So the question is Why Should You Rent?

There are some factors you should consider before deciding to buy or rent things, for example:

1. How often you’re going to use that product in future?

2. In case, if you what to sell the purchased product then what will be the value of the product after few years?

3. In today’s world, technology is changing very rapidly, so if we stick to one product for long then we may miss the latest technologies or features trend. Do you wish to remain up to date with latest trend?

4. Are you comfortable in spending money to own things where at the same time on other hand due to this you have to compromise on budget for other important things just to buy a particular product?

5. Are you spending on products that may lose up to half of its value the moment you purchase it?

6. Do you want to experience or use product before actually buying it and then based on your experiences wanted to go ahead to buy it?

7. You already have a particular product with you but you need multiple products at a same time and buying seems difficult option?

If you think about all these points then surely you will get the answer yourself, whether it’s good to rent or buy a particular thing for you at that particular time. Sometimes, it’s better to buy or sometimes it’s good to rent. Moreover, renting gives you an opportunity to invest your money on things which are for long terms or can give you a better return in near future.

This was just some food for thought from us on whether to rent or buy things depending on needs or situations, and we understand there can be many other points as well which can be added in the list, so feel free time put your thoughts on it in the comment section.

The Scenic – Janjheli Valley

P_20160612_083342_1_p

Bulah (Janjheli Valley)

Janjehli Valley, at a distance of 80 km from Mandi (Himachal, India) is a paradise for hikers, offering treks up to a height of 3,300 metres. Last month, I got an opportunity to travel to this less explored place, the picturesque valley of Janjehli has fewer tourists as compared to other similar popular trekking and camping destination as it’s not that popular yet on tourist map.

Around 6 km from Janjehli is a place called Bulah, I loved the place and mesmerized by its beauty, I stayed there in a camp for a night. For me traveling and spending a day in Janjehli Valley has been an enchanting and fascinating experience. It is a beautiful, tranquil and calm place, the beauty of which is enhanced by its lush green serene surroundings, apple orchards, hills covered with pine and deodar trees, a river flowing through various crisscrossed hills, numerous waterfalls, and breezy and fresh environment all around the valley. The valley adorned by snow during winters, is no less than heaven on the earth. At around 10 Km from Janjheli is a Shikari Devi Temple at a height of 3,332 metres above sea level. From the temple area, it offers a mesmerizing scenic and sunset view which is just soul stirring, the sunset view from here is like one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.

Some more snapshots from my travel to this place:

Incredible Kinnaur – Meet the Mountains

Kinnaur Reckong Peo0

Location: Pooh, Kinnaur Image Credit: Vikas Sharma

Few days back I’ve been to this place called Kinnaur. It has spellbinding scenery with tall mountains which seems like touching the sky with their snow clad peaks shrouded with clouds; the view at every turn had just given me goose bumps. It wouldn’t be false, if someone would say it’s a world within a world, and after spending a week there, I can’t spot myself from writing few words about this place, so here you go:

Kinnaur Reckong Peo13Kinnaur, it consists of very high mountains, deep valleys or gorges, glaciers and rivers; it’s one of the districts of Himachal – India. This tremendously beautiful district have three high mountains ranges: the Zanskar range – present along the northeast and its crest forms the eastern international border of Kinnaur with Tibet, the main Great Himalayan range – runs from northwest to south, and the Dhauladhar range – forms the southern boundary of Kinnaur, merging with the main Himalayan range in southeastern Kinnaur. The highest peaks in Kinnaur are Leo Pargial (6816 meters) and Manirang (6,593 meters). The Kinnaur area of Himachal has been opened to Indian and Foreign tourists since after 1989. While going via Shimla and Rampur – Kalpa, Reckong Peo and Sangla Valley can be visited by Indians and Foreigners without any restrictions. To travel beyond Jangi in Kinnaur to Kaza in Spiti one requires an inner line permit for foreign nationals.

Kinnaur Reckong Peo14It’s a land of fairy tales and fantasies, has a spectacular terrain of lush green valley, orchards, vineyards, snow clad peaks and cold desert mountains. The apples, chilgoza, apricots, pears, grapes, pine nuts and other dry fruits are grown here are world famous, specially the apples, the taste cannot be replicated anywhere else. And about locals, despite bearing deadly winter and living life in tough terrain, you will always find them smiling and content.

Kinnaur Reckong Peo7There are lots of places to visit in Kinnaur, especially for the people who are into trekking, hiking, camping, biking, adventure sports and love to be in the nature. You can find bikers on your way in Kinnaur packed up with camping stuff, and the beautiful trekking route includes the ‘Kinner Kailash’ mountain. The high terrain here provides way to great adventure sports of all kinds, and so for all the adventure lovers, Kinnaur is the place to come at least once despite regarded as one of the most dangerous and toughest roads in the world, the thrill and the fun is just out of the world experience. The landscape is so beautiful, after every few miles there’s a different landscape and some parts being like the moon land, and you would feel like being in a different world.

Kinnaur Reckong Peo10There is a beautiful Nako lake, a beautiful place called Kalpa famous for its apple and chilgoza plantations, which are found only in Iran and Turkey besides here, another place called Banjara which lead you into the time zone untouched by man and time, then Sangla Valley surrounded by snow-clad peaks and beside the gurgling Baspa river, then Batseri village across the banks, which boasts of a beautiful Devta temple made of wood, and then three famous wild life sanctuaries which you won’t find anywhere else in the world as they are unique for their high altitude and the animals they protect, and then the untouched places like Chitkul, Bhaba Valley, Hangrang Valley, Moorang, Pooh, Kaza, etc.

Kinnaur Reckong Peo9I spent my 3 days in Reckong Peo and 2 days in Pooh and all through this place, the view is simply amazing, one side of the road is occupied with a deep gorge made by the river and other side is surrounded by hilly slopes, mountain peaks cover with snow and shrouded by clouds. Whenever you pass through a narrow section of road, the view of Satluj River below can shiver your bones with thrill and excitement.

Kinnaur Reckong Peo4The untouched mountains, unaltered part of this world and the mystical valleys offer solace and comfort, to every weary traveler. Snow covered mountain peaks, apples hanging on the tree branches, sudden waterfalls, hairpin turns and zig-zag roads will be your best friends while traveling in this part of the world. If anyone is looking for place which gives them calmness in their own way, place where tranquility is at its zenith and the place where landscapes and atmosphere becomes your best soother, then Kinnaur is one of the places you need to visit. The journey to Kinnaur will take you into some of the most beautiful places most of us have only heard but never seen; a journey into one of the most beautiful valleys in the country and probably the world.

Here’s few more pictures, though not clicked perfectly but still sharing with you all, and in Kinnaur there are places far more scenic and exhilarating than these images which I tried to capture during my stay in this beautiful place.
