Trek - Mahimandangad

A small fort on the top of a hill, it is accessed from the small mountain village of Sindi, near Khed on the route from to Konkan. 
The best part of this trek is experiencing a stay at Sindi. On the edge of Koyna forest, it consists of barely four or five houses with the typical thatched roof and shady courtyard. The only sound one can hear at night is the steady calling of the nightjars. Morning brings a cold mist and the orchestra of birdcalls. As the day moves on, the sun raises a shimmering haze off the red soil typically found in this region. The fresh unpolluted air and the silence bring its own rewards.
