Since its comes under the Western Ghats, here one can find eccentric endangered plant species, which makes it a power station of herbs.

With such lush flora and presence of water bodies, obviously here one tend to find some imperil bird species like Indian Peafowl, Little Grebe, Grey Nightjar, Crested Treeswift, to name a few.

Nagzira Wildlife SanctuaryMaharashtra
Sprawling over an area of 150 square kilometers, Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the Bhandara district; the eastern part of Maharashtra. The sanctuary got its name from the fact that a temple of 'Nag' (Snake) and Mahadeo is located deep inside the forest, and 'zira' (zara) in Marathi means a perennial source of water; thus the name - Nagzira. In the year 1970, the area was tagged as the 'wildlife sanctuary' and in 2012, the state government announced its merger with the project tiger. Along with tigers, which can be seen by looking closely, the wildlife sanctuary is also famous for the presence of many endangered species, such as panther, small Indian civet, palm civet, jackal, and flying squirrel, among others. Wild dogs and Sloth bears are also seen in big groups. Many tourists are also greeted by the incredible sight of sloth bears cubs hitch-hiking on their mother’s back. What makes this sanctuary even more unique is its bird's population flocking to the lakeside. A good number of eagles, orioles, grey-headed fish eagle, drongos, and ground thrushes are prominently seen hovering in the sky.
Despite its location in the business hub of India, the sanctuary is far away from the urban life as solar energy fulfills the demand for all the necessary lighting. So, if looking for a great holiday in wilderness than do consider a vacation in Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary.

Kashmir is famous for artefacts made out of walnut wood and the Dal Lake is dotted with many workshops which make these incredibly beautiful and intricate pieces of art. We end up meeting Shahnawaz of Chako and his brothers. He has been running the family business for many years and proudly shows us around his workshop. Inside, stunning replicas of elephants, horses and dragons, intricately carved out of wood, adorn the walls. In another corner, double-layered mortars and pestles, pen holders and jewellery boxes, all polished to perfection, beg for admiration. So much work has gone into making these perfect pieces of art and yet Shahnawaz finds very few takers these days. There was a time, of course, when Kashmir was a peaceful place and their artefacts and furniture were shipped all over India and were picked up by foreign buyers too. Now sitting alone in his office, the walls of which he has decorated with the awards and prizes he has won, Shahnawaz fondly remembers his past days of glory.

The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less..

Would you live in this house on the edge ?
Question is. What about groceries? Who'll go get them?
You're allowed to travel the way you want, as absurdly, as seriously.
You're allowed to travel with a briefcase, a backpack, or all your clothes stuffed in a laptop bag.
You're allowed to sit in same locality or cafe for seven days and do nothing but laugh with new people you meet, or just go berserk in a weekend long trip trying to take as many trails as you can.
You're allowed to walk from Manali to Leh, or take a flight from Delhi to Leh.
You're allowed to sit quietly in a corner and not interact with anyone new, or you can just return from a trip with a new group of friends.
You're allowed to check out the same old spots and be glad with it, or you can just skip that part and explore something new if that brings joy to your heart.
Because right at the start, the only thing you need to know and understand is that
This is your story, and you're allowed to write it the way you want. 'cause no traveller is better than the other, for they all return with memories as unique as possible.
The news this month of the ruling by the Indian Supreme Court that women may not be barred from Sabarimala Temple in Kerala made me recall this moment six years ago when I touched down at the Cochin Airport along with these men who were embarking on their pilgrimage on foot to Sabarimala which is only open certain days each year

Good morning! Just landed in Bangalore and the first Delhi vlog is up on my YouTube channel. Click the link in my bio to watch.
It's a very nostalgic vlog as I'm back in Pahar Ganj after 1 year. It's incredible how much has changed in that year😳 Initially I planned on settling in Mumbai but life took me to Bangalore. Now I actually have a HOME in India to return to after a trip😍🙏🏻.
Delhi was amazing but now I'm off to bed as I had an extremely early flight back HOME. Going to sleep in MY OWN bed. Can't express how much this means to me and what peace comes from that. 🙏🏻💖🇮🇳
