April 2013, Alone (on motorcycle)
Mumbai - Mahad - Varandh Ghat - Ambevadi - Korle
The Varandh ghat road is one of the best mountain crossings in this area. Villagers at the base of Kenjalgad were not friendly when I reached late in the night, but turned out to be nice once I got to know them. You can sleep in a small school. The climb up to Kenjalgad is about 30 minutes if you find the correct route. The views of Dhom Dam and Raireshwar plateau are rewarding. Not much shelter on the hill, be prepared for a hot day and take your own water. A visit to Raireshwar plateau, where Shivaji took an oath for Swarajya, is possible. I returned via Bhor - Wai.
