Life in a city can often be overwhelming especially when you’re living in a city like Mumbai. When the never ending pile of everything that has to be taken care of-starts to engulf us, we all look for an escape. Something that can take us away from all our problems, a quick out from the daily grind. If a session of escapism is what you have been on the lookout for, this monsoon trek to Visapur fort is just what you need.
A bus ride away from the concrete jungle that is Mumbai, this trek will take you through the lush valleys of Maharashtra which are perennially green and stunning. The hills that echo the music of water dropping on leaves will not only cleanse you of the toxicity of the city but will bring you immense calm.
Once you begin your upward stride you will witness nature’s stunning miracles which have been amped up by humankind to become more enthralling than ever before.
The famous stone cut steps and the waterfall, the monsoon and the greenery are sure to put a spell on you and if you have been looking to meditate and just let your mind lose, then this is the perfect place.
The trek’s organizers “Bhatakna”, define trekking as ‘just like life’, where you have to continuously put one foot in front of the other and move forward, where if you’re even the tiniest bit “present”, you witness the beauty and miracle of everything around you. This alone is enough to make us want to take a trip down to this beautiful natural abode.
So, if you too are looking for a day away from all the bustle, the trek will cost you a total of ₹800 which includes the transport to and from Visapur base village (Bhaje), two meals (breakfast and lunch) as well as entry to the fort. All you have to do is come prepared with water, a wind cheater, identity proof, ready to eat packaged food, a blanket and/or warm clothes.
