How To Reach Bayali In Times Of The Pandemic

If you are looking forward to going to Bayali in the times of the pandemic, then don't worry we will help you out. It is just very liberating to be travelling after so many months of lockdown so hold your excitement as your destination is going to be super rewarding. These are the only times when you will find train tickets easily to almost every place, thanks to the pandemic. But while travelling by train, you must be precautious and must follow the social distancing norms and you will be safe, as a lot of people are not travelling these days, so trains are mostly empty.

Take a bath to ensure cleanliness and safety and then have some food and rest for the night.

As Bayali is a comparatively very small place you won’t find a great deal to sign in to with taxi drivers or transportation services. But, in case you have no other option, make sure to pre-book the taxi for transfer from Haridwar to Bayali. Although it will take a few efforts but you will surely find a deal to seal. So, start your day with a healthy and filling breakfast that will charge you to travel for the next 2-3 hours. The drive to Bayali is very intriguing as it takes you through the densest parts of the Rajaji National park which is full of wild animals such as leopards, tigers, elephants, and pythons and a lot more. You may also get to encounter one of these animals on the way up to the hills. The drivers who drive through these roads are extremely trained and used to such happenings and that is why they will also tell you stories of their adventures while you travel with them, which will keep you entertained and interested in the trip.

Finally, when you reach the destination, you realise that all the risk was worth taking for a place as beautiful as this. It is paradise and it feels as if you're standing on a chunk of heaven. And, I had never seen such a mesmerising place myself. After coming back to your senses you can book a stay in one of the few resorts built here. The stays are warm, cosy and comfortable and offer freshly cooked food every time you dine, plus, the meals are affordable. Next, you can go ahead and unpack, don't forget to take your woollens as you will be needing them in the evening. Settle down, have food and rest for some time. Later in the evening, you can enjoy some tea or maybe some snacks and head out on a stroll across the picturesque location. Post dinner, you might want to go check out the night sky or go a little downhill with your group up to the Leopard land, to spot a leopard searching for its prey. No need to panic if you spot one as the leopards and tigers here are scared themselves, and run away to avoid any human interaction.

Don't feel sad if weren't able to spot a leopard in the night as there will a lot of chances for you to spot one on this trip. Instead, if you look at the night sky, you will notice something even more exciting, millions of stars twinkling brightly in the milkyway. For a moment you might feel as if you are in outer space. The entire sky is adorned with innumerable stars and planets and surely a camera or a picture could never do justice to the spectacular scene in Bayali at night.  So, sit down on the porch outside your room and gaze the shining stars, that light up your world every night.
