Dodital, the lake with a lot of mythological history is a very happening trekking destination at the present age. Dodital is the birth place of Lord Ganesha and is said to have witnessed the beheading of the deity by Lord Shiva. A trek with a perfect blend of rapidly changing landscape among any Himalayan trek. Dodital Trek starts with rural villages bustling with activities, it then goes onto a river side camp, very thick alpine woods, a mythical lake in the middle of it and finally a camp at 13,000 ft. on green grass lands atop a meadow looking 20,000 ft. snow mountains straight in the eye. The trek is of moderate difficulty. You are looking at trekking times of 4-5 hours a day on an average. The route is well marked all along and there is no major tricky terrain.Read More »
Bhutan has been much in news. It is not because of its effort to measure its performance in terms of Gross National Happiness rather than GNP. It is also not because of the natural beauty of the place – the monasteries, fortresses (dzongs) and the amazing topography ranging from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. The big news is that Bhutan has become carbon negative. Yes, exactly that. Led by the dynamic Prime Minister Tshering Togbay, Bhutan has been working hard to protect the environment and reduce pollution and the results are showing.
But this is not the only reason to visit the land of Thunder Dragon. The Himalayan kingdom offers a plethora of experiences ranging from adventure, trekking, climbing to culture and heritage, from nature and wildlife to calm and peaceful environs of a Buddhist monastery.
In line with our philosophy, Rustik Travel has curated a range of travel experiences that are rustic, offbeat and sustainable. Here goes.
Ladakh is the land of high passes blessed with natural beauty any other place in the world would envy. In ancient times it was an important outpost in the important silk route trade. Much of that richness esp. in culture and heritage is still very much reflective in the present day Ladakh.
Not much else needs to be said about Ladakh. A landscape vastly different from anything imaginable. Though so much has been talked and written about it that most people have an idea of the place, yet nothing can prepare you for what to expect the moment the door of the aircraft opens and this land opens its arms to you.
Spiti means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India.
The Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley which is located high in the Himalaya Mountains in the north-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh in India.
Journey through Rajasthan, the Land of Princes, is steeped in legends and mystery of bygone heroes and timeless culture. Set amidst the Aravalli Hills, Rajasthan is enveloped by the natural wonders of the Thar Desert, and dotted with surreal lakes, majestic forts and palaces, multihued cities, pristine villages and wildlife.
Revel in vivid shades of Jodhpur’s blue-walled cityscape or take a holy dip at waterside ghats in Pushkar. Explore the bustling old markets in modern pink city of Jaipur or admire the illuminated palaces of Udaipur as the sun sets at the banks of Lake Pichola. Get inspired by the grandeur of the sand castle of Jaisalmer or sight a peacock dancing in Ranthambore National Park. Rajasthan almost overwhelms the senses with a truly incredible travel experience.
The Northern Lights in Iceland is a beautiful visual phenomenon of bright dancing lights in the sky. These are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. Variations in colour are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora australis’ in the south.Read More »
