The Kolad is a hamlet situated on Mumbai – Goa highway. Mainly, Kolad River Rafting in Kundalika river is the most famous activity and thus makes the place an adventure hub near Mumbai and Pune. Apparently, Kolad hosts many other adventure activities & water sports as well. Newly launched, bungee jumping in Maharashtra is the biggest attraction of the town.
Monsoon is the best season for trekking near Mumbai. This time we planned for Chanderi trek near Badlapur. I called up my trekking friends who stay in Badlapur for more info. I got to know that Vangani station is more closed to Chanderi base village. Vangani is next station to Badlapur station. Also, it is not the typical fort with the bastion and fortification wall. It is the pinnacle and must be used as a watchtower or hideout place during that era. One can explore caves, water tanks and rock-cut steps during Chanderi fort trek.
This time we desperately wanted to explore new location. Through one my friends of friends I got to know that there is less explored or untouched waterfall near Khalapur, Khopoli. It was Madap Waterfall of Khopoli region. Locals used to pronounce as “Maadaap waterfalls”. I searched on internet for any info but there was no single blog on the same. At the same time, I was happy to know that Google also doesn’t know means it is indeed less explored and has to be untouched.
There is an important update on Bhimashankar trek via Shidi Ghat. There were two routes from Khandas to Bhimashankar, one is Ganesh ghat and other is Shidi ghat or ladder route. Now, everyone including trekkers, pilgrims and locals are requested to not opt for ladder route as ladders collapsed due to landslide in the area.
The Palasdari waterfall near Karjat is located at quaint and charming Palasdari village. Few call it Palasdhari waterfall or Palaasdari or Palasdhuree. The waterfall is the hidden gem in the surrounding hilly area of the village.
Most of the friends and blog gave itinerary of 2 days only. But, we wanted to do Bhimashankar Trek in one day from Khandas i.e. Karjat side. We were interested in difficult route of Bhimashankar Trek via Shidi ghat.
Like every trekker, I wanted to explore this massive beauty – Harishchandragad fort. As usual, I asked my team to plan Harishchandragad trek on weekends. It is a very special fort for every trekker due to the awesome Konkan Kada and evening Sunset at this place is a very unique experience. So we planned for Konkan Kada camping this time.
