I always believe "journey is more beautiful than the destination".
This trek was the first-night trek I have done to date. This trek is also important because it was just 2 weeks before the national-wide lockdown due to covid-19. I with 3 of my school friends came for the night trek.
We started the journey around 1 pm on 6th March from Mumbai. Took a local train from Ghatkopar to Kasara. To minimize the cost we took a St bus from Kasara station(70 rupees/person). Tum tum is also available from the station. The distance between the Kasara bus stop to base village Bari is around 50km. Reached the base village around 5.30 pm. At the base village, we rested and had our food. Since it was a night trek and no one among us knew the path ahead so we decided to take a tour guide from the village.
