  • Siri A.

    It was a nice trip especially summiting Kalavantin and Prabalgad in the tight schedule we had. It was hot :) but it was totally worth the effort when you are on both the peaks. Food was great esp the poha and chai. Great and chilled out group to travel with. Looking forward to see you all on other trips.

    ps: can everyone can share their photographs :)

    Thanks for taking care of all of us.
    Base Camp..! Base Camp ..! Base Camp..! Arghh..! :0

    May be there's some sort of connect this place has with Mc Donalds - because I loved it..! :D

    Conquering Kalavantim was Great! But reaching Prabhalgad was like Icing on the Cake.! Descending down Kalavantim and Hiking & Caving on the way to Prabhalgad in the morning was amazing. All of you made it memorable - Chaitanya (So calm,sincere & modest.! :) You must be from some other world..! :D Alien..! :p), Satyam,Rahul (Mere karan,arjun aayengey..! :p Good to see such brotherly bonding), Sonia (Hey Diiii...! :p I'll kill that guy.! Where is the base camp..? :D), Siri (Loved your Hindi.!)
    Srinivas (First man to reach Kalavantim..! :D Happy to see joy on your face after u conquered it.! :)), Abhishek Bajpai,Tapan (Healthy by heart..! :)) Ayush, vani, Karthik (sorry for not interacting more)...thank you all for making it so special..!
