Everyone's Dream - A Super Yatch

Everyone's Dream - A Super Yatch

There are probably a million ways to spend your hard-earned money. And if you have a large amount to spare, would you not want to do it in style? What you will see now will require both in equal quantity, money and style that is. An Italian designer has come up with this next-level superyacht concept that will make your jaws drop. 

Moving on, so, this superyacht would have its master suite that includes a bar, dining area and an infinity pool perched on a tower, 125 ft above water.

Imagine the unparalleled views the owner would be able to enjoy! This radical concept yacht has been named Sheddai. And if you are a stickler for privacy, this might just be the investment for you.

Designer Gabriel Teruzzi said "From here you can reach the feeling of a higher power, surrounded by the immensity of the sea and sky, reaching the clouds where everything reflects his place in the world: at the top. 

"Furthermore, the infinity pool produces a visual effect of water with no boundary, merging with the sky." Teruzzi added. 

There would be a beach club on the lower deck that will be united with the main deck by an infinity pool with a glass floor.

Mussoorie - Queen Of The Hills

Mussoorie is a hill station and a municipal board in the Dehradun District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is located about 35 km from the state capital of Dehradun and 290 km north from the national capital of New Delhi. From an altitude of more than 6150 ft, views of Doon Valley, the surrounding hills and greenery could be glimpsed from anywhere one stands in Mussoorie. 

Some of the major Tourist attractions are:

Lake Mist - Just 5 Km before reaching Kempty Falls, tourist can get the feel of starting of great times at Lake Mist on Mussoorie holidays.

Happy Valley - One place and many lures- the valley in itself is grandeur to look at, but it also leads to Cloud's End and Hathipaon Park Estate and has Library, IAS Academy, Tibetan Temple and Municipal Garden.

Falls - Various falls are known for accentuating the appeal of Mussourie and some of the well known names are Kempty Falls, Jharipari Falls, Bhatta Falls and Mossy Falls.

Cloud's End - Denoting the geographical end of the Mussoorie the point is becomes a great vantage point for the sights this hill station has to offer.

Lal Tibba - Touted to be the highest point of Mussoorie, the place now has a namesake at a little lower altitude, well known point to picnic.

Things to do:

Feeling of being stationary while the world at an altitude seems to be moving can introduce to an out of the world feeling, especially when done for the first time. Accessing Gun hill from Cable Car is one of the activities that family can do together and give that feel. Those who life some physical activity, trekking excursions and camping are also available from Mussoorie, organized often by adventure companies on this location.

Climate:

Winters are chilling, as is common with any hill station; but something in the setting of sun is not at all common. Purple, yellow, orange, red and mauve spread splendid shades as sun leaves for its night's nap during mid October to January, the phenomenon being called 'Winter Line'.

March to June are months of summers that are cooler by all the standards of heat of plains. Freewheeling in The Mall, taking a trekking trip and more such activities are more appealing during this time. Monsoons from July to September are difficult often causing landslide; hence preferably avoided.

September to June thus remains the best time for traveling Mussoorie for all ages and groups of individuals.
