Reasons to go to Nasik

1Experience A Megamix Of Great Music, Wine, Drinks And Food
Experience A Megamix Of Great Music, Wine, Drinks And Food

Set amidst the spectacular Sula Vineyards of Nasik, it has been growing from strength to strength. Music, wine and serious leisure is the motto of this festival. India’s Gourmet World Music Festival which has grown  from 1,500 people in 2010 to 3,800 to 4,000 people in 2011 promises to be even bigger and better this year. Last year’s event witnessed an unreal turnup of 12,000 festgoers who were blown out of their freaking mind over the great food, music and the genera chilled out vibes in the  idyllic environs of the winery's beautiful open-air, Greek-Style amphitheater.

It is one of those few festivals in the country that boasts of an incredible lineup of activities like grape stomping, wine tasting, foot massage and tattooing. Sulafest delights people not just by serving wine but it happily intoxicates wine lovers with irresistible performers who play rock, folk, blues, electronic and reggae music. The line-up of the artists performing at this year’s event include The Cat Empire, Kailasa, Edu Imbernon, Balkan Beat Box, Success, Rik Watts, and some of the most popular reggae and DJ from India and abroad.

HolidayIQ traveller Ayush Paul from Mumbai shares, “Getting to Sula Vineyards isn't a struggle really and that becomes an extreme delight when you get to Sula. The experience begins even before you have really parked your car, the road -rather the avenue lined with grapevines, give a royal welcome into the experience. But one word of advice, get there before anyone else does - and wait it out till sunset. If you can somehow get all the car groups to give Sula a skip - you will find awesome music playing at the balcony restaurant. Some say, the best time to visit is during the Sulafest. But I think some quite won't do you bad either. Whatever you do, Do not forget to sip down some red over the sun set. This one is not for the bucket listers and point hoppers.”

This will surely excite you! A bubbly vacation amidst vineyards.

HoldiayIQ Traveller Edgar Dsouza shares, “Everyone was excited about the beautiful scenery beholding the vineyard. Set against the rolling green plains around Nasik, a sort of Napa Valley in western India, we approached the Sula Vineyards, one of India’s largest wine producing wide varieties of whites, reds, roses and dessert wines to offer the wine lovers. The Sula vineyard was not as large as I expected it to be (only 35 acres), but it turned out that they had around 350 acres located somewhere else too.”

The wine capital of India, Nasik is also a great place for a religious tour. According to the legends, Sri Rama with his brother Lakshman and wife Sita spent 14 years of their exile at Tapovan near Nasik. Lord Lakshman slashed off the nose of Surpanakha here and therefore this place is named as Nasik which means nose.

Tejas shares on HolidayIQ, "In Nasik there are many places you can enjoy with your family such as Falke Smarak, Pandavleni, Someshvar, Trimbakeshavar, Anjaneri, Chamar leni, Nehru van-udyan, Ramkund, Tapovan, Panchavati," among others.

This is one of the best drives because of ever-changing landscapes that you encounter at every stop. From the towers of concrete to the relatively open greens with trees lined till the highway and before you realize it, the landscape changes to grassy meadows. Nashik arrives in style with lush green grasslands, undulating hills, and herds of cows and sheep grazing.

“The route by road from Mumbai to Nasik is very scenic after one leaves the Kalyan/Bhiwandi area. The road is quite good and there are several places one can stop by on the way for tea/snacks/washroom. The ghat section after Kasara and up to Igatpuri is particularly good.” shares HolidayIQ traveller Suresh Ramaswamy.

Explorable and awesome Nasik

Nasik is very worth visiting . Known for its grapes, the city has much to explore . Renuka mata temple is one place where peace and serenity is obtained . We travelled in a bus, the journey is quite long of around 11 hours, those who are not comfortable with long journeys need to take care . We resided near Tapi river. The place is very scenic and blissful . We got a feel of nature while relaxing on the banks of the river. Cooking in those village surrounding gave immense pleasure Indeed awesome place to visit
