby valley. There are so many big resorts and restaurants. Lanavala chikki is very famous.
My advice to fellow travellers
Rainy season is the right time to trip here. Place to see: Rajmachi point, Tungarli lake, Valavan Dam, Lonavala Lake, Karla Caves, Bhushi Dam, Tiger point?σΤιΌ?ͺ

My views/experience about the destination
M - Magnificent A - Airy N - Nonchalant A - Arresting L - Lovely I ?σΤιΌΤΗ£ indifferent We reached our hotel - Lords Regency- in the morning. After settling down, we decided to explore the in-&-around the hotel. The hotel is located approximately 0.5 kms from main town on Manali-Rohtang Pass route, with gushing Beas river on one side and calm-&-passive hills rising majestically on the other. Hotel staff was very accommodating & cooperative. And hotel - no words to explain. We had been Hadimba Devi Temple. Surrounding the temple is a forest, where you can take leisurely walk and enjoy its beauty, but of course after paying a minimal entrance fee. You can also have a glance of Angora Rabbits & Yak. The next day we had been to Rohtang pass .It was full day trip. We started early in the morning. Weather was also pleasant. One thing to keep in mind do not forget to carry heavy woolen clothes - jacket, gloves. You can even hire these on the way. But careful about quality since lot many people use them so always take precaution. If possible carry your own stuff. Best time to Visit is between March to June
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food at Manali is very good and a bit expensive. This place is dotted with German bakeries that sell delicious goodies- brownies, cheesecakes, mouthwatering, soft , sweet rolls of bread sprinkled with raisins, cinnamon and sugar, these are available in almost all the bakeries.
My advice to fellow travellers
An excellent place & highly recommended

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.

Traveller rating
4 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
one of the most beautiful places on the planet ..its perfect for everything from a family holiday to a romantic trip or an adventure expedition....neslted in Himalayas, Sikkim has a gr8 view form evry spot..
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food is a delight if you are a non vegetarian.However there are fairly enough options for vegetarians as well..the Momos are a must have & are readily available throughout the state..We visited the Changu lake,which is like a half day picnic..its a beautiful glacial lake located at 12000ft above the sea level..The yumthang valley is also a must visit but needs an overnight stay...there are lots of monasteries around sikkim but the Rumtek monastry is very famous...there isnt much shopping in Sikkim except local items or souveniers..if have the time visit the nathula pass(ahead of Changu lake).its the India-China border..
My advice to fellow travellers
Carry walking shoes as most of the terrian is hilly...also carry adequate warm clothes as its pretty cold esply when one goes to Nathula pass, changu lake & Yumthang Valley.......
Yes I would recommend this destination to fellow travellers
