Maharashtra is the place where you can find numerous beautiful places to explore. If you are a sort of person, who loves to trek you can find so many trek points near Pune and Mumbai. People usually talking like Trekking is a dope or drug, Trekking is an adventure, Trekking is to backpack and explore outdoor for me trekking is like a medicine. Mainly I am in the IT field, so I am always work in front of the laptop, workloads so sometimes I feel like hectic but its part of my work. I always desire to explore and see new places, to do something different. And I can find some weekend holidays hardly. I am living in part of Khandesh called Dhule. Where I hardly sorted some places to visit in Monsoon season. Finally, I made a list and decided to begin from most exciting and adventurous place - Laling Fort.
