Tired of the city noise and pollution and all the honking I decided to pack my bag, put on my shoes and caught a train to Lonavala for a day. Like I expected the weather was beautiful it rained just enough to keep the place cool constantly. I wanted to find peace so I thought of going to the highest point I could go to which led me to going to Lohagad (iron fort) which belonged to Shivaji Maharaj. This fort was build to protect Bhaje caves. I got off at lonavala and then took a local train to Malvali and from there began my journey being an amateur trecker did not expect myself to complete the trek but with the support of my friend and my will to not give up managed to get right to the top, which was worth it. It was a long tiresome road but I managed to complete it. I walked from Malvali station to the base of lohagad and leave  climbed my way up in my mission to find quite. During my walk i came across many waterfalls. When I finally reached up I was shocked. I was as high as the clouds, the air was clean, my mind was at ease and I wasn't tired anymore. The calming winds didn't make me want to leave. If I could I would live up there with the clouds. The best time to go is during the monsoon.
