Driving through Meadows, Gazing at clouds..
This Eternal Trail leads to Misty Shrouds….
Malshej Ghat, a 2300 ft. mountain pass, 120 kms northwest of Pune district of Maharashtra, India provides an enthralling trail to follow. This thriving landscape residing in the majestic ranges of the Sahyadris is not just picturesque for the eyes but also delightful for the soul.
The trail I followed to witness this was accompanied with bunch of my friends riding on motorbikes to enjoy this at the fullest. After driving through Pune-Nashik Highway which is pretty good in condition and provides a scenic beauty as well of the surroundings, we headed towards Shivneri Fort which is located near a small town of Junnar. It was month of September so weather was pleasant and sunny.
After driving for 2.5 hours through some villages, surrounded by farm lands, we entered into this 17th-century military fortification located on a hill and directly accessible by the vehicles till its entrance.
