Travel / Visit / Tour / Leaning against the cloud (Nepal)
« on: August 21, 2013, 10:04:14 AM »
Mountain View:
Pokhara, Nepal  is blessed with stunning panoramic views of the Annapurna range which forms its backdrop. The mesmerizing Machhapuchhre also called Mt. Fishtail dominates the scenery because of its proximity to the valley and can be seen from anywhere in Pokhara. Stretching from east to west, the Annapurna massif includes Annapurna 1 to IV and Annapurna South. Further away are seen the giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Manaslu (8,163m).

Phewa Lake:
Pokhara owes its popularity to the enchanting Phewa Lake, and along its eastern shore has grown the Lakeside or Baidam, a thriving resort town of hotels, restaurants, bars and souvenir shops that allow travelers to relax and enjoy. Phewa Lake is the largest and most beautiful of the three lakes, attracting a large number of visitors who enjoy boating on its placid waters. Boats can be hired, and many visit the island temple of Barahi in the middle of the lake.

Paragliding is perhaps the most rewarding of short duration adventure sports given the fact that there is nothing between you and the scenery unfolding before you. In the distance lie the majestic Himalayas and down below are the villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles, a truly bird’s eye view and a fascinating one at that.

How to go :
VISA is not required if you want to go there by air. Its just port entry. But if it is by road, then the Indian VISA is required. From Dhaka, Bangladesh Biman and United Airways operates flights to Nepal. In each city there are a number of hotels. A good hotel is available in 600 - 2000 BDT. Various foods are also available and they are cheap. You need to spend 1000/ BDT for 4 persons per meal. If you travel with package tour, then they will take all responsibility.

« on: August 20, 2013, 12:26:24 PM »
It is another attraction for the tourists who go to Cox's Bazaar. An island off the coast of Cox's Bazar. Through the center of the island and along the eastern coastline rises, a range of low hills, 300 feet high; but the coast to the west and north is a low-lying treat, fringed by mangrove jungle. In the hills on the coast is built the shrine of Adinath, dedicated to Siva.
Area: 268 square km

Breathtaking Mangrove Forest.
Spectacular Hilly Areas ( around 300 ft. high).
Salt Fields.
Striking Landscapes.
Picturesque & Peaceful Beaches.
Colorful Buddhist Temple & Pagoda.
Battle Leaf.
Simple Island Lifestyle.
Rakhain villages.

You can reach the Moheshkhali by trawler (local motorboat) or by speedboat. By trawler, it is one hour and half an hour journey whereas speedboat takes just half an hour to reach the Island.

By Road:

The Swatch of No-Ground is an underwater canyon located 45 kilometers south of Sundarbans in Bangladesh. This is one of the major marine fishing zones of Bangladesh and recently has been identified as a hotspot for cetacean diversity. For the last 7 years Bangladesh Cetacean Diversity Project (BCDP) of Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), NY has conducted research in that area and recorded at least 4 species of dolphins and 2 species of whale.

Researchers from BCDP have also estimated the population of Irrawaddy dolphin in the coastal waters of Bangladesh to be around 5800. This is the largest population of this threatened coastal dolphin species in the whole world.Many travel tour organizations organizes tour to this areas of Bay-of-Bengal which has been identified by the BCDP research team as hotspots for dolphins and whales and try to search for the animals in the open sea.


Going to the Swatch of No-Ground is very difficult and the trips are recommended to tourists who are seeking adventure. The tour organizers use local wooden fishing trawler for these trips. Before commencing the trips they renovate the trawler and build basic accommodation facilities on the vessel. Please note that the accommodation standard on this boat is very basic and also is shared by all the tourists in any given trip.


Finding dolphins and whales in the open sea is extremely difficult and also depends a lot on luck. It is not ensured sightings of dolphins and whales in every trip. The vessel used for the trips has GPS where all the dolphins and whales sighting data are stored and the GPS is used during the trips to increase the chances of sighting of animals.

Inhabitants of this area:

The high productivity of this area supports large groups of Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus), Pantropical Spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuate), Spinner dolphin (Stenella longirostris), Rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis), Bryde’s whale (Balaenoptera edeni) and False Killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens).

Cricket / Shane Warne (The greatest leg spinner ever)
« on: August 18, 2013, 01:05:04 PM »
Warne brought legspin out from a dusty closet and made it fashionable again. A charismatic, spectacular performer who made as headlines on the field and off it, he finished second-best to Muttiah Muralitharan in the Test wickets stakes, but to many he remains the greatest spinner---


Cricket / Sir Don Bradman (Wonder of Cricket)
« on: August 18, 2013, 12:54:47 PM »
Sir Donald Bradman of Australia was, beyond any argument, the greatest batsman who ever lived and the greatest cricketer of the 20th century. Throughout the 1930s and 40s Bradman was the world's master cricketer, so far ahead of everyone else that comparisons became pointless. In 1930, he scored 974 runs in the series, 309 of them in one amazing day at Headingley, and in seven Test series against England he remained a figure of utter dominance; Australia lost the Ashes only once, in 1932-33, when England were so spooked by Bradman that they devised a system of bowling, Bodyline, that history has damned as brutal and unfair, simply to thwart him. He still averaged 56 in the series. In all, he went to the crease 80 times in Tests, and scored 29 centuries. He needed just four in his last Test innings, at The Oval in 1948, to ensure an average of 100 ­- but was out second ball for 0, a rare moment of human failing that only added to his everlasting appeal.

Travel / Visit / Tour / Mystery of Bermuda Triangle
« on: June 21, 2012, 11:08:48 AM »
So looking for the facts behind the mystery of Bermuda Triangle? More than 1000 ships and planes have disappeared in the triangle area over the past five centuries and continue to do so. And all these happen when apparently there is no human errors, equipment failures or even natural disasters. Strangely, the ships and aircraft just vanish when everything seems to be okay.

So where is Bermuda Triangle located and how large is the area? Is there a map? And do you get to know when exactly you cross the line and enter the area?

the first name that came up was "Miami Triangle". But Florida objected saying that they would lose visitors to Miami with such name as people would fear to come there. So the next name taken up was "Puerto Rico Triangle". Puerto Rico too raised objections. Then it was the turn for the 21 square mile tiny island Bermuda which forms the third corner of the triangle. And no one seems to have bothered. Bermuda was then also known as the "Isle of the Devils" which fitted to the triangle concept quite well and therefore the final name "Bermuda Triangle" was coined.

Lost Planes & Ships in Bermuda Triangle :

Here are some of the most amazing stories of planes and ships that disappeared while crossing the triangle area. As you visit the links, you will also see my findings behind such great mysteries of all times.

Flight 19: The Avenger planes of Flight-19 took off from the U.S Naval Base of Florida for a routine training session, but never returned.

Fight DC-3: The flight DC-3 NC16002 disappeared when it was only 50 miles south of Florida and about to land in Miami.

Flight 441: The flight 441, a Super Constellation Naval Airliner disappeared in October 1954.

C-54 Skymaster: Apparently it seemed to be a sudden thunderstorm that had disintegrated the plane. But there was much more to the story.

Mary Celeste - The Ghost Ship: Known as one of the ghost ships of Bermuda Triangle, Mary Celeste had many misadventures even before her mystery voyage in 1872. Find out the full story.

Marine Sulphur Queen: This 524-foot carrier of molten sulphur started sail on Feb 2, 1963 from Beaumont, Texas with 39 crew. It was reported lost in Florida Straits on February 4.

USS Cyclops: Disappearance of the carrier ship U.S.S. Cyclops in Bermuda Triangle has been one of the greatest mysteries of the sea.

USS Scorpion: USS Scorpion (SSN-589) was a Nuclear powered submarine of United States Navy that disappeared in Bermuda Triangle area in May 1968.

Popular theories solving the mystery :

And there are also theories that took recourse to some supernatural events to explain the disappearances. Check out Supernatural Theories to know about them.
