Day 1

Covid 19 was the Prison to Lockdown everyone in their homes in 2020
Finally after 8 months the Lockdown, cases started falling down, As we are regular travellers and After 8 months of Lockdown we were just Restless and very Curious to move around to mark the new place in our travel bucket list
After thinking a lot, I came up with a plan which is given below
* Long drive
* Pune to Goa Via Amboli Ghat
* Goa to Vengurla
* Goa to Jog Falls
* Rest in Goa
* Back to Pune via Choral Ghat

***We selected Goa as main halting point, because
Goa has All type Star hotels
Less number of Covid Cases and
as Tourism is major GDP of Goa so Sanitation of Rooms is Most important role in Goan hotel industry.

My Mode of Transport for this trip

Day 2

Day 1 - Trip to Goa Via Amboli Ghat

We left Pune at Around 8am, we had our home made breakfast with us and had it while driving.
The first stop in Long journey was Hotel Kaveri Nipani.
We checked the hotel, all people were wearing mask and hotel was clean, so we had our lunch.
In lunch we ordered Mutton Thali and Veg Thali.
Mutton thali had 2 Roti, Mutton Masala, Tambda rassa, Pandhra Rassa and rice which was sufficient for 1 Person and cost was 200/Thali
Veg Thali had 2 Vegetables, 1 Curry, 2 Roti and Rice and costed us at 140rs
Amboli Ghat is 70km from Nipani, it's Famous for its biodiversity, but in our plan we had spared time only for Amboli waterfall.
Around waterfall you see many monkeys, just move around without seeing them, then it's safe, but ensure that your things not Snatched by them.
We reached waterfall around 4pm and had beautiful photography.
The place was bit crowded, and police were driving out people from Waterfalls.
Amboli waterfalls is very beautiful and should be in every travellers bucket list.
After Amboli waterfalls our Target was to reach Goa, take night rest and early morning leave to Vengurla

Beautiful way to Amboli Ghat

Day 3

Day 2 - Vengurla

Got up early morning, Got fresh Had complimentary breakfast.
We were on our way to Vengurla, on our Way we came across a beautiful Church
"Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Panaji"
It was quite beautiful and had seen it in many films so we spent some time in Photo shoot.
Vengurla is just besides north Goa so it didn't took much time to reach there.
In Vengurla we explored
Vengurla beach/Sagareshwar Beach
Sagareshwar Temple
Golven beach resort
Kondura Beach

Vengurla beach is also called as Sagareshwar Beach, Sagareshwar Beach has small and beautiful temple of Lord Shiva and called as Sagareshwar Temple.
Besides Sagareshwar Beach there is beautiful resort named Golven beach resort, which I regularly saw it on Booking.com and always had wish to be there.
Had our lunch at Golven Beach Resort, Goan Prawns Currey, which was amazing, done beautiful Photography and Left to Kondura Beach.
Kondura Beach is a less known place, due to which its always less crowded and clean.
The beach was much cleaner or you can say one of the most clean beach in Maharashtra and there was one river making its way to unite in Sea, it was quite beautiful to see.
Many Coconut trees and Some huge Rock patches on beach make it more photogenic.
We Ended our Day in Kondura and left back to Goa.

Day 4

Day 3 - Jog Falls

When we were on trip to Gokarna, that time saw in Map, that Jog Falls is near, but we had no time so didn't do it.
But now in this Trip Jog Falls was considered.
Jog Falls is around 190 Km from South Goa and can be a One Day Return Trip for people visiting South Goa and having 1 day Spare.
As usual we got up early had Complementary breakfast and Left to Jog Falls in morning around 9am.
The weather was awesome.
The Road was also good, at some part of road I touched speed of 160km/hr it was max speed I have ever touched.
Last 60 km road is ups and Down on Mountains, all way Zig Zag, road being smooth it was awesome place to Drive.
All way around is dense forest, one must drive to Jog Falls.
We reached there had Photo sessions, had our Lunch & ticked Jog Falls in our Travelling Bucket list.
People usually Descend and Enjoy in Waterfall, but because of Covid and to maintain Social Distancing we opted not to Descend
Left Back to Goa
