A large number of tourists visit Morocco every year. Morocco is among the most beautiful countries in the world for this primary reason. But if you are a woman, we suggest you consider some essential tips before planning your trip to Morocco. In this article, we've put together a few tips that will help you set some realistic expectations before the big day. Read on to know more.

1. Dress up properly

First, you need to wear the right clothes. If you are a man, you don't need to worry about your clothes. However, if you are a woman, you should dress conservatively. If you want to avoid unwanted attention, you'll want to cover up as much as possible.

Some women may even be harassed when accompanied by a group of men. Also, if you want to visit the mosque, we recommend that you cover up to your ankles. 

2. Carry lots of local currency notes

In big stores you can buy with your credit card. However, you will need to pay in local currency at most street vendors and small markets. Therefore, we recommend you to exchange at least 100 euros per day to be safe.

3. Don't trust ATMs

If possible, you may want to exchange substantial funds. The good news is that you can change your money at the front desk of your hotel. The problem with local ATMs is that they run out of money quickly. If you think you can use traveler's checks, think again. Cashing your traveler's checks in Morocco will be challenging for you

4. Don't ask for change

In Morocco, cab drivers do not tip in most cases. So, if you don't want to be cheated, we suggest you keep some coins in your pocket. The problem with currencies is that you cannot exchange them when you leave Morocco. So you may have to spend coins to survive.

5. Improve your bargaining skills

You should learn to bargain, especially if you are going to shop in the big markets. In other words, if you want to pay the right price for something in Morocco, you need to hone your bargaining skills. In fact, selling is like the national sport of Morocco and haggling is part of their culture.

To be safe, you should pay 25 to 50% less than the asking price. Therefore, you may want to set your budget before messing with the seller. If they can't agree on a price, you should walk away. Most vendors will call you as soon as you walk in.

In short, you might want to keep these five pointers in mind the next time you visit Morocco. Hopefully, these tips will help you make the most of your trip and save a lot of money.

Three famous historical places to visit in Sakleshpur

Sakleshpur is a picturesque hill station in the Western Ghats and is a revitalized route. The city is located on the green and is effectively open and is located in the Hassan region, where the main crops of coffee and cardamom are grown.

In Sakleshpur you will find amazing facilities like hilltops, greenery, bird watching, accommodation facilities like you can get budget homestays in Sakleshpur. Historical places always attract many tourists. So, take a look at the three most prominent historical places that everyone must visit.

Bettada Bhairaveshwar Temple

This temple is located at a very high altitude and inside you feel like an A/C room. The temple is placed at a very important location where it is surrounded by hills. A stage is built around the temple so that people can circumambulate the temple. It is fully developed by stone with minarets and crowns (urns). You can also see in the picture how the rain water outlets are provided above the temple. On the right are some plastic pipes that have probably been put in recently, but on the left, you can see the stone-lined rainwater outlet.

Located in the middle of the Western Ghats, Bettada Bhairaveshwar Temple is situated in a beautiful location surrounded by vast greenery. Nature lovers will find peace and tranquility in this place. Varshika Abhishek is held once a year in the month of January, where devotees from all over come here to seek the blessings of Bhairava.

Prasanna Rameshwar Temple, Devarunda

Devotees from different parts of India come to visit. Devarunda (resident deity), otherwise known as Dakshin Kashi, is a temple complex where Viravadreshwar, Rameshwar, Baireshwar, Parvati, Ganapati, Channakeshwar, and others are worshiped among Hindus.

Devarunda otherwise means "Devaru Ida Jaga" (Abode of the Gods), as brought to Kannada. This temple is believed to be more than 500 years old. Here one can worship, take pictures as well as admire the heavens. Prasanna Rameshwar Temple is a very old temple from inside and the exterior of the building complex has been renovated to capture the splendor of this heavenly place.

Sakleshwara temple

The Sakleswara temple is a fine example of fine detailing as well as craftsmanship that is characteristic of Hoysala design. This temple is smaller than the typical temples of South India. Developed between the 11th and 14th centuries AD, the temple gives the destination its name. The temple dates back to when the Hoysala Empire was at its peak. Located at the entrance of the city, the temple is a remnant of the Hoysala Empire that ruled the region between the 11th and 14th centuries.

Located on the banks of Hemvati River, Sakleshwar Shiva Temple is one of the most beautiful temples in India. This temple is worth visiting as some of the main attractions of Sakleshpur can be found here. A golden mask protects the Shiva linga here, a huge Shiva idol stands atop the temple and easy access to the Hemvati river makes this visit an extraordinary one.

In conclusion

If you are a big devotee and have a strong craze for visiting historical places then this trip is for you. Also, before you go here, don't forget to book a nice Sakleshpur homestay that caters to your needs and comfort.

Wildlife hotspots
Mukutminpur 12

1. Mukutmanipur

Mukutminpur is well known for its high diversity of waterfowl and grassland birds, but there is a small area where you can spot deer. The area is fenced and home to hundreds of deer. The area is so diverse that the government has declared it a conservation reserve. Whenever you go, come back by 6.30 pm. After 6:30 pm there was a problem with the boat. The whole nature is covered in morning and evening. Mukutminpur is number one only in terms of birds. More than five thousand winter migrants visit this vast body of water every year. They usually arrive in late November and last until the last week of February. Winter migrants include large flocks of lesser whistling teal, red-crested pochard, gadwall, common coot, various terns, swallows, wagtails, etc. You can also spot darters, spot-billed ducks, grebes and the main attraction – the rufous-tailed lark. Recently many types of bunting have also been found from Mukutminpur.

2. Ranibandh - Sutan's Twelve Mile Forest

Here comes solitude. The vast, over 50 sq km forest will offer you pure silence. Keep your shoes off on the main blacktop road for raw nature with wildlife. There are many closed roads that are accessible to motorcycles and even cars. Enter any of them and if you're lucky, you'll see a peacock dancing in the middle of the red cobblestone streets.

Here nature hides everything. You have to wait and this vast unsettlingly diverse forest slowly reveals itself. You may encounter an Indian wolf or deer or suddenly find a large field of "babui" grass in the middle of a dense forest. You can roam freely in the forest without any fear, as the entire area is out of the way of elephant migration and for this "Mayurjharna Elephant Reserve" is a dead project these days. Roam freely, see palash, wild flowers including orchids, malkoha, feel the flutter of pitta's wings and share your rare discoveries with us.

Susania d

3. Susunya

Susunya is at the top because of its wildlife availability. Even a novice nature lover can see a variety of birds, butterflies and a significant number of other small animals and plants. Wildlife highlights include rock agama, various owls, thrushes, Indian pitta, paradise flycatcher, various bee-eaters, black eagle, Munia etc. Rocky shoal forests and grasslands are also home to a variety of small mammals. If you want to see a lot of wildlife in a short period of time, Susunya will not disappoint you.


4. Bankruptcy

It is a small dam built on the river Silavati. This small spot is well known in the bird watching community for its incredible winter bird diversity. We won't go into detail, you'll have to come see its feathered wonder. This area falls on the way from Bankura to Mukutmanipur.

Jaipur One 1

5. Jaipur Forest

It is the best wildlife sanctuary in the entire western region of West Bengal in terms of wildlife availability, solitude and diversity, but due to the large presence of resident and migratory elephants, it ranks fifth on our list. If you want to visit nature and do wildlife photography, please visit forest department first or call them for elephant location and then arrange your trip. Don't walk through the woods. Even from the car you may see a herd of deer crossing the road, a herd of elephants slowly passing or the rare black francolin or crested bunting calling. Enjoy dense sal forest, interact with local people, stay safe. All these words are not for ordinary tourists but only for wildlife lovers. We cannot tell a common tourist that you see lots of deer crossing the road.


6. Gangdua

It is a small dam built on the Sali river. Small but beautiful in the background of Susunya. If you want a sunset to remember till you die, we recommend this spot of the Red Sun with sunken boats in the foreground and the Susunya Hills in the background. The region is home to a number of notable wildlife such as weavers, baboons, pipits, wagtails, ibis etc. After sunset you can see and hear nightjars.

Biharinath D

7. Biharinath

This is the Araku Valley of West Bengal, which in our opinion is a forgotten tourist destination waiting for your exploration. Sparfowl have recently been found in this dense forest. There is a narrow path through the mountains. We recommend following the trail up to the main Biharinath hill and roaming freely through the smaller hills in the vicinity. The common bubbler is seriously common here. There are life of many rare butterflies like nawab, king etc. and predator life like wolf, hyena etc. Do not travel in peak summer. For nature enthusiasts it is perfect to spend two days one night. We recommend visiting during winters or after monsoon.

Oh, almost forgot to say, look for the painted grasshoppers, there are several near the main pond.

culture and tradition

The soul of Bankura lies hidden in its rural areas. Most of the villagers are farmers and others work as carpenters, potters etc. Bankura has international fame for the "Bankura Ghora" – a terracotta modeled horse and Dashavatara playing cards (historical figures). Bankura Agriculture is famous for large production of 'Mango' and 'Sarisha'.

Tribes like Santals, Bhumijs (Sardars) and Mundas live in the Mukutminpur area. The people belong to the Proto-Australoid ethnic group. They take rice as their staple food. Charpa Pitha is a special dish, made with rice flour and minced meat; They steam the shawl leaves and eat them. Tribals are very fond of dancing and singing. Women in white sarees with red borders use vibrant garlands as ornaments while dancing various dance forms like Pata, Dasai, Ranpa, Karam, Raibeshe, Jhumur etc. Male participants wear traditional white dhoti and turban. They play instruments like Dhamsa, Kendra and Madal.

Tribal Dance 1 Kirtan 2 Dance Form Dance Form

A large part of Bankura is associated with artefacts such as dokra and terracotta. People also rely on handicrafts made of bell metal, conch shell and sandstone. You will find skilled weavers working in the apparel industry famous for Baluchari, silk and loom sarees.

Here the freshness of the festival comes from winter. Chile welcomes with great enthusiasm the 'Muktamanipur Folk Culture Fair' in January. Folk songs, dances, cultural programs and a variety of local art works will surely blow your mind. Savor the aroma of a tribal fair and live in a different culture for a while.

The last day of Tusu 'Paush' is a famous harvest festival by the local people of Mukutminpur. During winters (January-February), witness a ritual dedicated to the 'folk goddess, Tusu'. Worshipers pray to the goddess for immense wealth and happiness in their family. The lyrics of the folk songs associated with this festival are quite different and you are going to love the tunes of 'Santhal' and 'Kurmi'.

Don't miss the 'cock fight' organized by the villagers during the Tusu festival.

Since the last day of Pausha is called Makar Sankranti, people of 'Santhal' community celebrate 'Makar Parva' during this period. People enjoy their festival days with meat, rice and poultry. Home made drink called 'Hanriya' and dancing to the beats of Dhamsa Madal add extra charm to their festival.

The Karam festival is celebrated on 'Bhadra Ekadashi' and is mainly organized for the best practices and enjoyment of children. During this festival a branch of Karam tree is severed from the tree and unmarried girls worship the branch.

Bandana (Saharai) is another popular tribal festival celebrated on the holy day of Kartik Amavasya in November. The villagers give great importance to their pets as well as animals and they mainly worship them. People wash their cows and bulls, feed them well, decorate them with ornaments and natural colours. They sing 'Ohira' to acknowledge the contribution of animals in their lives. Celebrating the Saharai festival, the Santhals express their gratitude to 'Maa Bhagwati' for the golden-yellow paddy fields.

Jhumar is a tribal dance which is performed in the field. The women participating in the dance move their arms, legs and heads back and forth in a rhythm, holding each other's waist. The male participants wear traditional costumes and play flutes, drums and percussion instruments to keep the dance going.

Chou dance is one of the famous dances of this region. Male dancers from the local community wear different masks and dance at night in an open space called 'Akhada'. Folk songs, dhol, dhol, shehnai, dhamsa and kharka are the instruments played during chau. Scenes from Ramayana, Mahabharata and other local legends are presented in this dance form.
