WALK IN THE WILDERNESS / AL FRESCO

TREK + CAMP AT HARSISHCHANDRAGAD VIA KHIRESHWAR

The rains have been fabulous this year and it will be winter soon! Time to hit the local trek route again & explore the Sahyadris with a trek up to one of the ancient forts in the Sahyadris and a very popular trekking route; 'Harishchandragad'.

To make things more interesting, we will camp in the moonlight right on the Magnificent & Behemothic/Colossal/Belittling Konkan Kada soaking in the views & experiencing the meaning of the Word "Zen Moment".

 

If this sounds to be your type of adventure, Join Canvas N Chrome during the second weekend of November when the air just starts to get nippy and the mountains become chilly.
