Touching Grandfathers feet...

date : 26th June 2010

who: Tejas, Samit, Sudhir and Me.

where : Ajacha dongar also called Aja-parvat or Ajoba which means Grandfather..

how : Take the NH3 from mumbai towards Nashik.. Ride till Shahpur and then take the diversion to Dolkhamb.. The base village for the trek is Dehne which is another 10 kms from dolkhamb..

road conditions : awesome to good.. even the internal roads from shahapur to dolkhamb are in great condition.. the rains has still not slashed away the tar.. only a few kms at the end were not in good shape.. else it was a bliss..

what did i do : just ride.. we dint trek as it was blazing hot.. monsoon was actually MonSun with no sign of rains in sight.. We reached the base of the mountain at around 1.00pm with all the stops for photos and eating and timepaas in between..
stayed there till around 1.45 and started our way back to a river that we had seen in between.. Had a relaxing time in the river for over an hour and a half..
Went to check the Ghatghar project.. but we dint have prior permission had to suffice by just looking at the dam wall in the distance..

Reached back home at 7.00pm with 270kms on the odo..

Some memories to cherish ::

Trek to Sudhagad fort

Date : June 20 2010
Destination :  Sudhagad fort
Who : Me, Deepak, Salil, Sanket, Arnod, Arjun and Sankets 2 friends (Renaldo & Ketan)

Me, Arjun and Doc were on bike and the rest were in sankets car.. Deepak was our trek guide..

About the fort :
Sudhagad fort lies very close to Pali (one of the Ashtavinayak devasthan). Its about 2 hours drive from mumbai. 
Base village Paachapur i suppose marks the start of the trek. Its about 20 kms from Pali.
The roads are nice and clean with the internal roads being built under the Pradhan mantri gram sadak yojana..

Trek : Its easy for starters like me who are arm chair keyboard warriors.. The actual trek is said to be of not more than 1.5 hours but i took my own time .. nearly 2 hours from the base to the top..
