There is no joy greater than taking a walk amidst a lush green forest, silently taking in the sights and sounds it has to offer you. The monsoons bring about a complete overhaul to the Sahyadris range of Mountains. The brown dried plateaus are covered in a carpet of green as new life abounds in this region. And it is absolutely fascinating to become a spectator and watch life bloom in its entire splendor.
Come and join O.A.M. in this fascination to our "Hike to Sagargad" on 13th July 2014 in Alibaug.
The Mountains are calling and we must go!!!!
About Sagargad Hike.
Sagargad also known as Khed Durg lies in the Alibaug Region. The Sagargad fort can be accessed for Alibaug, a prominent town on the Konkan coastline. This fort can be seen from the Alibaug-Pen road and is identified by Vanartok Pinnacle which stands adjacent to the fort. A prominent pinnacle, Vanartok is a quite a regular climbing spot amongst the Sahyadri climbers. Sagargad, which is situated on a hill can be approached by three different routes; Khandala route, Vaghede route & Bail Khind route.
