India You Beauty

As some one rightly saidtravel is the only thing you buy that makes you rich!

A lot of us want to travel across the world to see places that have been promoted well thru the power of advertising! This is an attempt to explore places in India that are worth a visit. Places I have traveled to. Snippets of places rich in history, wildlife, natural beauty, architectural marvels, adventure activities, beautiful beaches etc..

Lets start with my favourite,
 Wildlife-
Gir National Park, Sasan, Gujarat.
Unconditional Love 
Lion territory, home for the endangered Asiatic Lions. These majestic creatures once had their territory spread from Persia to whole of Asia. Credit to human intervention and rampant poaching there are only 411 odd lions left today and are found only in Gir.


Lion King!
Located in the tribal village of Sasan, Gir is 350 kms away from Ahmedabad.

Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan.
Royal Bengal Tiger
Ranthambore national park is one of the largest NP's in Northern India. One of the best tiger reserves in India. It is famous for keeping wildlife enthusiasts engaged and happy. Go on a couple of safaris and it is guaranteed you would spot the majestic Bengal Tiger in the wild.
