Traveller Tales from Nashik
23 October 2017
We took a bus from Mumbai at 9 am in the morning which was supposed to reach Nashik at 2. The bus broke down on the way and we reached at 5. We took an auto from the bus stop till the soma serviced apartment. We were given a room after waiting for 15 minutes. The soma winery is 15 km from the serviced apartment. You can get an auto to drop you till there in about 300 bucks. The tour is for one hour every hour starting from 11:30 am in the morning till 6:30 in the evening. Since we reached pretty late, we opted for the last slot i.e. 6:30 pm. Soma vineyard is farthest of all the vineyards that are there. We were not given a tour of the vineyard since it was pretty dark by then and also muddy due to rains. The inside refinery tour was for half n hr. We tasted 5 wines - 1 red, 2 white, 1 rose, 1 dessert. The restaurant there had some issues so we had to go to York winery for dinner. There was no conveyance available at that point of time. We walked all the way till York in the dark for 2 km. After dinner we managed to get an Uber which dropped us back to the serviced apartment. The details are not enough in the itinerary. People are not very responsive and entertaining.

I was not sure when I heard this trek that we are heading for. But guys I was so wrong, I had the best time of my life. As I said that this was an amazing trek we were provided with all the equipments. I must say everything was very well organized tight from the start of our trek. We reached the base of the village from where we will start our trek. We started our trek towards Ratangad at around 10:30 AM. The views were so amazing that I was awestruck and was cursing myself for not saying yes at the first place. We had an amazing time, the fort was something you should definitely visit atleast once in your life. We also enjoyed some delicious meals during the trek. Our guide was a very friendly person, He described about each of these places in details. We also visited the Amruteshwar Temple at Ratanwadi. The most interesting part came when we had to camp inside the cave at the top of the mountains. We also trek through the dense jungles and the strong wind was something which made us feel the fun. We also hiked to Khutta Pinnacle via Trimbak Darwaja and this is where we concluded our trek. Altogether it was a lot of fun trek. I would really recommend this trek.

I was with my cousin in Mumbai when she told me about this amazing trek. We were four girls who went on this trek. It was a good experience for all of us. Although some of us are beginners it was not that difficult. The tour operator has very well organized everything. Reaching the top of the mountain while passing the strong wind was the best moment for me. The night camp at the cave was another best part. We also had some delicious food during our trek. If you are one of those who love to do some photography this trek is a must do activity for you. Loved it!

Vine touring is famous these days, and yes this is actually great at Nashik, I forced my boyfriend to take me to this place as my college buddies had been there already and were praising like anything. We as a couple enjoyed this tour completely, if you have to enjoy you need to stay for a couple of nights. We were lucky that we visited this place during the vine festival time and so we got to a chance to taste some of the best varieties of vine over here, in fact my boyfriend bought many new varieties of vine for our close friends. Nice place to visit.

It was a nice trek. Being in Nashik on a vacation, we decided to take this. Although we knew the place in and out we wanted to go with professionals as it was about trekking and we were happy to have done that. The only disappointment was that there wasn’t much discounts.
