Charming Chandigarh


Yet another "Once upon a time"... we visited the city of Chandigarh in October 2007... I guess C is associated with this city, as after visiting it you'd want to call the Charming, Calm & Cleanest City : )

Of course, its not a tourist destination per se... however the well organised & calm roads (unlike the other cities with a completely havoc wrecking traffic) provide for pleasure drive. Evenings can be spent at the lake which is quite well visited by locals and visitors alike.

Rock Garden is a must see, created out of unwanted and waste stuff like broken switches, cups, saucers, bangles, pebbles etc. A good attempt at rather carving out an amusement out of nothing rather than let the waste glorify yet another garbage dump!.... You ought to see it..... A pic is uploaded right here....

Well, if you happen to be in Chandigarh, do not afford to miss the best (I wanted to say Super Best) hill resort - Timber Trail. A complete heaven. The good thing about this mini hill station resort is that you don't have top whirl round and round trailing one of those huge mountains, by the end of which most people are in a giddy feeling.... You just have to take one or two small whirls..and there you are....at the entrance to the resort. Then take a trolley up to the actual place....and have a time of your life reaching there : )

The resort is a splendid place to spend a day with family and friends. Peaceful, cool, serene, clean are just few words to describe the feeling. The resort is a lavish one and has quite a few sports to keep you occupied....

Down below through the mist and fog is the vast view of Chandigarh city. Just relax in the arms of serene mountains and bask in glory of that dim yet snuggling warm sun.

Well, as for the details of the place, all i can say is that it takes one to one and a half hour drive from city. Climate is cool.Add to Technorati Favorites
