Dear Trek Lovers,

This is special beautiful waterfall trip & a serene place.

Shivtharghal: 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



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.
