2) Easy to reach. The route to Ghangad offers amazing landscapes from Tamini Ghat. So it's a bonus.

Our Plan :

We started at 3:30 .
Climbed and reach back home by 12 AM .
It's an hour long journey . We went via…

From its summit , at morning, I watched the sun emerging in between clouds from its abode . All the stories I heard became true. There is nothing beautiful than nature. This was the second trek of my life (first being Ratangarh..another gem..another fantastic trek). And this was special.A night trek. Inside my mind
I had no idea how a trek with medium grade difficulty can be organizedwith a group of amate…
