Tal Chappar Wildlife Sanctuary by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   17 July 2020  

Morning at Khimsar was superb (please check previous BLOG / VIDEO), and with the fresh mood, we started our journey for Tal Chappar. It took us roughly 3 hours to reach here even though we oped a longer route so we can see some interiors of Rajasthan and we enjoyed those empty roads with desert on both sides. The sight of chinkaras also kept us busy.

We had booked Raptors Inn for stay at Tal chappar. Its a guest house with all facilities. A homely environment with fresh and delicious food. After having lunch, we straight away went to the gates of Tal chappar. Mr. Atul, the owner of Raptors Inn has a gypsy which, we hired along with the driver who was also our guide for this place.

 
There is an entrance fee here at the gates and for three of us Rs. 165/- and for our gypsy car 220/- was charged.
 
ABOUT TAL CHAPPAR
 
Now let me tell you about Tal chappar. Well, I feel birds lovers and wildlife photographers must know this place. However, if you never heard about it or yet not visited here so far, you will be my best audience.
 
Tal chappar sanctuary is at Churu district of Rajasthan, well known for its Blackbucks. I feel they are the most handsome antelopes and were classified in "near threatened" species and hence protected under wildlife protection.
Along with, there are chinkaras, desert fox, wild boar, blue bull aka Neal Gaye, and this place is now getting famous for serious bird lovers. 
 
We could not see much variety of them as we came here in March, which is a kind of season when most of the migratory birds fly away.
However, we still found some and clicked some shots of them.

The hidden Gem of Rajasthan - Khimsar Village Blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   10 July 2020  
After our hectic schedule of Jawai Bandh, where I broke a few of my bones while driving in that rocky jungle (kidding) (check - VIDEO), our next destination was kind of opposite to it.
 
We started from Jawai Bandh in the early morning after having our breakfast. Passing through those rocky hills, which I won't forget for a lifetime, we all enjoyed the road trip.
 
At last, we reached a small town called Khimsar.

 
About Khimsar
The main attraction is the Khimsar Fort which was built in 1523 AD by Rao Karamsji. Today some portion of the fort is converted into a luxurious hotel that provides royal Rajput hospitality.
 
But we were not interested in the fort. We were more interested in the resort known as Khimsar village.

Jawai Bandh leopard conservation reserve blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   04 July 2020  
At least once a year, go to the Jungle. Notice the existence in its Raw format. See how the trees, plants, insects, birds, animals, all intermingle with each other.
 
Learn this and apply it in your life. Accept everybody. We may look from far as to separate islands, but deep down, we all are ONE.
 
And to experience this, I make such programs regularly so I can understand where I am standing. And this time with the Adventure team of Agra, made a trip for Jawai bandh Leopard conservation reserve. 

 

ABOUT JAWAI BANDH
 
Bandh means Dam and this Dam construction completed in the year 1957 by Maharaj Umaid Singh of Jodhpur and is the biggest Dam in western Rajasthan. It is made across the Jawai river and is the tributary of the Luni river. The purpose of it is to supply water in Jodhpur and Pali districts and also some villages for irrigation. 
 
Today it became a habitat of leopards, birds, crocodiles, and other animals. Our purpose was to make photographs of leopards. But was it that easy? Let's check it out.

Golden temple of Amritsar blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   02 July 2020  
Let me start this blog with a message
 
After leaving Chamba, Gaurav and I planned to go to Parashar lake. However, on the way, we missed 2 turns and those 2 missing took us to the road which leads to Shri Harmandir Sahib Gurudwara in Amritsar (Popularly known as Golden temple)
 
The message is - all your plans, your desire means nothing. A blunder which we were thinking later I found was the blessing in disguise. It's just a very small incident but in Life sometimes we all experience how things go wrong (according to our definition). I would like to say, have patience, soon you going to realize, it is nothing but just a small Act of a vast theater which is going on. Right or Wrong, it's not going to matter at that time. We rise above it.
 
My experience at Shri Harmandir Sahib
 
January 17, 2020
 
Winters, I love them. Amritsar was almost empty and our car reached in a bazaar till the point where Golden temple was just 500 meters away. I came here after a long gap, roughly after 13 years and everything is changed here.
 
The used to be local market developed into Supermarket now and from no angle, it felt like I was in India.
 
That's the funny way how we describe our place sometime "lag hi nahi raha tha yaar ki main India mein hu" :D
 
It was already late evening when we reached here and hence we decided to go inside the temple in the morning.

Explore Khajjiar in Winters with A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   30 June 2020  

Khajjiar is just 22 km from Chamba and the best time to visit here is from April to June. But since I had already been here in April season in the year 2017, this time the plan was to see it in winters.

About Khajjiar
Khajjiar was bestowed with the title of mini Switzerland in 1992 by Mr. Willy T Blaze, Vice Counsellor and Head Chancery of Switzerland in India.  It means that it is one of the 160 places in the world which bear tropical resemblances to Switzerland.
 
If you still haven't heard of Khajjiar, then let me show you the map. Khajjiar is tucked away in one of  Himachal's  northernmost fringes of Dhauladhar circuit.
 
Many tourists are not aware of it and usually the crowd always heads towards the well-known Shimla Kullu Manali route.
 
But if you want something different, you can come here in the tourist season or if you are into some kind of adventure then visit in the winters. And the route which is sure shot open in winters is via Chamba. The Dalhousie-Khajjiar road is closed most of the time in winters because of excessive snowfall.

All about Chamba - A travel blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   27 June 2020  
CHAMBA was the princely state during Britishers time and a capital of a Kingdom which never had any successful invasion for around a millennium. Even Emperor Akbar and later Aurangzeb failed to acquire this territory.
 
The founder of this this lush green valley where river Ravi flows by was Raja Sahil Verman and it was built on the request of you her daughter Champavati. Chamba was named after her.
 
Yes this time let me take with you to this small yet happy town.
 
WHAT TO SEE HERE
1.) Chamunda Devi Temple
 
It was raining on our day 1 and we were wearing Ponchu while we walk in this town near Chaugan area and everybody was seeing us like some Alien visited on their land. I thought it would be better to slow down for this day but my big brother Dr. Amit Vakil (who live in Chamba) pushed us to at least cover one spot here and that too in rain. And so with him we went to see Chamunda Devi temple.
 
Chamba is very religious town and so mostly the main area of interest are just temples.
 
And this temple was built by Raja Umed singh in year 1762 and is entirely made of wood. Earlier it could only be reached through some 400 steps cut out from the stone pathway, but now it is easily accessible trough 3 km long road from Chamba which we of-course opted in this heavy rain.
 
The temple is dedicated to goddess Kali and we witnessed aarti here and I was also surprised to see few people who came to attend it even in this rain.
 
Navratri is the most busiest time of the year here when 1000s of pilgrims travel from India to pay their homage to Goddess.
 
I have been to many temples but the experience for this one in rain when the temperature was freezingly cold and covering it on camera was the life time experience.

Dev Deepawali in Varanasi blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   25 June 2020  
It is always fun when you travel with like minded people, and if such a travel was leading me to Varanasi, how could I step back. This time I went to cover Dev Diwali. I was with the Photographers Club of Agra.
 
DAY 1
 
On our Day 1 at evening we all set together for Varanasi. Our train reservation was from Tundla to Deen Dayal Upadhyay junction. Odd! but we found no direct train. Tundla is 25 km from Agra for which we took Bus and from Deen Dayal junction Varanasi is like 15 km for which we took taxi in morning.
 
DAY 2 (GHATS OF VARANASI)
 
By 12 PM we reached to our destination on our Day 2. We has already pre-booked our hotel which I will recommend as in the late hours it is difficult to find a hotel.
 
As planned in afternoon we were on the Ghats till late evening where we also saw Ganga aarti at Dashshwamedha ghat.
 
We found that people had already started making Rangoli. Some were preparing for theatre and some singing. Ghats were getting cleaned and all this was happening for Dev Diwali which was after two days.
 
And among all these activities two ghats were burning as usual. Typical Varanasi.
 
In the evening we had a wonderful dinner with my younger brother Shyam who lives here and also had Banarasi Paan :O. "Ab Banaras aaye aur paan nahi khaya to kya kiya"

Forgotten fort of Suaju Dev hans near Agra blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   23 June 2020  
Our desire to find out some off beats locations brought us to a place which is called Suaju Dev Hans Ka Kila/fort by the local villagers.
 
Nothing much is known about this place. We did few sittings with locals for it to know it and also how to go close to this fort.
 
Villagers were very kind to us and told everything about it and also showed us the way. So one fine morning we went close to this fort and enjoyed what we are best at. Found some dry wood and made coffee and tea for ourselves. It was so heavenly in this wilderness. The chirping of birds, the Sun rise, the fresh air... Where you get these things in cities?

Offbeat locations near Agra which you may not know

Posted Date :   19 June 2020  
We the adventure team of Agra love to travel on roads which are less traveled and in this blog I am going to take you to some more offbeat locations near Agra.
 
BANDH BARETHA
 
This time we went to see Bandh Baretha which was built in the year 1897 by Maharaja Ram Singh. It is basically a dam but a wonderful place to spend some quality. Away from the city hustle bustle, one can find peace here.
 
It is also a bird watchers' paradise and I guess many bird photographers must know about it.
 
VILLAGE KOT (Jharna Parua)
 
We spent some quality time here and then moved on to our next location which lies near Tantpur and called Village Kot.
 
Frankly not easy to reach here. One surely needs a 4x4 vehicle or atleast Royal enfield kind of bike.
 
The place we went is called Jharna Parua by the locals. What you find here is a Shiva Temple somewhere deep in Jungle. This temple is built for some cause, may be water was the problem for this village in past. We do know yet. But, from the hills which cover the area of temple, water constantly flow. Villagers who were with us, do not know the exact reason. But they confirmed that water comes to this place irrespective of the season, 365 days. Locals also take bath here and drink this water and they believe it to be mystical in many senses.
 
A small temple of some Sidh baba was also made nearby and history of him was also not fully known.
 
One this I must say here that, this is really a wonderful place, full of positivism. We sat here again for some time and I fell into deep meditation. It was refreshing.

We found mysterious caves in Village Patsal near Agra

Posted Date :   16 June 2020  

Being the part of Adventure team of Agra is really fun and enriching. Before I start let me tell you guys that here in Agra I am also the part of this group whose whole sole purpose is to find such locations which are long forgotten with dust of time and also to locate places which are less traveled.

So for days going here and there and with lot of research, we found a Village called PATSAL.
 
It is somewhat 45 km from Agra and just 5 km from well known monument Fatehpur sikri. In this village we found 2 caves. A very little information is there about them on internet and so we decided to see it from our own eyes.
 
So one fine morning in October 2019 we reached to the heart of the village crossing landscape which were astonishing to all of us and particularly to me as I did not expected to such scenic beauty that exist just near to Agra (where I live). Villagers wonder for our visit. We spoken with the oldies about our visit and they all took us to that place. Kids and young ones were quite excited.
 
We found a Sidh baba temple also which according to them it's origin is unknown. They just take care of it and had made a big temple just around the cave.
