Away from the hustle-bustle of a city life, there is a small town in Raigad, Maharashtra, which is way too beautiful to spend a weekend. Serene beaches, scenic views, green lush, and a route which held us spellbound.
" Harihareshwar ", a small town in Raigad, Maharashtra,Near shrivardhan, around 200 kms from Mumbai. It is a place from where River Savitri enters the Arabian Sea. Harihareshwar, A pilgrimage, also have beautiful beaches. It is surrounded by three hills named Harihareshwar, Harshinachal and Pushpadri.
Starting from Panvel, Maharashtra, we took route through Indapur
Enroute we did lunch at kolad road
Roads are good and ensures good connectivity to the place.
Route from mahasala to Harihareshwar is awesome. The curves and green lush, Banyan trees, and huge spread of prop roots of the banyan tree. The glossy, green and large leaves of banyan trees keep our eyes rolling on them.
Banyan tree is a plant that grows on another plant, when its seed germinates in a crack or crevice of a host tree or human edifice. Old trees can spread laterally by using these prop roots to grow over a wide area. In some species, the prop roots develop over a considerable area that resembles a grove of trees, with every trunk connected directly or indirectly to the primary trunk.
Swinging on its trunk is a good game to play with kids and family, while stopping enroute at a banyan tree. It gives metropolitan children a feel of village life.
