    It was one of the most exciting trip of my life. It was very beautiful, specially the moonlight trekking we did to reach the base village, it was amazing. At mid night they take us to a lake near the base village, which was astoundingly beautiful. Overall I suggest everyone should have this trek in their collection, it is not very difficult, the organisers are also very good people and it is easily one of the best things to do in your weekend.

    It was an amazing and thrilling experience.. We reach lonavala station and from there our guides take us on a jeep to the top.. Its 1 hour off road journey.. That was really fun. And we gotta stop at some point and walk from there to the village which is again 1 hour trek.. I must say that trekking in the middle of the night was so good.. I enjoyed it completely.. We reach the village.. Food was decent enough nothing great.. We go to sleep and wake up at night and wake up early and start our trek to fort. And that wind.. That wind could take you . Seriously it has that much pressure.. I felt so good when the wind was hitting my face. We stay there for some time and trek back to the village and trek back to the vehicle point and back to Mumbai

    Atit our trek organizer was a simple, sincere and very balanced. Had to make a lot of effort just to get together a bunch on diverse individuals and groups at the station, then while hiking and trekking. However, Atit and his co-organizers were smart enough to neither diminish the enthusiasm of trek lovers nor force the laggards to move fast. Dinner was very good and breakfast was provided as promised. Atit also managed to call the Jeeps a lot further near the the base village than originally planned, reducing inconvenience to a lot of group member. I really appreciate the way the whole trek was organized. I'll do another trek with the organizers sometimes soon.

    The food and climate were the best parts of my trek here. Sleeping was a pain and was very disturbing. That could've been managed better. But apart from that the trek was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
