So from the daily hustle of our lives we all want to spare sometime to travel solo or may be with our loved ones & family.
I packed up all my stuff and decided to give myself sometime on occasion of completing 24 years on this planet as Prateek .
I began my journey from Mumbai (Mira road) towards this place .
Harishchandragad has basically 3 main paths to reach top and is historically an important view point .
It's approximately 160kms one way from my city till the base camp . So I decided to take the route less travelled by.
I reached the base camp(Khireshwar) at around 11am . Had my lunch and relaxed a while amidst calm trees around the village houses .
Now you may ask why Khireshwar and definitely it's not the route less travelled , infact it's the heavenly path that leads to the top .
But wait a minute , secret India has got some amazing detour on the way and we never count the days and time. So here I am at the base village ready to begin the trek after sumptuous food that had a unique Maharashtra staple.
So after beginning the trek from Khireshwar village after an hour or so begins the forest patch (dense) and has 3 routes , being solo and completely backpacked I fear no death of uncertainty . Take the straight route here since the other two will take you directly to gad via some route .
Now was the real excitement that started to show up , I was thrilled and I could feel the vibe of wilderness here after walking few 1600 metre .
It was almost 5:30pm and it was going to be dark as early winter was kicking in with an autumn touch on the ground .
I felt as if mother earth has painted a canvas of story for my life and I had to live it. I pitched my tent , started a campfire and relaxed a while.
Cooked my food on the burner and concluded for the day.
