Monsoon is the season which offers you a combo of Lush Green Mountains and Rains in the dense fogg.
The Father of British Columbia, James Douglas once quoted " If Sinhagad is Cave then Torna is the eagle's nest". I always wanted to see why. So i decided to trek Torna. As my native is Pune my stay wasn't a concern for me. My elder brother suggested me to extend the trek for 2 days and complete 2 trek each on one day. Rajgad and Torna. And I dont regret taking that decision.
So we went to take a bus in the morning at Swargate bus stand with my couple of friends. But then the quote "Travelling make us believe that the strangers we meet can be best of friends" came true with me. We met a group of Engineers who were on the trek of Rajgad. So we took a Tum Tum till the base village for 100 Rs per person, which isn't bad for a group of 14 people. Some 40kms from Swargate is Nasrapur the base village for Rajgad. There is a parking Space available at base, and a canteen too. You can have a wonderful breakfast at base and leave for trek. Before you start the trek, there are "Durg Premi" the fort lovers who will check your bags so that u dont carry alcohol or tobacco or ciggarates with you. If you are planning to stay at fort you can also give your dinner orders at the canteen who delivers delicious veg and non-veg food at the top. So we stated the trek and after some time I started to see the Voluptuous mountain with dense fogg. You can see the small orange colour flag at teh top of the fort and the ant like people climbing the mountain. I realized it was still a long way to go. 4250 ft above the sea level is what Shivaji Maharaj built this fort at.
