Thanks to GHAC and the Organizer Dr.shri for conducting a wonderful event to explore the forts and cave in Rajmachi. In GHAC event page before the event date, so many people showed their interest to join with us to explore the forts in Lonavala. But, many of them were not able to turn up due to work schedules and other inexplicable reasons. They really missed the natural world and the wonderful experience we had.
We are here trying to share our experience to help you set your plans perfectly well in order to explore this place.
We are a team of nine boys with little knowledge on trekking and many of us were new to GHAC club. Before hand, our organizer had given us some very useful trekking instructions, things to bring, route plan, what to do and what not to do etc. We were pretty much clear with how we were going to spend our two days there.
We started off with all inexplicable enthusiasm:
Reaching our destination – the next day:
None of us were aware of the route to dam and there were many diversions on our way. We took help of the pedestrians on the road (even a funny incident happened between our organizer and a drunkard man.
Essence of the trekking – reaching the dam
We reached the dam in the morning at or around 5:00am and were even a bit confused with the route which leads to the Rajmachi fort. We decided to explore the dam till the fog cleared away. We were just anxiously waiting for the warmer day light.
