The first 9km of the route till the famous Nagfani traverse is a dreamy hike with little much of the bumps not too steep.All the drama starts with the traverse continuing all the way down to the foot of the hill near the roadhead village Vinzar.A short bridge crossing to peep into the Gunjawane village before it heads up to toss a view of the long distance covered from the Sinhagad fort coming up to Rajgad Fort. Typically for beginners a whole day extravaganza while for the trail machos a 5-6hours ordeal. The base villages present good refreshments, water availability and also accommodation only if you were not carrying your own stuff. Don't miss those selfie on all the historic points on the Forts which have been marked by the archaeological establishments. Summer season is dehydrating and heavy rainfall months carpet those slippery algaes and poor visibility.
