Yohoooooooooooooo! Yohoooooooooooo!
I recently went on a trek to naneghat. What awesome fun I had!!!!!
First come first..........Lemme tell u the awesomest thing I did......

I hitchhiked for the first time in my lifee.............Yippeeee! But I wasn't alone, had 15 people alongwith me, so no problem. Double the fun, actually........and guess what....I travelled in a lorry..........yohoooooooooooooo! *Dhinkatikaaaaa* Never ever travelled in a lorry before.....It was just so much fun....(More on it later)

I have wanted to trek for a long long time. Well opportunity presented itself and I jumped at it. The trek was great fun and I gotta meet some bloggers too. Dee, Reiya, gundu and Buhaha gang etc. etc. It was sort of a mini mumbai bloggers trek.

In order to go to naneghat, we had to go by bus. The route to Naneghat was so awesome! Amazing greenary.......Lovely! We all had fun . Gundu was all happy and gay....(Pun intended :P :P) The bus conductor began hitting on him. Heeeeeeeeee! The conductor switched places with Dee who was earlier sitting with Gundu and then sat next to him. What fun we had pulling his leg! heeeeeeeee!

It started drizzling when we arrived at Naneghat. Wow! What beautiful place....greenary galore. I was the only one in the whole group who had an umbrella and a windcheater. before people start thinking that I am crazy, let me confirm certain things. As u all know, I am a chasmis.....meaning I wear specs. Its a sad fact of my life that during monsoons, my specs tend to get wet and hence smudged very soon and I have to keep wiping it every 2 minutes which can be very irritating. So if I don't wipe it, I am almost next to blind. If I remove my specs I am blind again. What all problems I have in my life..Wear specs, get wet, go blind......remove specs, go blind again! So an umbrella! :P :P
Russel and Andy didn't get their windcheaters. Russel started cribbing and wanted to go home. I found it so funnyy! heheheheee!

And then started our ascent..........boy oh boy, It took almost 4 hours to go up. But it was worth all the effort. Waterfalls greeted us at every part of pur ascent. Water was oooh! Chilly. There were some mini-stream to cross through. Lovely it was!!!! Huffing, puffing panting we finally reached to the plateau above. Everybvody just crashed. But just peak was just 10 minutes away. Whilst everyone had food, myself and Dee decided to go up. We finally went to the top. And My!!!my!!!! It was so beautiful. And it is an understatemnt. It is an understatement in the history of all understatements. We hung in there for sometime and came down. Mice were playing kabbadi in my stomach (Ok.i have shamelesly translated this from a Hindi muhaavara :P) Hogged nicely and then was all set for the descent. Descent was awesome fun. Many of the girls found descent kind of difficult coz it was slippery and the presence of rocks did not make things easier too. So lots of them walked in pairs helping each other. Mostly guys helped the girls. they walked in the front helping the girls out. But well.....there was an exception too. Urs truly helped a guy come down for he slipped often. heeeeee! It was a classic kodak moment! :P I was sooper.....had no problems getting down. We saw so many weird weird bugs and worms. Red colour worm was very pretty and so was a transparent caterpillar..........very pretty. Also there were loads of mosquitoes. Thank u Reiya for ur odomos!

Then we we came down after 2.5 hrs. Everybody was damn tired. I thought we would come by a bus. But then we didnt get any, so everybody started hitchhiking. Whoa! and then finally a truck stopped! I was soooooooo excited, never done anything so crazy..........yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Amma/Appa would freak if they would know about this. So this lorry incident is carefully hidden from them :P heheheheeee! Few of us sat alongwith the driver. Gundu was with the driver and the driver started hitting on him too, I presume! :P The others (me too) sat up directly above the driver's cabin (rooftop). There were no shutters above our heads. So we had stars, moon and lovely breeze for our company. It was so awesome!

Finally we reached station somehow. and then went back home. I had a lovely time that day. I am already looking forward to more treks! Nature here I come...............:D

You trip indeed was fun. When I was in Pune we use to go to Malavli (one stop before lonavala) and did a lot of hikes from there. Raj machi, Bhaja Caves, Lohagad Visapur. If you havent been to these places, you should. Its great fun, especially in the monsoons.

Sounds quite cool - away from the sweltering - raining summer of Mumbai huh.
Sure does sounds (rather reads) lovely.
Have a similar place in Tamil NAdu - Top Slip, near Pollachi - way away from Madras (700km)
And yeah, the best way to hide info fromur parents is to display it publicly on the ever-so popular WORLD WIDE WEB nah?
