Photobus in March : Hola Mohalla 21-24th March
Hola Mahalla is an important Indian Sikh festival held in Anandpur Sahib in Punjab which follows Hindu festival of Holi. Unlike festival of Holi, when people playfully throw colored powders on each other, Hola Mahalla is an occasion for the Sikhs to demonstrate their martial skills. Sikhs gather here in large numbers to witness a very impressive and colourful procession of Nihangs, in their traditional attire displaying their skill in the use of arms, horse riding, and other war-like sports. The fair is also known for community service as langars (voluntary community kitchens) are held by the locals for serving traditional cuisine to visitors to this festival.
Ladakh in winters
DPC presents #lifegoals with DPC next trip in the month of Mar 2019. Enough time to plan in advance.
Winter in Ladakh is one of the harshest in India and temperatures can fall upto -35 degree Celsius at night. For the adventurous soul, this is the best time to visit Ladakh, as you not only get to experience near arctic temperatures, but also explore it at a time, when even quite a few Ladakhis leave Ladakh for better employment opportunities and warmer climate and there are only handful of tourists around.
