Hathipaon, Mussoorie

Took family to a off-beat hill station of Uttarakhand, Hathipaon (translated in English as Elephant foot). Not sure why this name is given to that place, but the hill station is beautiful and very peaceful. Few pics which I have captured of this trip.

Ranthambore national park, Sawai Madhopur

A destination not far from home and was thinking to visit their at least once, has finally happaned this month.

It takes 10 hr to drive their from Delhi, booked a room in RTDC hotel Jhoomar Baori and went for it between 3rd and 5th of November. Best route in my opinion would be to use Yamuma Expressway to reach Mathura and then take a right till Dausa and again take a left from Dausa.

The hotel is located 2 KM under the forest and sometimes tigers roam in that area as well. Hotel manager informed us one night that there was call from Sambhar deer, which means Tiger is around the hotel, we drove to the gate after dinner in a hope and returned back empty handed :(. But overall stay in hotel was memorable, it a highly recommended place if you wish to spent few days away from buzz.
