Thanale Caves Trek

Since we’ve failed to get to Thanale Caves on September 16th, visiting the caves had been on my mind. So on the very next weekend, Thanale Caves became our priority. We made our way to Thanale Village early morning. The locals suggested us to take a guide because the trail is quite confusing and slithering

Trek to Ghangad Fort

Ghangad Fort 6

We’re still obsessed with the beauty of the monsoon. We woke up in the morning, and the boys put on their trekking shoes while I brewed some hot chocolate and put it in the flask. We’re ready for another weekend adventure. This time we’re going to the notorious Ghangad Fort, the magnificent fort hidden in

When I was a kid, I accompanied my dad on the hunting trips near the Mekong River. We went there at least once a year in a big caravan of his friends. I was a tom boy, and I loved adventurous stuff so I didn’t mind sleeping in the forest full of mosquitoes. Some nights,

I’m an outdoor person, but now-a-day, when I look out my window I feel so discouraged. The weather is horrible. It’s so hot and dry. So, I’m feeling trapped because it’s so hard to find a place to hang out in the summer. I want a forest full of big trees, a big lake with

Pune University Flower Garden September 19, 2012

How would you like to come and walk in a flower garden with us this evening? It isn’t there, but I feel the sweetest scent of Kapok tree flowers (White silk cotton tree) in the wind. If you are not familiar with Kapok tree flower, then imagine the smell of pungent wild honey drifting freshly

Bedse Caves

Something that has been standing for 2,300 years, against rain, storm, wild wind and traveler invasion, tells stories while you are enchanted by it. The determination and artistic of the creator of these ancient buddhist caves amazed me. With too little technologies and advance tools, the labors of Bedse Caves carved the one great mountain

Rajgad Fort Part II (Descend)

If you don’t know how we landed here at 4,324 ft. above sea level, check out Part I of our adventurous tale. Adrenaline surged, we finally made it to Rajgad Fort. We inhaled cod mist into our lungs so deeply, and it was so fresh. It was magnificent and quite difficult to explain in words. The

Rajgad Fort Part I (Ascend)

How do you define risk? Risk is a possibility of incurring misfortune or danger. Safety is the most important factor in traveling, but to find adventure, you need to take your chances. Yaseen hung on to my chest while my right hand grasping firmly on a thin metal rail. Sadik was down below me, and

Thokarwadi Dam

Summer strikes us pretty harshly this year. Waking up one morning, I realize winter has gone. It was hot and pretty much every organ of me screams for water in every single minute. It is pretty exhausting to imagine we are entering the long, hot summer. Last Sunday, we drove for water. Like fish struggling to

Matheran

Winter is very charming this year. The cold breeze is wonderfully gentle and fresh. It is such a perfect season for a long stroll along the mountain curves and high plateaus. I can’t think of anything to do better than holding my husband hand on the left and a tiny Yaseen’s hand on the right
