While we were busy looking at our destination which was visible but miles apart, suddenly we were attacked my huge bees (were not honeybees luckily but looked similar). For good 1 hr they were behind us till they bid goodbye when it became dark and we lit our headlamps, it was a huge sigh on relief though. Also we took them positively as they became our entertainment and our travel partners for some time ;)
I had definitely done night treks, I have already visited Rajmachi in the night as well as day time and lead the trek before too but this time it was a very different experience. I was alone with a friend who had no idea about the place, it was dark night and not a single creature visible back or front(which was not what I expected). Definitely I was lot more worried but also well versed with the area and sources of help but I had to show I'm strong , not afraid and everything was perfectly fine :p My only job at that time was to keep my worried friend engaged with some shit stories and like other trek-leads give her hopes that we are just about to reach even when we were 2 hrs away from our base village (Udhewadi- Base village for Shrivardhan and Manoranjan fort, fortification is together called as Rajmachi). Also for some more thrill we met few local guys on bike who offered us drop till the village which we politely declined and kept walking.
