Hope you've enjoyed an adventurous outdoor experience this monsoon. In case you haven't, shiver not! We have organized a rendezvous with the cold at the north most fort of Mumbai,because winter isn't coming, it is here and it has asked for your company.
Our trip begins with a rustic ride that is not very far from Mumbai. We stroll across a farming village and let the scents welcome us to a rural life. We hike through a sleepy forest whose wilderness awakens our senses. We adjust our sights and explore our route to the top of the hill as the forest wakes up with the passing light. At the top, we let the cool breeze carry away our sweat as we setup our campsite. After burning calories, we treat ourselves to a nutritious meal, cooked on firewood tribal style. Then we spend the next hour exploring the fort ruins with the night wind whispering in our ears. Finally, we relax and enjoy a calm, cold night in the outdoors chilling with the oncoming winter.
About the location:
Distant yet near is a town called Palghar, it is on the northern side of Mumbai and is a convenient outdoor site from the hustle bustle of routine Mumbai life. Villages of Palghar region are closely associated with the Warli tribe lifestyle and their well known paintings. Few miles from Palghar city is our spot of interest, a forest which is regarded as a blessing by the nearby villages. Forming a range, there are many mountains in this region covered with vegetation and wildlife. The forest is home to significant species of trees and plants that provide for the people and is a home to elusive animals including monkeys, reptiles, deers and a few more. This forest is a good example of a harmonious coexistence between man & nature.
