So let me take you back to the days when humankind was free, unlike the current caged liberty we are into.
Free lectures are generally for gossiping and sleep sessions....but we used these 2 back to back free lectures to create a memory of life time....and How… ?
Let me take you through the journey of 6 Soul'Ohh Travellers!
Railway stations in India are all about vadapav valas and bhel valas shouting in unison. The last thing you'd want to miss on a railway station would be your Train…And yes! we almost almost missed it but thanks to the vadapav vala who's "Tai, tumcha train nighala..." saved our Day! And that’s how it all started.
The train took us through the lush green mountains of Western Ghats, standing tall guarding the pride of Marathas. Around 45mins train ride from Pune station came to an end .We walked out of the station and Then comes the destination – Malvali village(base village). The point from where our foots had to fall in love with its sole(soul). The 20km trek up to Lohgadh Killa in Maharashtra was waiting for us with a road full of adventure and surprises. While we decide to trek up till the mountain top unlike others who were in the cars and buses. Every 5 minutes some or the other in the group would almost give up and want to hitch hike till the top but as decided we thought of sticking to the plan and somehow managed to reach the top. This 5km trek somehow turned out to be a 20km one, only because we wanted to take the shortcut routes who’s existence in today’s date can be thought of because these 6 crazy travelers decided to take the road less traveled. Meanwhile we reach the last phase from where the staircase (350 steps) to heaven i.e. the ‘Gadh Drawaja’ was awaiting to welcome every traveler every tourist with same warmth and love. The lush green spread of trees and mosses, wide stretch of amazing clouds and mist and everything about the place was just mesmerizing. Time froze. Taking us back in the era of Shivaji Maharaj.
After reaching the mountain top …. only thing that caught our attention was beauty of this place and when we looked back to route out path from the start point, I know 6 hearts wept into happiness for having covered this beautiful trail not as tourists but as travelers.
