OUR NEXT TREK: Overnight Monsoon Trek to Anjaneri on 29-30th Aug 2015
Some Info about the Mountain:
Anjaneri (1300m/4264ft) is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Hanuman. The hill is actually named after his mother Anjani Mata who meditated on this mountain in her quest to get a child. A temple dedicated to Anjani Mata is located on the first plateau of the hill. A small pond is also situated on this plateau. At the topmost point of the mountain we find yet another temple dedicated to Anjani Mata with child Hanuman. Other points worth visiting are Sita Ashram, Hanuman cave, Jain caves. There are rock steps at three different levels on the hill which make the climb easy for beginners. The pinnacles of ‘Navardev’, ‘Sasu’ and ‘Navri’ add to the charm of the hill range. It would be a very refreshing experience to do this trek amidst soothing greenery and cool windy rains.

Some Trek Rules:
Climbing the Mountain is definitely an enjoyable adventure, provided we all follow some discipline. One must follow these basic rules strictly so that the outing can be enjoyed in a safe way:
1] Mountains are a place of abundant natural beauty. Hence, it is our duty to keep the place free of garbage. So do not litter. One is expected to dump all wrappers/chewing gums/etc in his/her own bag. In fact it would not be a bad idea to clear any plastic wrapper/bottle lying on the trekking path. A separate pouch/plastic bag must be carried for this purpose.
2] Trekking is a healthy habit. So Smoking has to be strictly prohibited. Consumption of alcohol/drugs is also banned. Avoid spitting Paan/Gutkha. Who would want to have such addictions when the beauty of nature is itself intoxicating!
3] Care should be taken so as not to harm the natural surroundings including trees, plants and animals in any manner whatsoever. Even they feel the pain just as we humans do. Value Life!
4] Learn to detach yourself from the city life and be one with Nature. Don't disturb the peaceful environment of the hills by making unnecessary noises or playing loud music - the birds and animals might get scared/provoked. Instead listen to the call of the Mountain - Listen to Your HeartBeat ♥ :)
5] Most of the hills and valleys are an integral part of our history. It is a treasure, which we are duty bound to preserve for our future generations. Therefore, defacing/damaging historical monuments/temples and indulging in Graffiti is strongly discouraged.
6] Respect the local people and villagers. They are kind and helpful. While on the trekking path, always make way for the villagers first. It is quite a humbling experience to know about hardships faced by the villagers living in different parts of the Sahyadri Mountains. Even then, most of the villagers will host you gracefully when you happen to visit their small homes.
7] Apart from the general fun and sense of adventure that Trekking provides, it is also aimed at increasing self-confidence, build unity among participants and create long lasting friendships. Hence, while trekking, it is very important to be a Team that stays united throughout.
