A few friends, a craving to get out into the nature, and a few youngsters out to get their first taste of trekking in the Sahyadris this weekend resulted in an impromptu trek to Kothaligad.
This is a beginners’ trek but the hot weather has made the trek incredibly hard! The initial few kms was walking up the incline through paths paved with fine brown dust. The village of Peth just under the base of the Kothaligad was a delight. We rested at the Hanuman temple and ventured on to the final climb – a very steep climb with rewarding panoramic views, and refreshing cool breeze at the top!
I wish to repeat this trek in the monsoons again. It would be all green and the views would be full of numerous waterfalls!
