  1. 3 souls – 3 states – 3 treks – 5 days – 1700 km drive Rain, valley, fog, mountain, waterfall, river and full adventure. Trekker family Note: This is going to be a long travel blog as 3 treks were covered in it. So grab popcorn, fasten your seatbelt and get ready to witness trek. The Plan: Maharashtra is blessed to have the Sahyadri Range, home to many amazing hills, trekking trails & ancient forts. The Sahyadris offers some really great options for not just experienced trekkers, but complete beginners as well. If you are someone who loves hiking in the rain and exploring the outdoors, a day hike in the Sahyadris during the monsoons will be the perfect option to spend the day with friends and family. The rain makes everything look beautiful. There is greenery all around, with clean and fresh air. The vibrant colors of nature, add charm to the beautiful green valleys and hills of the Western ghats of the Deccan Plateau. Monsoon is my favorite time to drive around in Maharashtra, especially the coastal areas and the western ghats. I love the lush green landscapes, the incessant drizzles with an occasional sunshine, and of course the hot vada-pavs and chai Every monsoon, we typically drive to the western ghats of Maharashtra (our latest drive there, done a couple of months ago, read my blog ‘Heaven is myth, Devkund is real’ ). However, it had been a long time since I drove around in the areas near Pune. I have my friends & family in Pune. Therefore, I visit Pune quite frequently. Most of the time I drive from Hyderabad. So this time we decided to explore mulshi area (Tamnhi ghat). I spent my 4 years on engineering in Konkan. Tamnhi ghat is the area which connect Pune & Konkan. Hence this area has special place in my heart. The Car: The Baleno Zeta CVT (2018) is my companion in all my drives. I call it ‘Simba – a lion cub’. Simba never disappoints me. Whether it a highway, city, plain, muddy it drives like charm. Simba in mountains The Camera: - Smartphone Oneplus 9 - DSLR Canon 1300d with 18-55 mm lens Due to rainy season and to carry light, I took only smart phone with me during trek. All photos in this travelogue are taken using my mobile phone camera. Few photos were taken with DSLR. The Drives: We decided to do this trek with us only (myself, spouse & son). These treks were isolated one, hence decided to opt for a guide. We hired Deepak for this trek. He is local guide and knows area in depth. Very supportive and helpful sharing his contact number +919765476941. I recommend his guidance. I have my brother-in-law and my own brother house in Hadpsar & Wagholi area. As it was around 2 hours journey, we decided to start early from home. Hence, we started around 6 am. As there was no traffic we reached our first meeting point by 8 am. We meet Deepak there and had stomach full breakfast as advised by Deepak. Trek 1 to Kundlika Valley: It is very beautiful and mind blowing place. The Valley is created by erosion of the river Kundalika. Location - Near Tahmini Ghat. Distance from Pune - 60-70 km approx. How to Reach - 1. Pune - Mulshi-Tahmini-Nive- right turn to Bhamburde - next to MCKS Ashram. 2. Pune-Lonawla-Bhamburde-to MCKS ashram raod, near Pimpri Dam After driving a bit ahead of Tamhini Ghat, we found this lovely spot where the Simba could reach after driving down a small off-road track in the rain and mud Kundalika valley hold some of the amazing weekend gateways place around Mumbai & Pune Places like Andharban Trek (The Dark Forest), Devkund Water Fall, Kolad Water Rafting, Lohagad Fort, Rajmachi Point, Tamhini Ghat and it's a strange place with two huge mountain walls separated by a narrow valley. The valley is all hidden behind clouds. Clouds plays hide n seeks all the time. First glimpse Meditation in mountains Keep Calm & watch beauty The stunning view ahead after a short walk: Hills and waterfalls on the hills - another characteristic monsoon scene: The lush green fields and the typical refreshing green shade, which are characteristic to this region of Maharashtra in the monsoon months: Could not resist taking photos of such lovely green fields all around: A closer shot of the flowing water, which felt quite mesmerizing and very soothing as we just stood there watching this scene for some time: The simple but scenic rural roads: After Kundalika Valley we headed towards Plus Valley Trek 2 to Plus Valley: Type: Ghats/Valley/Jungle Range: Mulshi Taluka of Pune district Grade: Medium, Endurance level Medium History: Known for ‘+’ shaped valley, Dense Forest and river-source for Kundalika river Base Village: Nearest village from Pune side is Nive Best Time: Exact post monsoon. Avoid it during rain. Trek duration: Time to reach is around 2.5 hours to descend and 2 hours for back climbing Food n Water: Nothing available. Nearby Hotels: at Mulshi-Tahmini ghat, and Lonawla The place is quiet and isolated. So go in groups. Edges of the Valley are very risky, so take care of hyper personalities. Great photographic and scenic location. Ever been wandered into a forest so thick with green trees where the way looks same in all directions? when the actual odyssey is to find a pool hidden deep in a valley, that very few have dared to explore, even better very few have explored without being lost. The passion for exploring combined with the unending energy had finally given off the beauty of the pool that is hidden deep in the lap of nature. The hope of the possibility of finding the pool took us through an exhaustive retracing of 2 hrs. Finally, with the sound of the small water stream flowing took away the effort and exhaustion of the trip, as we followed the stream we found one of the most beautiful pools surrounded by Rocky Mountains in 4 directions. The lovely mountains and the water: We just walked around enjoying the fresh air and such views: In the midway you will find a large ghost tree Intersection point. Partner relaxing in natural swimming pool. Return journey Once on Mulshi Road, we had these views of Mulshi Dam backwaters on the side of the road (this road goes along the edge of the backwaters and you get some great views of the water all along the road): Back water Trek 3 to Andharban – dark forest Well after exhaustive trek 1 & 2. Home minister & leader of opposition (my son, they only rules house) decided to take rest. Plus valley trek was really tough one. I was having a spare day with me. I just requested my engineering friends to have a trek and they agreed to it. So we 3 different teams (total 7 members) started from 3 different corners of pune and decided to meet at first meeting point around 8 am. This time also we took help from Deepak. So as advised by Deepak we took heavy breakfast and headed towards Andharban. Some quick information about the Andharban Trek. Distance from Pune: Around 75 km Start Point: Pimpri Village End Point: Bhira Dam Trek Distance: Approx. 13 km Grade: Moderate Best time to do this trek: June to October The word ‘Andhar’ literally means ‘Darkness’ and ‘Ban’ means ‘Forest’. True to its name, the trail takes you through a dense dark forest. Andharban trek is a hike through a dense forest with thick overgrowth, beautiful views of waterfalls, streams and the Tamhini Ghat along the way. The trek begins at an elevation of 2,160 feet and descends down into the valley, to reach the backwaters of the Bhira Dam where the trek ends. After having breakfast, we reached trek start point around 10:00 am. We had also carried packed snacks as there are no facilities of restaurants or kitchens during the trek. The weather was pleasant and everyone was excited to hit the trail. We followed a trail passing through the paddy fields and soon entered into the forest. The entry inside the forest is based on a permit issued by the ‘Forest Department’. Deepak had local contacts and without any issues we entered into forest. The almost flat trail with occasional ascents took us inside a dense forest with lush green trees all around. Everything looked so fresh and green. The landscape reminded me of scenes from the movie ‘Avatar’. Though it is a defined trail, some parts were tricky to cross because of mud and puddles after the rain. Also, the trail had many small streams flowing down the hills. At some points, we had to use ropes to cross as the flow of the streams was strong. Deepak helped us throughout the way and made sure we negotiate the difficult stretches safely. We took breaks in between to rest and admire the mesmerizing views of the Kundalika Valley. The surrounding mountains were covered in mist and occasionally, the sun rays passing through the dark clouds created a surreal view. The walk was very refreshing with the soothing sounds of bird calls as well as streams & waterfalls in the distance. There were plenty of streams and natural ponds on the way. Some of us took a plunge in one of the ponds and enjoyed swimming under the gushing waterfall. We reached an open area which was covered with beautiful flowering water lilies on one side and a valley on the other, with a narrow trail passing through it. This was the most beautiful spot on the entire trail. We clicked a lot of pictures. This point is midpoint of the trek. Many of my friends decided to return from this point as next section was difficult one. The trek was tiring because of the long-distance, but it was a refreshing experience to spend some time in nature, away from the hustle & bustle of the city pollution. I met some really amazing people on the trek and it was great interacting with fellow trekkers. This was probably the cleanest trekking trail in the Sahyadris. I would definitely recommend Andharban trek to anyone who is looking for an easy day hike option in the Sahyadris. Some points to note: 1. Hiring a guide or Trek operator I would strongly recommend doing this trek with a good trek operator / guide. Though the trail is defined, it is always better to do this trek with a group and under the guidance of experienced trek leaders and guides. There were few sections where Adventure Pulse team set up ropes which made crossing the streams safely. 2. Transportation The start and endpoint for this trek are two different locations. The distance between the start point Pimpari village and endpoint Bhira dam is almost 22km and there isn’t any availability of taxi or shared vehicles. The network availability in the area is limited. 3. Food and Snacks during the trek There isn’t any food joint or facilities for lunch or snacks on the trail. I would recommend carrying some trail snack such as energy bars, chocolates and dry fruits. Make sure you carry at least 2l of water as it is a long walk of around 13 km. Feel free to contact me on Instagram page: nomadic_mit if you need any help or have queries regarding the trek. Or drop a line to lokhande.amit@gmail.com. Yours truly Cheers!

Destination description: The Bhongir fort was built upon a single rocky hill in Bhongir, a town in Telangana, located in the Nalgonda district of the state. The Western Chalukya ruler, Tribhuvana malla Vikram aditya VI, built the fort from one single monolithic rock in the 12th century. The fort was originally named Tribhuvanagiri, and eventually the name metamorphosed into Bhuvanagiri and eventually, into Bhongir, which is its present name. It is spread across an impressive area of 50 acres at a height of around 500 feet over the top and is about 50 kms from the Hyderabad skirt.

  4. Precursor to the Trip: Mr.Daddy calls me up on Oct 2nd in the evening. Daddy : I had to work today , who the hell works on Gandhi jayanthi? They don't even sell Liquor today. Me : Chill Macha , we chose this job. And have to take everything it throws at us. Daddy: I need some relaxation , plan something for the weekend. Me : Hmm, lets go to Bhuvanagiri Fort, I have been meaning to trek that fort since childhood. Daddy: Done. The plan has been made , but could not be executed the Dussehra weekend, due to the obvious reasons. Our Wives would let us go on a trek on a festival day. And i totally forgot about it , till 12th When Mr.Daddy messages to ask me if i'm available to do the trek on 13th (Sunday). I said yes , and the trip was on. Hill Fort of Bhuvanagiri: If you have ever have traveled to Warangal by road or by train you would not miss this small fort on top of the hill. I remember watching the hill for the first time as a kid, from a train window, on my way to Hyderabad. Since then i was always fascinated by this small fort and it was my long lasting desire to trek to the top of it. The fort is constructed in the 10th century A.D by Tribhuvanamalla Vikramaditya VI. That makes this fort atleast 1000 years old. In contrast Golconda fort is 400 years old. And Since it is built by Tribhuvanamalla , the fort is called Tribhuvanagiri , Which latter became Bhuvanagiri and with the Persian and Urdu influence of the local kings became Bhongir. The fort was built on a small egg shaped hill, and there were small steps cut into the rock to climb up to the fort. Drive To The Fort: I started at 8:30 A.M on Sunday morning , and started towards Mr.Daddy's home in Manikonda, Hyderabad. I picked him up and on the way we stopped at Organic hotel to have breakfast. After having quick breakfast we took the ORR to reach Warangal Highway. (Organic Hotel , where we had or break Fast) As there was no hurry , we mostly drove in the middle lane at 80KMPH max speed, The ORR charged us 140/- to get down at Warangal high way, And soon after that we had to pay another toll on the highway, We took a to and fro pass for 140/- and went on our way. The toll has dedicated lanes for fastag , and if you still don't have one Get one ASAP. As soon as you cross the toll gate and proceed further , you see something like this (Image is taken from Wiki) With the help of google maps we reached the entry point of the fort. There are two gates to get into , one for regular tourists and another for rock climbing school in the premises. There is ample space to park 8-10 cars. We parked our car , proceeded to the shop next to the ticket counter bought ourselves a water bottle & moved to ticket counter to buy our tickets. Ticket cost for Adults is rs: 10/- per head. The Rock has steps cut into it , which looks fairly a recent addition to the 1000 year old Hill Fort. We started our climb from this point. The weather forecast for Bhongir on that day was partially cloudy and with intermittent rains. But Sun god has different plans for us. It was hot and the rock reflected the heat. After a brief walk , we ended up at the first gateway to the fort. There was some shade and i sat there for a couple of minutes. (The first gateway , where you will find some shade.) After the first rest stop , there is enough tree cover and it was a little cloudy , we reached the second Gateway in some time. The distance between the second and third Gateway is not much , but there is a increase in elevation. We soon reached the third gateway , and the the view looked like this after crossing the third gateway. From here there is no tree cover , and to my bad luck there is no cloud cover either. From here , if you walked towards right from the path , you would find some ruins. This signifies that you have reached level 1. From here the path goes on to the top of the hill. We kept on walking and discussing on how ingeniously the architect of the fort has constructed multiple Dams to conserve rain water. (Level 1 ruins towards the left of the picture and Check Dams to conserve towards the right of the Picture) From here the walk way is very steep , one has to be careful. And this can be slippery during rains. (Steep Walk way , with stairs cut into the rock, Rails installed in the modern era for support, Another Check Dam towards right and Mr.Daddy gauging on how far we have to go) After this i was completely exhausted , and stopped at every 5-10 minutes on the pretext of taking pictures ? , Approximately after an hour we started , we reached the top of the fort. (Celebratory pic of climbing the hill, My smile will tell you how happy i was on the top, the cannon at the back might be a late addition to the fort , as they were developed only in 15th century) There are three structures at the top of the Hill , one ruined old fort , and two other government buildings , with Cellular tower on top of one. The other building was build on top adjacent to an old well. (The Pic of the fort). The views from the top of the hill are simply amazing. Google maps told us that we were 1000 meters above MSL. Below are a few pics of the views from the fort. (You can spot Bhongir Railway station , from where i first saw this magnificent Hill Fort. Also , at the bottom right , notice how Dams were constructed to save water.) (Another pond , and the fort wall at a distance) We explored the whole place for an hour , found a small entrance and a staircase, just out of curiosity i went in and started climbing the stairs , and Mr.Daddy followed me. The stairs took us to the top of the fort. There is no higher point in Bhongir Than this. (The fort view from behind) (Me after conquering the fort, instead of a sword i posed with an Umbrella, modern day weapon to fight the soldiers of the nature) By 2 o clock we were hungry and decided to descend, as soon as we thought of of it , we could see dark clouds manifest out of no where and weather became cloudy and pleasant. I wonder where these clouds were when i was climbing up the hill. We climbed down, and there were 6 other cars parked in the parking. We went to the shop next to ticket counter had another bottle of water. Went to a nearby restaurant in Bhongir and had our lunch. After and uneventful lunch , we started back to Hyderabad , and it started raining just as we were ready to leave Bhongir. Tips for Trek to the Top : Carry your own water one bottle per person. Carry an umbrella , Sun or Rain it will help you a lot. Avoid Summers , It was tiring to climb in October Sun. Imagine April Sun beating down on you. Suggest to go in groups, Half of the time i was engrossed in deep conversations with Mr.Daddy , and didn't feel the tiredness. Wear shoes and avoid Slippers and Flip flops at all costs PS: For those who are wondering , why i call him Daddy , You can find the explanation in my previous write up
