‘Father and Daughter, Husband and Wife and A Flock of Good Friends with Life Away From Life’
Indeed! You experience a different life away from your casual life when you move out to one of the most beautiful treks in the world.
It’s true that the season for adventure is all the year round, but monsoon treks in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra is the most unique activity and unbeatable experience in the world full of adventure.
Trek to the smallest hill station located on the mighty Western Ghats, Matheran is the Live heaven on earth, where vehicles do not run and everybody only walks.
This lovely two hours trek to Matheran begins from Dodhani, a small village which still believes in green paddy fields. The trek takes you through the simple lifestyle of the hill people of Maharashtra and then through different surprises of nature.
A small hut under a tree and besides green paddy fields, cattle grazing in open slopes of the mountain, waterfalls gushing down in excitement, noisy winds yet peaceful, mesmerising forest trails, rain showers and above all the panoramic views of the mountains from the sunset point of Matheran are the unique experiences this trek offers.
Treks do not ask people, what is your age, where do you come from, which language you speak or what is your motto in life; Anyone with zeal to connect with nature, to observe everything around and to learn and grow in a natural environment can trek anytime in their lifespan. Treks give you more than you expect from them.
Father and daughter, husband and wife and a flock of good friends joined us for Matheran trek yesterday. These wonderful people made the trek easy and more interesting. We understand the world even more better after meeting different people in a natural sphere.
You know what best one day trek did ?
It bound us all together in unity yet giving us freedom to be one self at the same time.
This is the beauty of one day treks in Maharashtra.
