1) used my Android mobile to log in GPS co-ordinates as I went along to create trail of Tolar khind way
2) used my Canon 600d SLR for photographs
We started from Chinchwad at around 11 pm by private bus and reached Khubi gaon at around 3 am (this much time since we picked up people from Talegaon too)
The most interesting part is the ShivLinga inside a cave always filled by chilled water … I had been to this place twice before, but did not go inside for praying lord Shiva, this time my determination was to do this getting rid of my worry of chilled water …
just look at the height of ShivLinga, it is about 6 feet upside and 3~4 feet under the water.
Shiva temple from one side has Ganeshji on the other ! temple looks quite old .. having worn out stone structure .. i don’t understand how they are worn out so much .. is it heavy rain fall ? god knows !!
Outside the temple there is cistern of water … and small stone structure .. again no one knows what it is for …
FONA team o fort Harishchandragad … with leading hands from Mandar Therval and Manoj Rane …. always feel safe for even girls to do night trek …. cool although I have been here 2 times before .. this was a refreshing experience by itself.
This year I did not go to Kaas plateau to see flowers … since I do not want to add to the crowd to spoil nature .. but god is great .. he gave me pleasure of flowers on the plateau of Harishchandragad 🙂
on the way down from tolar khind .. evening shot …descending happened in 2 hours starting from konan kada via tolar khind .. nice na ?
