Being a travel hungry person, i always keep doing research of the places i can visit in my affordable budget and experience the most beautiful of things. I had heard a lot about the Kalavantin Durg trek from many of my friends as well as on various different treks that i have done. So ultimately i had to go for this one someday. Bored of all the daily chores, I decided to go for a Kalavantin Durg Trek. The unique thing about this was it was a night trek and we would be watching the sunrise from the top. I packed my haversack and off i went to the meeting point which was Panvel station.
We were asked to report at Panvel station at 2300 Hrs. and a 45 min drive in a 6 seater rickshaw or tam-tam, as called locally took us to the base village of Thakurwadi. We got off the tam-tams to trek up above now. The breeze was cold as it was late winters and the starts shone in the sky clearly.
The stars and the moon that shone in the sky was amazing for stargazing and we did that for a quarter hour as we waited for our guide who was making some arrangements for departure from base village for the following day. Post introduction session, we started trekking and for a few minutes the road was plain straight and torches started lighting our way. Though we couldn’t make out much of the roads we were only instructed that there were some dangerous curves and gaps ahead so we had to have a watchful eye.
