Sitting at home on a weekend-indeed a bad idea, isn’t it!! So yes here we were, six very different people all set to go for a trek to one of the most beautiful places amidst the mountain ranges surrounding Mumbai- the Mahuli Fort. With all the excitement and a tight schedule in hand, the journey commenced. Having boarded one of the early locals towards Aasangaon-a small village in the outskirts of Mumbai, we were lucky to find an empty compartment which helped some “really tired ones” to sleep- different story that they weren’t allowed to take even a short nap-all thanks to the “most excited one” in the group.
On reaching the base through the disco auto rickshaw (credits: the roads of rural India), we were all set for the ‘medium’ level trek. With all the enthu and energy we had, it seemed to be an easy one.
If you’re desk slug, this is the most next-to-obvious question when you are insisted to the point of irritation by your close friend or family about going on a trek. You are definitely not interested in putting any effort to google about it.
