the ‘Grand’ Teton National Park!

the ‘Grand’ Teton National Park!

This trip to Grand Teton National Park & Yellowstone was definitely not on cards for this year although it happened, thanks for unavailability of desired accommodation at Yosemite! We couldn’t be more glad, as everything was just perfect… the beautiful sunrises & sunsets, the mesmerising fall colours & landscape views, crazy snowfall & lovely flurries and last but not the least – Wildlife at its best! From bugling Elks to a mighty Grizzly Bear with cubs, we couldn’t have asked for more…

The Flowersome Kaas Plateau

The Flowersome Kaas Plateau

We missed visiting Kaas last year, hence we were almost certain visiting it this year. We could not join the Wild India Eco Tours trip due to Ganesh Chaturthi but finally managed to visit Kaas on friday, 25th Sep 2015. We (Me, Sandip, Shraddha & Remya) had planned to start by 5 AM but a flat tyre right at start ensured we dirtied our hands right in the beginning of the trip and finally the journey began at 5:45 AM.

Dapoli – Yet another jewel in Konkan…

With rainy season couple of months away and summer at its peak, we decided to explore yet another place in Konkan region – Dapoli.  One reason to select Dapoli was that it is at an altitude of 800 ft and also known as “Mini Mahableshwar”. We had booked a room at Serene Ravine Homestay in Kolbandre village; which was around 8 KMs away from the Dapoli town nestled in the dense jungle.. and it was indeed a lovely stay there. As always we started at around 6 AM and drove through the Tamhini ghats. Read more

Bird-watching at Akshi & a visit to Korlai Fort

After fantastic trips to Ratnagiri and Chiplun, we zeroed on visiting Akshi in Konkan; a place around 5 KMs from Alibaug. Akshi beach has the same coastline that extends from Alibaug; however is relatively less crowded and not as famous as Alibaug beach or Kashid beach. Another key aspect we considered to visit Akshi beach was for bird-watching. Akshi beach is pretty familiar name among bird watchers; primarily for the variety and huge number of water birds seen on the beach. Read more
