A must go place! We started our trek early in the morning and the journey through the jungle and waterfalls was breathtaking! There were a few steep climbs too with a scorching sun above us, but all of it is worth when you reach the peak. I would suggest to rest at the peak till evening and take the jeep ride back down, coz it is one hell of adventure! On the way back, park for a while to witness the mesmerizing sunset. It will soothe you of all the pain. The next day we had Nagara Fort on the way back. A picturesque location, i must say! With so many pics, burnt calories and smiles on our faces we returned with a bag full of memories :)

We had an awesome experience in Mandaa reasonable rate, guys dont miss the chance if you are with your friends. Yea it just took around 700Rs each for the amazing jeep ride, and we had so much fun. At times we rested at some point just to capture the beauty of the place, but the real elegance lies in sunset time.
