Who says there is no water in Rajasthan? Just visit the Garadia Mahadev near Kota

Image
Hey friends,  It's been a while since I posted my last blog. Well, the wait is over now! I wanted to tell you about a beautiful place I visited during my trip to Rajasthan in December 2020.  It was the third day of my trip when I reached Kota, Rajasthan. I was coming from Sawai Madhopur (Ranthambore) where I couldn't spot a tiger during my safari. In Kota, I didn't do a lot of research to find all the places to visit. While looking for the main tourist attractions, I came across the name Garadia Mahadev  temple. The place is around 30 km from the city. Most of the places to visit were inside the city so I planned to visit the Garadia Mahadev early morning and then come back to the city.

Touring in COVID 19? Here is all you need to consider before planning your travel

Image
Being a traveler, COVID-19 has hit very hard on my travel plans in the past year. I had made plans to visit many places within India and international places as well. Unfortunately, it's not over yet and we don't know when will it be. I can understand that it is very hard for you to resist going out after the unlock started in the whole country. But going outside puts more responsibility on us so that we can prevent ourselves and others from getting infected by the Corona Virus. Here are the few tips that I am following before planning my travel and trying to stay safe from the COVID-19 wave. Look for a remote location If you are from Delhi NCR and planning to go outside, the first names that come to your mind are mostly Manali, Shimla, Nainital, or Rishikesh. Well, not a good choice because everyone planning a trip is trying to visit these places which means a lot of people around you. You definitely do not want this. The more the population density more will be the chances

Finally, I was able to travel to Madurai!
