This Breathtaking Trail Lets You Traverse Through 2 States at the Same Time!
This Wednesday Post: Explore a unique trek trail in India, hop around the postcard-perfect beaches of Western Australia, know what to eat while you play at Disneyland Paris, and more!
This one is for all thrill-seekers and nature lovers who are looking for an EXTRA dose of adventure in life!
I always thought that ‘trekking’ can only be real when we were in the ‘Himalayas’! But this bubble popped when I realized that the Western Ghats and Sahadris are equally beautiful, and have some incredible trails to explore.
So today, let me tell you about one of the most unique treks where you’ll get to traverse through two states before you find yourself amidst the ruins of a 300-year-old fort, perched on a hilltop, that was primarily used as a watch tower to look over the Nashik area in Maharashtra and the inner valleys of Gujarat.
Offering a breathtaking mix of nature's wonders, thrilling waterfalls, colorful blooms, and a dash of history - this can be your perfect getaway when you’re planning your next epic adventure!

Move Over East Coast, It's Time for the Wild West Oz!
When we say Australia, you might think of the glitzy cities on the East Coast – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast – all shiny and glamorous.
But hey, don't be fooled!
The gateway to the land Down Under from India is a hidden paradise brimming with wonders that'll make your jaw drop! Imagine a place with pink lakes that seem like they've been plucked from the pages of a fantasy novel, and beaches boasting a mesmerizing shade of blue that will take your breath away.
And it’s not just a visual symphony of colors! You’ll get to explore lush forests, meander through sprawling vineyards, encounter ancient rock formations, and immerse yourself in the rich history and stories of Aboriginal sites, surpassing even your wildest imagination.
