Mornings at #ellasrilanka ❤
The majestic Nine Arch Bridge is one of the many attractions of Ella, Srilanka. The glorious Nine Arch Bridge between Ella and Demodara station is one of the engineering marvels in the early 20th century. This bridge, which is almost 100 years old was commissioned in 1921 under the British Government. Access to the place is not that hard, but takes some rail walk from Ella town. There is a story behind it that you would love to hear. The World War One broke out and the steel consignment allocated for this site was seized and was used for war related projects. When the work came to a stoppage the Sri Lankan (named Appuhami ) came forward and build the bridge with solid stone bricks and cement without steel. Tip:- Visit early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
One helluva adventurous day🤘 Diyaluma falls :- It is 220 m high and the second highest waterfall in Sri Lanka. . . The are several natural infinity pools on the top, but be prepared as the best way to see it (and the only one that’s really worthwhile ) is a very steep uphill walk along the way for 45 minutes each way, Totally worth it for the amazing views it offers. . . We started very late at around 1 and started the climb at 2.30 after our hard climb reached the falls perfectly at 5 when the sky was filled with beautiful colors.( For more watch stories/highlights ) . . Tip:- Start early. There are many small kids who offer to guide you till the top of the waterfall but ask for 1500-2000rs. We followed a blog named walkmyworld, they have given such apt directions to the waterfall that you would not require a guide at all.
Evenings at Ella, Sri Lanka . . One of the most beautiful places I have visited. A Paradise for trek enthusiastics. Full of greenery, gorgeous waterfalls and fantabulous views. Presenting you the gorgeous Ella rock. . . We were spellbound with this view from our homestay at Ella. 😍
The train journey🚂 from Kandy to Ella indeed is beautiful and a treat to your eyes and worth all the hype. . . Tip:- Book for reserved tickets and pick a weekday, it's ideal for 6 hours of journey and also would manage to click beautiful pictures without lots of crowds hanging at the door. . . We travelled by 2nd class and unreserved tickets, so this is what I could manage 🙈. (Check out the stories for more 👀 )
In Sri Lanka Buddhism is the official religion, with about 70% of the country's population as followers. 💫 Behind me is the Temple of the Tooth, also popular as Sri Dalada Maligawa temple located in the town of Kandy was built around one of the Buddha's teeth. 💫 As the legend goes, the Buddha’s tooth was given to the Sri Lankan monarchy in ancient times, and was passed around through various kings and holy men who hid, moved, and relocated the tooth a number of times across the centuries. . 💫 Now the tooth is housed in this dedicated temple where worshipers can visit the relic, which is held in a golden stupa inside the two-story shrine.

This is Bahirawakanda Temple, known for its giant Buddha statue at Kandy. . . The statue of Buddha is depicted in the position of the Dhyana Mudra, the posture of meditation associated with his first Enlightenment, and can be seen from almost everywhere in Kandy. . . It stands at 26.83 m (88.0 ft ) high and is one of the tallest Buddha statues in Sri Lanka. . . Trek to this place was quite an adventure for us (All thanks to Google maps 🙄,check out the stories ) . . We were dead tired by the time we reached the statue but the Aura of the statue & mesmerizing view from the top made all the effort worth it.😄 . . Tip:- Take a tuktuk if possible and pls don't follow Google maps but instead ask the local. #ridzchronicletravels

So this is how my birthday was spent. Good place, Good vibes, Good Friends and Good conversations and more than anything near to the place where I belong 'Ocean'💫 We're so programmed to thinking our life goal is to get married, have a family, build our own house or car. I'm so proud of all my friends who have built their careers, have got married and have beautiful children,their own house or car but that just isn't me( for now😬 ). I need long road trips, late nights, wild ideas, meaningless conversations.😊
Spontaneous trips are always epic. Saturday evening we decided lets go to Shirdi. 💫 And 1hr later we boarded our bus, from freezing in the A/c sleeper to reaching almost 2hrs late (ie 7.00am ). 💫 Having the quickest bath of our life and getting the most beautiful darshan in flat 1/2hour. 💫 Scenic rides with lots & lots of greenery & lunch with a view. 💫 Finally reaching back home by evening. As the saying goes " Chalo bulava aya he, Baba ne bulaya he". 📸 @sanal1601
Oh Matheran! Abode of floating clouds❤ #timelapse
हम ➖कशमीर : आख़ीर कयाें इतना खुबसुरत हे तु ? . कशमीर ➖हमें : आप सब का प्यार ही मेरी पहचान हे, शायद इस हक़ीक़त से सब अनजान हे. जन्नत आप जैसे इनसानाे से ही बनता हे, ताे अब अगर आओ ताे जाने के लीए मत आना.... ~ Self written 😄 . . I know there are perceptions by people outside Kashmir of its inhabitants with the stories floating around everywhere, but one has to go with a open mind and heart because I promise, Kashmir will never disappoint you. . If you happen to have a conversation with Kashmiri’s, one will get the essence of love, simplicity and hospitality undoubtedly. . So I urge you to visit Kashmir with open arms and with all your love. . My love for Kashmir has grown stronger and Yes I will be visiting it soon, Very soon. Eid Mubarak Everyone!🌙
Started the first trek of the season with #devkundwaterfall It was one hell of an adventure, from driving for five hours and through little to no visibility roads (after Lonavala roads were covered with fog ), getting lost, riding along in the hope to find a way where there is not even a soul around to ask the way, reaching the place but walking 2.5 hours (one way ) in heavy rainfalls Only to find a beauty so profound called “Devkund Waterfall”. . . Tip:- Please don’t put Devkund waterfall on google maps instead put Bhira village which is apt to reach the destination correctly. It is easier to reach from Pune. . . The right time to see this waterfall is after Rains maybe Oct -Nov. Due to increasing popularity of this falls, it is crowded most of the time. Best is to reach early ie before 12 a.m to avoid crowds. Great start of the season ☔️ 📷: @sanal1601
