The day before going to this trek I updated my FB status as "Going for a range trek after a long time....my sleeping bag sees the outer world after one year". Indeed it was a long time I did a 2 days trek, 2014 went doing 1 day treks or just no trek for a brief period of time. The reason I would not better explain here, coz that's a long story which I would like to pen down in my blog at some point in future. So I was really excited about this trek and more eager to go as there were some old faces to be seen after a long time. Shikarvedh arranged this trek in Nashik Region, it was almost a tradition of Jagdish Patil (group leader) to arrange Nashik range trek in January. All the old and regular guys of the group would assemble for this trek as newbies were generally not interested in such treks which were less of picnic and more of exploration. I would call this group more of explorers than trekkers, as all guys are interested more to see what's up their at the top of the fort and the trek just happens for that only reason.
Our group of 14 people started cruising on smooth Mum-Nashik Highway on Friday Night (16thJan) in a tempo traveller. Our driver was manoeuvring through the heavy vehicles traffic on highway with surgical ease. With a small tea and pee break we were in Nashik around 4 o clock were two more guys from Pune joined us. From Nashik we started moving towards Chandwad which is about 60 Kms on Mumbai Agra Highway. 4 kms ahead of Chandwad keeping your vehicle on the same highway we took a left when you see chandwad temple and fort at the right side (1 km after toll plaza). After 10 minutes, we reached Rajdherwadi which is base village for Rajdher and Koldher Forts. After a hearty "Poha" breakfast at Pundlik's house, everyone was ready to take on the challenges which were expected to come throughout the day. Pundlik was the young guy from Rajdherwadi village and our guide for two days. As SunGod threw light into the surroundings we could see Rajdher and Indrai Forts clearly from the village which were looking like big black figures in dark
