So here's to Pune ...all those awesome places in and around it that made moments turn into memories. Happy Reading.

Wanna go for Paragliding over the most picturesque dam . The first time i visited Mulshi dam we stopped our car at a place and i felt i am on the sets of Lord of the rings. there were Hills and trees and the lake . Sharing the Pic below. And Paragliding in Panshet over the lake is like Amazing, You can't hear a thing in the air at that height. But you don't have to , cause everyone is speechless . You see beauty like never before.

Sinhagad Fort

You can never have complete experience to live in Pune if you haven't gone all the way up to Sinhagad fort to watch Sunrise and then end up having Breakfast there. Yeah ..its a Historical Fort but its a modern hangout of all us Puneites ..where you trek to , Drive to ..ride to..yeah some people are free riders. You just tell them you are going to Sinhagad Fort and they just tag along...no invitation from us and no regrets from them . It's like a holy place you have to go with the entire gang.

Tamhini Ghat

Connecting the hilly regions of Pune to the coastlines of Konkan, Tamhini Ghat truly comes alive during the monsoons as the land around transforms to a red earth covered with a blanket of moss, creepers and small shrubs. And there can never be a better road Trip...never ending road to the hills dotted with Waterfalls ..And you can climb up the waterfalls too...EPIC

That What cannot be Conquered : Murud and Janjira

Janjira is about 3 hour drive from diveagar .Now Jangira does not have a beach but is famous for a old fort that stands ..hold ur breath ..in the middle of the Ocean . The old Fort was made in 11th centuary and was one of the famous forts of King Shivaji . The Ride to the fort is bumpy . There is boat that takes u from the mainland to close to the fort .There is no stretch of water for anyone to land . Legend says that fort was constructed in this way to stop any outside penetration by external enemies.

Tarkarli

Scuba Diving Anyone ? Or Snorkeling ? Or Parachute Gliding ?

You name it , Tarkarli has it.

For the beach bums out there, Maharashtra has a treasure chest full of surprises and goodies and the most sparkling among them is the 8km long undeterred coast of Tarkarli. The place where the Karli River meets the Arabian Sea marks the start of the beach and it runs unadultered pure and magnificent till it reaches your heart. Bound to fall in love with this place.
