you need to book a ferry from the starting point where a small shop is located where you can book. Rates for ferry and other expense.

Max 12 people 3500rs(if you have 10 or 8 or 2 people then too the rate is 3500)

150rs boat(additional cost for the boat again)

30rs per person(forest fees)

Its takes about 90 minutes for the boat to reach the base of trail walk to vasota. After walking for about 15 to 20 minutes there you will locate a forest office which collects a deposit of the plastic bottle, tiffins and plastic bags you carry which while returning you need to show them the same to avail the deposit back.

Investing in trek or travel makes a person richer. Converts strangers to Friends on the journey, this trek was also same as per the above sentence.

we started from dadar by train to reach panvel by 2300, we had a private vehicle waiting for us to take us to vasota. Budget treks and unplanned are the most exiting ones.

Day 74

Myself and three friends reached panvel by 2300 but one of our friend was running late and landed up coming by 2345, so we started late for the journey. Dadar -(train) panvel - pune - satara - bamnoli.

Vasota Fort is located about 70 km from satara near Bamnoli village, on the way you can also see the kaas plateau. we reached early morning by 0530, got fresh and ate poha, tea for breakfast.
