WALK IN THE WILDERNESS - WATERFALL TREK TO KONDHANE

More of a Short Hike than a Trek; Kondhane caves is located on the famous trekking route that takes one up to Rajmachi fort. The Buddhist cave carved out of the rock is an imposing & beautiful structure that is worth exploring

 

The easy undulating trail combined with the walk through dense forest with abundant waterfalls makes this an enjoyable day outing during the monsoons.
