It was Independence day holiday and like any other traveler I was too lazy to sit in the house and enjoy the Parade. So me and few friends of mine decided to go on a bike trip but as usual were not sure of the location where to go. Our plan changed from Imagica to lonavla to lohagad to Mahabaleshwar. This included scrutinizing all the aspects of how much tired we would get to questions like how much should we ideally ride on our bikes in a day. The difficulty of the climb was also an aspect that was considered and I will tell you the reason of it later. After spending the day before in office searching and scrutinizing all the options for the ride. We zeroed up on this Fort as our challenge on a Saturday. The difficulty level was mentioned as moderate which we amateurs thought was doable, since our confidence was more than what we could carry. LOL moment !
Nevertheless the journey started from Pune and soon we reached the foothills of the fort stopping two three times to click photographs on the way or have some poha and chai-sutta. Yes. how can anything be complete without chai-sutta. The fort is at a distance of 75kms approax and still we managed to get lost while on the way.
