Image result for health

If you're already done with all the preparing, this will provide a checklist!

1. Google
Google out the position that you're preparing to go to for your therapy. Write down the regional way of life, the meals locations, the elements and varying climate circumstances of the country/ condition you are going to. This provides you with a reasonable concept of factors you are going to need.
2. Get your Records together
The next factor to do would be to get your documents in position. If you are travelling overseas, you will need your solution and a charge. However, if you are looking for a household wellness journey, get the needed evidence prepared. Ensure that you have your documents prepared before you guide a solution.
3. Gather your wellness record from your doctor
After reservation, your passes, examine out your physician and collect from him your wellness and drugs record because this will provide the new physicians with a brief concept of your previous therapies. Also, be sure to gather all your newest reviews from your physician, and have his tips mentioned down before you keep.
4. Discuss to your insurance strategy agent
In situation you have insurance strategy, examine with your broker if the strategy will protect any of your therapy or journey costs. Determine the important points about your wellness holiday insurance strategy, this will confirm economically useful.
5. Package smart
If you are travelling to get handled, it is apparent that you will hardly have any moment to run around and buy factors if you keep them behind. Create guidelines of all the factors you will need while you are travelling.
Make sure you don't pack too much of things, holding around large luggage will always be a discomfort. Thus, create sure you pack just enough.

6. Prepare for communication
If you are going to a nation, the regional terminology of which you are different with, create sure you organise for a translation or remain in locations where you have a terminology in typical. Interaction holes have led to many a disaster, and you don't want to be engaged in one!

A trip to Rishikesh with family

Ganga ghat

 A couple of days ago I came back from a two day Trip to Haridwar and Rishikesh. This was my first time at both these destinations and the highlight was simply the sacred river Ganga.
People Bathing at River Ganga

Since I went with my family, the emphasis was more on religious significance of these places as high on our agenda's was bathing in the holy river Ganga, Visiting 'Mansha Devi' and 'Chandi Devi' temples, attending the famous Aarti on Ghats of Ganga in the Evening at Haridwar and visiting 'Laxman Jhula' and 'Neelkanth Mahadev' temple at Rishikesh.

Laxman Jhula

We managed to accomplish most of these but only missed the Aarti due to inordinate delay at Chandi Devi temple. The people of both these places are helpful and cooperative. The facilities for commuting, Staying, eating at both Haridwar and Rishikesh are good.

I was all excited at the prospect of driving both ways (recalling my excellent experience of driving to Mathura a couple of months ago) but this one was a complete let down, The roads on the highway are below average after you leave Delhi, and it being a two-way highway with heavy traffic, you can forget all the fun and better concentrate on some serious driving. Once you enter Uttaranchal (starting Roorkee) the roads get better and stay the same way throughout, the traffic in Uttaranchal also gives you some respite. The stretch from Rishikesh to Neelkanth is a delight as well as a challenge, considering the steep and slim roads. It is advisable to park your cars at Rishikesh and hire a Taxi, or simply walk along.

Enjoy your trip.

Mata Vaishno Devi temple

Shri Mata Vaishno Devi is one of the holiest Pilgrims of India for Hindu Religion,A 12 km journey from Katra to Vaishno Devi temple, A journey filled with thousands of Devotee, Eager for her blessings, hence we decided to take a trip to Shri Vaishno Devi temple. 

Shimla,Manali,Dharamshala we've been to places but have you ever gave a thought of visiting any holy site for even once. trekking for a good cause, for a  hope in that, when we reach the top we can thank the god for whatever we are today. So, from this thought our Journey Begun.
Katra station

we  travelled by Kalka- Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra express train from Jalandhar Cantt. the train left the station at 10.35 pm and arrived  Katra at about 4.35 am. we stayed in the hotel took a nap and then we visited yatra parchi (travel slip) counter to take slips to start the journey on foot. we can get yatra parchi advance online free of cost from the website of trust of Mata Vaishno Devi.

After getting done with the travel slip, our journey started. For the first time in my whole life, I wasn't afraid of walking 
12 km that too through the mountains but there was something magical in there maybe the People, maybe the temple I don't know what it was but it kept me going.

It was already 6 km and I took a break as we've already reached our first stop "Ardhkavari" it is the place where you can rest. guest rooms are easily available in there that too free of cost so, I had some rice with stuffed potatoes and started trekking to the temple. Nobody was tired as such ,we were clicking pictures talking to each other and enjoying the weather.

Helicopter service

For a well and physically fit person, it will take roughly four to five hours of the trek to get to the temple .after almost 3 hours we reached the temple. WOW, I was totally amazed, the view was breathtaking, thousands of people standing in line waiting for their turn. We did the same and after almost an hour we got in as no cameras were allowed in there so I kept quite and took the blessings and trekked down by the midnight we were already in our hotel.
This is how the Central Bhawan looks

we decided to take the night train and this is what we did in Vaishno Devi. It doesn't matter whether you are Hindu,Muslim,Sikh you can go visit this holy place anytime.

Enjoy your Travel and Thank me later.

Trip to Shimla

Bored of the daily routine, my friend and I planned for a weekend getaway post the queen of hills in winter vacation to Shimla - a serene hill station in the lap of  hills. It is located at an altitude of 2276mtrs, highest in the region, even higher than Nainital. It was a spontaneous plan to spend some quality time with my friends and unwind ourselves, so we left our phones back hostel, took off for a memorable journey.
It took us around seven hours to reach our destination from Jalandhar, taking a few breaks in between at highway dhabas (food stalls) which offer delicious food at affordable rates. We didn't stop anywhere except for our meals.

Travelling through the Greenery Mountains has always been my desire - tempted with a view of the fresh mountains and blue skies. Driving was also a better option but we took the bus.
We reached in the evening and without any hotel booking. We were searching for the government guest house which is a valuable property located right on the hilltop with valley view, but couldn’t get a room. Fortunately, there are thousands of hotel options, with rooms ranging from Rs.600 -5000 and we finally arrived at Hotel Springfield, 2km away from the Shimla bus stand. 
 We took five hours of rest and we departed for the popular mall road of Shimla. The inordinate charm and sightseeing from mall road are beyond the vision. Then we headed for the Jakhoo temple which is mainly to worship our God Hanuman. It is situated at the top of the hills exactly seven kilometres from mall road. I was tired of climbing. Finally, after 2 hours we reached our destination but we were so thirsty. We took a little break for the drinks and rest.


At last, we went back to our hotel as we had train at night from Kalka station. It was a delightful adventure which gave us the attention towards the splendour and heritage of India. It also gave us the faith to travel in between the mountains and changed the philosophy that it is not hazardous to travel in hills as it was our first journey to a hill station.
