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, the city’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 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 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.
About Tail Baila
I have been wandering for more than a decade now...for many summer outings are nothing but visiting hill stations....more on that Summer in Maharashtra is directly proportional to no schools, family outing, hill station , mango farms and beaches making you "condense". I generally opt for camping in Sahyadri away from hustle and bustle of life....away from typical tourist set ups.Recently I planned to camp near the Fort in lonavala region named " Tail Baila"......I had been here approximately 8 years ago for a trek to the Fort...no wonder this place was in mind since then...There are two routes to this place1. Pune - Pirangut- Paud- Tamhini- pimpari- Ekole-Salter Khind- Tail Baila. ( 97km approx.)2. Lonavala- Bushi dam- INS Shivaji ( naval area) - Ghusal khamb - Machagaon- Salter- Salter khind- Tail Baila ( 33 km)Covered by thick forest the area is protected to conserve medicinal plants in and around the region.Tail Baila is nothing but two box shaped pinnacles raised approx. 600 ft.Going towards the south eastern side keeping the firt on try he right, the off road takes you to small dam wall. Here is the deep valley , giving you magnificent view. Fort Ghanagad on East, Kivni plateau on South, Khadsambale village far in the valley and Fort Sudhagad on West is perfect set up for camping.It is feast if you plan a barbeque....just like I did.Just remember to leave the place more clean than it was before. I am sure this place would quench you thirst for off beat summer outing.
