This secluded fall is hidden in the dense forest and so called ‘The Amazon Valley of India‘ and is perfect for nature-lovers and people who seek peace in this chaotic city life.
5. For The Ones Who Love Trekking
The great outdoors are great for a reason. It was Shakespeare who once said, “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin” and surely the Harihar region of Igatpuri is a kin place to be at. It’s time for you folks to lace up your boots and head out on the trail. Witness the beauty and diversity of nature with the land beneath your feet. Taking you to the Trimbakeshwar Ranges in Maharashtra, this enthralling trek will take you through the Harihar and Anjaneri regions of Igatpuri. Harihar, a fort built in 1600 during the Yadava period, is a breath taking location to go to for a trek, with a variety terrain ranging from plains and forests to carved stone steps until you reach the peak. The ideal time for you to start the trek would be around 10 in the morning and reach the top of the fort by 1 pm, explore the fort for a while and then descend before the sunset.
