Misty fog, the hide and seek of sun with clouds, lush green trees, the wet brown branches, and birds chirping that is how we picture monsoon. Go anywhere and find out how this season is painted in India and you might find above description to be true. This is the real wonder.
On a fine Sunday Morning, what do you do? Get up late, read newspaper, put your legs across the table chit chat about the week and ongoing current affairs. Oh wait now a days people have become little conscious about their health so either they exercise or go to gym.
Monsoon is here!! Lush green mountains, milky white waterfalls, wet tracks of Sahyadri’s are about to shower its beauty. The vast natural landscape personifies itself in monsoon season. Exhausted and tired from the hot sunny days, monsoon brings pleasure, and drains away all the heat from the body.
Summer’s ending; monsoon is on the cusp of breaking rains. This period of transience is just a delight to trek, where the clouds cover the sky but aren’t showering; an abrupt cool breeze gives you relief. In such weather a night trek to Naneghat was arranged by Small Steps Adventures.
When on a trekking spree, you really don’t care what season it is. I was in office again thinking of what to plan for the weekend; rather Sagar my friend from Small Steps had messaged me for the trek of Bhairavgad. It was a difficult trek and heat in this summer is killing. But still when something calms you down and soothes other things don’t matter, so decision made Bhairavgad trek.
Trekking season is coming to an end, hot sunny days are here. But you don’t want to give it up because you have now fallen in love with the treks. Exploring those twisting, curving and unknown paths have become part of your life.
Harishchandragad a vastly built fort in the Malshej Ghat of Maharashtra is an exotic place. It’s a huge fort with many spots of fascinating attraction and many mythical stories around it. The fort combines myth and reality and is wonder of nature.
So another weekend and another great adventure planned by ‘Small steps adventures’ – A trek from Prabalgad to Irshalgad. Trekking in the mountains of Sahyadris has become a hobby for me now and with great friends from Small Steps I enjoy more and cherish every moment.
It is said that Sahyadri’s of Maharashtra are queer than Himalayan Ranges. When you are in Sahyadri one need to watch every step otherwise you may get lost and end up nowhere far from the place you are supposed to be.
