Unforgettable memories and experiences !!!!!

I have a little different travel experience. I was lucky enough that I got admission in National Institute of fashion Technology, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh and as we all know Devbhoomi itself is a great destination for travel lovers. And I myself am a big travel lover.                                                                                                                                 In first year we don’t have much work to do, so maximum of times we spent our time in exploring new places near Kangra.

You see every time GPS and maps can’t find new places to visit, real adventure is experienced when we ourselves explore by taking unknown roads and communicating with local people and asking them about new places. Sometimes it’s good to go on with an unplanned visit. It gives you an unexpected experience and unforgettable memories.

I would like to share my personal experience.

In mid of my semester I came to know that my friend has got transfer, so we decided to explore and travel together as much as we can before he leaves. And that’s where we started and we were unstoppable, we visited almost every new destination and explored.                                                                                                                                      

We started with Dharamshala and then Mcleodganj, Dharamcot, Palampur, Birbilling and much more. All these places are beautiful beyond imagination and worth visiting.


  •  KANGRA,(where I study) gives a very beautiful view of Dhauladhar ranges, covered with snow and in winters the view is to die for.
  •  In DHARAMSHALA, you can visit Kangra Art Museum and Indrunaag Point for paragliding.
  •  In MCLEODGANJ, Tibetan Monastery and Bhagsunaag Waterfalls are main attractions.                                                                                                                
  • Also, near Mcleodganj, there is a village Naddi where you can enjoy beautiful sunset at Sunset Point Cafe.
  •  DHARAMCOT (hub of cafeterias), which is also few kilometres away from Mcleodganj, is a great place to visit.
  •  PALAMPUR, which is famous for its tea gardens is a beautiful destination and you can also visit Saurabh Van Vihar which is a nature park located about 4 km away from Palampur. Apart from nature walks, boating, bird watching & bouldering can be enjoyed here.
  • BIR BILLING is a popular site for paraglide pilots, both Indians and visitors from all over the world. The paragliding launch site, at an elevation of 2400 metres, gives the most beautiful view and thrilling experience.                                                                                                                                                                      
  • Apart from these places we visited many other places like Kangra Fort, Masroor Rock Cut Temple, Khaniyara Village,Pragpur (Heritage Village of India), Chamunda Devi Temple, and we also went on one day trek of about 20 kms from Dharamcot to Gallu Temple which is near highest point of Dhauladhar Ranges.

I enjoyed a lot travelling these places with my friends and had many unforgettable memories and funny incidents. Like my friends gave me dare to dance on top of hill when we visited Bir Billing and every time we poured whole water bottle on our friend and after that searching for water. Best Experience was, when we visited Bhasunaag Waterfalls, the water was as cold as ice and we were literally shivering and even after that we enjoyed a lot.                                                                    

Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.                                                                                                                                        

Travelling every time gives a new and beautiful experience, one should travel with friends and family. Don’t hesitate to spend on travelling, we ourselves spent on travelling more than food and drinks. As, “INVESTMENT IN TRAVEL IS INVESTMENT IN YOURSELF”. So,Travel as much as you can.

Here are some memories I'd like to share with you guys....
