A wanderer on weekends
I have a little dream to travel to faraway places. A world where sturdy oaks lean over me and guide me on wandering trails; where ruined monuments take me back in time; and where the mountain hides me in its crevasse. So peaceful and calming. I want to stay a little longer; walk a little further, admiring the wide emptiness that fills the soul.
Hemkuta hill with its gentle slopes offers a remarkable view of the sprawling ruins of Hampi. The hill contains many abandoned temples and boulder carvings scattered across along with two huge monolithic statues of Ganesha. It is also one of the best places to witness sunsets in Hampi.
Virupaksha was the main center of pilgrimage at Hampi since the dawn of the 7th century. Since then this UNESCO World Heritage Site has been elaborated on by future rulers and especially Krishnadevaraya, the most famous kings of the Vijayanagara Empire, who commissioned the iconic nine-tiered gateway that we identify the temple with today.
We are at the edge of Pangong Tso in the outer reaches of Ladakh at a height of about 4,350 m above seal level. The colors of Pangong lake change dramatically from a vivid blue to aqua green depending on the angle of the Sun. The beautiful lake is shared between the countries of Tibet and India.
My Footsteps on Earth
On my journeys, I have been witness to extra-ordinary landscapes, lit by the rays of a dying sun, darkened under the flying shadows thrown by the clouds which sail across the sky. Earth is no heaven but I am starting to find pieces of it.
From my Vlog
I have made it my purpose in life to travel the world as much as I can. It sounds like a an impossible dream but what is life without an impossible dream. Come with me as I search for some memorable experiences!Follow Me on Youtube
