5 Reasons to join SHEROES - Women Travel Community

Being a traveller since 2+ years, I have been asked by people around me what inspires me to travel every now and then. Many times, I just say them that's what I love to do, exploring the new places quenches my wanderlust soul. Sharing the travel experiences to the world is something which makes me happy. Between through this journey, I have met a lot of people with travel interests and we have remained as best friends. In fact, I was more thrilled to meet the adventurous women who enjoy trekking and similar travel interests.

Every woman has to travel

Makalidurga hills - Trekking to the ancient fort temple

Makalidurga is a trek to one of the most enchanting places as this hill has twinkling skies, a rich history and a railway line running through the lush greenery of the hills. Makalidurga is located only 60 kilometers away from Bangalore and 10 kilometers away from the town of Doddaballapur. It’s because of this that a number of people, ranging from travel junkies to adventure lovers as well as those who adore nature, make their way to this stunning hill every weekend.
Makalidurga hill stands above the rest of the world at a height of 4430 feet and has a fort located at the top of its peak. The foothill is surrounded by a lake that is similar to the shape of the continent of South America, while a train runs through the lower half of the hills.  Everything is amidst lush green grasses and stunning views of nature. This day-trek will never fail to rejuvenate your mind and nerves!
About 60km from Bangalore (simply follow the maps to reach the base). Walk across the railway tracks to reach …

Vani Vilasa Sagara - Magnificient dam view and an Engineering marvel

As we grow older, our time with our parents becomes more limited. I believe that at some point in our adult lives we should take the time to travel with our parents. My parents are the coolest and supportive of my travelling endeavours. When it comes to planning the trip with my parents, I take extra care to choose places of their interest - mostly architecture and nature. I'm born and brought up in Bangalore (also my mother's hometown) and we have settled in Bangalore for around 25+ years. My Dad's native is a small village Sirihalli, which is in Shimoga district. It had been a long time we visited my grandparents as a whole family. So we decided to take a road trip to Sirihalli. A list of places marked down on the way and we started out to hit the Tumkur road. The first destination - VaniVilasa Sagara dam. My Dad loves driving car, I can say its the best thing he enjoys.

Often, I travel with a group of friends and sometimes for a family break, I plan a trip with my parent…
