Beaches in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland

Framed by cerulean blue waters and virgin white sands, Scotland’s offshore Bahamian paradise draws many a comparison with the archipelagos of the Caribbean, only, the Outer Hebrides are congregated 4,200 miles in the opposite direction. Situated off the dramatic North Western shore of mainland Scotland, the Outer Hebrides (or Western Isles) are an oft forgotten extension of ancient Caledonia, despite being conveniently accessible via the time-served Oban ferry and Loganair Airlines. Of the 200-strong island archipelago, a mere thirteen are inhabited, lending credence to the Hebridian nickname – the “Edge of Europe”. Sparsely populated and almost lunar in parts, a getaway to the Outer Hebrides beaches really is an other worldly experience. Continue reading “Beaches in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland” »

Potala Palace: Former home of Dalai Lama

Nestled in the capital of Tibet, the Potala Palace is the historical landmark as well as the greatest monument. The white-shimmering palace soars upon the Marpo Ri hill that is believed to be sacred because of a holy cave where Bodhisattva Chenresi (Avilokiteshvara – bodhisattva of compassion) used to dwell. Further, the name ‘Potala’ comes from Mt. Potala of south India, which is the legendary mountain dwelling of the Bodhisattva. Some 50 years ago, this edifice of 1648 functioned as the main residence of the Dalai Lama. However, after a failed uprising in 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama escaped to Dharamsala in India. Currently, the Potala Palace is now the site of a state museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’ as per Good Morning America (show) and USA Today (newspaper).

Lake Baikal: Pearl of Siberia

Nestled in south-east Siberia, Lake Baikal is a marveling blue freshwater lake that is the deepest on the planet besides being the largest fresh water reservoir. Among the tourists, it is known for its distinct water clarity as well as and diversity of flora and fauna. One more significance is that Lake Baikal is the vital sacred site for the Asians who pray to the lake and have faith in its power. This is evident via its coastal unique carvings as well as sections of the ritual buildings. I would recommend visiting this freshwater pool while you are in a Trans-Siberian train. Rather than sitting in for six days for Moscow, get down at Irkutsk from where it is easy to reach the lake. Continue reading “Lake Baikal: Pearl of Siberia” »
