I thought it important to highlight the stunningly beautiful regions of Ladakh and the North-East, so here‚Äôs a separate section for itūüôā

Ladakh & North-East India

Heaven on Earth – Ladakh

Snow-capped peaks, clear blue skies, barren mountains, blue meandering rivers, lunar landscapes…the list goes on and words fail to describe the sheer beauty of Ladakh.

Ladakh, the ‚ÄėLand of High Passes‚Äô is a barren yet beautiful region located in the northernmost and strategically important Indian state of¬†Jammu & Kashmir, where a hostile Pakistan has continued to encourage and indulge in cross-border terrorism since its separation from India in 1947. Hence the¬†Indian military¬†maintains a strong presence in the region. The disputed regions shown in the map are occupied by Pakistan (to the northwest) and China (to the northeast) although these originally belonged to India. Wars were fought with both countries over the disputed regions. Hence the Indian military¬†keeps a strict vigil around the border region.

The region borders the Kashmir Valley and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to the west, Lahaul and Spiti regions of the alpine state of Himachal Pradesh to the south, Tibet to the east and the southwest corner of Sinkiang (or Xinjiang) across the Karakoram Pass in the far north. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu & Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet.

Leh is the district headquarters, 434 Kms from Srinagar, the State’s summer capital and 474 Kms from Manali in Himachal Pradesh.

Intrepid travellers are attracted to its scenic beauty, rugged terrain, majestic mountains and the challenge of roughing it out. This is why Ladakh is a favourite with mountaineering enthusiasts. Due to its remote location and high altitude, it’s not suited for a quick holiday. Leh is situated at a height of 11,300 feet and it is crucial to get acclimatised to the thin air for at least a day or two before wandering around.

I visited this amazing region in 2010. During my trip, I also got the dreamy opportunity of visiting the Siachen Base Camp of Indian Army situated at the snout of the Siachen Glacier at a height of 12,000 feet above sea level. Civilians are usually not allowed to go beyond Panamik, a small village in the Nubra Valley famous for its hot sulphur springs. The strategically important Siachen Glacier is the highest and coldest battlefield in the world at an average altitude of 20,000 feet. In winter, the temperature dips to minus 60 degrees. The Base Camp also houses the Siachen Battle School, the world’s highest elevation military training academy, which trains soldiers in ice craft and other survival techniques before they start for their posts on the glacier. It was awesomeūüôā

So, read my travel stories in this magical land ‚ÄúHeaven on Earth – Ladakh‚ÄĚ to know a bit more about itūüôā

Amazing North-East India

North-East India map

Virgin, wild and untouched by modernizations… the least explored, most mysterious and one of the most beautiful regions of India…that’s the Northeast.

This amazing region of India comprises of eight contiguous states ‚Äď Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura ‚Äď each having its own culture and tradition. It is home for more than 166 separate tribes, some of them having migrated over the centuries from places as far as South-East Asia.

The region borders Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Tibet, China and Myanmar. Until a few years ago, this region was totally isolated from the rest of the country. The only route for any overland travel (roadways or railways) between this region and the rest of the country is through the Siliguri Corridor, a 20-km wide corridor of Indian territory between Nepal and Bangladesh. This corridor is the lifeline of the entire North-East.

I first visited this region in 2010, travelling with the Indian Army through Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur and Nagaland. In 2014, I travelled to Sikkim. And a few months ago, in 2015, I was in Tripura and Mizoram. I have posted my travel stories in each state and you can read them in the below links‚Ķ enjoyūüôā

After discovering Incredible India, it‚Äôs time to discover another beautiful land, Mexicoūüôā Both countries share numerous similarities, most of which have been written about in my blogposts. So now, let me introduce you to M√©xico Lindo y Querido (Beautiful and Beloved Mexico)ūüôā

Discover Mexico

Mexico states map

Image courtesy: http://www.ontheworldmap.com

Mexico (M√©xico ‚Äėmeh-hee-koh‚Äô in Spanish) or the ‚ÄėUnited Mexican States‚Äô (its official name), is the most populous Spanish-speaking country and the second-largest Roman Catholic nation in the world. It enjoys a unique cultural blend of different indigenous cultures with colonial Spanish traditions and modern industrialization. The country is part of the North American continent and is located directly south of the United States. To the south-east, it is bordered by Guatemala and Belize. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea lie on the east coast, and the Pacific Ocean on the west and south. The¬† country extends all along the 3,100 km-long southern border of the United States, most of which is formed by the R√≠o Bravo, a major river known as Rio Grande in the neighbouring country. For more on Mexico, open this link

Mexico has 31 states and a Federal District (Distrito Federal), where the capital, Mexico City, commonly called ‚ÄėDF‚Äô (deh-efe) or ‚ÄúCDMX‚ÄĚ (Ciudad de M√©xico, syoo-dahd deh meh-hee-koh) is located. Broadly, the country is divided into seven regions: North, North Pacific, Central Pacific, Central Highlands, Gulf Coast, Yucat√°n Peninsula, and the South.

And you know what?:-) I have visited 16 of the 31 states of México Lindo y Querido (Beautiful and Beloved Mexico). Open the below links to read my stories in each state. No link implies that I have yet to write about or visit that state. It will happen in the near future, so stay with me:-)

North: Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes

North Pacific: Baja (ba-ha) California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Sonora

Central Pacific: Colima, Nayarit, Jalisco (ha-lees-koh), Michoac√°n (mee-cho-ah-kahn)

Central Highlands: Guanajuato (gwah-nah-hwa-toh), Hidalgo (eeh-dahl-goh), Estado de México, Puebla, Queretaro, Tlaxcala, Morelos, and the federal district of Mexico City

Gulf Coast: Tabasco, Tamaulipas, Veracruz

Yucat√°n Peninsula: Campeche (cam-peh-cheh), Quintana Roo (keen-tah-nah Roh), Yucat√°n

South: Chiapas (chyah-pahs), Oaxaca (wah-ha-cah), Guerrero
