...Off beat track to Alibaug...

What could have been done in 90kms.. we did it after driving 250kms..
What could have been a 3 hours drive.. turned out to be 9.5 hours of drive..
What should have been an average 0mts elevation.. We ascended to nearly 1550mts.. 
Thats what we did this long weekend..

One leave and you have the freedom of having 4 days at hand on the Independence day weekend.. 
But we couldnt have all 4 days.. We had to be back in Mumbai on 17th for some personal reasons which couldnt be avoided.. 
So I set myself exploring around on different websites about locations near mumbai.. I stumble upon a lot of them.. 
We try to check for room availability at locations we think would be apt, but all of them are sold out.. all hill stations or non-beach locations are sold out..

Finally we found something we liked at first sight.. but the location wasnt really what we were looking for.. It was a resort somewhere close to Kihim.. Close to Alibaug, which is the start of the Konkan stretch..

Vivacious Vihigaon...

Vihigaon .. A small beautiful village situated close to kasara near the Mumbai nashik national highway 3..
Thanks to vikas' blog on vihigaon I decided to give it a try..

My mode of transport was the blue eyes boy (wagon r) and my wife my partner for the drive..
Google maps as usual helped planning the best route.. The map showed the distance to be just about 120 kms.. So we decided to leave around 8am..
Here is the snapshot of the route we took..
