Few wake up calls later once all the people were up @ 6AM with a nice bed tea, everyone spent some time enjoying the view, playing in the waterfall and clicking tons of pictures.
After breakfast we started for kokankada view point @10AM crossing all the tiny waterfalls on the way.The place seemed like the end of the world with the edge where one could see only fog. Next on the plan was the kedareshwar shiva temple, the snan kund and the kedareshwar tirth/linga.
The kedareshwar temple is a fine example of stone cravings of ancient india. There are entrances from all four sides. On the main entrance there are sculptures of faces. These are faces of guards of the temple.
Linga place in the cave is 5 ft tall and surrounded by waist deep water and is the origin of river mangalganga.
Reached the cave back @ 2:30 PM , had lunch and started for taramati peak which is at 4600 ft above sea level at 3PM. The hike was as beautiful as the destination and the participants enjoyed the rock climbing on the way.From here we can have a glimpse of the whole range of Naneghat and the forts near Murbad. From this Taramati point, one can have a glimpse of forts till Siddhagad near Bhimashankar in the south and Napta twin peaks, Ghodishep (865 meters), Ajoba (1375 meters), Kulang fort (1471 meters) in the north near the Kasara region.
Reached back @5PM ,had the most delicious maggie and tea and moved to the cave.
Mafia, dinner, games, long conversationa were the story for that night until everyone was forced to bed.
