Lohagadum Lonavalayum pinnae njaanum
From: jacob.varghese@...
Date: Mon Aug 5, 2002 12:52 pm


We(Satbir,Bhaskar and Myself) took the 11.40 passenger from CST and
reached Malavli at 0340..Slept there till ~0600 and then went to the parking
lot near Bhaja caves where we met another group from Thane..There were 5 of
them ..students...and one of them(Anish Korde) was visiting Lohagad for the
fifth time(First time he visited when he was 5)...So we decided to skip the
caves for the time being and joined them... Anish is an ardent trekker and have
trekked almost all the places..The others were Sourabh(black belt,studying
law),Girish(he is doing a project and he needed some fotos of Pavana dam and
this was the basic reason behind their trek),Varun(11th) and Sai(BA?)..

So we took of at around 0630 ..the climb up was rather easy except that my
shoes were a lil bit slippery at places...
We reached the village at around 0830....It was misty and even though the fort
was just above our heads(Anish told that) we couldn't make it out..After tea we
resumed walking and reached the cave at the top at abt 0900...Then it was
breakfast time..It was very very foggy was the visibility was very poor..We
roamed around looking for the path to Vinchu katta and couldnt locate it..We
were completely trusting on Anish's insights as he had been there many a
time..Finally we reached one rocky patch which Anish thought was the way
down..It was very slippery and dangerous and we almost decided to quit..But
then the map came to our rescue..We tried to figure out the way..We saw the
Hathi pond and then walked again as per the map and finally saw the way down
;-)..But the fog was still there and that breathtaking view which I was hoping
for was not there.;-(

We started climbing down..Three of us had come down the ledge ...Anish
and Satbir was on the ledge and it was then when HE came...He first visited
Anish and had a look at him and then turned to me,saw the packet I was
having..I knew that I was in trouble..he leaped down and I threw the
packet(Camera) to Anish..He bouncced back..Anish threw the packet back to me
..he came back and almost had it..But I was holding it very tight so he
couldn't take it away..I again threw it to Anish..he went back..Then Anish
tried someting diff ..he took the camera out and threw the cover away and hid
the camera inside his clothes.HE was taken aback for a second..But soon he
found out the next thing to go for...The Bino's hanging around Anish's
neck...Anish saw that he was aimng for that and threw it to me and started
shouting to me in Marathi...I was stunned for a second and couldn't comprehend
a single word ..Luckily Varun was there and he picked up stones (this was what
Anish was shouting!!!)..Then I too picked up stones and all of us shooed him
away...A nice lil incident..;-)

Then we went to the end and after spending some time there went back to
the caves and had some food..Suddenly the fog cleared a lil bit and we rushed
out to take some snaps...managed to take a few before the next invasion of fog
..It was time for the Thane group to return as they had some other engagements
on Sunday..So after exchanging our contact details we bid farewell to them..I
wanted to get a snap of Vinchukatta so went there agian but had to return
without luck..Then we satrted our return journey..It was abt 2 - 2.30...We
stayed sometime in the waterfall down the caves and then went to the caves..It
was 5 ..We asked whether we can stay in the caves but were turned down..After
seeing the caves we sat down to have some snacks..We thought of pushing off to
Lonawala then itself and spend the night there..When we reached the parking lot
we enquired whether we will get any place to stay..and we hit the jackpot...we
were taken to a nearby house and there we got rooms..after keeping our luggages
there we went out walking again..We sat down on the overbridge above the
express highway enjoying the cool breeze untill we were whistled away by the
highway patrol..then we walked till the railway staion and came back ..It was
pretty dark by the time we came back to our room...There we had bath and had a
nice lil chat with the houseowner.. Then came the dinner...EXCELLENT
chappatis..It was soo good that I strecthed my stomach muscles to there
limit!!! ;-)After dinner we retired deciding that we will take the 6:45 train
to Lonavla..


At abt 5:45 the landlord came with a torch and woke us up...We got redy by
6:35 and ran to the station lest we miss the train...We were just in time for
the 06:56 local to Lonavla...We reached Lonavla ,had breakfast and went to the
ST stand to catch a bus to INS Shivaji...The next bus was at 0830(the buses to
INS are at 0630,0730,0830 etc) so we decided to walk to Ryewood park and catch
the bus from there..spent some time there in the park amidst the towering
trees..there was some sort of NSS drill going on..watched that for a while and
walked to the bus stop...We passed Walwan dam and Bhushi dam on our way to
INS...We went inside the restricted area and when the guard came asking for the
passes we got down and walked back...Meanwhile it had started raining and it
was to be like that the WHOLE day..
We didn't know exactly where to go and what to see..We had heard abt
Tiger's leap,Lion's point and Duke's nose(aka Nagphani)..So we started asking
people abt these places...We met a guard and that guy caught hold of one
village boy passing by and he gave us the req info with the aditional warning
'When U tie the rope please tie it properly,last month two people died when
trying to get down!!)..We walked ,walked and walked first through the
muddy,marshy area then through the green pady fields and finaly reached
Kruvande village..From there it was just 20 minutes to the base..then it came
the climb..It was rather easy ..Fog was with us and when we reached the top we
were toatlly covered with fog...with viibilty abt 3-4 meters..We had some
snacks there and walked towards another peak..There was a small Shiva temple
around which the rope was to be tied so we can go down..But the Poojaari there
said it is not allowed now after the tragedy last month...two doctors had lost
their lives after slipping ....We stood there for sometime hoping for the fog
to clear. But after sometime when it was clear that it is not going to happen
in near future we sated back..We were back in the Kruwande village at 1230...

We decided to go back to INS shivaji and then visit Lion's point and go
directly to Khandala keeping Bhushi dam for the next trip..We reached INS
shivaji at 1330 and asked for directions for Lion's point.It was abt 4 kms and
we decide to walk all the way up...again it was misty and we could get proper
views which we were expecting although we got to se a couple of waterfalls on
the way...Also we caught a glimpse of Bhushi dam and the crowd there..We
reached some place near Lion's point at around 1430..There were a couple of
vendors selling eatables and we had a double omlette and tea there..Fog was
very thick at this point...We decided against walking further ..There was a ST
bus at 1530 and we deicide to take that..We waited till 1545 and then we bus
came ,but the driver didn't bother to stop and left us fuming!!!We tried to get
a lift but nobody was in a mood to 'lift' three of us ..;-(Now we had no other
option except walking back....We walked for abt 10 minutes ..passed the
waterfall from the airforce dam when a truck came and lifted us up...Thus we
trucked back from Lion's point ..It was abt 4-430 when we reached near Bushi
dam..We tried to get a glimpse of the dam and it was inviting...But we had
decided to skip it for the time being..But it was not the case to be...Being a
sunday eveing the road to Lonavala was jam packed and the traffic was moving at
a snail's pace..After some time I lost my patience and thought of going to
Bhushi dam skipping Khandal...Bhaskar agreed but Satbir was having some knee
problem so he told he will hold back and meet us at the staion at 7...
So both of us set out together...The water from the dam flows out over a
set of steps ..The place was swarmed by people...We spent some time there,
clicked sme photos and then went back...The truck was nowhere in sight now...So
we started running..After sometime we could spot the truck again...But seeing
the traffic jam we decide againt climbing in and continued on foot...There were
numerous ,small waterfalls all over the place..We had a smaal break and had tea
after which we went to Walwan dam.We walked over the dam and finally reached
Lonavla....Then we brought some Chickies and went to the staion where we found
Satbir waiting for us..It was 7:45..Bangalore -gandhidam express was at 8 and
we procured tickets and ran to the platform..Luckly we got some place to sit
down for a while....After Khandala we could see Khopli town fully lit up down
in the valley.....

Then nothing much..kalyan(2200),Dadar(2330) and Kandivili(0010)..We said
goodbye to Bhaskar and proceeded to LA...Took bath ,had food ad slept
...ThatzitT.
