Monsoon Psychology @ Delhi, INDIA

Monsoon Effect in Delhi - 2010: Posted by VJ SHARMA at www.travellingcamera.com : Rains bring joy, rains bring happiness. But along with all this, rain also brings waterlogging and traffic jams in metropoliton cities such as Delhi. But in spite of all that, it is a welcome visitor. And this year, monsoon has been very generous. We had all forgotten what monsoon really means. This year it refreshed all memories...Walking through muddy roads is a challenge, especially when you are wearing flip-flops. And during rainy season, everyone get psyched enough to fold up the trouser legs even when there is no water around. It becomes more like a habit.Some images brought back memories of my childhood.Being splattered with muddy water by a rogue car is a very common tale of misery one comes across during this season of fun and mischief. With several pock-marked roads, driving through the city was a major challenge this season. One advise here is that it is best to avoid water on the sides of the road as you never know what lies beneath that deceptively placid surface.I don't know about other cities but this was a common site in Delhi. Yamuna has been flowing above the danger mark since the last 5 days and the water from the river also spilled over near ISBT.Half an hour worth of rain was enough to cause jams that lasted for hours. The drainage system completely went for a toss.But still, all of us love rains and a dry monsoon means soaring tempers, mounting irritation and silent hopelessness. So God, please give us decent amount of rains year after year.

A View of Dal Lake in Srinagar

PHOTO JOURNEY to Dal-Lake in Srinagar : Posted by Sheetal @ www.travellingcamera.com : Dal Lake is famous place to visit in Srinagar and needs no introduction... But still I will add few details about the lake with these photographs:-) Lake is surrounded by Mughal era gardens, parks, houseboats and hotels. Scenic views of the lake can be witnessed from the shore line Mughal gardens like Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Bagh built during Mughal Emperor Jahangir and from houseboats cruising along the lake in the colourful shikaras.During the winter season, the temperature sometimes reaches −10 here and lake freezes during winters...The lake is located within a catchment area covering 320 square km in the Zabarwan mountain valley which is in the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range from three sides...The lake is popular as a visitor attraction and a summer resort. Fisheries and the harvesting of food and fodder plants are also important on Dal Lake...

Manikaran and Malana covered by clouds ... A view from Bijli Mahadev

Wonderful trekking experience of Bijli Mahadev @ Kullu-Manali, Himachal Pradesh : Posted by VJ Sharma at www.travellingcamera.com :Last year when I went to Kullu Manali with my college friend, Bijli-Mahadev is the place I liked the most. Its a wonderful place on hill top from where whole Kullu Valley, Manikaran, Malana, Bhuntar and bunch of Apple Orchids can be seen... Here are few views of Bijli Mahadev...Here is the very first view on reaching Bijli Mahadev... You are seeing a yellow path on right side of the photograph, which is a road connected through some small villages and apple orchids... It connects this Bijli Mahadev with Naggar... This road is not recommended if there are rains or probability of rains...Here is the road I was talking about... It a nice walk from Bijli Mahadev...but don't go far..A view to hills in parallel with clouds...Photograph clicked while coming back towards Bijli Mahadev from that road which connects it with Naggar...Few local people sitting on an edge of Bijli Mahadev which is giving a view of Malana Village and Kasol region...Other side of Bijli Mahadev which has dense forest of Deodars on a steep hill...Friends walking around Bijli Mahadev and enjoying the chilly/fast winds here...Radio Transmission Anteena near Bijli Mahadev Temple...A view of Beas River and Bhuntar Airport from Bijli Mahadev...Closer view to Bhuntar airport from Bijli Mahadev @ Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, INDIA...A closer look to Manali Highway and green fields around it...

Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam... : A View from Dalhousie...

Main places to visit around Dalhousie : One of the popular Hill Staton in Himachal Pradesh : Posed by VJ SHARMA : For last few days I have been checking all my old photographs and dalhousie trip was most exciting with my college friends... After publishing most of these photographs, I thought of sharing all places in single post...If we take a round trip to Dalhousie via Khajjiar and Chamba, Chamera project comes on the way... Its located between beautiful hills of Chamba... There are some pine forests around it and recommended for nature walks...Panchpula is known for its waterfalls and few other water-streams, which are main source of water for Dalhousie region... Words can't define this place.. Even photographs can't express this place... Amazing place and must visit... Check out more photograph of this place by clicking on the photograph above... This is also known as Mini Switzerland of INDIA...Chamba is district headqaurter of Dalhousie and Khajjiar... There is a museum here to know more about Chamba and its past... There are few temples on hill tops...There are various walks in Dalhousie town.... Mall Road, Shubhash Chowk to Gandhi Chowk (A small road apart from Mall Road...)There are two Churches in Dalhousie.. One is near Shubhash Chowk, having colorful birds and rabbits caught inside... Other one is near Gandhi Chowk which has some fixed timings to open and close... Kala Top is Wild-Life Sanctuary and wonderful trek.. Click on above photograph to know more about the place and see few other photographs...If there is no snow in Dalhouise, go to Dainkund... You will find something to play with :-) .... A nice trek through forests and high mountains...Main river in Chamba District... Ravi River...If you go to Chamba from Dalhousie via Khajjiar, a place comes on the way which has clear way to Kailash... Place mentioned in HPTDC Tourist-Guide...Per-Panjal Mountain range can always be seen from Mall-Road in Dalhousie...Go to back side of Church at Shubhash Chowk durin sunset and spend some quality time in the evening there... Nice place to spend 1 hr during sunset... Calm road where most of the local-folks come for evening walk... Sun Reflecting off the waters of the Ranjit Singh Dam...: The good thing about Dalhousie is that the mall road is mostly empty of stalls and shops and is a great place to take a walk with your camera. There are rest benches at strategic locations from where you can see some spectacular views. If you are adventurous, you can also go on the terraces of the hotels to lean out into the valley and click that absolutely priceless shot. However, Mall road is best for day time shots and sunset is not visible clearly from there. For the sunset, the quiet road right behind my hotel was the best. All of the shots below are taken from that road. Dalousie, Sunset, Himachal Pradesh, himalayas, India, Hills

Pathankot-Jogindernagar Toy Train in Kangra Valley of Himachal Pradesh

Toy Train experience on Pathankot-Jogindernagar Railway Track in Himachal Pradesh : Posted by VJ SHARMA @ www.travellingcamera.com : I have spent one day in Kalka Shimla Toy train and few days back I had chance to travele in Pathankot-Jogindernagar Toy Train... Here are few photographs of that journey...Pathankot-Jogindernagar Toy Train crossing a bridge near Kangra....The distance of Pathankot from Kangra is 96 kilometers and  Jogindar Nagar from Kangra is 69 kilometers... This toy train takes more time than normal plain area time as it travels at very low speed and as it is a single line so train stops to give passage to trains from other direction. The train passes through valleys, rivers, many beautiful towns and towards the last stretch of the journey having clear view to snow covered Dhauladhar mountain ranges...Narrow track for Pathankot-Jogindernagar Toy Train...Railway Track near Aehju which is a small railway station near to Bir Billing...Railway junction to give pass for other trains coming from other direction... Its single lane and narrow-gauge track...This is of course a different experience as compared to other journeys in  Toy-Trains... If I compare it with Shimla Toy Train, chances of view to snow capped hills is less in case of Kalka-Shimla Toy Train... On this route there are some beautiful tea-gardens... On the other side Shimla-Kalka toy trains passes through various tunnels which is altogether a different experience...More details about trains on this route are available @ http://www.himachalpradesh.us/himachal/himachal_train2.php : I recommend reconfirming these details from IRCTC always... I have seen changes in schedule many times....As the train moves upward and this journey becomes more scenic with a distance view of snow capped Dhauladhar mountains..... Rivers become narrower with deep blue water and the train starts taking curves on hieghts... There are few tunnels in this track in comparison to Kalka-Shimla route...Toy Train passing through Pine Forests..

A View of Chenab River near Tandi @ Lahaul and Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, INDIA

Travelling Camera on back journey from Famous Shiva Temple @ Trilokinath, Lahaul and Spiti, Himchal Pradesh...This blog PHOTO JOURNEY was started on first July of 2008 and very first post was about Lahaul and Spiti... Here I am going to share some of the photographs of back journey from Trilokinath which is in Lahul district of Himachal Pradesh...Photographs licked near Tandi Bridge... As you can see in above photographs.. Tandi-0 km :)Tandi is a place in Lahaul and Spiti District of Himachal Pradesh, where Chandra River and Bhaga river meets to make Chandrabhaga....The Chandrabhaga River is also known as Chenab which is formed by the confluence of the Chandra and Bhaga rivers at upper Himalyas. It flows through the Jammu region of Jammu and Kashmir into the plains of the Punjab, forming the boundary between the Rechna and Jech interfluves. It is joined by the Jhelum River at Trimmu and then by the Ravi River Ahmedpur Sial. It then merges with the Sutlej River near Uch Sharif, Pakistan to form the Panjnad or the 'Five Rivers', the fifth being the Beas River which joins the Satluj near Ferozepur, India. For more info CLICK HEREFrom this journey, I am not able to recall any moment when snow covered Himalyas were not visible from our car.. They were everywhere... I think Lahaul and Spiti district is amazing place to chill out.. but it has another side to it.. While we were at Trilokinath, we spent some time with Pandit ji there and we got to know that most the areas disconnects from rest of the world for 7 months in an year... Can you imagine yourself living in an area for 7 months without any access to vehicles n all... Its really tough but they have planned their life according to their local eco-system...While travelling in Lahaul and Spiti, we can see beautiful valleys along with snow capped hills of Himalyan Range... This region is rich in terms of Agriculture... I am not sure about the whole district but area between Manali and Keylong had lot many valleys with agricultural land...Towards north of the state is a snow capped Trans Himalayan district of Himachal Pradesh comprising of two major valleys Lahaul and Spiti. The district is lying on the Hindustan-Tibet border... It is a tribal district with unique Tibetan Buddhist culture...

Sunset view of Shogi, a small twon near Shimla (Himachal Pradesh, INDIA)

Sunset @ Shoghi : A small twon near Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, INDIA : Posted by VJ Sharma @ www.travellingcamera.com : Shogi is small place near Shimla. Its approximately 20 kilometers from Shimla which is capital of Himachal Pradesh state of INDIA. It's on Kalka-Shimla highway and also there is a railway station for stoppage of Himalyan Queen...  Here are few sunset photographs of Shogi with my personal opinions about the place...Many of the friend have visited Shogi in the past and most of them enjoyed their stay here... For me, it was a small station near Shimla, where tourists stay due to nice hotels on cheaper rates as compared to main Shimla Town... Because I belong to Himachal Pradesh, I don't see Shogi as a very different place... Its just like other small stations in Himachal with good Resorts and Hotels...During my last visit to Shimla, I thought of going to Shogi with my friend to see the main attractions there... We drove around... We enjoyed the drive through forests and found that its a good place for a group of people to stay... There are some nice resorts at appropriate locations of Shogi... Its a place for people who want to relax from their busy schedule... Many people from Delhi come here with family and friends to sepnd some time on these hills... I had taken some Sunset shots while coming back to Chhota Shimla...

Few days back I was at India Islamic Center for some year end celebrations for one of our social project. After completion of this ceremony, when we came out of the auditorium it was raining heavily. We had to walk 100 meters to get the cab and we didn't dare to take that risk... After waiting for 20 minutes, we decided to call our driver to bring the cab near to exit gate...

Finally we started back journey towards office and clicked some photographs.. Here is one of them which is shot from moving car in Lodhi estate region of Delhi...

Raindrops on the Windshield

Travelling Camera on a long Drive in Himachal Pradesh: Mandi :: Hamirpur :: Sujanpur :: Palampur :: Dharmshala :: Palampur ::  Baijnath :: Biling :: Jogindernagar :: Posted by VJ on www.travellingcamera.com :: A couple of my friends got married in June this year. I along with a few other friends took this opportunity to travel across Himachal on road. Therefore, the long itinerary.The sights en route were countless but here are the shots of some of the most remarkable ones.Road in the Mountains with Green trees on both the sides. Looks like a green tunnel. Road between Hamirpur to Palampur through Sujanpur is pretty good. There is a small strech of 8 kilometers which is comparatively bad but work was going on there... I traveled through this road after 4 years and it has improved a lot... Road has been widened between Hamirpur and Sunjanpur, which has reduced the major pain...Raindrops on the Windshield. The shot was clicked close to Dharamshala, one of the wettest places in India. It receives a lot of rain, second only to Cherrapunji...This is a short-cut for Dharmshala when you move from Palampur through Chamunda.. This particular road was bad but you need not to worry, because main road from Palampur to Dharmshala is amazing... After new cricket stadium in Dharmshala, it's maintained very well...Beautiful Cloud Formation... Palampur Region is simply amazing and these days I am dreaming of a Villa in Palampur Hills, Valleys, and a solitary house at Billing. Bir-Billing, in Kangra district near Baijnath, is regarded as among the best in the world for Paragliding. Billing (2290 m) is the take-off site and Bir (1400 m) is the village at the landing site.The road distance between the two is 14 km. Bir is sheltered by the Dhauladhar mountains and the ridges behind keep rising to 3000 mtrs, 4000 mtrs, 5000 mtrs and one after the other so as pilot can fly at 4000 mtrs and still watch the mountains tower above. Bir is a beautiful village surrounded by tea gardens and spectacular scenery, whereas Billing offers unique opportunities for high altitude and cross country flying and flights of 180 kms have been achieved from here...The house reflected in the side-view mirror...On the way to Jogindernagar from Baijnath... There is a wide road from Baijnath to Jogindernagar.. and very good for leisure drive... Many times I suggest the drive from Palampur to Baijnath and when I saw this road after Baijnath, I am not sure what to say ...

The shot was clicked close to Dharamshala, one of the wettest places in India. It receives a lot of rain, second only to Cherrapunji...
