Great response guys ! Its of course the bridge next to Adenau formally called as BreidScheid

Well my ride was a hertz rental, mercedes A 180 CDI Planned it very late in the afternoon. Drove from Stuttgart to Nurburgring starting around 11 am and back by night.

Total driving time of 5 1/2 hrs for a total of 650 kms approx.

Got the bonus of watching the race 2 of WSBK where Haga was knocked off and Rea won.

Unfortunately, it was too late to rent a track car and take a lap around the ring, but had a stroll through the main parking garage of the ring and in Adenau. Watched the cars driven as it should be, at great speeds. Including this van.

Has been overall a great experience.

Thought I would do it as a travelogue, but i got the subject wrong, hence moved to the guess the place thread.

Pic #28: Oh well, the city of the Sonar Kella, and the link that kannan posted - the Bara Bagh, or as the Bong would describe it in English, the twelve tigers!

Okay, hints... This is in the Alps. An interesting cave to visit.

Oops... Alps, not Himalayas! Never been there. Google Uncle says it should be the Werfen Ice caves, in Salzburg, Austria. Correct?

That's very correct SS-T. Visit

EISRIESENWELT WERFEN - Site

and you'll get more info. They say that it is the largest ice cave in the world.

Don't remember the place name but it is in Madhya Pradesh.
Pench or Kanha national park?
Ramkya had posted pic of this statue in his Madhya Pradesh travelogue.

Yep, MP, but not Kanha or Pench. It's a statue of Lord Vishnu.

No, but about 150 km south of it! (Dead giveaway, I suppose).

And I agree, we need to keep track of the picture IDs.
