Hey Adventure Lovers,
Doesn't it feel amazing to feel the rain on your face and the monsoon winds through your hair. The lush greens all around with the melodius chirps of the birds is all one wants to get refreshed from the daily routines. A good time spent with the splendid company of nature and a great bunch of people is always  refreshing. And what's better than a walk through the Sahyadris in these monsoons with a bunch of adventure enthusiasts. 

Come and join O.A.M. in this fascination to our "Hike to Sondai" on 3rd August 2014 in Karjat region.

The Mountains are calling and we must go!!!!

About Sondai Hike.
Sondai fort stands 6kms west of Karjat overlooking the Karjat-Chowk highway and offers a beautiful view of Morbe Dam, Prabalgad, Irshalgad, Rajmachi, Songiri forts and Matheran mountain range. This was used as watch tower. The base village of Sondewadi stands on a considerable height and can be reached by autos from Karjat. The route is easy and it takes approx 1.5 hrs to reach the top. In monsoon, a couple of rocks on the way becomes slippery. There are 2 water cisterns on machi (at the base of the pinnacle) and steps are carved out of rocks to go on the topmost point where an idol of Sondai Devi stands. Two more water cisterns are on the way and has potable water. Overall it's an ideal one day hike in monsoon for new comers in the trekking field.
