Raging with Torrents @ Rajmachi Trek -4th July

Trek to Rajmachi-Shrivardhan fort+Manaranjan fort - Kondane Caves-Ulhas Valley

Not for guys who don't like Getting Drenched in Rain & waterfalls , Don't like Walking in the Clouds .

Rajmachi is one of the most scenic treks in the Sahyadris. Picturesquely located between Khandala and Lonavla, Rajmachi actually consists of two forts Shrivardhan and Manaranjan.


At the base of the Mountain is the serene Tungarli Lake surrounded by waterfalls while Kondhavi Caves can be found on top of the fort. There is a beautiful temple of Kal-Bhairavi between the twin forts. The view from top of the Fort is panoramic comprising Ulhās River, Duke’s Nose,

This Trek has a punch! 


Kondana Caves

There are 8 Buddhist caves of the Hinayana Buddhist tradition which is a one hour trek from the Kondane village near Karjat. The Kondana caves enclose sculptures, vihara and stupas of ancient Buddhist architecture.


Although there was an earth quake in the early 1900s many stupas, the front entrance and the floor of the caves were damaged. But what remains intact is the beautiful Chaitya that welcomes you to the rock cut caves that were created around 200 BC

    what an awesome trek it was ...
    letters are refusing to form words as they know they cant describe the beauty of nature in any word
    the very warm welcoming songs of the birds,resounding in our minds along after we walk away from them
    hide & seek played by the cold breeze ,and the naughty rain
    every step forward was leading to the hidden beauty of the nature (though it was very difficult to step forward )
    the ancient monuments -which were teaching the law of impermanace
    time spent in the lap of nature are blissful,sort of happy dream ...

      the game we played in train to and fro ..and guys (bharat,ram,vamsi & aisharya )we won though they wont agree with us ..cheers ..!

      it could never have been possible without the insistence and support of my friends ..manideep ,phani,pushya and sai ..
      and my twin sister ..neelima THE IRON LADY (if i describe her in one word )
      a very special thanks to the big brother of the trek ..KARTHIK -
      who turned out to be a photographer when ever we wanna capture our momemnts
      who turned out to be a cheer leader(with loads of energy)when ever we are low..
      who turned out to be an organiser to organise things properly
      and thank you and very glad to meet each and every person in the group ..and for lovely moments ..
      our group is a garland made up of different flowers ..

    This was an amazing trek with lot of fun. Nice to see good people around. Though there is no rain while Trekking. Its drizzles little bit while Trailing to remind us its a monsoon trek. Had lot of fun in train nd many of the people missed fun at the temple with great view. Had nice shower in pond. Though there were some first time trekkers they did a great job need to apperiacte them a lot. Enjoyed a place without power nd pollution. While trailing birds humming are awesome. If it rained we may have nice Waterfalls while trekking nd trailing. Thanks a lot to Manideep, Geetanjali and Prasad for Hosting such a nice event with superb team.

    For the ones who have already made payments and who are about to pay . Kindly read all the details on this page. This is neither too easy nor difficult trek. Hope you're all aware of monsoon trekking . It'll be slippery and raining all throughout the way. You should compulsory bring a poncho or raincoat, good trekking shoes and three litres of water each. You should've attended at least one out station trek and one local trek with ghac. You can even do that before this trek. You must share some of the responsibilities like carrying tents, group Co ordination. Failing to do so you will be moved to NO list. This is for your safety. Hope everyone will understand. If you still have any concerns you can call me.

    Since a few of you are making payment for the first time - the trx ref is the UTR number. If you are unsure, please check with your bank. If its NEFT transfer, it would begin with alphabet - N or MBK or INB or IC/AXIC or CIUBH or can be 9 digit number usually begining 5 etc if you paid using credit card, it begins with GH
