GROUP TRAVELLING

Uncategorized

Travelling with a group of friends can be really exciting. Such trips are mostly adventurous and zealous at the same time.

There are different types of groups depending on their favourites. Some of such flavours are:

  1. Photography
  2. Cuisines
  3. Culture
  4. Archaeology
  5. Botany
  6. Geography
  7. Music

And many more.

 

In this article we are discussing all those types of trips that are generally preferred by groups.

 

  • Trekking: Trekking refers the long journeys on foot. They are usually planned through some wild and challenging ways. They are inclusive of walking up a wild mountain. They contain lots of risk factors. Trekkers need to have good knowledge about the location and the living organisms inhabiting the place. They build a temporary tent on their paths to rest during the nights. Every such group finds bliss amidst the wild nature. They have moments of bonfire and musical jam sessions. There are certain organisations that plan these trips and offer proper guides in the places. Some of such locations are:

 

  1. Inca Trail in Peru
  2. The Ansacocha Trail in Peru
  3. Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa
  4. Kungsleden in Sweden
  5. Pacific Crest Trail in California, United States
  6. Scottish National Trail, United Kingdom
  7. Roopkund Trek, Uttarkhand
  8. Chadar Trek, Ladakh
  9. Himalayas.
  10. Kedarkanta Trek, Uttarkhand

 

  • Paths that are less travelled by: These places include some beautiful geographic locations that we might have studied in our geography and history books. We love to explore anything new. Some of such Indian destinations might include:

 

  1. The Rann of Kutch in the western end of Gujarat.
  2. The longest and deepest caves of the world, located in Meghalaya offer some exclusive views for having various traps of forest hill caves.
  3. The Sundarbans in West Bengal. This is not only a forest along the Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta, but it also takes us closer to all its inhabitants starting from the tigers to crocodiles to the birds and fishes. Even the honeybees of this place are always busy gathering more nectar.
  4. The Thar desert. A journey to this place can actually make the pages of our books alive and all those tales might become true for a while. It also supports an exquisite amount of species that have adjusted themselves to the fragile conditions of the ecosystem of the place.
  5. The Western Ghats and the Eastern Ghats offer mesmerising scenic beauty.
  6. The various Biodiversity hot spots make travellers meet new species and organisms. This is all about learning more about nature.

 

  • Beaches: We think of beaches whenever the party mood strikes. Not only this, if it’s only about planning a weekend of relaxation, we would rather prefer a nearby beach than long tour to a distant land. Beaches are refreshing and soothing. They are so much fun. We can easily plan a bonfire night somewhere near the shore. Some of such famous locations in India are:

 

  1. Mandarmani
  2. Goa
  3. Digha and probably a lot more.

 

CRUISE HOLIDAYS

Uncategorized

Imagine a situation when there are back to back work schedules from one place to another and absolutely no time to rest. So, all those refreshments are reserved for the journeys. We can even plan a date or a group party. I’d prefer cruises for such unplanned holidays. They are an absolute bliss!

The first country that strikes my mind on an idea of boarding the best cruise would probably be Dubai.

Why?

Cruises from Dubai flaunt an exquisite luxury. Riches amidst the beauty of nature make it a wonderful combination. The lightings and the technology makes me think of even better adjectives.  Some of their cruises are:

  1. Seabourn Europe
  2. Nautica
  3. Azamara Journey
  4. Seven Seas Voyager
  5. Star Legend
  6. Crystal Symphony
  7. Silver Spirit
  8. Costa Mediterranea

 

There are all names of luxury cruises that offer countless beautiful memories through the trip. They are different from each other in their interiors, cuisines and culture.

 

Cruise Destinations in India

You haven’t really experienced a cruise holiday until the Indian destinations have been planned. India is a country of diverse culture and rich heritage. The cruises are luxurious and the water bodies make us feel at heaven. Here is a list of some of the famous Cruises in India.

  1. Glass Bottom Cruise: As prominent from its name, the bottom having made of glass offer spectacular views of the corals amidst the waves and it’s so much thrilling. This is one of the most wonderful cruise holidays that one can experience in the Andaman Islands in India.
  2. The Chilka Lake Cruise: This is a soothing holiday amidst the silence of nature with the sounds of The Bay of Bengal interrupting. The Beaches it comes across spots dolphins and various other beautiful birds and fishes.
  3. The Golden Triangle Cruise: This is the most luxurious and enthralling journey one can have on the way to Kolkata from New Delhi. The trip goes along various sacred heritage sites and the nights on the Ganges are worth experiencing. The accommodation consisting of rooms, dining, foods and hospitality is served by the Oberoi Hotels.
  4. Brahmaputra River Cruise: India is all about the sacred atmosphere. It stiches the soul to the bliss of nature. A journey on this Almighty river is one of the incredible journeys a traveller can have. The views are much more luxurious to the eyes. The countryside, the rural hubs followed by the inhabitants of the water body makes this trip a memorable one.

Some of the world’s best cruise holidays are:

 

  • Classic Nile: The Classic Nile is cruising in the Middle East. These are a highly luxurious range of ships. However, it is sad that the economy of the company is under pressure due to lack of visitors.
  • Adventures in Antarctica: This idea is exciting in itself. Sailing across the chilly ice zones and meeting some new species is adventurous; more so, because we are getting closer to the polar region.
