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.

But unfortunately, they are held up by internal forces and the desire just dies within. I strongly feel they are missing the world out there which is vast. We have one life and our time on earth is limited and the w

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 - Beautiful reservoir 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. We decided to take a trip to Shimoga to meet our grandparents. A list of places marked down on the way and we started out to hit the Tumkur road. The first destination - Vani Vilasa Sagara / Marikanive dam in Chitradurga. Brief on Vani Vilasa Sagara Dam / Marikanive dam V ani Vilas Sagar Dam / Vani Vilasa Sagara, also known as Mari Kanive , is the oldest dam of Karnataka built 103 years ago. It is located in Hiriyur taluk of Chitradurga district , which is 160 km from Bangalore . The dam is an exquisite piece of architecture, an engineering marvel for that time, and provides water to lots of surrounding cities, to

Magnolia - Pan Asian rooftop restaurant, Koramangala

Koramangala has always been an ideal place when it comes to restaurants. In fact,  I envy the Koramangala residents for having great restaurants in the vicinity. A number of times when I drove 80 feet road, Koramangala 3rd block - The red lanterns of Magnolia always impressed me. Also, read that this place started in early 2000 -  used to be the go-to restaurant to dine in Koramangala and still has been the recommended restaurant for Pan Asian food . On an evening, we finally stepped into this rooftop restaurant to savour our taste buds with Pan Asian cuisine. Ambience The ambience here is spectacular with spacious lit up roofs - a feel of starry nights, hanging stars and umbrellas , red lanterns to adore, water wall - a feeling of rain, comfortable sofa seatings and indoor plants. The special interiors include a 3D wall - this was one of the unique interiors which Magnolia impressed me.  Shockproof led lights to capture a long exposure shot - that's interesting to try som

Heritage Winery - SULA wine tour and tasting

It was 11 am in the morning when we bid adieu to SRS hills and DevaraKere lake .  Channapatna has notable wineries and the tropical climatic conditions here are suitable for grape cultivation yielding great sugar content.  We had the whole day with us and we started driving towards Heritage wine tour , which is located in Channapatna. Honestly speaking, I'm not a connoisseur of wines or a tippler , who regularly grabs a drink often. Still, I was curious to know how wines are made, how would it be to walk in a vineyard with grapes in full glory. This inquisitive feeling made me pay a visit to Heritage Winery. Journey There were two routes to reach - 1. the Mysore road highway and 2. the countryside route via Bylalu to reach Channapatna . Instead of choosing the highway, we chose to ride on countryside road just to take a glimpse of village life. Shady trees along the roadsides, fresh unpolluted air to recuperate, calm lakes and endless green farms. It was worth a drive along this r
