By this time we were hungry (remember I didn't mention lunch till now?), so we left for Shrivardhan instead which was still 20 k.m away. It was a good bet as it was equidistant to Diveagar and Harihareshwar. We reached Shrivardhan by 2 p.m and found a stay for two in a decent resort. We had lunch in our room and took rest till 5 p.m.
The next place on our list was Ganesh gully near Harihareshwar beach, the internet had plenty pictures of this narrow passage between two huge rocks opening to the sea. We were mesmerized and wanted to visit , we searched the place on Google maps and it was found nowhere. We were having none of it, we decide to first reach Harihareshwar beach and then will ask some locals, which was just 19 K.M. away. Sounds like a plan?? No! we reached Harihareshwar, but it seemed nobody have heard the name forget about the directions, some locals told us to instead go to MTDC resorts they will guide better. We went MTDC resort which was located at sea front, a beautiful property. We enquired about the Ganesh gully, the staff said its just few meters away from MTDC back side facing sea. We hurriedly parked our bike and ran towards the back side i.e sea front, huge sea roaring from all directions?? which way? we asked ourselves, we again went back and asked the staff, they said right side. We ran again, this time towards right! we continued walking on rocks beside sea. We walked for half an kilometer, still no glimpse of Ganesh gully, we spotted one group of elderly men,and guess what they too were searching for the same. We had a good laugh on our fate, cursed the staff and left with alternate plan of visiting Harihareshwar temple instead which was just 2 k.m away!
We reached the temple it is placed on beach and offered prayers but in mind we were still stuck on Ganesh gully, while doing the rounds(holy chakkars) of temple we saw a stairway behind the temple named Pradakshina marg. Due to monsoon it was inaccessible as some trees were fallen on the narrow step-way. Still don't know what came in our mind and we sneaked through the stairway before some one stop us, and any guess what was beyond it??
The Ganesh gully .. we felt like Columbus (Haha IKR ;P)
