A trip from HYDERABAD to LADAKH

1.HYDERABAD-GOA

I recently completed a solo trip covering some major tourist destinations like Goa, Mumbai, Delhi and finally Leh.

 10 PLACES TO VISIT IN HYDERABAD(ranked from top to bottom) -
1. GOLKONDA FORT
2. CHARMINAR
3. BIRLA MANDIR
4. RAMOJI FILM CITY
5. HUSSAIN SAGAR LAKE
6. MECCA MASJID
7. SALAR JUNG MUSEUM
8. QUTUB SHAHI TOMBS
9. NEHRU ZOOLOGICAL PARK
10. SHILPARAMAM 
 
I started out from Hyderabad and wanted to explore my journey hence used the conventional mode of transport i.e Trains. Traveling by trains you get a whole new level of experience, you get to see a variety of people. I learnt many new things about what to do in Goa, places to visit in and around etc. The train moves through one of the most scenic routes you can ever imagine, passing through tunnels, across forests and valley's. The train stops at the most beautiful Dudhsagar water falls which makes the 22 hour travel seem like worthy enough to travel again. Reaching goa by either the bus/car or flight is easier but the train journey gives you the chills and also makes it memorable. The places to stay in goa differ depending upon how much you wish to cough up, but if you want to stay away from all the madness and relax then i would suggest you to look for rooms around arpora. Goa has lots many places to visit and you will require a week minimum to explore all the important places.  

 10 PLACES TO VISIT IN GOA-

1. ANJUNA BEACH
2. AGUADA  FORT
3. TITO's STREET(for parties& night life)
4. BAGA & CALANGUTE BEACHES
5. GRAND ISLAND(FOR WATER SPORTS)
6. BOM JESUS BASILICA
7. BUTTERFLY & COLVA BEACHES
8. GALGIBAGA BEACH(the quitest beach in goa)
9. CASINO's & CRUISES
10. CHAPORA FORT


2.GOA-MUMBAI

The journey from goa to mumbai is again filled with mountain passes, hills, valleys, tunnels etc only if you take the train. Konkan railways offers the best visual experience at a very nominal cost. Mumbai is one of the busiest cities of India hence it is difficult for a first timer to fit into the shoes of a localite. The best way to move around the city is taking the local trains unless you wish to get struck in the road for hours together. Climate is very humid so it's better to pack some light clothes if you wish to move around . Beware at all times when roaming in the city as you can easily be mugged.
  
10 PLACES TO VISIT IN MUMBAI-
1. GATEWAY OF INDIA
2. WORLI SEA LINK

3. MUMBAI-DELHI

Instead for going to delhi directly from mumbai you can make some intermediate stops at Rann Of Kachh and Jaipur so that you can also cover both Gujarat and Rajasthan. Rann Of Kachh is a salt pan desert where you can camp to relax where as Jaipur is a city you can roam for shopping and also visit some tourist destinations. Moving on Delhi is divided into 2 parts, Old delhi- the crowded, a little dirty, fast paced, narrow area gives you a different experience which you cannot get anywhere else.
New delhi- the clean, peaceful, vast area is like any other metro city will all the technologically advanced facilities. In delhi you can use any mode of transport to get to places.  Agra is 250km away (3 hour drive) if you wish to visit the TAJ MAHAL.

4.DELHI-LEH   

Travelling to Leh is the trickest thing of all, you can take a flight and reach safely but miss out all the adventure or risk your life and take the bus or ride a bike on the most treacherous road in India. The bus service (ordinary bus only) starts from Delhi's kashmere gate ISBT at 14:30 passing through great routes like chandigarh, mandi, kullu, manali, rohtang pass(14000 ft) eventually reaching keylong the next day at 17:00 for a night halt. The stay in keylong is very cheap around INR 400 for the night. You can roam around to enjoy the virgin nature and sleep in for the night as probably you will be tired because of the bus journey. The next morning the same bus starts at 5:00 continuing the journey to leh passing through baralacha la, taglang la(second highest motorable road of the world), plains of leh etc reaching leh around 18:00. Accommodation in leh varies from the cheapest being INR 100 per night.
