Tip Of The Day

Travel-Hire a bike if you want to enjoy the beauty to the fullest. Normally, they don’t provide bikes to indians(Don’t know why !!?) But you can arrange via third parties. And for non-indians, bikes can be hired through your passport.

Food- Be Alert of BEEFS !!!

Hi ! I'm Alok, from the so-called holiest place on this earth- the Jagannathdham , Puri, Odisha, India. Though there is little holiness in me :P After the graduation from National Institute of Technology, Rourkela in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering, I joined at one of the Leading Stainless manufacturing companies as Associate Manager.Then I went on to pursue MBA in Business Management at XIMB. I love to travel, to explore new destinations, taking the path less traveled by. I'm more of a backpack traveler and have completed four high altitude treks so far. I'm fond of Landscape Photography. I love adventure. It is like that layer of yummy cream on the piece of cake called Life ! This is a platform to share all those special memories, ideas, clicks with you all. Join me in the journey.... Keep traveling, Keep living. *Contact: info@tektriphy.com Or tektriphy@gmail.com
