We couldn’t go to many places in New Delhi since only had 3 hours before airport time. India Gate is the right place for us that time although in super hot afternoon. India Gate is a national monument to commemorate 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I.

Find a small city with temple, full with handicraftsmen, full with museums, full with souvenirs, of course with beautiful Tibetan buildings and many Tibetan refugees. You can even pray and meditate and do your yoga pose in Norbulingga Garden. Sipping butter tea at their tea house is possible here. It’s been quite a walk to get there but it’s nothing with the serene of this place. My suggestion even though for their super premium quality and it’s all hand made, most things sell here are expensive. But the entry ticket for Tibetan buildings and garden are only Rs40 -50/foreigners and Rs20/locals … and I got local price for my face :) Continue reading “Norbulingga: The Tibetan Lost City | Norbulingga: Kota Tibet Yang Hilang”
Whatever you take as transportation vehicles in India, let it be your own adventure. I found incredible thing when I was in at Dharamsala such as Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta) (CITES: Appendix II) and Kashmir Grey Langur (Semnopithecus ajax) (IUCN : Endangered) sprawling on the street. You can even see details in every corner of buses or taxi like colourful offerings for gods/goddess and holy man pendant anytime and anywhere.
