Envision floating above monstrous hide of mists, climbing crosswise over superb green slopes, crossing various spouting streams and absorbing ravishing cascades somewhere inside the forested areas. This is the thing that it feels like when you trek in the western ghats during storms.

Before coming here I had no clue about what's in store from this trek, this was my first storm trek and furthermore my first trek in Maharashtra. Despite the fact that I had done several Himalayan treks previously, I was at that point mindful of the way that trekking in western ghats is very not quite the same as trekking in the high piles of the north.
Likewise since this was my first time in Maharashtra and I was going independent from anyone else, so I booked this trek through a trekking organization, Travel Trikon. You can do it all alone too, the trail is very much stamped and very simple to explore.
