Mahuli is about 70 km from Thane and the village is absolutely boondocks. The hills were half hidden by the mist and it began to rain
The trek actually begins from here although we had to walk a few km from the village
The foothills were absolutely lovely as you can see!
Thats my son Sounak with two of his mates. I could walk this road for ever and ever ..
Very soon we came to wade across this mountain stream
Before crossing the stream, we explored the area along the banks as it was so beautiful but lost precious minutes as the peak with the fort on top was still a few hours away
Crossed the fast flowing stream and started the climb
We came to this lovely glade and tarried awhile ..
and then it began to rain again.
Bit apprehensive with the kids with me, decided to turn back as it was getting late, the mountain path began to fill up with water very quickly with the rain
The stream had also begun to swell ..
So maybe another time, another day!
