After getting down at Khubi Phata in the middle of a very foggy night , we settled down in a local roadside joint,hoping to catch a few hours of sleep before commencing our trek at the crack of dawn, here we met a group of trekkers from Pune & soon realised that busloads of trekkers were already at Harishchandragadh & finding accomodation in the caves at the top was going to be a problem.Heavy fog resulting in reduced visibility delayed our start by an hour , however the 5 km walk from the Phata to Khireshwar village walking along the banks of the Khireshwar dam is one of the best walks of my life, dense fog cutting of the view from all sides & only a little patch of road directly in front of us visible, it felt much like a heavenly walk amidst clouds.Finally an hour later we managed to reach Khireshwar village & headed straight to a local dhaba, a nourishing breakfast of Poha & a steaming cup of Hot tea in the rainy weather did much to liven up our spirits,& finally half an hour later we were ready to make the final push to the top,walking along the well beaten track, we soon crossed the dense jungles at the base of the fort, & gaining altitude slowly but steadily reached the Tolar Khind- a 100 ft rock wall that stands guard to the fort....

Weekend Getaways from Khireshwar  

Best time to visit - January,February,October,November,December
India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
