Description

Yes, you read that right! We’re taking you on a trek to an undisclosed location in Maharashtra. Why the secret? Because the location is so pure that we don't want its beauty to be affected.

But, trust us… it sure is a secret worth keeping. The trek route goes through a lush green and thick jungle and that's what makes it one of the best treks in Maharashtra.

About the location: The trek will be hosted near a beautiful coastal town that is nestled between the sea to the west and the mountains to the east. This region has the maximum number of forts as compared to other regions and yes, you’ll be trekking to a fort.
The top of this fort is adorned with thick vegetation. You can spot some relics of Portuguese origin during the trek. Sounds intriguing, doesn't it?

Difficulty level:
The difficulty level of this trek is EASY.
This means the ease of climbing up to the summit is Easy.
Uphill is approx 2 hours of trekking while downhill is shorter. There will be stops during the trek for rest and rehydration.

At every summit, you are welcomed to the most majestic views & at the end of every trek, you learn that you are taking back home lifetime memories

Trek Gyann / Attitude: Staying open minded, positive & faithful
A trek in the forest requires for one to stay positive and open minded at all times regardless of the situation. Mind you, this is not a picnic but a trek in the mountains. Mother nature could choose for the weather and environment to be tough or easy on us. However it is important for us to stay grounded and keep our heads over our shoulders, not to panic and to keep confidence in the decision of the trek leaders.
