After about a walk of 1 hour, we reached our destination. THE TAMDI SURLA WATERFALL.
The first view of the waterfall was absolute thrill. The waterfall was roaring and cascading downwards with full energy with water current was too intense that we did not dare to go right below the waterfall.
The perk of visiting Tambdi Surla falls is that it allows to take a dip and enjoy the stings of leeches at the same time, while the Dudhsagar fall can just be viewed from far. :)
Sitting by the waterfall, I realized everything happens for a reason and it’s worth accepting the unexpected sometimes. It was worth missing Dudhsagar. It was worth that we couldn’t alight at Dudhsagar station. It was worth spending sometime in uncertainty at Kulem station. And, It was worth trekking to Tamdi Surla.
After spending quite sometime by the fall, we started our journey back. The rains decided to accompany us on our way back and we happily embraced the showers.
One more round of Antakshari on our way to Kulem. Back at the resort, decorations were done with balloons and flowers to celebrate Aayushi and Pankaj’s birthday followed by cutting the cake.
The delicious lunch was followed by several rounds of selfies, groupies and videos. Bidayi (Farewell) songs for our trekmates from Pune. “Jab We Met” and “DDLJ” clips at Kulem station. Hitesh's act as coolie (porter) was ultimate. Random songs. Aditya ki shaadi (Aditya’s marriage), all crazy stuff till Margao.
Margao to Mumbai - songs, songs and songs. Everyone singing at the peak of their voices with gestures, chorus and music. Kunal’s dance with stupendous expressions. Dinner followed by spooky stories of Dudhsagar and Rajmachi.
Bidding farewell to everyone at Panvel next morning. Back to home and respective offices.
Thank you Trek Mates India for one more amazing experience. Special thanks to Manoj, Sandesh, Sanket, Shilpa, Ranjita and Arun.
