An Adventure to Mt.Everest

Image credit : http://www.mojhi.com/

Brief familiarization for newbie Mount Everest travelers.

Mount Everest is still the eventual mountaineering dream of any voyager.  To view the earth from the one of the highest peak is probably one of most gratifying know-hows. Well an attempt on Everest is a commitment that needs huge amount of staunchness and resolve.

As I dreamt of this travel, I met a mountaineer who had already been planning for travel to this peak and had met many Everest travelers. He explained to me that not only the top of the peak but also along the route it is a beautiful experience. Every corner of the trail provides great photo occasion – stunning jungles, Sherpa settlements, glacial rubbles, and hills.
Other interesting things that I learned from the traveler where
  • Food:  Most climbers tend to keep easy to eat stuffs like a combination of Trail mix or nuts or dried fruit etc. These foods not only are safe and easy to eat, but they also have lots of slow burning releasing energy. On Everest you do not need to be worried about the fatty diet as advised by doctors! It is preferred to get fatty foods. But if you hate fatty foods, then do not force it. Most important rule is : ‘Do not try anything new’. Try something you are used to and not vice versa. At higher altitude it is difficult to digest hence it is important to focus on food that digests easily
  • Water: Most of the water is sourced by chipping clean ice from the glacier to melt for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing water for the entire team. All the water is melted from ice and there is always a hot thermos so everyone can have tea, hot chocolate, or coffee. It is important to plan and devote time to collect and melt the water that is needed for the whole day.

Well as I listened to it, it was good since it saved lot of my research. For me the dream of Mt Everest needs lot of practice. But if you are an active adventurer and not afraid to break a sweat,  then there are many full trekking support companies working at the base of Mt Everest that will help in opening a dream window at top of the world

Pickles are a significant supplement at indian homes during lunch or dinner.  Most pickles are often made from certain assortments of components (vegetables/fruits/sea food) available in the market.  Before putting the masala, the main components are finely sliced and immersed in edible oils. Most common variety of the Indian pickles are the Mango or the lemon pickle. But each Indian region bring in different flavors and has many authentic pickles.

Refreshed Bangalore Memories at "Vivanta by Taj - Whitefield"

After engineering, life has got so busy running for professional aspirations that all the college bonds have just been memories in the albums.

So when we got a chance to visit Bangalore for a business trip i decided that it's time to refresh those old memories and take control back of life.

Well as the planning started for get together, i realized that most of my friends were staying in around and Whitefield. Luckily the best pals were working in ITPL. So finally based on some research and suggestions, we narrowed down to stay at Vivanta by Taj - Whitefield

We had heard enough stories of whitefield traffic so we did not want to impede our professional commitments. But with some research , we were able to move this meetings in and around whitefield.

The drive from airport to this hotel was not bad as we reached the hotel in less than 1.5 hours in early morning. But i realized the mess of whitefield traffic when i glanced the traffic from 9am to 10am. It was horrible but luckily my hotel staff informed that this was a moving traffic which is much better than a stagnant.

Located just besides ITPL park, i think the location chosen by vivanta is excellent. During our breakfast i was able to network with many people and most of them chose vivanta due to location proximity and avoid the traffic mess.

for me it was a pleasure of both business and personal visit. The hotel staff was excellent and the staff was good at what they do (provide good service). Started the day with good breakfast and i moved around the beautiful premise.   Designed with a stylish vibe, i was told by the hotel staff that this hotel is unique 5-star hotels in Whitefield with three elements: stone, grass and sky to create a true class. Also The hotel's changes color and texture to express their potential for corporate nomads. 

With the interesting brief from hotel staff, the hotel staff also arranged a cab for us so that we can tour the city. I with my friends saw the nandi hill sunrise the next day and it was an amazing experience. Well the gathering became more fun, since we spent next two days watching movies in the nearby mall and enjoying delicacies cooked by "vivanta whitefield" chefs.

The visit not only gave me a chance to refresh the college memories but we also got some important leads for our business and made some new corporate friends. Overall it was a win-win combo and the pleasant relaxing experience at the resort made the stay more memorable.

Though the vibrant growing town of whitefiled has many upcoming hotels, i guess the location of "Vivanta by Taj - Whitefield" makes it more attractive. If repeating customers are to be believed , then no one wants to miss the service of a hospitable staff at a good location.

We will visit again soon this place. If you have any memories of staying in a hotel, then do share.


I am blogging about my luxury stay experience for an activity at BlogAdda in association with MakeMyTrip

Indian Automobile sector is going through an interesting change with so many cars and manufacturers. As the industries entertain Passengers with multiple models/options/features, i feel the ultimate winner is the customer like you and me since we get to choose from multiple options.

Expected to be launched in Jan 2017, Tata Hexa is a premium SUV. Other competitors in the same segment are Mahindra XUV500, Toyota innova etc. But what attracted me the most to hexa was its ability to drive through rough terrains, good balance at any inclination and definitely its good look.

As we (i along with my husband) entered the grounds of white orchid(place where hexa experience center was erected in bangalore) we were amused at the number of vehicles doing rounds and people waiting anxiously queues for their turn.

Entrance of Hexa Experience Centre

360 degree experience

Digital zone present besides the "tata hexa" vehicle provides a 360 degree view of the car. You can see the features inside the car or customize the car according to colors and see how it looks. The feeling was if i was sitting inside the car. You can also log on to the website and click on right hand side for "360 degree experience"

There were many other stores/entertainment/zones to support the tata hexa launch. Post experiencing the Hexa benefits, we spent time at many stalls.  Here are some brands/store who tried to add more stars to the tata motor super star "HEXA"
