One of the popular temples in Bali, Uluwatu Temple is established in one of the most spectacular locations in Bali. Perched at the peak of a cliff, Uluwatu temple also displayed a magnificent view of the surreal sunset. The calm waves, lush greenery, mighty cliff, and the sun setting far away in the ocean made us feel extremely grateful for the wonders of mother nature.

These Bali travel tips will ensure one is all set and well-prepared for their escapade to the stunning island nation.

  • It is better to get the currency exchange from India itself. The rates in Bali can be a little more and one won’t get worth their money.
  • Make your arrangements for a private cab beforehand. Hiring a cab when in Bali can turn out to be an expensive affair.
  • Research well about the Indian restaurants in Bali before leaving for the destination and jot down the names with addresses for your reference.
  • If one hires a self-drive car in Bali, always drive on the left.
  • Avoid drinking tap water. It is advised to buy a bottle of water.
  • Do not forget to indulge in the local Balinese cuisine.

10 Scariest Roads In India That Are A Driver’s Nightmare

Roads and highways to get INR 97,000 crore boost, announced honorable Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as he presented the Budget 2016. With current roads in dilapidated state and numerous cases of death tolls on narrow roads with hairpin curves, we sure need better roads and highways.

Talking of the scariest roads in India, some routes are so bad that they can give chills to even the most seasoned drivers. The narrow roads, sharp turns, low hanging cliffs, and harsh climatic conditions can lead them to death bed, instead of the planned destination.

Besides bad maintenance, sometimes the very location of a road makes it a scary drive. Out of the many, we bring you a handpicked list of the scariest roads in India that have claimed many lives in the past. But still, some daring men might see an element of thrill in such drives. Have a look and decide which side are you on!

The narrow road amidst the snowclad mountains near Khardungla Pass that is the highest motorable road in the world

Where: Ladakh, on the Caravan Route that was once the Silk Route between India & China
What makes it scary: The road is scary for the sheer invincible height of 5,602 m above the sea level. Additionally, the road is not paved and is slippery due to the frozen ice & dirt mix. And then there are the hairpin turns that are nightmares of even the most experienced drivers of the region.

The narrow Kishtwar Kailash Highway with low overhanging cliff and no guardrails that make it one of the scariest roads in India

Where: Eastern extremity of the Kishtwar district of Jammu
What makes it scary: The road is windy, narrow, and without guard rail for about 150 m. The overhanging cliff is so low that a Tata Sumo or similar car would barely fit. The sharp turns with cliff obstruct the view, making it all the more difficult to make those turns. One mistake and the drop is of about 600 m.

The narrow road with low overhanging cliff and no guardrails on the Killar - Kishtwar route

Where: Pangi Valley, Himachal Pradesh
What makes it scary: Much like its twin road – the Kishtwar Kailash Highway – the road runs without guard rails, has overhanging hills & sharp turns, and is narrow. The road is not an easy drive even in broad daylight, let alone at night.

The multilevel zig-zag road near Zoji La Pass that is narrow and has many sharp curves

Where: 9 km from Sonamarg, between Ladakh and Kashmir
What makes it scary: The road, at an altitude of 3,538 m above sea level, is frightfully narrow and extremely slippery due to the year-round snow and dirt mix. It gets muddy during the rains and gets blocked during the storms. Besides, frequent landslides have made it one of the scariest roads in India.

The slippery road amidst the snowclad mountains near Chang La Pass

Where: Between Pangong lake and Leh in Ladakh region
What makes it scary: At a whooping elevation of 5,360 m above sea level, the road remains snow-covered throughout the year. This makes the road slippery. Also, one can feel the scarcity of oxygen while on this road. The low temperatures in this region add to the travel woes of those commuting through this third highest motorable road in the world.

Planning your holiday but confused about where to go? These travel stories help you find your best trip ever!

Real travel stories. Real stays. Handy tips to help you make the right choice.

One of the many narrow dark holes and blind turns on the Kinnaur Road

Where: NH 22, at the start of Kinnaur region
What makes it scary: Taranda Dhank is infamous for claiming several lives. The low overhanging rocks, narrow dark holes, and blind turns make this road highly deadly. One mistake, and the vehicle will fall down into the Baspa River. If not the fall, the collision of vehicles around the blind turns are truly fatal.

One of the narrow stretches with hairpin curves near Rohtang Pass on the Leh-Manali Road

Where: Leh – Manali Road, 53 km from Manali
What makes it scary: At an elevation of 3,979 m above sea level, Rohtang Pass is the gateway connecting Manali to Leh and Lahaul – Spiti. However, it is the entire route of 479 km that is dangerous. The snow covered roads are prone to landslides, especially in regions that are enclosed with mountains on both sides.

An aerial view of the rock-cut narrow stretches of road near Nathula Pass

Where: Indo-Chinese border, 54 km east of Gangtok, near Tsomgo Lake, Sikkim
What makes it scary: The route is prone to landslides during monsoons and snow sludge in winters. Besides, the curved roads are slippery.

The multilevel zig-zag stretches of road near Nathula Pass connecting Zuluk to Thambi View

The final stretch of road to Matheran that allows automobiles

Where: Raigad District, Maharashtra – The road begins at Neral at an elevation of 40 m above sea level. The 8.9 km road takes you to Matheran, located at an elevation of 800 m above sea level.
What makes it scary: The average elevation gain is 8.5% per stretch, with a total gain of 760 m. The steep and narrow sections are followed by hairpin turns. Some of these sections are even without guard rails. To add to the woes of the drivers, rains make the roads slippery and may even cause landslides. However, the occurrence of landslides is very rare.

A snap of the dangerous Se La Pass in the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh

Where: Tawang District, Arunachal Pradesh – The road connects the Buddhist city of Tawang Town to Tezpur and Guwahati.
What makes it scary: The high mountain pass is located at an elevation of 4,170 m above the sea level. But its winding design, sharp turns, and slippery curves can be fatal. Moreover, the road is covered in snow for most of the year. This adds to the driving difficulty of the travelers. So it is suggested to drive really slow and not get lost in the panoramic views.

So which of these roads and highways to hell really scare you? Share with us your experiences on these most dangerous roads in India.

Our Family Trip To Andaman Turned Into A Sweet Affair With Nature & An Epic Vacay!

My family and I love beaches and places like Andaman that are adorned with gorgeous white sand and tranquil blue water. This trip wasn’t any sudden decision, rather we had been planning to go someplace like this for a year. Last year when we took a trip to Goa, we realized that actually, Andaman is the best beach location around India since it is more peaceful and perfect for a holiday with family than any other place. Our family trip to Andaman was everything and actually more than what we expected it to be. The people there were very nice and friendly, especially in Port Blair. Even all the places to stay were amazing too! Thanks to TravelTriangle and the effortful planning by them and our agent that we were finally able to take this trip!

Our family trip to Andaman kick-started when we landed at Port Blair and were picked up by the driver to escort us till our hotel. After completing the check-in process and freshening up, we headed out for a little tour of Port Blair. Our first pit stop was the famous Cellular Jail where we enjoyed the light & music show. It was phenomenal and we definitely would have regretted if we had missed it. Later, we went to the Corbyn’s Cove, which is a beautiful coconut-palm fringed beach. It was nothing less than a serene haven where people were indulging in various water sports activities and some were just chilling at the nearby restaurants. It made us feel at peace and fueled our wanderlust at the same time.

Day 2: Island hopping

We started the second day of our Andaman trip with a hearty breakfast after which we headed out for our ride to the North Bay Island and Ross Island. Both of the islands are famous for water sports but we couldn’t do many activities since we were short of time. Visiting there helped us learn that Ross Island is famous for Japanese bunkers and wildlife, and is definitely more beautiful. However, it was the journey from one island to another in the ferry that was the highlight of our day. It was simply breathtaking and we couldn’t take our eyes off the sea.

Day 3: Getting around Havelock

the luxury cruise Makruzz awaited us

The third day of our trip started quite early since the luxury cruise Makruzz awaited us. As excited as we were to explore the Havelock Island, we were for sailing in this ultra luxurious cruise. It was a two hour journey and needless to say that we enjoyed it completely. We visited the Kalapathar Beach and the Radhanagar Beach which were beautiful. Of the two, the Kalapathar Beach was definitely the most beautiful, peaceful, and picturesque, and we were awestruck. It was a leisure day for us so we spent our time relaxing and chilling on the beaches.

Day 4: Cruise ride to Neil Island

took some selfie

Sailing in a cruise is definitely one of the best things to do in Andaman. From Havelock Island, we went to Neil Island the next day in a luxury cruise. Our hotel there was beautiful and quite peaceful. The island is adorned with lush green forests and white sandy beaches which were nothing less than a treat to our eyes. While we were relaxing on the beaches, it felt like the time had come to a halt.

Day 5 & 6: Witnessing the wildlife up close and personal

took some beautiful shots

witnessing the great time

on the beach

had a perfect vacation

enjoying on the beach at night

at port blair

On the second last day of our Andaman trip, we got up early and checked out of the hotel to head back to Port Blair. After a scenic ride, we stopped by to visit the famous zoological park known as Chidiya Tapu. The park is a perfect place for bird watchers and of course nature lovers. Also, it is a great place for capturing some beautiful pictures. It’s not doubt that visiting this place put a perfect sweet end to our holiday in Andaman. Since we were quite exhausted because of the traveling, we headed back to the hotel and relaxed nicely. Our sweet adieu to Andaman was when we boarded our flight on the sixth day. And while none of us wanted it to end, we left happily to someday come back again.

  • While shopping, make sure to pick the items made of pearls or seashells as they are the most famous in Andaman. Believe me, you won’t find them anywhere else.
  • If you are a non-vegetarian, then Andaman is a paradise for you. If you are a vegan, try and carry some ready-to-cook snacks.
  • Do ensure that you have Aircel or BSNL network because the majority of the other networks don’t work in Andaman.
  • If you are planning to visit different islands and indulge in different experiences, ask a holiday planner to plan your trip because booking everything on your own can be a really big hassle.
  • Set a budget well in advance and make sure to carry enough cash as you might not come across too many functioning ATMs.

Our overall experience with TravelTriangle was pretty good. The payment process was very smooth and easy. Even our agent White Shell Travel was very helpful and always available. After we reached Andaman, we were asked to connect to a local agent who was at our disposal 24X7. Our hotels were really good and up to the expectations. It didn’t feel that we have spent since our package was appropriate as per our budget. Kudos to the entire team for making our dream trip to Andaman come true!

Andaman is a paradise for adventurers, nature lovers, history buffs, and explorers. There is literally so much to do and see around that you would be left boggled. But more than that, in awe! So, think no more, just pick your dates, and plan your family trip to Andaman with TravelTriangle for an impeccable affair with nature.

Reverse Waterfall: All You Need To Know About The Serene Maharashtrian Gem

Out of all the fascinating wonders of nature that humans have been able to discover throughout, a reverse waterfall in Naneghat is surely one thing that has left us all in great awe! Well, if you didn’t know it before, may be this will be your next weekend getaway near Mumbai.

The serene mountain pass in Maharashtra makes for a stunning view and what’s more is that you can enjoy a day trip here with your folks.

For those of you who are still wondering how this cascading beauty defies gravity, well, it does not.

1. Marine Activities

went on to try the water activities

captured some funny moments

Bali is famous for water activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, and parasailing at several beaches. So, we ensured to include these activities on our honeymoon trip to Bali. As the skies were clear, we opted for parasailing and caught a bird’s eye view. Besides this, we also got a chance to do jet skiing and took a banana boat ride. It was a relief to do water activities on a sunny day. Later that day, we enjoyed our time on the dinner cruise and swayed on music. As there were other Indian couples on the beach, we were lucky to make some new friends.

2. A Day-Tour In Ubud

3. Tegenungan Waterfall

pool decorated with flowers

Tegenungan Waterfall

captured the beauty of this place

On the last day of our honeymoon, we stayed in the city of Ubud and got a chance to explore the street markets in Bali. But the main highlight of the day was the visit to the Tegenungan Waterfall. Hidden in Ubud, this waterfall is a magical place that is encapsulated amidst lush greenery. Near this waterfall, there are a couple of normal springs that can be reached by going down some steps. The beauty of this place will be etched in our hearts forever.

We stayed at two hotels in Bali – one at Kuta and other at Ubud. We could not have asked for better properties as they provided every facility we required.

1. Swiss-Belhotel Tuba

After arrival at the airport, we were transported to Swiss-Belhotel Tuba which is located in Kuta. We were provided a Deluxe room in the hotel which was well-maintained. The property was luxurious and the strategic location of the hotel made it easy to visit the tourist places. They provided an elaborate breakfast arrangement with excellent service, helping staff members, and delicious food. Our overall stay in this hotel relaxing and amazing.

Location: Jl. Kubu Anyar No.31, Tuban, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361, Indonesia

2. Vrindavan Ubud Villa

We were excited about our stay in this property as we had read about this 4-star villa. Situated in a quaint place far from the city, the villa is spacious and very romantic. As we booked a honeymoon trip to Bali, our room was equipped with a private pool and was decked with flowers. We savored some amazing food there and were impressed by the hospitality, services, and facilities.

Location: Desa Kenderan Tegallalang, Kenderan, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80561, Indonesia

amazing place to spend time with partner

Since we were staying in Kuta and Ubud, we got a chance to do a lot of shopping. The art market in Ubud is full of handmade items like wood-carved showpieces and is one of the best things to buy from Bali. One can’t resist the colorful shopping lanes in Ubud and we couldn’t too. So, we reserved some time from the last day and went out for shopping. From a range of clothes, handicrafts, and souvenirs, it was difficult to choose what to buy. But before going, learn some bargaining skills as it will help you get things at cheap rates.

We visited many restaurants including the ones in our hotel. We wanted to savor the local food in Bali and interesting dishes too. One can try nasi goreng, sate, Bebek betutu, and nasi campur as these are the top Balinese dishes. Besides this, we found several Indian restaurants in Bali where we retired to fill our stomachs with Indian food. These restaurants served a variety of dishes and at reasonable rates.

There are some tips that one can keep in mind while planning a trip to Bali. Some of them are mentioned below:

  • In the month of February, one can expect a bit of drizzling in Bali. So, carry an umbrella or raincoat no matter what.
  • If you are traveling to Bali then you must opt for the famous water and fun activities like banana ride, scuba diving, paragliding, and underwater walk.
  • Pack shorts, summer dresses, and beach clothes as the weather in February is warm and humid.
  • Always carry cash with you because not all places accept cards. So, keep some cash handy.

we visited romantic places to spend some time

Our experience with TravelTriangle cannot be conveyed in words. From choosing the right destination to the feedback, we enjoyed each and every moment of our trip.

5 Days In Mauritius Are All You Need For A Fabulous Honeymoon

They say marriages are made in heaven. So, our honeymoon should feel like one too. This is why we chose to travel to Mauritius for our romantic escapade. It is beautiful, it has picturesque islands and waterfalls, and it is abundant with flora and fauna; all the heavenly settings you would want from a honeymoon destination. Once we had zeroed in on our honeymoon place, we booked our trip from TravelTriangle. Those 5 days in Mauritius on our honeymoon were blissful and exciting. We had the best time on the island and covered almost everything this island is famous for.

Trip Type: Honeymoon
Trip Duration: 5N/6D
Trip Cost: INR 180,000
Inclusions: Airfare, Transfers, Meals except for lunch, visa, shared cab, sightseeing
Exclusions: Travel Insurance, Lunch

Here is how we spent 5 days in Mauritius. Each day was truly splendid and we got enough time to cover major attractions and also have ample time to ourselves.

Day 1: Hello, Mauritius!

enjoy with wife

selfi with my love

We arrived in Mauritius and were picked by our representative at the airport. We checked in our hotel. We spent the rest of the day settling in and wandering around.

Day 2: Ile aux Cerfs

enjoy with wife

enjoyed a full-day

We enjoyed a full-day excursion to Ile Aux Cerfs, an emerald lagoon on the east coast. We were stumped by the beauty of its sandy beaches and beautiful lagoon. There was a wide range of facilities and activities. It was one of the best highlights of our 5 days in Mauritius. We even enjoyed water sports activities on our island tour.

Day 3: Port Louis

Port Louis for sightseeing

fine-dining experience

We drove to Port Louis for sightseeing. Our first stop was the Citadel & its surrounding area. Then we visited the Champ de Mars racecourse. It was inaugurated in 1812 making it the oldest horse-racing club in the Southern Hemisphere, and one of the oldest in the world too. Afterward, we drove to Le Caudan, the beautiful Waterfront where there were some 170 shops and restaurants. It is a must-visit if you like shopping and fine-dining experience.

Day 4: Chameral Village & Trous aux Cerfs

 views of the Chamarel waterfalls

 best time

alot of fun

On this day of our 5 days in Mauritius, we visited the ship-making factory in Curepipe and enjoyed shopping at the duty-free shops in Floreal. The views of the scenic town of Curepipe & its surroundings from the extinct crater of Trou aux Cerfs were astounding. In the afternoon, we drove through the nature park of Black River & Plaine Champagne to Chamarel village. We also made a stop at Grand Bassin Sacred Lake and laid our eyes on the stunning 108 feet statue of “Mangal Mahadev”. The next stop was Chamarel, the unusual 7 colored earth created by volcanic rocks. The views of the Chamarel waterfalls were startling.

Day 5: Casela Bird Park

safari quad biking in the park

honeymoon should feel like one too

We went to Casela Bird park since we had the whole day to ourselves. We watched so many birds in this park and even saw a huge turtle. Walking with the lions was also an enthralling experience. The best experience, however, was safari quad biking in the park.

Day 6: Hasta la Vista, Mauritius

left for the airport

 left for the airport

After breakfast, we checked out of our hotel and left for the airport to catch our flight back to Chennai.

During the entire course of our trip, we stayed at Long Beach Golf Resort & Spa. it was one of the top properties in Belle Mare that came with 3 plunge outdoor pools and a luxury spa facility. The resort even had a 5-star restaurant where we dined for all nights in Mauritius. The rooms were lavish and had all kinds of facilities to make our stay comfortable.

Here are a few do’s and don’ts that we gathered from our experience. We hope it will help you to make your vacation hassle-free.

Do’s

  • Use public transportation wherever you can
  • Carry a first aid kit with medicine to keep seasickness at bay if you are not used to traveling by sea.
  • Choose your stay on the basis of good reviews to enjoy a comfortable stay.

Don’ts

  • Don’t spend the entire time on the beach.
  • Don’t go out after dark.
  • Don’t consume non-vegetarian food near religious places.

Apart from the 5-star restaurant at the resort where we were staying, we visited many roadside restaurants in Mauritius. The food was cheap but it was not liking to the taste of us Tamilians.

Were you satisfied with the budget for your holiday?

Yes, I was very much satisfied with my budget. We did not feel like we missed out on anything. We covered all the bases in 5 days in Mauritius.

How was your overall experience with TravelTriangle and its agent?

It was an awesome experience. Everything for our honeymoon was planned very well and the execution was seamless. We could not have asked for better.

Just like Ranjith, you could too spend fabulous 5 days in Mauritius with your loving partner and forget about all the worries in the world. All you need to do is plan your trip to Mauritius and have a relaxing time on the island. Mauritius may seem expensive but if you plan it well, you could do it on a budget too.
