Hey fellow Travelers, I hope you all are doing well in the Quarantine period.
I am here with my first blog which is Trip to Velas Turtle Festival.
Velas is a small village situated in the Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra and in the Western Ghats of India. It is a Coastal Village in Konkan Region and located at a distance of 217 km from Mumbai. Every year Olive Ridley Turtles come ashore to lay down eggs between November to December and those eggs hatch in the period of February to April. The villagers, together, welcome tourists coming from overall India to see Baby Turtles walking into the sea.
Our 2 days trip wasn't planned for Velas only, we did enjoy the other places such as Revandanda Fort and Beach, Korlai Fort, Kashid Beach, etc.
