Kashid is a beach town on the shores of the Arabian Sea, in the North Konkan region of Maharashtra, India. It is located 30 km from Alibag and 135 km from Mumbai on the Alibag-Murud road.170 km from Pune.
The day we had to leave from Ooty, we decided to go flat out till Pune. Not a good decision though. On our way back, we crossed Mudumalai Tiger Reserve and Annamalai Tiger Reserve. The beauty and silence of those huge forests is immaculate. And finally next day early morning by 6 am we reached Pune after 1049kms drive flat out. And I was glad we made it. Thanks to the endurance and enthusiasm of my travel partners to support my plan. And last but not the least, our partner in crime our Mahindra XUV500. With its help we were able to complete this amazing and memorable road trip. These 11 days are pinned forever. And I hope these pictures will do the justice to the memories of this amazing road trip I am sure you all will still enjoy them. Cheers. ????the_unheard_storyteller (Rishab Bhan)
My first time in the city and I have fallen in love! I have lived in more than 10 states but never got so attached! Pune is that part of my life that I would never wanna leave.We left at early noon and had our brunch at the Food Park situated near the highway. We sang to melodious tunes and gossiped all the way while admiring the scenic beauty. On our way we also picked up munchies like corn cobs and salted soaked peanuts.
Day 14: September 30, 2015:I left Pune at 9 AM and began riding towards bangalore. The first leg of the return went peacefully as I reached the outskirts of Kolhapur. A small break for lime soda and I immediately continued riding towards Belgaum. As i crossed Belgaum it was about 2:30 PM.I knew that reaching bangalore by 10 or 11 PM was easy if I continued without a break. Just as I crossed Hubli an near Havery, traffic cops had blocked the highway and diverted traffic towards Ranebennur and from there I had to deviate towards Davanagere. When I reached Davanagere, it was almost 630PM, due to the road condition through the villages.I had a tea and continued towards Tumkur, It was almost 10 PM when I was a few kilometers before Tumkur town. What I hadn't seen in more than a week came back to haunt me. The rain gods came down heavily and the remaining 80 kms to reach home was spent well in getting drenched.When I finally entered bangalore, it was 1145 PM. I had travelled a total of 940 kms in a little less 15 hours. I was trembling and couldn't stand on my feet as the last day journey had taken a toll on me.Finally, I had completed a full 6200 odd kms in about 15 days, going through a lot of "hardship", meeting a few friends, visiting a few places and experiencing unknown roads of the country.It is time to end the blog with a note that everyone should travel to some unknown destination by their own at some point of time in their lives.
Source and Destination city for flight: Pune(PNQ) --> New Delhi(DEL) --> Siliguri(IXB)The price of prepaid taxi was fixed, I was charged 2200 INR for private taxi in December 2016.

After halted two nights we decided to return back to our home. we will never forget this trip as we learn lot of things and gained some mature advises. MANDAV is great place for 2 days or 3 days budget trip as we only spent 2000 rs per person in our whole trip.I really recommand all to visit once there to feel something different which will never felt anywhere else.thank you so much guys. holasee u guys soon with new adventures. bbyeBANJARA.
I decided to go for a trip so i contacted with my friends and at last we were 4 now. 2 for bhopal and 2 from indore. we packed our bags and started our journey at 8 am. As indore in 200 km from bhopal it took 4 and a half hour to reach there. we were at indore now at 12:30 pm. It was great state highway between bhopal and indore at lead as so fast.So now we halted for some time and approx 2 pm. we again started our journey from indore.
Enjoy Holi celebrations in Indore.Holi is not a one–day affair in Indore. After 5 days from Holi, the event of Rangapanchami is organised but it is not the usual Holi colours that paint the atmosphere around, rather it is the colour of music that fills the air. Even the local municipal corporation splashes colour mixed water on the roads of Indore. It is believed that the Maratha Holkars, who conquered the state, brought with them the Marathi tradition of Rangpanchami- where the colors are played on the fifth day.
Finally, at 06:25 PM, I was standing in my Paying Guest House's parking.I got just one word for the route - Serene. I didn't take any pictures in between apart from the images I posted. I was in a bit hurry, as well as I didn't want to ruin the experience. After travelling through the route, I promised myself (just like I did 3 months back that I will go to Jabalpur by road all by myself) that I will revisit this whole route, I will visit each and every natural, historical spot, and then I will capture the serene beauty in some mere images. I want to travel on the same route with people who always inspire me and are my co-riders and family - Mr Akash Vyas (I owe you for the spares and saddle bag), Mr Manish Phillips (he actually called me before the trip and gave me some last minute tips) and Mr Shivendra Shrivastava (man who taught me riding, but I turned out to be a bad student).
AFTER also visiting ahmedabad in very short term we arrived at INDORE next evening and than to BHOPAL.So that was our JOURNEY, it took seven days to complete a travel. Almost 3300 km had travelled by us.One thing i noticed that people from GUJARAT are very collaborative and helpful ,they guided us in every step where we need that. GUJARAT is really a great place and yet need to be explored .I on behalf of me (RAJAT JAISWAL ) and my 2 friends named ( ALOK GADEM & UPENDRA GAUTAM ) are very thankful for the people of GUJARAT. specially a Cab driver and Aunt met at BHUJ . I really admire for your precious help. AGAINTHANK YOU VERY MUCHyou can also question me for related to this gujarat tour. i will admire to guide u.email – email@example.com

The destination of the World Heritage sites of Ajanta and Ellora caves where you find a new meaning of beauty, Aurangaba...
My friend and I decided to catch a bus on one long weekend and go to Aurangabad. All we knew was we wanted to visit the caves we had heard so much about.We reached Aurangabad by morning and as soon as we got off the bus we were swamped by Auto drivers. We asked one of them to take us to any good budget hotel and he took us around town, showed us a couple of hotel and finally we got a decent room near the railway station for 800/- night as we checked in.After the usual morning chores of freshening up we left, taking a share auto to reach the main bus stand. We got a bus going to Ajanta, hopped on and after almost 2 hours of slow, hot drive, we were there.AJANTA CAVES:
The next day, we made a taxi booking with Savaari Car Rentals and set off towards Aurangabad with our driver Nandu. The road from Shirdi to Aurangabad is filled with agricultural fields. On the way, we got to see vineyards, onion farms and acres and acres of cotton plants. The sight of hundreds of cotton plants from the road is simply magnificent. A little ahead, we stopped at Grishneshwar for a darshan of the Jyotirling there. The temple at Grishneshwar is a beautiful, ancient temple, and I recommend visiting it at least once in your lifetime. There was a tiny stall next to the temple where we stopped for some tea and onion pakoda. If you’re planning on making a stop in Grishneshwar, I highly recommend seeking out these tea stalls - they make the best onion chutney to go with the pakodas.After we left Grishneshwar, we visited the Bhadra Maruti Temple in Khuldabad which has a statue of Hanuman in a reclining pose. This is a very rare temple, and the statue is a wonder in itself. We soon reached Aurangabad and headed to Bibi-Ka-Maqbara, more popularly known as the Taj of the South. To us, this felt like the 8th wonder of the world, because this monument looks exactly like the real Taj Mahal in Agra. Until we came to Aurangabad, we had never even heard of this monument!
We reached Ajanta by 11 am,caves are little away from parking place where you get Government buses to go inside Ajanta caves area.We get into that bus and within next 10-15 minutes we were at caves base location ,we brought our camera and entry tickets and started exploring biggest man-made caves I seen ever.
Day 3 started with an early morning trip to Dadar railway station to catch the Tapovan express to Aurangabad. It takes around 7-8 hours and is pretty taxing if you are not used to day time train travels. We preferred this train to avoid complications in check-in time at the hotel etc. There are overnight trains to Aurangabad and also flights from Mumbai. Aurangabad is around 300+ kms away and zoom car is also an option (we did not explore it though).We reached Aurangabad around 1PM and checked into Hotel Keys Aures . After a quick refreshment, proceeded to see Panchakki and Bibi Ka Maqbara. Bibi Ka Maqbara is a must watch though its said to be a poor imitation of Taj Mahal.
The vehicle took off and we set on our way chatting and frolicking , recording videos of ourselves and of the beaut environs of Aurangabad in the pleasant drizzle AND… of course , reminiscing over our old and new one-sided loved ones . The next stop was at a Motel about forty kms before Ajanta caves. Half of us freshened ourselves up , the other half didn’t feel like it. Notsowhite tried to take a dump twice , but to no avail.After at least three of us had relieved ourselves, we took a light breakfast , grabbed a few cans and took off again amid fun , frolic and raunchy remarks and slanders. Theslut , who was a boy. Since we were all boys , spent the journey taking the piss out of Bro. The non-kafir was the quiet and probably the maturest one. I had packed along two books, one of which was ‘the Satanic Verses’ , and throughout the trip , I managed to read no more than five pages.Finally , we arrived at the bus stop of Ajanta from where a shuttle bus would take us to the caves. We bought a few statuettes of supposedly ‘antique-stone’ (as per the seller) and then after taking along a few packets of chips and snacks and clicking a few pictures of the wondrous hills encompassing us , boarded the shuttle bus . It was a short and wavy journey through the hills and forests and was really a spectacle to behold.
We got down at Aurangabad at 8:30 am which was late as the train got delayed by 90 mins. we had our breakfast, rather I would say it was a brunch as we planned to make it till the base village, Salher wadi, without any food breaks by 3 pm and start the trek.We got into the bus at 11:00 am till Malegaon and as per the bus driver we could have reached there by 1:30 but again there was a delay and we only managed to reach Malegaon by 3 pm. Traveling in bus we weren't sure on when would we reach the base village so we decided to take the shared taxi till Satana and continue to base village from there. Thanks to our taxi driver, he agreed to drop us till Salher wadi at very nominal cost. Finally we reached the base village by 6 pm.
Before exploring Bombay we were at our friend’s place at Aurangabad, Maharashtra spending quality time with family. We had a chance to visit Ajanta. It’s a 2 hour drive from Aurangabad. A must visit if you are around Ajanta. It is a thousand years old cave and took around 700 years to construct. I would suggest reading up about Ajanta and then visiting the place rather than hiring a guide, which I did not find reliable. But yes they’ll show some interesting paintings, 3D effects and illusions inside the cave. Total there are 30 caves, only 26 are accessible the other four don’t have a way to get inside. It’ll take you around 3 hours to see all the caves.
As they say that happiness is along the journey not at the end of it, we were actually experiencing it in this road trip of Maharashtra. It was day 3 and we had to cover two more Jyotirlings which were Nagnath in Aundha and Vaijnath in Parli.We had an amazing Maharashtrian breakfast before we left.
Aurangabad is a bustling town (The world-heritage Ajanta and Ellora caves are a little distance away) and I could comfortably find a decent hotel (Hotel Karthiki) near the main bus stop. The hotel was cheap and pretty good for the tariff (Rs. 600 per night). I freshened up and then headed out to the main bus stop to figure out how to get to Lonar. Turns out Lonar wasn’t very much frequented by tourists and was more or less an off-beat destination. I guess researchers and geologists were the ones enamored by the place. So here was the deal with buses. Private buses leave at around 2.30 am to a place called Sultanpur which is about 15km from Lonar. Sultanpur lay enroute to Pune so all buses heading towards Pune might as well stop there on request. There are state transport buses from Aurangabad to Lonar as well but their availability is meager compared to the private buses. One can also take a state transport bus from Aurangabad to Jalna and then head off to Lonar. Jalna is around 100 kms from Lonar and the availability of buses to Lonar from Jalna is more than in Aurangabad. I weighed my options and decided to take a private bus at 2.30am to Sultanpur. Sultanpur is 135km from Aurangabad. The bus promptly did turn up at 2.30 am. It was an uneventful ride to Sultanpur. Reached Sultanpur at about 5.30am. Sultanpur operates private autos to Lonar Village. I parked myself in one of these and amidst “Baazigar” reached Lonar at 6.30am.
Aurangabad is a good place to visit if u love street food.... WE had street sandwich which I think not a single hi fi restaurant can make... WE tasted almost everything there which was available on the streets. There are few historical places but govt is not maintaining them so no one visit them.

Situated on the banks of River Kshipra the holy town of Lord Shiva, having very famous Mahakaleshwar temple it is one of the city which hosts famous Hindu Fair Kumbh once in every 12 years, in addition to all it also have many others temple th religious & holy vibes can be experienced as you enter the city,. In history books it was the also the capital of emperor Vikrmaditya.
In India, the Tropic of Cancer passes through the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Ancient Indian astrologers declared long ago that the line dividing the northern part above the equator passes through the ancient city of Ujjain. The point of Tropic of Cancer is marked by the Madhya Pradesh government and can be easily found.
What when you grab a chance to witness of a holy fair which comes once in every 12 years. Where around 5 billion pilgrims who dives in holy Kshipra along with Hundreds of Akhara Samiti , Naga Sadhu (saint),Monk,Vestal,Mahamandeshar dive in Holy Kshipra at Shinghast Maha-kumbh. The several kilometers long Ghat(pier) a place to set foot, all knew it even though folks were coming in huge amount. What's the matter of factwhich attracts them, such a massive crowd of faith came together even though no invitation sent to anyone, after all, what the hell is in Maha Kumbh and why it held once in every 12 years. Why it is still number 1 Pilgrimage for Hindu. Too many question which were unanswered till i visited this year Ujjain. (MP) Bumb BHOLE...!!!????Year 2016, April 22 to May 21, when it falls during Jupiter stay in Leo(Simha in Hindu astrology), then the Simhastha Maha Kumbh held at Ujjain in Madhya pradesh (India). The city Also known as Mahakaal ki Nagri or A city of temples. As per Hindu ethology or vedic scripture , every Hindu must dive onces in their life in Kumbh for get rid of all of their sins and purged . The Kumbh is held in four cities,once in every 12 years in each city . There it comes in Haridwar and Nasik with difference around 3 years and fair in Nasik and Ujjain celebrated same year or one year apart.The exact date is determined according to a combination of Zodiac positions of the Jupiter, the Sun and the Moon. The Four cities are Allahabaad (paryag) in where three rivers confluence Ganga ,Yamuna and Sarasvati (available as invisible), Nasik in Godawari, Haridwar in Ganga and Ujaain in Kshipra. (Courtesy :-by A Monk in Ujjain ) Hi everyone, it's Honey Rajpurohit. Sharing an another trip, a Holy trip infect. I'm also waiting for that day when i'll sharing a trip about wood, holy-wood. Joke a part, As i brief you above that artical for today dedicates The Shinghast Maha Kumbh 2016 which held at Ujjain in Holy Kshipra river. It was often, 'chaye pe charcha' in our abode about Kumbh fair. Nowdays i was frequently on trips and tours. One more added in my trip dairy, 'Mahakaal ki Nagri.' Many of masses unware of hindi version for 'Diary', its called 'Dainiki', Rail as'loh path aamini gaamini' and gym as 'Shareer Shadhnalye.' The Typical Hindi words. Ohh Gosh..!! "Ab kahe itna hindi ke pichey pade hain, chodiye naa. "i started my 'Yatra' (journey) along with two person who bought me to this beautiful world. My lovely Mom and as usually, soft hearted and red eyed, my Papa. We boarded the train for Ujjain from ludhiana . After few minutes of boarding, i remembered chetan's 'three mistake...' And i stuck,realised that it was my first mistake to prefer train over four wheel drive . Malwa express only a direct train which arrived in Ujjain. The Train was galloped and stoped on every fixed stoppage,mean while masses(passenger is word who travel with their desire tickets but here they Inroad in ac cabin while having journal tickets)were trying to get on the coaches like cattles in every coming station . And the most of passengers were pilgrims. It was long joureny, about 23 hours. We hardly slept due to co-passenger who kept coach busy by weep-bitterly,Scream-squeal,and here i experienced live for the word 'lol'(loughing out loud).. (Sick). The credit went for crying and screaming to all devil kid. Who the hell, wrote," kids are innocent".We reached right time at Ujjain. It was 11:30 am. We grappled to get off the coach. I didn't want to share this part of the joureny, nonetheless i shared for those who plan in future via train, hope they think twice,before. Moreover it happened when you traveled a city where you never ever before.
After breakfast we leave to see Ujjain. Ujjain, known in ancient India as Avantika, is considered the Prime Meridian by Hindu Astrologers and was placed as the center of the world in numerous ancient world maps. Called the small Varanasi, this untapped city encompasses fascinating tangible heritage sites that communicate the history of education and metaphors of the Indian civilization. Return to Indore.

One of the most sacred towns in India, Shirdi, also known as Sainagar or the Land of Sai, is located in the state of Mah...
After resting for a while, we headed out towards the markets near the Dwarkamai, you’ll find a number of stalls selling vada pav, pav bhaji and pani puri if you feel like having snacks in the evening. You can also stay and have dinner around here - there a number of restaurants in the vicinity.
Shani Shingnapur is a small town around 70 kilometres from Shirdi in the hinterland of Maharastra. It is a hub of sugarcane production in the country. It is a famous pilgrim spot for people to propitiate Lord Shani. Pilgrims come from all over to offer their prayers in this holy place. Share taxis are available for around Rs. 200 per head for a to and for journey which can be finished in one day. It takes around 2 hours to reach Shingnapur from Shirdi.Spirituality is not about worshiping out of fear but out of love for god( Daiva Preeti, Papa Bheeti). When we reached the temple it was a peculiar site. All clamoured to put oil and offerings to Shani deva so that their delays, problems and difficulties are alleviated. There was an emotion of fear writ very clearly on their faces. Shani was seen by all as the tormentor who has to be pacified to have a good and peaceful life. Everyone was eager to do their share of worship so that their obstacles are removed and they can get a shortcut to success.There were few lessons which all missed out in the whole process.
I got down from a diesel auto-rickshaw in Rahata, a village five kms from Shirdi and started walking on a dusty road towards Sakori. After a walk of thirty minutes through the hustle bustle of a crowded haat(weekly village market) of the village, I reached Sakori.
Best known as the late 19th century home of the popular guru Shirdi Sai Baba, Shirdi is one of the most famous pilgrim centers with 25,000 devotees coming every day for darshan! On holidays, the number reaches to about half a million people. There are other places of interest that devotees can visit as well, including Dwarkamani Mosque where the Baba, popularly known as 'Child of God,' meditated and slept on alternate nights. Other places of importance are the Gurusthan, the Kandoba Temple, Shani Mandir, Narsimha Mandir, Changdev Maharaj Samadhi and the Sakori Ashram. This is a religious place, so, the food served is vegetarian.

Saputara is a picturesque hill station located in the Dang district of Gujarat. Known as the 'womb of nature', Saputara ...
It was time to go home. We started at early morning, the way is filled with twists and turns. There was a biotic park and a wildlife sanctuary on the way down. We visited both of those. Though, sanctuary isn't recommended if your vehicle is domestic kind of. There a jeep is required. It is a deep forest.
The next day we woke at sunrise. The view from the hotel was awesome. Fresh, non polluted air welcomed us. After enjoying the morning at hotel we went to have breakfast in town.
#TripotoTakeMeToSandakphuThe wish to go to Saputara took birth when i saw the hoarding of Saputara hill station at Junagadh, Gujarat. So, I decided to go to Saputara with my family. It was the time of winter (December). We decided to go there by road. We took our car and traveled all the way to Saputara from Bhuj. We started in early morning. And the journey was mind blowing. Nothing compares to a road trip with your loved ones. we sang at the top of our lungs, got lost; found new roads and much more.. If you want to add more fun to your trip it's good to use google maps; because it shows the shortest path, however those paths may not be highways. We passed through many villages, where roads were barely there, but fun surely was!
5. Saputara is another scenic and idyllic getaway just 250 km from Mumbai. It is a very popular hill station and is situated in the Sahayadri range. The name of the hill station means ‘Abode of the Serpents’. The tourists here can enjoy an array of adventurous activities. The ‘Artist Village’ is the main attraction where one can buy beautiful artefacts and Warli paintings.
5. SaputaraThe name Saputara literally means the ‘abode of serpents’ and one can find an image of a snake situated on the shore of the river Sarpganga that flows through the town. Saputara has mythological importance as it is believed that Lord Rama spent 11 years of his exile here.
Exceptional ghats. Amazing view of the sunset. A must for adventure fanatics.
