Posted by madhushri on July 03, 2016

Since I moved to Manipal in 2012, I have explored more beaches than ever before! I have always loved the sea because I believe, it lets you find your soul. For further clarity you might like to take  Travel Lessons; Find your soul, what are you, by my favorite teacher- The Sea!

Ever since I developed a beautiful relationship with the ocean, I have been on a voyage to discover pristine, undisturbed beach destinations from Gujarat in the North-west, to Kerala in the South-west. I have explored Puducherry in 2015, on the East coast and have been to West Bengal in 2008 but never have I come across something as unique as Gokarna. Gokarna is that place where your body and mind get the much deserved break from the daily hustle and bustle of life! So whenever I feel like relaxing in the arms of wavy blue waters- Gokarna it is with no second thought!

I pen this as my flight takes off and flies over the Indian Ocean. So here’s a soulful photo journey of this secret beach in India-

Every tourist city in the world has its unique tale to tell, and Jaisalmer in Rajasthan is one such city that has numerous stories to tell to the world.

Apart from the royals of the bygone era,Jaisalmer is also home to unequal beauty and valor that keeps the city alive and attractive to the rest of the world. Located deep in the Thar desert, Jaisalmer is also known as the Golden City of India and as the gateway to the great Indian desert.

So if you are planning to visit Jaisalmer via flight, then you have to catch a Jodhpur airport to jaisalmer taxi which will cost like $50. So popular firms in Jodhpur or Jaisalmer who offer taxi from jodhpur to jaisalmer are Maharaja Cabs, Chetram, Voyages and Rajputana Cabs.

If you are in Jaisalmer, you just cannot miss visiting the Thar Desert for a camel safari tour of Jaisalmer. There are two different options for the desert safari. One is the jeep safari in jaisalmer which is for all those who don't want to ride on camel at sand dunes, which is awesome. For those who are interested in enjoying traditional way should ideally opt for the camel safari.

Camels are globally known as the ship of the desert, and they are the ones that take you through the rural desert life of Rajasthan on their backs.

The ideal place to start with the desert safari is from the Sam Sand Dunes, which is located around 45 km away from the city of Jaisalmer. Hop on to a camel which will take you through the crests and the troughs of the desert stretch that has scarce or no vegetation’s at all.The camel ride will cost you Rs 500 per person while the jeep safari will cost you Rs 1000 per person for a walk through the desert. The duration for the safari varies with camels and the jeeps. On the jeep, the safari is for one hour while on the camel, it is for two hours.

The sunset points of Sam

The sunset point at Sam Dunes is one of the star attractions of the desert safari in Jaisalmer. The camels and the sand dunes make for the perfect background for the sunset in the evening. It is aspectacle to behold, and if you want to capture your memories in your camera,that too looks just spectacular. Just like the sunset point in Sam, it is also well known as the sunrise point. If you stay back at the Sam sand dunes, you can catch both the sunset and the sunrise on the dunes for a great view of an event which is an everyday affair but can be a once in a lifetime memory for you.

If you stay put at one of the Sam sand dunes desert camps, you can also enjoy an evening program, after the sunset with bonfires and local folk dancers that perform the Kalbelia dance in the night in front of the Bonfire.

It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for sure,and you should not miss it by any chance when you are visiting Jaisalmer on a leisure trip.

Reuse and Recycle

An appeal through visuals to recycle our solid waste responsibly

"Mother earth is a temple, not a dustbin" screamed a notice board in a tea shop at Varkala beach, Kerala.  The plastic, thermocol, Styrofoam etc which we so carelessly throw away, finally lands up in the ocean, carried by rain, rivers etc.


The short video I put together on World Oceans Day,  portrays the simmering anger of the oceans through the incessant beating of the Dhol.


Watch it at

Oceans and Us

When I write "plastic" and hit the search button on  http://IndianwildlifeClub.com, I get a few pages of results.  Here are a few random one liners from those results, which sum up our plastic malady.


"Major cause of floods was Mumbai’s plastic bags choking the city’s drainage system."



"Storm-water drains choked with ubiquitous plastic carry bags are partly responsible for Mumbai's woes."


"The Maharashtra government announced the decision to ban the use of plastic bags across the state after reviewing the situation."


"A landmark 1990 study by the research firm Franklin Associates—says

 Plastic is not biodegradable, it litters our waterways and coastal areas, and has been shown to choke the life out of unsuspecting wildlife."


"The leather-back turtle feeds almost exclusively on jellyfish and cannot distinguish between plastic bags and jelly fish"




Fish and sea birds have been choking on plastic litter




And now, we have the Bengal tiger holding up a plastic cement bag left out near a water hole, as if to ask what am I supposed to do with this?


Watch this terrible episode we were witness to at the link


Sharmilee, Virat and Pandit - Corbett National Park 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkea2m2gJow


Let us empower the rag picker who helps recycle bio-degradable waste.


If we go by road to Corbett National Park, you have to pass a place called Kashipur.  Here, for miles at a stretch, we see plastic gunny bags, just like the one our tiger is carrying.  These are filled with more plastic and more bio degradable stuff.  They seem to be piled on the road sides for ever awaiting disposal/recycling. 


Empower the waste recycling factories and give them visibility before we drown ourselves in plastic waste.

Plan a road trip from New Delhi to Jaipur and Agra

Posted by Pratap Singh on May 20, 2016

So you from Delhi? And want to enjoy the most popular road trip of Golden Triangle? The check out our tips on how to plan a road trip from New Delhi to Jaipur and Agra.

Hire a car - When you have an adventurous bent of mind, a well-planned road trip can accentuate the travel enthusiast in you.  However, planning a road trip always involves friends in groups so that you can enjoy the trip at its best. If you want to enjoy a good road trip, it is better always to hire a good condition car from the local travel agency. For instance, if you are traveling from Delhi, get in touch with the local tour operator and select a well-maintained SUV or a big sedan car like the Maruti Suzuki Dzire or the Toyota Etios. No matter where you plan to visit, whether it is Jaipur or Agra, it will only take you around 4 to 5 hours of drive from Delhi.

So for Agra we suggest our guests to either go for a Same day Agra tour in a car like Dzire or Innova. And of you are traveling via train then you should contact a local car rental Agra operator.

Pink City Jaipur - It will take you 5 hours to drive to Jaipur from New Delhi. The best time to start driving is in the morning so that you can reach the Pink City by lunch hours. Have an excellent Rajasthani cuisine meal and retire for the rest of the afternoon. In the evening, it is time to explore the city at its best. Go for a "group night tour" at various interesting tourist destinations like the Hawa Mahal, City Palace and the Jantar Mantar, which are all in close vicinity to each other.

When in Jaipur, you just cannot miss visiting the magnificent Amber Fort. Located atop a hill, it is one o fthe most popular tourist destinations in Jaipur. Enjoy a superior light and sound show at the Amber Fort in the evening and finally reach the Choki Dhani at dinner time to enjoy yet another sumptuous Rajasthani cuisine that is simply mouthwatering in taste.

The next day, enjoy a trip to the Jaigarh Fort and also to the famous Jal Mahal. If you are fond of cultural programs, in the evening, you can also head towards the Samode Haveli for a fun filled and exciting cultural program. And with this you have now explored complete Jaipur with a nice Jaipur sightseeing Package.

Day 3 in Agra - Your next leisure destination is Agra, which can be traveled straight from Jaipur. The first place that you can visit once you reach Agra is the Taj Mahal. It is imperative to say that Taj stands tallest among all the remaining tourist spots in Agra. It is the only love memorial in the world that fetches people from different parts of the globe simply for a glimpse of the impressive structure.

Once you have soaked in the purity and the beauty of the Taj Mahal, you can head towards the Agra Fort, which is around 60 km away from the Taj Mahal. There are also the Akbar’s Tomb and the Mehtab Bagh, and the Ram Bagh that is worth exploring. Stay overnight at one of the hotels and in the morning visit Fatehpur Sikri for studying an excellent example of Mughal Empire luxurious life.

Once all these places are covered, your road trip from Delhi to Jaipur and Agra comes to an end in just four days.

A trip of Wildlife explorotation at Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary New Delhi

Posted by Pratap Singh on April 29, 2016

Blog
Me and my gand decided to share a story here at indianwildlifeclub.com that even is India's biggest urban city wildlife exists. Yes in New Delhi we might not have a big national park like Ranthambore Tiger Reserve but there are some green spaces which a wildlife lover might find attractive to visit.

So lets get started with Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary

At Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary one can escape the urbanest of New Delhi and see a large variety of birds and animals like 200+ species of birds, 100 butterflies species, jungle cat, jackals, blackbuck, nilgai and most popular & my favorite black-naped hare which is also referred as Indian hare.

Along with this there is CEC (Conservation Education Center) & Bombay Natural History Society has a small presentation for visitors which educate on Flora & Fauna of Arvalli and also teaches how to conserve it.

Most guests here which I noticed were families with small children and I also met with a family who run a nice hotel in south Delhi by the name of Hotel GTC who told us that this sanctuary is perfect for those who wants to educate their children about the importance of wildlife. Good thought.

We visited the Sanctuary in April which is pretty hot. So I will suggest that the best months to spend a day here is in Winters of New Delhi which are from the months of September to February. Plus I will also suggest to carry extra bottles of water as this is an eco-zone so you won't find much options of water bottles inside the park.

For travelers who are especially visiting Delhi to explore Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, accommodation option nearby are Greater Kailash or Noida. And if you want any extra information then feel free to comment of share this post on Twitter along with @jsc_999, I will love to assist.

An eco tour at Lohagarh Fort Resort Kukas Jaipur

Posted by Pratap Singh on April 25, 2016

Blog

In one of our previousposts here we shared that in Jaipur elephant safari has brought many travellersclose to the life of an elephant as after the ele-safari tour they came to knowabout a few thing on elephants which they would have never thought.

And todaywe just find out a eco-friendly resort near the elephant safari tour place bythe name of Lohagarh fort resort. Now we are writing about this resort as ithas proven that eco-tourism can be a real earning luxury business and they haveproved it.

Now Lohagarhfort resort is a 12-acre area which was previously dead part near Aravallihills (Kukas) and team Lohagarh invest their time and money to convert thiswaste land into lush green gardens. The first developed 5 cottages along with apool and restaurant which they later added 6 more cottages, 2 tree houses and afew Swiss tents and a nice bar.

Well youcan say that what’s the big deal? Now the big deal here is that none of thesecottages, tree house etc, has plastic and everything here is natural ororganic. Like the walls of the cottages is made up of white stone with low useof cement, not even a single interior or furniture has plastic or lead and theyhave created 80% of the resort as green zone, highest one can have in anyresort in Rajasthan.

So whenyou enter this place there is a cave like entry which is like 200-300 mts andleads you to their restaurant. From there you can see the pool and the treehouses. One thing which I really like that their pool have a shape of smalllake which is quite unique and the rope which they have added above is awesome.

The walklike 100 mts and you will find your cottages and a few mts ahead is their SwissTent. A walk of the complete resort will definitely shed a few pounds.

So do visit Lohagarh FortResort in Jaipur Rajasthan and do checkout their tree house and suites beforebooking them.

Jaisalmer Wildlife and tourism are going hand in hand

Posted by Pratap Singh on April 18, 2016

Blog
Since 2010 the government of Rajasthan has taken some actions to promote eco tourism in many cities which are famous for their wildlife like Ranthambore and now the government have also declared national parks as eco-sensitive zones which means that one can't construct permanent accommodation in jungle area.

This policy isn't just for national parks with green forest but also for the sand dunes of Jaisalmer which after this decision has implemented new ideas to promote tourism with innovative ideas. So in this post I would love to share a view of eco tourism of Jaisalmer which is attracting many to visit the sand dunes of Sam from October to March every year.

1. Desert Camps - More the 100 camps have been set in Sam region and not just Swiss tents, here we have small restaurants offering local food, musical program from local dancers and bonfire events. All those events are mostly seen in Jungle camps and now are available in desert camps too. A wise example is to check this site on Jaisalmer Desert Camps and Jaisalmer Desert Tents at Sam which offer desert camp accommodation, nice dinner and an awesome musical evening at Sam sand dunes.

Suggested site to view more on desert camping in Sam sand dunes, Jaisalmer is Jaisalmer desert tent, Dangri Jaisalmer desert camp and Khiri desert camp.

2. Desert Safari - Well as you have jungle safari in national parks we have desert safari in desert dune areas. One can either enjoy a 30 mins to 2 hour camel safari or an hour ride in Jeep safari. Plus if you are one of those travelers who love to walk then a trekking trip to the sand dunes will be a new experience.

3. Nearby attractions - Well Sam is just 45 kms away from Jaisalmer and I must say that the road conditions here are excellent. So one can either explore many tourist spots of Jaisalmer like Golden fort, Gadisar lake or visit the haunted city of Khuldhara which is in between Sam and Jaisalmer.

4. Best time to visit Sam - From the months of April to September the weather is very hot in Sam as it touches 55 and there are also some sand storms which no travelers wants to experience. So October to March are perfect for a Jaisalmer holiday.

For more information one can contact local desert camps sites as they can offer more details which one needs if they are planning to spend a holiday in Sam & Jaisalmer.

Tiger Task Force Report

Tiger Conservation

Posted by Susan Sharma on April 14, 2016

Blog
.....what most agencies in the government are silent on are the pressures of a developing economy on tiger habitats within the country. Most tiger corridors that are vital for the big cat to move out and colonize other areas are under immense threat, such as Kanha-Pench in Madhya Pradesh or the road that has destroyed the link from Kaziranga to Karbi Anglong in Assam.

All of these corridors are under siege from projects to build highways, canals and thermal power plants. If India’s tiger reserves were kept well-connected through a network of corridors, then lakhs of rupees would not have to be spent on reintroduction programmes. Tigers would naturally recolonize other areas meant for them. But that’s the elephant in the room that everyone wants to ignore......
