Saturday 10th December 2005:

6:15 AM Time to wake up and get ready for the day. Tea was served by Tushar/Prashant with some amazing Sweet Buns and biscuits.

8:00 AM Alongwith one of the villagers to guide us through the treacherous and difficult paths we left for Raigad, our final destination. The guy who was leading us told us that we, THE ENTHUS, were the first people this year to do the Torna-Raigad trek.

1:45 PM We reached a village called Lingana Machi Vadi. This is a village about 1/2 down the Lingana Mountain. On our way to this village we faced lot of difficulties and some really dangerous roads. The path was Mohri – Bortyachi Naal – Patti – Lingana Mountain – Lingana Machi vadi.

2:30 PM Departure from Lingana vadi towards Raigad, after an awesome lunch of Maggi, courtesy Tushar/ Prashant.

7:00 PM We reached a village called Dhangar vadi which is 1/3rd of the way towards Raigad. We had to walk a lot of flat land in te process and the last 1 and ½ hour of the journey was full of excitement, because the road was new for us and we were not sure were we are heading. But as it is said “Luck favours the brave? we managed to reach dhangar vadi. Now it was time to take the night halt. We took rest at one of the villagers house. On the way to this village we came across villages like Pane Vadi – Vagheri Gaon – Dhangar Vadi.

9:00 PM It was time for dinnr and again this time it was Maggi for Dinner. An awesome Limbu Sarbat was prepared by Ravi and Amit which really gave us a lot of energy to go ahead. After dinner it was sleeping time.

7:45 AM time to pack up and move toward Raigad. The Enthus reached the base of Raigad at Raigad Vadi and then climbed to the top of Raigad and about 11:30 AM

12:30 PM After the amazing journey and some light snacks at MTDC we started on our journey to explore the Raigad fort, Shiv Samadhi, Bazaar Peth, Shivaji Maharaj Statue and some other places.

2:30 PM After finishing the explorating we descended Raigad by the Ropeway and caught the bus back to pune. We reached pune at 9:30 PM. And the amazing journey was over.
