फुफाटा

     कधीपासून बबन्या फुफाट्याकडं नीस्ता एकुलग्यावानी पघत बसला व्हता. दोन घटका व्हून गेल्या, पर ह्यो काय बुडाखालचा दगुड सोडाया तयार न्हायी. ऐन पानकाळ्यात फुफाट्यासगट वावटळी धुडगूस घालत्याल तर जीवाला घोर लागून ऱ्हायचाच.      वरीसभरापासूनचा काळ नदरं म्होरून घसारला. तसा गाव कधीबी दुष्काळाचा बाधी न्हवता, तीन वरसापासून व्हत्याचं न्हवतं झालं. एक पीक हाताला घावलं नाय. मागल्या पानकाळ्यात तांबटाचा फड लय रग

Cycling along the river Rhine - Part 2 - A missed train and the beginnings of a great journey

Cycling along the river Rhine - Part 2 - A missed train and the beginnings of a great journey

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

I was looking forward to cycling in the Rhine valley. I chose a Sunday in the month of August (after making sure that there was a high probability of sunlight throughout the day) to visit the Rhine valley. At the time, I used to reside in the city of Heidelberg. Bingen was a city located around 100 kilometers from Heidelberg but there was no direct train in the morning to take me there. Hence, I

जाग आली तेव्हा पावणे अकरा वाजले होते. विमानप्रवासाचा ताण आणि दोन तासांनी पुढे सरकलेले घड्याळ यांची छान युती जमली होती. आन्हिकं आवरून आज काय पहायचे आहे याचा विचार करू लागलो. सहज खिडकी उघडली आणि समोरच्या दृश्याने स्तब्धच झालो. अम्मान शहरातील सुप्रसिद्ध रोमन थिएटर समोरच दिसत होते. याच ‘व्यू’ साठी मी ते हॉटेल निवडले होते. पण हॉटेलच्या अंतर्गत सुविधांनी एकदमच भ्रमनिरास झाला होता. असो. मी लगेचच रोमन थि

After a short while, I reached the village of Sankt Goar. Close to the village was a jetty. A ferry boat was making trips to and fro across the river banks. Vehicles were allowed aboard the ferry. For a nominal price of €2.50, I reached the opposite bank. This village is well-known for the legend of Lorelei. There is a stone hill located close to the village. According to the legend, a beautiful

जॉर्डनच्या भूमीला समृद्ध असा इतिहास लाभला आहे. या देशाला जॉर्डन हे नाव जॉर्डन नदीवरून पडले. जॉर्डनच्या वायव्य सीमेवरील गॅलिली समुद्रातून उगम पावणारी ही नदी दक्षिणेकडे वाहत मृत समुद्राला मिळते. प्रागैतिहासिक काळापासून या नदीच्या खोऱ्यात मानवी संस्कृती नांदत होती. आज ही नदी इस्रायल आणि जॉर्डन मधली सीमारेषा आहे. ईसवी सन पूर्व तिसऱ्या शतकात या प्रदेशात नबातिअन टोळ्यांचे राज्य होते. पेट्रा ही त्यांची

हिमालयातले गिरीभ्रमण म्हणजे एक व्यसनच. एकदा का त्याची चटक लागली की किमान वर्षातून एकदा हिमालयाशी गळाभेट झाल्याशिवाय रहावत नाही. मुंबईतला असह्य उन्हाळा (खरे तर घामाळा!) सुरु झाला की हिमालयातल्या थंडगार जागांचे वेध लागतात. त्याच सुमारास हिमालयातले बर्फ वितळू लागते आणि ट्रेक्स सुरु होतात. एव्हाना हिमाचल प्रदेशातले दोन ट्रेक झाले होते. उत्तराखंड मधील हिमालय अजून पाहिला नव्हता. उत्तराखंड मधील रूपकुंड,

This was my last day in Tenerife. Next day, I was to board a return flight at about 6 in the morning. Hence, I had decided not to tire myself out, to limit myself to local sightseeing in and around the hostel and to do a bit of shopping. Incidentally, one of the lads staying in the hostel too had similar plans. So we decided that we would venture out together and take a look around the city of La

वेळास कासव महोत्सव Velas Turtle Festival

वेळास कासव महोत्सव Velas Turtle Festival

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

कासव म्हटलं की लहानपणी ऐकलेली ससा-कासवाच्या शर्यतीची गोष्ट आणि काही बडबडगीतं याच्यापलीकडे आपल्या डोळ्यांपुढे फारसं काही येत नाही. त्यात कासव महोत्सव म्हटल्यावर कासवांचे फिरते प्राणीसंग्रहालय असावे अशी जर आपली समजूत झाली असेल तर त्यात आपला काहीच दोष नाही. मीही मोठ्या औत्सुक्याने फेसबुकवरची ती पोस्ट वाचत होतो. हा कासव महोत्सव म्हणजे कोकणातील अनेक किनाऱ्यांवर अंडी घालायला येणाऱ्या सागरी कासवांचा संव

जॉर्डनच्या वाळवंटात - भाग ७ - मंगळभूमी वादी रम

जॉर्डनच्या वाळवंटात - भाग ७ - मंगळभूमी वादी रम

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

पेट्राच्या अद्भुतनगरीचा अनुभव घेतल्यानंतर माझ्या जॉर्डनच्या सहलीचा पुढचा आणि शेवटचा टप्पा होता वादी रम. पेट्राच्या दक्षिणेकडे असलेले, लाल-पिवळ्या वालुकाश्माच्या डोंगरांसाठी प्रसिद्ध असलेले वाळवंट म्हणजे वादी रम. ‘डेझर्ट कॅम्पिंग’ साठी ही जागा प्रसिद्ध आहे. इथल्या एका कॅम्प मध्ये मी डेझर्ट सफारी आणि एका रात्रीच्या मुक्कामाचे आरक्षण केले होते. मुथूचा त्या दिवसाचा ठरलेला असा काही कार्यक्रम नव्हता. त

अविस्मरणीय रूपकुंड - भाग ६ - हुकलेले कुंडदर्शन

अविस्मरणीय रूपकुंड - भाग ६ - हुकलेले कुंडदर्शन

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

काळू विनायकाच्या शेजारील हॉटेलातून बाहेर पडलो तेव्हा गारपीट नुकतीच थांबली होती. गारांचा वर्षाव करणारा तो काळाकुट्ट ढग आता दरीच्या दिशेने पांगला होता. त्या आलेदार चहाने थोडीफार हुशारी वाटत होती. डोकं ठणकत होतंच. पण भग्वबासाचा कॅम्प समोरच दिसत होता. त्यामुळे सगळ्या शरीराच्या अपेष्टांकडे दुर्लक्ष करून मी पुढे चाललो होतो. वाट तर सपाटच होती. पण संपूर्ण वाटेवर गारांचा खच पडला होता. त्यामुळे वाट फारच नि

बर्फाळलेले आईसलँड - भाग १ - तोंडओळख

बर्फाळलेले आईसलँड - भाग १ - तोंडओळख

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

आईसलँड म्हटले की डोळ्यासमोर येतो बर्फाने भरलेला वस्तीर्ण, वैराण प्रदेश. कधीतरी Man Vs Wild या कार्यक्रमात इथल्या रौद्र निसर्गाची ओळख झालेली असते. जगातल्या कोणत्याही भागाचे तसेही अतिरंजित चित्रीकरण करणारा हा कार्यक्रम आईसलँडसारख्या देशाला तर निसर्गाच्या रौद्रतेची कमाल मर्यादा असे घोषितच करून टाकतो. एरवी जगातल्या विविध घडामोडींत कुठे नावही न दिसणारा हा देश अचानक एखाद्या ज्वालामुखीच्य

अविस्मरणीय रूपकुंड - भाग ७ - शेवटचा दिस गोड व्हावा!

By vihang8846 on from panthastha-awayfarer.blogspot.com

पाथार नचुनीच्या कॅम्प साईटवरची ती पहाट जरा आळसावलेलीच होती. गेल्या दोन दिवसांतल्या तंगडतोडीने थकलेल्या गात्रांना आता घरची ओढ लागली होती. काश teleportation शक्य असते. पण रूपकुंड काही इतक्या सहजासहजी घरी पोहोचू देणार नव्हते. ज्या वाटेने चढायला तीन दिवस लागले होते ती वाट आज एका दिवसात उतरून जायची होती. एकूण अंतर होते १७ किमी! पण वाट उताराची होती. शिवाय ऑक्सिजनचे प्रमाण वाढत जाणार होते. त्यामुळे अंतर

प्रकाश-शलाखा- भंडारदर्‍याचा काजवा मोहोत्सव

प्रकाश-शलाखा- भंडारदर्‍याचा काजवा मोहोत्सव

By raan_kida on from ran-kida.blogspot.com

वैशाख वणवा आपल्या अस्तित्वाचा दाखला पाना-फुलांवर, दगड धोंड्यांवर, पाला पाचोळ्यावर इतकेच काय तर गुरा-वासरांसहीत माणसाच्या चेहर्‍यावरही देत असतो. निसर्गाच्या प्रत्तेक घटकाला माहीत असतं, रात्री नंतर दिवस उजाडणारच आहे, फक्त रात्रीचा अंधार जायची वाट पहायची आहे. आपली सहनशीलता उजाडेपर्यंत शाबूत ठेवायची आहे. वैशाख वणव्यानंतरच जेष्ठातल्या पावसाळ्याचे आगमन होणार, त्यासाठी सृष्टी झपाटल्यासारखी पावसाची वाट प
