So rainy season had started and we were planning for quick trek to some nearby fort. After some googling we shortlisted Rohida fort also called Vichitragad as our trek plan on 23rd July 2016. This fort is near bhor about 65km from Pune. Rohida is accessible by state transport bus which has good connectivity till Bhor from Pune swargate bus stand, but we prefer to have a bike ride till the base village Bajarwadi. The trekking path starts from the hillock west of the Bajarwadi Highschool. The route is very safe and wide. There are no trees on the trekking route.

Ever felt electric in Pune? The excitement in the air, the kind of energy of ardent devotion and a jest of hunger to have fun was evident at Laxmi Road, Pune as the cutest Bappa of all times says goodbye in style.
If you are ever in Maharashtra during the Ganesh Festival you will notice Bappa lives in the heart of the state. This is the Ganesh Festival in Maharashtra, a widely celebrated extravaganza involving almost every household. 10 days of hopes, dreams, fun, social gatherings and laughter, Bappa is the most widely loved GODS from the Hindu Mythology.
Evident from the energy of the Dhol-Tasha Pathak and the fully packed crowded roads, as the air fills with the aroma of fresh flowers, colours and the beats every person present in the crowd is blessed. Every person has a smile on his face as their heart races to the beats. With the crowd of thousands, the city beamed with colours, with laughter and with joy. Even the Sun GOD could not dampen the spirit.

When I say unique I mean this Ganpati idol is one of the rare idol which face towards south direction. Also Ganpati’s trunk turns towards right rather than usual left which is considered as auspicious.

In the quest to explore new location and try something different I took up this event as a challenge which after completing got to say that was challenge worth to be accepted. I know you will be eager to know what the event was; so this tour was 80km cycle marathon. Not exactly a marathon where we had to win by completing the circuit but rather it was more of a team event where all the fellow cycle mates were to drive in co-ordination to reach the
destination and keep on exploring the beauty of nature along the route.
This tour also helped me to test my ability and limits while at the same time I kept pushing my limits to achieve the goal (80km cycle drive and trek to Neelkanteshwar).

This fort was to be one of the crucial forts that Maratha empire possessed. This fort was from where Shivaji Maharaj used to control his empire. Rajgad Fort had some strategic importance which made it standout from other forts in the region. This fort was never able to won by any other enemy to Maratha empire.
