    Default Ride to Chill - Murud Janjira - Divegar - Shrivardhan - PratapGadh

    Me and Kashif went for a 2 days trip to Murud Janjira,Divegar,Shrivardhan and Pratapgadh.

    This was another unplanned trip which happened last month.I know i am bit late..but ki farq painda he

    Day 1 - Pune - Murud Janjira - Diveagar

    The idea of the ride started with the lazy attitude." Ki chalo divegar jayenge..Beach pe aaram Pharmayenge..Sunrise aur Sunset dekhenge..Feeling ke liye thodi bahut Madira grahan kar lenge aur Sunday shaam muh utha ke wapis aa jayenge"

    So me and Kashif discussed that we will start bit late as Diveagar is just a half day ride from Pune.Kashif was about to meet me at Magarpatta City main gate,I reached bit early there.So for time pass I had one tea..10 mins already and no sign of Kashif.

    Meanwhile I saw the chaiwala has prepared Garama Garam POHA,damn being a big fan of Poha Jalebi I couldn’t control myself. One bite of Poha and it was such a relief, in sometime Kashif arrived and we had few more plates of Poha Jalebi and Tea. So all in all We were done with our Morning Lunch. We started from there around 8:00 AM.I took the lead because I knew shortcut from Magarpatta to Chandni Chowk,it was long one though :P
    We took the shortest route between Pune and Diveagar,which is Pune - Mulshi - Nizampur - Managaon - Mhasala - Diveagar.

    Rode non stop till Mulshi Lake, and it was time for a photo break. Calm Water of Mulshi Lake surrounded by the mystic sahyadri ranges. The sight was very beautiful



    Some posergiri with my dearest Dhanno :P





    While clicking photographs Me and Kashif started to discuss, Boss we will reach Divegar before afternoon, what we are going to do there rest of the day. Let’s cover some other place as well and then we will go to Diveagar.
    So after long discussion about the available places nearby we zeroed on Murud - Janjira.Though I been to Murud Janjira plenty of time. But ek baar aur sahi .Because every time you go to places like these you will get to know new things .

    So we reached Managaon and headed to Murund Janjira via Indapur.Pretty Soon we reached Murud Janjira.The day was very hot and humid, we decided to have lunch first as we didn't ate that much poha in the Morning Lunch .

    Beautiful fort admist Roaring Sea


    There was a queue for boarding into the boats which takes you to the Janjira fort, initially when we came the queue was very short hardly 10-15 peoples. So we purchased the entry tickets and went for Lunch. To our surprise when we came back
    The queue became very long due to the some school picnic bachha party.Damn ! Standing in such long queue in scorching heat...and that too after having heavy Lunch. So we dropped the plan of Janjira fort and returned the tickets back. The discussion of dropping the plan
    Went for an hour. Sitting on a bench under a tree watching the line move. By this time If we would have stood in the line, we must have boarded the boat and have reached Janjira Fort :P

    While we were planning to ride to Diveagar,we came to know about the ferry which takes you to Dighi and from there Diveagar is 10-15 Kms.Now that's too good .Smile and Happiness returned on the heat soaked faces.

    Some more posergiri



    In another half an hour Ferry arrived we boarded our bikes and in 10-20 mins we reached at other side at Dighi.Stopped for a sutta break and then Straight to Diveagar.Ferry saved a lot of time I say.

    Just Landed at DIGHI


    Ferry Timings
    Murud to Dighi
    7.00
    9.00
    10.30
    12.30
    14.30
    16.15
    17.15

    Went straight to the beach, rode there for few mins and came back to the village and started enquiring for accomodation.Checked in a single room for around 600-800 rs (Forgot the exact figure :P )





    I was feeling very lazy and sleepy so I went for sleep immediately after check-in. While Kashif went for Village Darshan

    I slept for around 3-4 hours, such a relief.Kashif was coming in intervals and shouting at me "abe uth jao be b*#^$*Qe ..Yaha sone ke liye aaye ho kya".Finally I woke up as I had to respect his non stop blabbering.
    Evening time and sun was about to set, we quickly rushed to the beach to get some clicks and poser shots of course.

    Kashif Bhai


    Biru Bhai :P


    And the lovely Beach


    And when sun sets down






    Spent some good 1-2 hours posing and clicking. And we returned to the den and one big question came "kya plan he".Beers to beat the heat. Went to the town bought beers and snacks. And the party begins

    After the party we went back to the beach to do some night photography but didn't get any good shots as we didn't carried any tripod. So such a wonderful day comes to an end.

    Day 2 log in Progress

    Cheers
    Biru

    Day 2
    Diveagar - Poladpur - Pratapgadh - Mahabaleshwar


    Odo Reading - 290 Kms

    So we had plenty of rest yesterday and today we start the return journey to our Dens. But one full day is more than enough for the return journey from Diveagar to Pune.Me and Kashif discussed about a little detour via Mahabaleshwar.Kashif nodded his head with words.."Chalo chalte he"
    And we started for Poladpur.Shrivardhan is quite close to Divegar,last time when I traveled in the Shrivardhan - divegar route it was in very bad shape. So I said lets check it out Now.

    To my surprise the same road is in butter smooth condition now with pretty awesome view. The road and amazing view makes you feel like you are in some Foreign territory :P



    Me and Kashif took at least 4-6 stops in that route for photo sessions. And the best part was when we stood on the bikes to capture the beauty of the places where view was blocked.









    Shrivardhan Beach





    A Cutiepie at the beach



    At the end of the Coastal line we got to saw a very beautiful Virgin Beach as well. Which runs along a small village. Not sure about the name of the beach though.


    After the beach treat we headed to Mhasala.There was some rough patch 5-10 kms before the Mhasala junction, where road construction work was in progress.Kashif's bike got punctured out there :P . Kashif says there is some panauti with him, every tour he does there is minimum of one puncture in every trip :P .Very right, two of them I had witnessed by myself
    We stopped at Mhasala to get it fixed, In few mins we were ready to move ahead.

    Pretty soon we reached NH17 and moved towards Poladpur.From Poladpur to Mahabaleshwar the road condition is still not improved, it is as bad as it is from last 2-3 years :P
    Just before we reach mahabaleshwar,we have Pratapgadh fort in the right hand side (4-5 kms inside).Kashif said " we have been to Mahabaleshwar numerous times, but we never visited this fort".
    I said "then what are we waiting for. So in this way our bikes turned towards Pratapgadh.Narrow road with greeneries all around,twisties/turns with ghat section as added flavour.It was pure bliss.



    Kashif bhai Full on Posing


    Finally we made it to the Pratapgadh fort.

    The fort is divided into two parts the lower fort and upper fort. The upper fort consist of several permanent buildings, including a temple to the god Mahadev.
    The lower part of fort is defended by towers and bastions ten to twelve meters high, this is located in southeast part of the fort.









    People still live inside the fort complex. There are plenty of hotels inside where one can sit and relax and have some desi maharashtrian meal. We stopped in a hotel and tried some local food with Neera and Kokam sharbat

    After spending plenty of time adoring the beauty of the Pratapgadh Fort we started for Pune.With few stops for chai and sutta we made it to Home in the evening.

    Cheers
