Dear Trek Lovers,


This is special beautiful waterfall trip & a serene place.

Shivthar Ghal is a rare yet refreshing, silent yet soothing, small yet unique place waiting to be explored. The name comes from a cavern in this place (‘Ghal’ is for a cavern in Marathi) where Samarth Ramdas (the guru of ‘Shivaji Maharaj’) used to sit, pray, meditate and more importantly scripted down the famous ‘Dasbodh’ manuscript. Shivthar Ghal is a quiet abode, housing some lush green places, a lovely waterfall and a river and some of the toughest on foot, picturesque mountains. Ideal for trekkers, however the silence and the natural beauty here (which can be seen in all forms possible) can soothe one and all.

Varandhagaht: The Varandha Pass is a ancient route. In 1857 it was widened by the British by dividing Kavlya Fort in two. The fort stands on the border of Pune and Raigad districts and joins Bhor and Mahad. Varandha Ghat is a hill fort about 25km east of Mahad. It lies on the route of the Varandha Pass which crosses the Sahyadris in the Pune district of Maharashtra in India. A 74km long road from Mahad to Bhor passes Varandha Ghat and crosses the pass, reaching a height of around 800m. The drive along the route provides dramatic scenery, looking down onto Konkan and the forested valleys. – God’s own favourite place.

Kavalya Fort: Kawlya is a fort situated on the border of Pune & Raigad district. Looming over the picturesque Varandha Ghat, Kawlya stands sentry over all those who pass through its domain. At a height of 2124 feet. An interesting fact about this fort is that in 1857 this fort was divided in two by British to facilitate the widening of Varandha Ghat.
