Heritage Stays In Himachal Pradesh

Heritage stay Himachal

Garli, Himachal Pradesh
A sleepy little village nestled in the Kangra valley, Garli could almost be a place suspended in time – heritage buildings, temples & shrines, local craft. But, enjoying Kangri chai next to a pond as you marvel over the reflections of the night sky gives you a different high! With elegant havelis, mansions and Italianate buildings, interspersed amongst lovely mud-plastered and slate-roofed houses, Garli is a hamlet waiting to be discovered. With an amazing diversity of architecture (some decaying & some crumbling), scenery, bio-diversity, Garli remains relatively unspoilt, giving her a medieval ambience. Recognizing the need to protect their heritage, in December 2002 the Government of Himachal Pradesh notified Garli as a Heritage Village.

Exploring caves In Vietnam

Largest caves in Vietnam

Son Doong Cave, Vietnam

Son Doong cave, the world's largest cave was a best kept secret up until recently. A vietanamese local said to have accidentally stumbled upon the cave in 1991 and almost two decades later in 2009 the cave was officially discovered by British cavers. It scales at a majestic 9 kilometres length, 200 metres height and 150 metres width. It was an outcome of mountain erosion caused by the river water and hence the name - Mountain River cave. Only a part of this cave is now open to public viewing, but these dizzying views are enough to make even an atheist believe in God.
What makes this cocooned utopia even more wonderful is the forest and river that it houses- the greens bloom in their full glory due to the weak limestone that had caved in, creating huge skylights that allow the ethereal sunbeams to cut in, thus permitting the ecosystem to flourish inside. The cave hosts some of the tallest stalagmites in the world that rise up to 70 metres.
