Plan A tour To Delhi

Think about a city in India that preserves both modern and historical cultural heritage and you will invariably end up thinking about Delhi. The capital city of India is a treasure trove of heritage properties. Cast a glance at one corner of the city, and you will find a monument narrating its tale. At still another you will see modern developments and lifestyle demonstrating themselves quiet authoritatively.

For any first time visitor, then, it is really difficult to chalk out an itinerary that will showcase both aspect of the city, more so when the duration of visit is short. So how do you go about planning your tour in Delhi if you are here for, say, just 4 days.

Here’s what I think can be a good plan.

The First Day

Reserve the first day of your trip for the Old Delhi region. The Red Fort, Jama Masjid and the market of Chandni Chowk will keep you engaged. Covering only three destinations will give you enough opportunity to explore each of them leisurely. While the first two will give your knowledge thirsty soul a lot to ponder on, the third destination will expose you to a variety of traditional items that you can carry back home.

Chandani Chowk is an area where you can shop for a variety of items, right from jewelleries to shoes, clothes and stationery. There is Nai Sarak, Fatehpuri, Dariba Kalan, Kinari Bazaar, Bhaghirath Palace, Chawri Bazaar, Ballimaran, Old Lajpat Rai Market, Moti Bazar, Khari Baoli and Tilak Bazar markets in Chandani Chowk area, each of them famous for a specific kind of product. There is also a Paranthe wali Gali where you can enjoy various types of Chapatis, stuffed and non stuffed.

In the evening, There is a Sound and Light Show in Red Fort that recreates the events related to the fort. If you have time, you can see this show for a better understanding of the history of Delhi.

The Second Day

Move on from Old Delhi area to New Delhi area on your second day. In you itinerary today, you can include Rajghat, Akshardham Temple, Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate and the Old Fort. You can start off by paying a visit to Rajghat, the memorial of the Father of Nation – Mahatma Gandhi, and then move towards Old Fort followed by Akshardham Temple. The evenings can be reserved for visiting the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Post your dinner, you can enjoy an ice cream at the India Gate while taking a leisurely stall. Alternatively, you can carry your dinner to the India Gate and have it there itself sitting on a mat.

The Third Day

A lot of history of Delhi and India is preserved in the museums of the city. Keep your third day for a visit to few of the museums of the city. The Archaeological Museum, National Museum of Natural History, National Rail Museum and Air Force Museum are some of the most important ones that you can choose from. In case you have kids with you, then do include the National Children’s Museum and the Shankar’s International Dolls Museum Musical.

Delhi is also known for its theater performances. Today, you can keep your evening free for enjoying one theater performance – a play or a musical show.

The Fourth and the Final day

On the very first day itself, you have shopped a lot in the markets of Old Delhi. However, if you are still not satisfied (which many people are not), try out the various other markets of Delhi. Select your shopping destination carefully keeping in mind what you want to actually buy. For day to day clothes, you can visit the Lajpat Nagar market. In case you want to do a mix of traditional as well as brand item shopping, then go for Cannaught Place and Janpath. The two destinations are close by and will give you ample options for the items you want to buy. There is also the South Delhi Market where you can get top brands.

Your four days trip in Delhi will give you enough opportunity to explore its culture and heritage but despite this you will feel that there are a number of places that still remain unexplored on your trip. Keep all those that you have missed out for your next trip, and for now, relish the experiences you have just gained.

The Valley of Flowers – Delight for Visitors

Where is Valley of Flowers National Park?

The Valley of Flowers is located in Chamoli Garhwal in the state of Uttaranchal, India. It is situated at the transition point of Zanskar and Himalayan ranges.

About the Valley of Flowers

For a long period of time, barring the localites, the valley remained largely concealed from the curious eyes of tourists. It was only in 1931 that a botanist by the name of Frank Smith chanced upon this hidden treasure of Uttaranchal. The spectacular beauty of this park stunned him so much that he not only revealed it to the world but also went ahead and dedicated a book to this valley – ‘Valley of Flowers’. No wonder then, that the valley soon became a rage with tourists. In September 1982, it was granted the status of a National Park and in July 2005, it further cemented its position as a tourist destination by securing a place in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

Attractions of Valley of Flowers

Flowers, flowers and flowers – that’s the prime highlight of the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand. Once, the season arrives, the valley teems with around 300 species of flowers including Saxifrags, Sediams, Lilies, Poppy, Calendular, Daisies, Denthus, Turmopsis, Primula, Dadiculatar, Pontitala, Geranium, Cipro Nepolysis, Holly, Pansy, Zinnia, Petunia, Fox, Caropsis Dynthus and many more.

The valley also boasts of having medicinal plants Anemone, Geranium, Marsh, Marigold, Primula, Potentilla, etc,. Though not much, but the animals of the valley also deserve a mention here. Most spotted here are the Himalayan Musk deer and Yellow Throated Marten.

Best Time to Visit the Valley of Flowers Uttaranchal

Since the valley is known for its wide variety of flowers, it is best to visit the valley when the flowers are in full bloom. And this period is generally between July and August when the snow of the Himalayan region gives way to a more pleasant weather.

The Valley of Flowers Trek

Trek to the Valley of flowers begins from Govindghat. A 14 km trek from here will take you to Ghangria which will also be your base camp.
