Today's first point of visit was Murud janjira fort. And we have to take a ferry to reach there so carrying the bags would be difficult. Had a word with the hotel manager and asked them to keep my luggage in a room and I would pick it up after coming from janjira fort. A day prior he said that try to go as early as possible as there will be a huge line for the tickets also it Sunday soothe rush will be more. I managed to reach there around 8.45am only to find the counter hasn't opened yet and I was the second person there to get the tickets. There are 2 to 3 port from where you can get a ferry, I went to the khora bunder, here the parking is free as of now. It hardly takes 5 to 10 min to reach to the main door of the fort. Once you reach closer we need to shift from the ferry to small boat which will take you to the steps of the fort. After alighting there i found the person who has the key to open the fort was travelling with on the same ferry in which I was travelling. So we were the first batch to enter the fort for the day. It is always recommended to get a guide who will explain about the fort or else it would be as if you seen a half ruined fort and nothing else. Knowing about it's history will make you enjoy the travel. We had an hour and the guide explain very well about the history of the fort. It was fascinating to hear about it. Another fort called as kasa fort which is also known as padmadurg fort is at a distance from this fort , which was being built to capture janjira fort, but that was never completed and janjira fort remained as a fort that was never conquered by other. Came back took my bags and headed ahead came across siddi palace but no one is allowed to get in as the royal family still stay there. Continued towards khokari tombs which is on the way towards dighi. This was a totally deserted place but the construction was good. After this reached dighi port to take my himalayan for its first ferry ride. Cost of the ticket was 55rs. Crossed from to dighi to agardanda then covered diveagar,srivardhan and harihareshwar beach spending some time at each of this place. As per plan I had to reach near bankot fort area and find an accommodation for the day and explore the fort next day morning. But there still sunlight left so took the second ferry vesavi-bagmandle and reached bankot fort at a few kilometres from there. Some work was going on in the fort with no tourist there. It is very small fort. In fact you can stand at the entrance and view the whole fort, even if you choose to walk around it, it will take not more than 5 minutes to do. By the time it was dark now and there was no accommodation around this place so started to ride towards kelshi with an expectation to find a room there, though I was not sure there will be hotels for stay there. Riding solo after sunset and that too in interior konkan is a scary thing as there will no one around, all villages will be at a distance, no street lights, and then thoughts like what will happen if there will be an issue with the bike, what was that sound, is someone following Me,etc starts coming. Naturally you will be a bit nervous. These places won't have net so no maps and after dark it is difficult to find someone to ask for directions. At one point I missed the route but luckily found few people who were walking on the road. Each passing kilometres was like it's taking a hour. But the road was good and i was riding at a constant speed. While trying to concentrate only on ride I found something sitting on the road from a distance. It had long hairs over its body. There was a sudden fear that it would increase in size and pounce on me as I had heard several witch stories when I was in konkan during my collage days. But I had slow my bike and neither that black thing which was on the road moved even by an Inch. Went past to it didn't stop and luckily reached kelshi. Ask few people there and they guided me to a hotel run by Mr. Yogesh Anavkar. Met him and came to know that he is also a biker,so gave me good discount as well. Was finally relieved after finding a place to stay. Upon enquiring it with yogesh came to know that the black animal was a forest cat which has long hairs on its body.
