    • Rishikesh in August

      India 2 hours ago

      Hello, I will be travelling in India for 2 weeks starting July 28th. I am planning to travel to Rishikesh for 2-3 days to practice/study yoga. First, I know it is monsoon - is it still worth going? Second, if so, is there an ashram you recommend that I can stay at for only a couple of days? Thank you!

    • Varkala and rain in October. Or should I choose somewhere else??????

      India Jul 1, 2015 at 12:07 PM

      I am going on a business trip to Bangalore October 10th till October 15th. My plan is to top the trip with four days on the beach. I was in Varkala 12 years ago and would like to go back there, but I notice the monsoon season is still going on in October and it usually rains 17 days during the month. Of course I do not want to experience bad weather during my four days.

      Shall I dare to book Varkala, or should I opt for somewhere else? Northern Kerala or southern Goa?

      The flight from Bangalore should not be more than an hour, and the beach should not be more than one hour’s drive from the airport. After last year’s trip to Bangalore I went to Goa but this year I would like to try a different part of the country. In Goa I stayed in Calangute, which I found a bit crowded for my taste, but I really enjoyed the beaches of Sinquerim and Aswem nearby. The place I stay in should not be totally isolated as I travel alone, a couple of restaurants and bars to choose from is a must. I am also more into white sand than golden sand.

      Or should I consider the Lakadives???? It looks beautiful there and I loved being in the Seychelles a coulpe of years ago!

      Chincholi forest and Chandrampalli Dam

      by globet Online Now Jan 12, 2015 at 4:59 AM

      Hello Everyone. I have just joined the site and excited to be here. I stay in Hyderabad and planing to visit a forest called Chincholi and a Dam called Chandrampalli which are very near to Hyderabad. There are many people who have visited the place for trekking and I have not been able to get any more information about the place apart from the trekking point of view.

      My questions to the people who have visited the place are -

      1. Is there an accommodation available at that place. I don't want to stay in lodges in Gulbarga, the biggest town nearby.
      2. If yes, then is it good enough for a family and kids?

      Thanks in advance for your answer.

I guess what I am looking to know, is that should I feel alarmed at all about exploring the city after work?
