TTL: Pawna Dam, Lohagarh and Bhaja Caves

After a trisem of studies followed by a week of intense exam schedule, a need for a break was dearly felt. So, off we went. 4 of us, boys, in a Ford Eco Sport hired from Zoomcar.

The trip was taken via the scenic route, through the villages and wilderness. We went to Pawna Dam, climbed a hill to the Lohagarh fort, wen down the hill to the 1st century A. D Buddhist Bhaja caves, touched Lonavala and returned via the expressway. All in one day. It was hectic but strangely refreshing. It felt good, to us, it was a breath of fresh air πŸ™‚

Here are some of the glimpses.

  1. Visit the Visapur fort next time you visit the area! It’s the mountain in which the Bhaja caves have been carved. Since most of the people prefer to visit Lohgad, you can get uncluttered frames on Visapur but a word of caution, since it is not frequented by too many people, it’s easier to lose the trail as well.
    Cheers!
    Keep trekking πŸ™‚
