Silent Valley National Park

Silent Valley Kerala 21

Last time I was in Kerala in December, I visited Silent Valley National Park, an undisturbed botanical paradise in the South-Western Ghats rain forest and tropical moist evergreen forest in India. Silent Valley is located in the Nilgiri Hills, Palakkad District of Kerala. The name Silent Valley was formed because of absence of the noise

Coorg

Coorg 1

I wish we had more time to spend in Coorg. I know it’s more than what we have seen. I looked at the endless, thick and green terrain and thought I would regret not trekking and getting lost in it. And I did. I was disappointed. I remembered reading about natural berries vinegar, and exotic

Since I posted the pictures of our little trek to a nearby mountain on this blog and on Instagram (@tesathome), I have gotten a lot of questions about it. So where is this cozy pretty spot hidden right next to the heart of the city? Well, this beautiful hill is next to Pune Airport. Take

Drive from Anjarle to Pune Map

There’s more than one way to go from point A to point B. And in travels, we always open to try the routes we never took before. So, when we went to Dapoli a few weeks ago, we decided to take another route to come home. That way, we got to see more places, and

Trip to Murud, Dapoli Picture 16

I heard a lot about Dapoli. People say it’s a little paradise surrounded by peaceful beaches and green mountains everywhere. It’s a bit of a drive from Pune. It took us about 6 hours to get there, but every mile of our journey was painted with luscious wild sceneries on both sides. Dapoli is about 215
