Between Man & Nature - Korigad (B)

Korigad Fort is one of the simplest trekking destinations located in and around Pune. It is a perfect start up point for newbies who have not had a trekking experience before. Just a few steps climb takes you to the very top of the fort.

Korigad was built by Shivaji Maharaj in the year 1657. One of Shivaji’s most loved forts; Korigad was incorporated in Swarajya by the great Maratha king along with a number of other forts like Visapur, Tung, Tikona and Lohgad in the same year of its establishment. In the succeeding years, the fort saw years of battle between the Marathas and the British who failed to take control of the fort until 14th March 1818 when the army led by Colonel Prother dropped a cannot ball where the Marathas stored their ammunition on the fort and finally conquered it.

Located at a distance of about 20kms from Lonavla, Korigad is famous for its fortified structure and the view it offers from the top of the dense forest that surrounds this fort. The village located at the foothills of the fort is called Peth- Shahpur which is situated close to the Amby Valley. There are two ways to reach to the top of the fort. The first way comprises of a series of steps which take you all the way to the top of the fort. The 100 odd steps take about 45 mins to climb and take you along a Ganesh Temple and few small caves on the way to the top of the mountain.

The second route which is for the seasoned To take the other route, you will have to get down at Ambavne which is approximately 2kms away from Peth-Shahapur. From Ambavne the climb is slightly tricky and more adventurous as compared to the first option. You will have to pass through dense jungles and bamboo trees and ascend the short steps carved on large rocks on your way to the top. But this is the shortest way to climb the fort and was used as an escape route by the Marathas in the early years.

The top of the fort is about 3049 feet above sea level and is more of a flat topography. It houses a number of small ponds and two caves, one of which houses an idol of Lord Vishnu. If you enter the fort via the Peth- Shahpur route or better known as the Ganesh Darwaja you will come across a number of old structures. There is also a temple that houses a 4 feet idol of Goddess Korai Devi and a deepmala which is located exactly in front of its entrance. The fort derives its name from this goddess.

You will come across a number of old canons located on the watch towers of the fort. The largest of the lot is named Laxmi and it has been placed right next to the Korai Devi Temple. The top also offers a marvellous view of the surrounding forts namely Tung, Tikona, Matheran, Prabalgarh, Manikgad, Nagphani and the Karnala hills.

Chadar - Joys of Chadar (Lingshed)

What is Chadar?

Chadar is the term used for the layer of ice that is formed over rivers in the winters. While the river flows and the temperature begins to drop, the edges of the river begin freezing, slowly gaining ground and ultimately covering the complete river with a sheet of plexiglass-like layer of ice. Unlike in a Glacier, the river does not freeze into a solid mass but the water still flows under the “Chadar”. This is what makes walking this trek exciting. Fraught with danger as it may sound, we take this challenge precisely to avoid the pitfalls!

For centuries, the people of the Zangskar have been known to walk on this layer of ice to access the outside world for necessities like provisions or make a pilgrimage. Truly, it seems that for the Zanskaris, liberation cannot be attained until they put themselves through such hardships.

Now, its time to be a part of that legend! Truly, because development is making inroads into the rich experience of the hardy Zangskaris and walking the Chadar is just a few years from being a lost skill.

Chasing monsoon - Trek to Avachitgad

How can the monsoons be complete without a trek to that fort near the sea? This weekend, we are headed South of Mumbai – to the Sahyadris in the South Konkan region. 150km SE of Mumbai, nestled along the banks of the Kundalika river, lies the small town of Roha. Travel a further 5km, and we hit upon the village of Medhe. A small temple of Lord Vitthal greets us as we get set along a narrow path that winds upward to Avchitgad.
If you havent fallen in love with the lush, green, gorgeous Sahyadris yet; you will this time. The clouds and rain play with the hills and you cant help remembering:

“While clouds adorn her face like glossy curls
And streams of rain like strings of close-inwoven pearls”


Negotiating the thick vegetation and a couple of confusing turns, we gain steady elevation. An easy 1.5 hours and 1000 ft. later, we chance upon the large entrance to the fort. A rock – cut carving of a horse greets us at the main gate of the fort. The route ahead leads to several water tanks, but the water here is not potable. With frogs, dragon flies and small stone temples nearby, they definitely present a good photo opportunity though! Avchitgad is one of the more elaborate forts with plenty of cannons and fortifications for us to explore. Curiously enough, it is also one of the very few forts with no caves at the top!
If we are lucky enough, the Vitthal temple at Medha will be hosting a lunch, thanks its many devotees. That would be the perfect opportunity for us to feast on delicious home-made rice, curry and pickles after our climb down!
On our way back, we drive along the road for a while; admiring the fury of the rain and the lashing waves. As we pass Roha, Nagothane, the sun (if not raining) plays hide-and-seek with the clouds and reluctantly disappears into the horizon somewhere along the way.

“And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils”

Climbing Elbrus - North to South Traverse

 

At an altitude of 5642Mtrs (18510Ft), Mt Elbrus is the highest mountain in Europe. Set in the N Caucasus Mountains, in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay–Cherkessia of Russia, near the border with Georgia, is considered as one of the 7 Summits and is much sought after mountain by many who dream to achieve the "7 Summits" Goal - climbing the highest peak on each of the 7 continents which includes climbing Mt. Aconcagua in South America and Mt. Everest in Nepal.

Amongst all the seven summits, Elbrus is one of the easier catches only more difficult than Mt. Kilimanjaro of Tanzania, though it comes with its own challenges of being very cold and ofcourse dealing with altitude sickness. 

A climb to Mt.Elbrus is suitable for experienced trekkers and mountaineers who have been above 5000Mtrs. This needs a fair amount of fitness and ability to withstand cold.

Cycle South Mumbai

To the Mumbaites, it’s known as Town. Others have drawn parallel and loosely termed it ‘Manhattan of Mumbai’. It’s also the most historic part of the city. But how many of you really looked up to admire the sculpture of Flora Fountain while dashing past it on your way to the station or know that the Fountain is considered the ‘Milestone 0km’ for Mumbai?

Thousands of people pass through the gates of Victoria Terminus everyday including perhaps you. But did you know that this Gothic revival style architecture took 10 years to build and resembles St Pancras station in London? Or that the St Thomas Church at the beautiful Horniman’s Circle was the first church to be built in the city?

You have always experienced the chaos, traffic, sea of people, road side vendors, street food and the regular hustle-bustle of everyday office life here. But on Sunday mornings when the offices are closed, the whole area turns magical. The slanting morning sun lightens up parts of these ancient buildings and then you can see the exquisitely carved sculpture of progress on the dome of the VT or the tiger at its entrance, which you had never noticed before. There’s silence everywhere, not a soul present in the lanes and by-lanes of “Town” and you can hear the quiet rustling of the trees around. A hearty breakfast at a corner Irani joint and you will know that time never really had moved forward here.

Our city cycling trips around Town will let you experience this and much more. You will know facts and history of your favourite city which will make you see the city in a new light. Add to that the morning breeze from the sea and a long quiet ride on empty roads….and you will come back totally re-charged for yet another week of hectic office life.

Cycling Mumbai to Goa

Mumbai, Bombay, Heptanasia or anything? Who cares? You perch on the saddles of your bike, pedal to the Ferry Wharf and poof! Sail away from the commotion called ‘Metro’, pedal to a far away land that soaks the sun, promises all the joy and relaxation for every corporate collar! But not before you have earned it!

The Mumbai to Goa cycling ride covers a distance of approximately 560Kms over 7 riding days with a maximum of about 110Kms on one day. The ride begins at Dadar TT in Mumbai, sticks to the coastal road of the state and concludes at Mapusa, Goa. Each day is divided into the 2 sessions of riding; the morning and the evening, the morning session being critical to the ride and covering distances.

It is important to note that due to the topography of the state, the coastal road here is not just a plain flat ride along a shimmering coast, but offers multiple challenges as we climb small ghats and whizz past small towns and villages, savoring sights, smells, views, history and most important of all, cuisine!

The ride has been designed to be as carefree for the riders giving them the freedom (collectively) and though there will be daily targets, there may be everyday adjustments to the destinations. One destination however, remains sacrosanct in our minds – Goa! The route offers plenty and regular opportunities to stop by for the night or for lunch. The Konkan coast is dotted with exquisite beaches and retreats that offer experiential accommodations like Home Stays, Guest Houses and some hotels while the ride will be equipped with tents and sleeping gear too. We do not plan to make any advance bookings other than Goa, as there usually are lesser crowds on weekdays. Most meals are delicious home cooked fare of vegetarian. You do have an option of trying the Sea food fare too. Afternoon siestas are best enjoyed  in quaint peaceful village temples or schools or local community halls or simply under trees canopy.

Kuari Pass Trek

Kuari which means “doorway” is a Himalayan high mountain pass situated in the Garhwal region of northern India, south of the Tibetan border and on the western rim of the “Nanda Devi Sanctuary” Biosphere Reserve and falls in the Chamoli district. The Kuari Pass Trek found fame in the early 1900’s when intrepid adventurers and mountaineers such as Lord Curzon, Eric Shipton and Bill Tilman used the passage in their pioneering explorations of the region. The Kuari Pass trek is  known as The Curzon Trail (named after the former British Viceroy Of India “Lord Curzon”).

Among the several things that Lord Curzon did in India, the hands-down winner is exploration and popularising of a marquee trek route starting from Joshimath to Kuari Pass in the Garhwal Himalayas. At an altitude of 4264 meters, Kuari Top is like an amphitheatre where some of the stalwart peaks of Himalayas take stage. The 7000 meters club includes the Kamet (7756m),Trishul (7120m), Chaukhamba (7128m), and the great divine peak of Nanda Devi (7817m) and its twin Nanda Devi East (7434m). More peaks make an equally imposing appearance – Nanda Ghunti, Hathi Ghoda Parbat, Neelkanth, Dronagiri, Mukut Parbat, Mana, Rishi Pahad, and Changbang, to name a few. The Winter Kuari Pass trek gives you a chance to view this impressive skyline of these mighty mountains from close quarters.

Peb

Moonlight Trek to Peb Fort

Peb fort though small (474mtrs, 1554Ft), is a very exciting climb. The trail runs through various terrain, but is easy to follow. This small peak provides the attraction of seeing the small toy train from the other side of the valley. The trail that runs across the fort continues to the railway track under Panorama Point in Matheran.
A trek to the fort is ideal for one days’ outing but attempting the climb as night is quite tricky. The top of the fort has caves and is largely uninhabited except for the local sadhus. Fresh water is available on the top but the approach to the same is a small tunnel about 2 Ft in diameter. One has to crouch in the 8 Ft tunnel to get access to potable water. The secret to this tunnel is provided by other similar openings on either side of the large cave. The “ L” shape of the tunnel prevents any light to reach the cave, which at the end is a meditation room for the yogis. Sometimes this pitch dark den is visited by bats.
Sitting at the entrance of the main cave, one can easily spot Panvel Lake and other the peaks of Chanderi and Mhasmal to the right. The city of Mumbai appears as a faint glow of light at the horizon.

On Cloud Nine - Trek to Naneghat

A carpet of lush green grass over plateaus, an easy access to the main road, gurgling streams of fresh water, small ponds to frolic in, short walks to keep your feet active and the climb up to Jivdhan fort is the highlight of this trip.

The approach to Nane Ghat is a small diversion right of the 60Km milestone from Kalyan on the road to Nagar. The thumb-like massif of Nane Ghat called Nanacha Angatha, is very prominent from here. Set in the back drop of Jivdhan fort and Vanar Lingi pinnacle, Nane Ghat lies in between the Kalsubai and Bhimashankar range, offering great views of many peaks on either side of the Sahyadris.

Due to its location, rich natural settings and the given season, Malshej Ghat Rd, Nane Ghat along with Jivdhan becomes an ideal location to enjoy activities like Cycling, Hiking, Cave dwelling and Rappelling. A carpet of lush green grass over plateaus, an easy access to the main road, gurgling streams of fresh water, small ponds to frolic in, short walks to keep your feet active and the climb up to Jivdhan fort is the highlight of this trip.

Historically, Nane Ghat, (830Mtrs/2724Ft), a pass, was frequently used to descend to the plains and access the then famous port of Kalyan. Its use as a trade route dates as far back as the 1st century BC as noted by the inscriptions in the rock cut cave. Nane Ghat cave has inscriptions as old as 2200Yrs as also a large Stone Pot used to collect toll in those days. There are some Ganesha Idols at the pass which is barely 2mtrs across at its peak.

Nane Ghat and the surroundings are rife with all that Mother Nature has to offer. From the base you can see clouds kiss the rock massif and funnel through the pass. There is expanse atop the Nane Ghat plateau to run around and even play a game of catch or ball. Many village folk use the same trail, so you may learn their way of life, talking to them or chat with fellow trekkers who slowly make their way up the pass.

Rock Climbing - Manori

The setting is idyllic. Black rock cliffs braced by the surf, a bird of prey hovering over the coast, colourful fishing trawlers casting their nets, crabs making occasional appearances on the moist stones. Manori is not very far from the bustling crowds of Mumbai, yet there is no noise except that of the sea, breeze & your very own heart beat. There may not be a better place to begin your tryst with rock climbing, a sport that offers challenges, tests your endurance & perseverance, brings you to the edge of your phobias & addresses the inner urge to succeed. Manori is known only for its beach front & few of the resorts occupied by weekenders. We are far away from them.


Whether you take the ferry or drive to Manori, the surrounding of Manori is like Goa

; relaxed & laid-back. This small fishing region has some of the best cliffs to begin climbing. Even if you are tired, you may just sit under a cool cove of the rocks, stare at the sea endlessly & contemplate life; a perfect mix of action & relaxation.

As we walk to the cliffs, our anxiety rises & very quickly we reach over the edge not expecting to see some 30-50ft drops. Setting up gear takes a few moments & then we begin with the instructions. This is followed by the demonstration, few tips & tricks. One may find it very easy to watch someone climb, but once you are into the harness & move towards the rock, your heart begins to pound, fingertips sweating. Touch the rock & your confidence is shaken. This is the moment of truth.

With continuous instructions from the guide & amidst shouts of encouragement from fellow climbers, you slowly make your way up. You may smoothly go past various crux & reach the top, but chances are your nerves will be tested all along. Fingers turn soar, muscle ache & you reflect on your physical self. However more of mental strength is required to sideline your fitness to keep at it. You hold on to the rock with your dear life but when it is time to give up, you let out a loud scream. For a moment you may see your life go past you in a whiz, but the rope holds & you heave a sigh of relief. They say that real climbing begins to be fun only after you take your first fall. Trust in the system & a little bit of resilience is what is required to finish the day on the top. There is no other pleasure than reaching the top.

Your day out is made safe with some of the best equipment employed & a lovely environ for you to excel in. Rock climbing cannot be learnt in a day, but if you like your experience you will want to be back, & challenge yourself to better challenges.

Trek to Prabalmachi

A lovely trek close to Mumbai. A quick drive and a walk through dry deciduous forest. Enjoy a day's outing; challenge your mind and body out of the usual routine.

Prabalgad, was one of the sites chosen for developing a hill station by the British, but lost to Matheran due to lack of water supply. The fort is easily spotted on the left hand side outside Panvel as you travel towards Pune, either by the Expressway or the lovely old NH4.

The trek starts at a remote village of Thakurwadi through a well marked trail through a forest. It continues uphill over a terrain that is mixture of soil, rocks and small boulders, but all covered. Midway through the trek there is the small hamlet of Prabalmachi, where one can rest and consider walking further. It takes about an hour and a half to get here. Until this point the trek is suitable for beginners and people of all age groups.

At Prabalmachi ,one can take any one of the two options:

1. Trek up to the exciting but steep and Kelve Teen (Popularly known as Kalavantin Durg) over its steep rocky stairase, or

2.Trek further through a forest then into a narrow gap over large boulders to the Top of Prabalgad to get the awe-inspiring views of Kelve Teen and neighbouring Matheran and other pinnacle.

One can wait at Prabalmachi for others to return, if they do not wish to explore beyond. It's a cool resting spot.

Lunch at either Parabalmachi or Prabalgad.

Walk back the same way and return to Mumbai by 1800Hrs.

Waterfall Rapelling - Pali

About Waterfall Rappelling

The rains bring about a dramatic change in the outdoors and one of the striking features that calls all of us are the Waterfalls. A childhood fantasy of drenching yourself below one is un-containable. This urge refuses to go away even as an adult. While many spend hours below the falls, it only takes imagination to understand what it would be like to be in the midst of it, before the water touches the ground!

Rappelling is the technique of descending a rope by using friction to safely control the rate of descent. While dry rappelling is done over cliff faces or small rock faces, Waterfall Rappelling involves coming down a cliff face or rock face with gallons of water pouring down on you.
Strong safety anchors, appropriate safety gear, safety supports and learning the right technique makes this activity very safe and exciting. The adrenaline rush is tremendous and the feeling exhilarating!

Odati Adventures has been conducting this activity for the past 8 years and brings to you amongst the best gear, judgement and trained hands to make sure that you are not left with any question marks in your head as you look down the waterfall and imagine getting lost in it for a few moments before touch down.

Conditions of the water define which face we use. The top is approachable so that once you are down you can simply walk up in an enhanced state of mind. Every slip others take fills you with slight bit of doubts, but each slip you take makes you more confident of the system and then on you go down the waterfall with a feeling of fulfilment. Your 2nd attempt is always better when you are ready to experiment with the water even more; hopping in the middle of the full force, shouting your lungs out expressing your ecstasy.

Monday morning, office becomes a place to tell other people how they wasted a weekend sitting at home while you were at a high. The stories will flow for a few more weeks….you will surely remember this as one of the best adventures for a long time to come.

Odati Adventures deploys the best equipment available for all its technical activities and has an impeccable record in conducting activities that need a very high standard of safety, attention, management
