Genetics, eating habits, sedentary lifestyle, poor quality air, water and food. A huge number of predominantly urban Indian children are overweight going on obese. Is this the new generation of children we parents would like to rear?Leave a Comment
The Northern slopes of Landour are blessed with immense biodiversity and hundreds of Buransh trees. If you’re lucky like I am to walk the Kolti trail during the blooming season i.e. March and April you will be walking on a red carpet made up of buransh petals.
This is a child-friendly trail and there are no drops or tricky sections. Yet, the trail is relentless and steep with an average grade of 17.9% and this will test your legs if you’re not used to walking.3 Comments
Mossy fall is a natural waterfall followed by a few manmade drops near Barlowganj (Mussoorie). There are many routes that can get you from Landour to Barlowganj. The route that we post here, is not the shortest but we belive it’s the most scenic.One Comment

A 7 kilometre day trek that links Gallu temple with Guna Devi temple. The trail is easy and child friendly. It passes through Naddi town which has some beautiful viewpoints and through Bhated stream which is an excellent place for a picnic.7 Comments
Are there places other than Triund with an equally good or perhaps a better view over Mcleodganj?
We find two places that we reckon have an equally good or better view. The first of these viewpoints is the roofless Durga temple and Tibetian prayer site a few hundred metres from Gallu temple.
If you find Triund to be loud and boisterous this summer, we recommend taking a quiet trek to Waterfall Cafe. The Waterfall Cafe trek is a 2.5-kilometre / 1-hour easy trek with a waterfall and a tea shop at its terminus. You may extend the length and difficulty of this trek by following the waterfall rivulet, upstream.2 Comments
No road link, a secluded village, beautiful vista and a less often used trail makes trekking to Irshalgad feel like rediscovering a long lost civilisation. Irshalgad is an oft ignored pinnacle located on a plateau that towers over Chowk town on the Panvel – Karjat National Highway NH4. The 3.4 kilometre, 2 hour trek to Irshalgad is an easy, child friendly trail. Nevertheless, this easy trail enchants with some magnificent views over Morbe reservoir, Prabalgad and Matheran plateaus. We rate this as the most beautiful yet easy treks in and around Karjat.2 Comments
