About the Destination:

Most popular among trekking enthusiasts both young and old, the Rohida- Vichitragad is located amongst the beautiful forests of the Sahyadris and is one of the most exciting trekking trails. Located at about 70km from the nearest city of Pune, it is a fort that is rich with history of the Yadava, Maratha and the Moghul empires who all tried to capture the fort at some point in history.
Verdant greens and thickets of forests with pretty hamlets dotting the way is what you can hope to experience on this one of a kind trekking experience!

Culinary tour in India, finger-licking!

If you are a foodie (cmon, which one of us is not? hehe), making a cuisine tour in India is a must for you! When you think about India, I bet exotic is the first word that pops up in your head.

When it comes to traditional Indian food, it can be worth exciting and intimidating. Spices are a must in almost every dish but mind the quantity of them used in every of them. Sometimes a dish is seasoned with spices so generously, that you feel like capable of drinking the entire Indian Ocean. In this blog, we will cover some of the most popular cuisine tours in India that will not make your stomach turn :)
