Jawhar - The unknown hillstation

So since the time college has started, I've joined quite a lot of activities which prevented me from going out anywhere. College was from Monday to Saturday, but as if that was not enough, I joined Taekwondo (self defence) classes which took up my Sunday as well. However, I did manage to get one Sunday off. That day we went to Jawhar....100 kms away from Thane.

My opinion ?- Get a group and leave right now ! Monsoons are the best time to go there. During this time the streams are overflowing, the lakes are lovely, and if you are lucky enough, you may even get to see a waterfall ! The drive to Jawhar is heavenly- Ghats, waterfalls, streams and beautiful valleys. You first pass through Manor, then Vikramgadh to finally reach Jawhar. There are no proper eating places as such, but there are quite a few small motels. Go in a group - Safety in numbers.

While we were there we visited :
1. Hanuman Point ( you can literally drive your car upto the cliff edge ! )
2. Jai Vilas Palace (wonderful walk - Paradise i'd say ! )
3. Jawhar Lake (bliss- scroll down to know why ! )

These places are all close by.

Some pictures from the trip.

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.

 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…
