Welcome to the 6th episode of Season 3 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. Hot water springs are a fascinating natural phenomenon that you should definitely include in your travel plans. We don’t see them prioritized very often in trip schedules, and when people come across some of them, they’re always pleasantly surprised. Indeed, there are quite a few hot springs in India, and many are mineral rich, therapeutic and rejuvenating. Often present in otherwise freezing locales, they provide a welcome respite from the cold, and many also have healing properties. How exactly are hot springs formed? Rain seeps into the ground to form underground pools. When this groundwater is heated by magma and the surrounding rocks, it rises up to the surface. This geothermally heated ground water forms a hot spring. There are many such hot springs in India, so let’s learn more! Famous Hot Springs in India That Are Worth a Visit Many hot springs around the country, are, luckily, the right temperature for soaking into a luxurious bath. However, do note that some hot springs may have very high temperatures and as such it is advisable to do your research and be careful while visiting hot springs. In this episode, we talk more about the following hot springs in India.  Tattapani, Himachal Pradesh Manikaran Sahib, Himachal Pradesh Panamik, Nubra Valley Kheer Ganga, Himachal Pradesh Read the original post about 4 Famous Hot Springs In India Which You Must Experience (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/4-famous-hot-springs-in-india-which-you-must-add-to-your-list/) Our mobile app is now on Android and iOS!

Welcome to the 5th episode of Season 3 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik. Travelers have changed a lot over the years. It is no longer just about visiting places that are famous and well-known. They want to visit new and offbeat destinations while understanding their culture. There is only so much that Google can help you with researching about a particular place. If you wish to truly enjoy a holiday, you have to experience the local essence of your chosen destination and who can give you better information of the place than the local guides themselves. At Scout my Trip, we love our Scouts and the wonderful experiences they bring to our community of travelers. All our Scouts are virtual travel guides who help you plan your trip and bring a personal touch with their recommendations of things to do in a new place. Since they know their areas inside out, you get suggestions that are off the beaten path – things only locals would know. All those things make your overall experience so much better than trying to figure out where to go by checking online. So why do you need a Scout? A curated experience that blows your mind. Ideas, suggestions and advice that make your trip so much more memorable (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/7-road-trip-planning-must-haves/) . Unique plans based on your needs and wants and interests.

The "Hornbill Festival" finds its name after the colorful and large forest bird, the “Indian hornbill’. The bird is a symbol of ‘respect’ and ‘folklore’ for residents of Nagaland. Nagaland is also known as the ‘Land of Festivals (https://scoutmytrip.com/blog/top-12-festivals-in-the-month-of-january/) ’ and hence, the Hornbill festival was initiated by the State Tourism of Arts and Cultural Department, to promote their cultural heritage and showcase their tribal culture.

Welcome to the 3rd episode of Season 2 of the Mark and Embark Podcast by ScoutMyTrip. The host for this episode is Myra Naik.   A road trip is just not about arriving at the destination. Neither just about having a good time on four wheels. It is an opportunity to break free from your mundane routine. It is a chance to explore the unexplored. Those carefree days speeding on highways or dirt roads clear your head. Driving has a therapeutic effect and gives you that chance to introspect. Sometimes a road trip may not even end as you had planned. But if you can reflect back on those memories with a smile on your face and a silent tear in your eye, then it was all worth it. If nothing else, a road trip most definitely teaches you some life lessons that no form of formal education will ever teach you. In this episode Myra talks about 7 life lessons only road trips can teach you.
