Let’s Save Pangong Lake, Ladakh from CHINA

Pangong lake, ladakh

Pangong Lake in Ladakh is one of the most beautiful places in India. Recently China is trying to capture Pangong from India. It has created an Indo-China war situation near the border area of Ladakh. Even though our soldiers are ready to stop them, it is high time for us to contribute to our country.

So, how we can do that? Well, I have explained that in this video.

Mr. Sonam Wangchuck from Ladakh has started a campaign called #BoycottMadeInChina. We cannot help our soldiers on the battleground, but we can make our contribution by supporting this –

“Remove Chinese software or apps from mobile in a week, like TikTok ban, and avoid hardware in a year.”

We know that it is a very tough job and won’t be possible in a few days but we can definitely try to use our wallet power.

Top Beaches in Bali You Need to Visit

padang-padang beach, bali

The island of Bali offers almost every kind of beach you can think of, ranging from the white sand and black sand beaches to rocky volcanic beaches. Whatever you like to do at the beach, there is one here for you. Use the same caution that you would at any beach and be careful when swimming, surfing or enjoying any other activities in or out of the water. The following are some of the top beaches in Bali you need to visit if you have opted for travel package to Bali from India.

Nusa Dua Beach

Nusa Dua beach is surrounded by luxury hotels and lush tropical vegetation including mangroves, orchids and palm trees. With golden sand dunes and exceptionally clear, blue waters, Nusa Dua beach is a paradise for swimmers and snorkelers. The currents are relatively mild and the waves tend to be low; surfers may want to head to the north or south ends of the beach to catch a wave.

Nusa Dua Beach

Kuta Beach

A little further down the coast near the city of Kuta is Kuta beach. If you’re a surfer, this beach is a must-visit destination with strong currents and high waves. Unfortunately, this also means that this isn’t the ideal spot for swimming. It’s also something of a party spot and Kuta Beach tends to get a bit crowded at times. However, if you enjoy the nightlife, you’ll love the multitude of beach parties, clubs and visiting the Hard Rock Cafe Bali right by the beach.

Sanur Beach

You’ll find this beach by the village of Sanur in the south of the island. It’s a huge beach, running several km along the coast, featuring golden sand. If you’re a shell collector, chances are you’ll find quite a few here and it’s also a great place to swim and snorkel, with mild waves and currents and crystal clear water which allows you to admire the ocean life up close.

Balangan Beach

Located near Uluwatu, Balangan Beach definitely deserves a place on any list of top Bali beaches. The trip to Balangan Beach is a treat in itself, taking you past small villages and beautiful rustic scenery. It’s a small beach and is generally very quiet, perfect if you’re hoping to avoid the crowds. It’s more of a beach for enjoying the sun and the sights than for swimming, since there are high waves and strong currents here, although surfers may want to pay Balangan a visit for that reason.

Padang-Padang Beach

Another Uluwatu area beach, Padang-Padang is a beautiful beach surrounded by a tropical forest (and monkeys). To get there, you’ll need to take a narrow trail and steps down to the beach. Padang-Padang is a rocky beach and also features caves which you can explore at low tide – it’s also a good swimming spot at high tide, but be careful not to step on sea urchins or sharp coral! Padang Padang beach became something of a hot spot for a while thanks to being featured in Eat, Pray, Love, but the crowds have thinned to some extent and it’s still a wonderful beach to visit.

Lovina Beach

Lovina Beach is a more obscure destination in the north of the island. It’s a volcanic black sand beach near Mount Agung and is a wonderful place to swim, with low waves and calm waters and very few tourists. There’s also a charming fishing village nearby and thermal hot springs to enjoy. Other than at sunrise, when tourists come to see dolphins, the beach is generally very quiet.

Dream Beach at Nusa Lembongan

Lembongan is actually a separate island located about 7km off of Bali, but Dream Beach is well worth the trip. This island is still mostly undeveloped and offers natural beaches and a lot of beautiful scenery to explore. Allow yourself a day for Dream Beach, since you’ll want to see the rest of the island once you’ve spent some time at the beach.

Virgin Beach Bugbug Karangasem

20 minutes north of Candidasa, Virgin Beach Bali(also known as Pasir Putih Beach among other names) is a little off the beaten track and rarely crowded by tourists. The beach is located in Bugbug Village, Karangasem. If you’re looking for a quiet day at the beach in Bali, make sure to visit Virgin Beach. Diving, snorkeling, fishing, and some water activities are perfect to do in Virgin Beach, Bali.

Amed Beach Karangasem

Amed Beach is well known among divers and snorkelers as one of the best places in Bali, if not the world for diving and watching ocean life. Amed is a small fishing village in the northeast of the island, but has become a significant draw for tourists in search of underwater adventure. Despite its out of the way location, nearly 3 hours from Ngurah Rai International Airport, Amed Beach is well worth the trip. The best way to get to Amed is by hiring a car and driver from a Bali car rental service since there is no public transportation available to this top Bali beach.

Weekend Trip to the Sundarbans – the Land of Tigers

sundarbans, mangrove forest

It’s been a long time I haven’t posted anything on my blog. Well, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t traveled anywhere. 🙂 I kept my resolution of visiting at least one new place every year. The year 2020 started with a refreshing trip to the Sundarbans, which is a 3-hour journey from Kolkata.

Last year, I went to Nepal and Kodaikanal. In 2018, it was Mayapur ISKON and then Chikmagalur. In 2017, I visited Ooty and Coonoor with my family. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time…rather enthusiasm to blog about those trips as I have become lazy these days.

Anyway, there is no point repenting on what I could do and did not do. Let’s start with our Sundarban trip.

Located on the delta of the confluence of Ganges, Meghna and Bramhaputra rivers, the Sundarbans is the world’s largest mangrove forest and the natural habitat of Royal Bengal Tigers. The core area of the Sundarban Tiger Reserve was named the Sundarban National Park in 1984 and it became a Natural World Heritage Site in 1987. Only 40% of this huge mangrove forest lies within India. The rest belongs to Bangladesh.

mangrove forest, sundarban

The main attraction of this trip is the boat safari. It is all about sailing along the rivers and creeks with dense mangrove forest on both sides and being watchful if you can catch a glimpse of the tiger or other wild animals. We spotted crocodiles, wild boars, spotted deer, monitor lizards, eagles, cranes and few other types of birds. It was 2 nights and 3 days conducted tour, which is, perhaps, not enough for exploring the rich flora and fauna of the place. But it’s not very safe either to go deeper into the wilderness.

Well, it’s sheer luck to catch a glimpse of the king of the jungle. And fortune did not favor us this time.

In those three days, we visited Sajnekhali watchtower and Mangrove Interpretation Centre, Sudhanyakhali and Dobanki watchtowers. The watchtowers offer a 360-degree view of wide-open forest land and swamps. There are a few sweet water ponds near watchtowers. If you are lucky, you can spot animals that come to drink water.

We took time out to explore the nearby village in the morning on the third and last day of our Sundarban tour and bought some fresh honey from a local village shop.

How to reach:

It’s about a 3-hour journey by car from Kolkata to Godkhali launch jetty. You can also take the train Canning Local from Sealdah and take a taxi or auto-rickshaw to Godkhali. Whether you go by car or by train, finally you have to take a ferry from Godkhali port and cross the river to reach Sundarban. Our tour company arranged an AC Volvo bus. Starting at 8:45 in the morning from Esplanade, Kolkata we reached Godkhali port at around 1 pm.  

Where to stay:

There are a few good resorts in Sundarban. Located on the riverfront, Tiger Roar Resort offers a pleasant stay and good food. We booked two luxury rooms for my family. You can read my detailed review of the accommodation on Tripadvisor.
