There are a lot of beautiful places in the world. But those beautiful places has different beautiful faces. This is what I found during my recent ride to Malshej ghat. It hardly 120km from mumbai and this place looks too too too beautiful during monsoon. But I have been to this place during autumn. After doing a lot of ride for which we had to pass through lonavala, one of my friends suggested this time we will choose a place for which there no need to go through lonavala. Other friend suggest Malshej. I was a bit reluctant in the beginning, as I was not aware how this place would be in summer though it looks awesome during monsoon. Thought of giving it a chance and believe me it was the most smoothest ride I have ever done. The day was fixed but obvious it was a Sunday and it was planned that we would leave early so that we can ride back by evening. And you all know there no word as early in Sunday. We were late not much but by an hour of our decided time. We planned were to assemble and we met at the decided place and our ride started. The road were absolute beauty were we could easily cruise at 100-110 + kmph. We didn't even get a single pothole or rough patch. We took the bhiwandi- asangaon-murbad route without getting inside kalyan. Enroute We stopped at a hotel called Shiv sagar few kilometers before a toll naka which leads to Shahpur for breakfast. The food served was really good, especially the filter coffee. We continued our ride, till Shahpur it was a good 4 Lane neatly laid highway. Then we entered the murbad route. Even this road was too good with the landscape and it went through villages at certain places. This was a kind of single lane road but one could easily ride at 100kmph. Overall the whole route was so scenic that we had to halt at many places to click some photos. After a number of photo stops we reached the tip of the Malshej ghat. The mountains here reminded me about my solo ladakh ride as some part resembled exactly the same. The view from the top was too good. We sat down there for sometime and had some refreshments and of course some photo shoot. As we had to return before evening, we started our ride back. On the way found one person selling cashew fruits. So brought some for me. Even while returning we halted at few places to click some photos and to check fellow riders are in track with us. By 5pm we were back which was 3hrs more than our calculated time. But we really spent a quality time which will be a part of our memory forever and ever.
