Hello Pune!

Muddie Trails presents a mouth watering experience on the beautiful forts of Lonavala. Hike up Lohgad fort (Easy trek) and see one of the most beautiful valleys of Western ghats filled with mist and clouds. Lohgad also has thick ridge walk that will lead trekkers to punishment point - a cliff of the hill (that you see on the event image)

In the evening, chill yourself in the pristine Pawna Lake along the camp, warm yourself close by the bonfire & treat yourself by tasting amazing local cuisine.

Next day, trek to Visapur fort (Easy trek) and enjoy panoramic view of Pawna lake, villages and the valley. An icing on the cake is a visit to marvelous 2000 year old Karla caves of Lonavala. These ancient caves were built by Buddist monks for meditation.

  • We shall start from Pune after our breakfast, short journey of around 2 hours to Lohgad base

  • There is a tomb, temple, and some ruins above. There are many different ponds which used to be water supply to the people back then.
  • Finally we will head to the thick ridge that is special to this fort, the corner of which is used to punish people committing crimes.
  • We shall start descending after this and reach the base late afternoon.
  • The we will head to our beautiful camp on the banks of Pawna lake and have well deserved Lunch.

  • Revel in the warmth of campfire after this.
  • Have hot & delicious veg/non-veg dinner together.
  • Social gathering & group activities through the night, play our music, sing and dance.
  • Rest in the tents (covered tents to protect from monsoon rains)


Day 2 (Sunday):

  • Start the day with hot breakfast around 9 AM
  • Drive to the base of Visapur Fort and start climbing. On a rainy day, we have to walk/climb through small streams and waterfalls to reach the top. The fort offers a panoramic view of a wide range of hills covered in a thick blanket of green.
  • Get back to the base and have self-sponsored Lunch

The guide Rakesh Ranjan, was inexperienced ,lacked leadership quality, and most of all was physically unfit for the role of a trek guide. To begin with, the schedules bus pickup was at 6pm, I understand it was raining, but he reached 1 hour late, didn't share bus location inspite of repeated request by multiple people, as a result we were not able to locate the bus, and the bus started 1hr 15 min late.All pickups were only done by 10:30 and all people were extremely hungry but Rakesh stopped the bus at the worst of the restaurants, where the food was unhygienic and washrooms were worse than public toilets. Basically I ended up starving that night.There was an elderly man in the trip who got the last seat, he had back issues and he repeatedly requested Rakesh to arrange front seat for him. But Rakesh didn't make any proper efforts for him and eventually the elderly couple had to cancel the trip and drop off mid way. Basically he lacked leadership quality totally.For breakfast on 5th the place was decent.No complaints there.Lunch on 5th was self sponsored so no complaints again.For dinner we selected a nice place but Rakesh had major budget constraints, we were ready to pay extra on top of his budget allocated but again that place was cancelled.Major disappointment there!! And we ended up wasting 1+ hour in deciding the place. Amazing display of decision making but Rakesh yet again.After dinner we reached homestay at 12pm, the homestay was fine , but again basic water also wasn't provided even after multiple request. How can someone be so inconsiderate? At this point Rakesh has started ignoring our complaints and wasn't giving any response. When we confronted him , he behaved rudely and called me as a negative personality, Seriously!! How unprofessional!!When trek started at 8!m, we continuously walked for 2hours before we got the breakfast. Poha served for breakfast was fine but tea was pathetic.Throughout the trek Rakesh was lack luster and was the last one struggling to walk.His health wasn't good I guess. There weren't any instructions from him and in light of this, people were going in all random directions. We had no idea when to come back and where to assemble.Clear lack of leadership there.It looked like we were guiding Rakesh rather than him doing it for us.Overall the trip could have been much better of we had a responsible , energetic and leader kind of guide. Would not prefer coming by Muddies.com ever again. - by Subhash Sahni for Dudhsagar Trek with Colva Beach of Goa organized by Muddie Trails .
