The monotony of our corporate jobs clubbed with the pressures of deadlines led my friends and I to wish for an escape somewhere close to our city – Bangalore. We didn’t want to drive for long and targeted a place no more than 150kms from our city. After much deliberation, we decided upon Hogenakal Falls in the state of Tamil Nadu which was roughly 130kms from Bangalore. It is a waterfall carved out by the continual flow of the Kaveri river which forms breath-taking gorges which makes Hogenakal such an iconic place to visit.

A beautiful destination on the outskirts of Rishikesh (Uttarakhand) almost 12 to 15 km away from the city, this place called "Byasi" is a totally mesmerising place, or you can call it a heaven on earth. Majestic mountains, crystal clear holy water of River Ganga and fresh breeze all around. What else does a peaceful mind need for Nirvana?
Sun Valley, in the heart of the State of Idaho, in the heart of the American West, is truly a gem. The mountain gods threw down a bolt of lightning that struck this high desert oasis, between the World Wars. The iconic Averell Herriman, bold American entrepreneur, hired the best Austrian mountain guides he could find to board his Union Pacific Railroad car and set up an Alp style Ski Resort mountain destination. In 1936 Sun Valley Idaho was founded. I spent the 2017-’18 winter season here teaching skiing.
