Lonavala to Bhimashankar.. A Trek!

Posted by itrekz on July 28, 2008

Hello everyone..
Lonavala to Bhimashankar trek cannot be described anything other than Lost-n-Found sorts!

We did it in less than 2 days.. albeit the last 2 hours eluded us..
We completed.. Lonavala-Valvanda-Kondeshwar-Kusur pathar-Kusur-Savle-Talpaiwadi-Wandre Khind-Pardyarchiwadi-Lower plateau of Bhimashankar in less than 2 days.

That includes lots of missed trails… disoriented trudges in hope to find some village.. some shelter for the night.. never ending.. cloud cover reducing visibility to barely 10 metres.. heavy rains.. Same atop the Bhimashankar plateau the other day and a long walk back to Wandre..

Total distance covered.. approximately 75 kms.. inclusive of all missed trails and sorts..

Heavy rains.. thick fogs.. fully loaded sacks..!

A truly tough venture… and we resisted and stuck it out to our scheme of things.. by not taking a vatadya and roughing it out on our own .. in a terrain completely unknown that was further rendered hostile by incessant showers and reduced visibility!

Kudos to all those who participated and it was each of those 10 members who stuck it out in most adverse conditions..!

Pics… hmm; You must know that we all love our cameras.. and givern the heavy rains. pics were impossible!

Travelogue.. sure.. will follow sooner!
