Man Lauds Maharashtra’s Urbanism And Interconnectivity; Shares Detailed Thread Of 4-Day Nashik Trip

Amey Kulkarni’s four-day Nashik trip, a city in Maharashtra, India, originally posted on X (formerly Twitter) offered a fascinating glimpse into Maharashtra’s urbanism and interconnectivity. Here’s a detailed glimpse into his journey as shared by him in a post.

Detailed Thread Of 4-Day Nashik Trip

Amey’s adventure began on a Saturday morning. He boarded a local train from Thane, a bustling suburb of Mumbai, to Kasara, a quaint town nestled in the Western Ghats. The journey, costing a mere ₹20, took roughly an hour and 40 minutes, covering approximately 90 kilometres.

Upon reaching Kasara station, Amey encountered a seamless transition. Three MSRTC (Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation) buses awaited passengers arriving on the local train. He hopped onto one, paying ₹105 for the 65-kilometre ride to Nashik CBS (Central Bus Stand). The picturesque Thul Ghat served as the backdrop for this one-and-a-half-hour journey.

Arriving at Nashik CBS, Amey opted for a Citilinc Nashik city bus, a convenient and affordable option with a frequency of 5 to 10 minutes. These clean CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses boasted a stop announcement system, ensuring a smooth ride to his home, located just 4 kilometres away. The entire trip took about 15 minutes, costing a mere ₹12.

Nashik CBS also unveiled another fascinating transport option – an electric, air-conditioned bus to Saptashrungi Gad, one of Maharashtra’s revered Shaktipeeths (sacred abodes). Departing every 30 minutes, these buses provided a comfortable journey for ₹170. The picturesque 65-kilometre journey culminated at the foot of the Gad, where a well-equipped food court and other amenities awaited.

Saptashrungi Gad is a temple in India that uses a funicular railway for transportation. The cable car system costs ₹110 for a return trip, including the Trimbakeshwar expedition. The base station offers facilities like food courts, clean washrooms, lounges, waiting areas, and footwear storage stands. Amey also visited Trimbakeshwar, one of India’s 12 holy Jyotirlingas. He boarded an MSRTC bus for a ₹45 round trip, which took about 45 minutes. After Trimbakeshwar, Amey took a city bus for the final leg to Panchavati.

Nashik surprised Amey in several ways. The weather was a delightful change, with cool evenings requiring a duvet for warmth. The city’s expansive roads, devoid of potholes, were a sight for sore eyes. Moreover, a blanket of trees adorned almost every road, creating a refreshingly green urban landscape. Perhaps the most striking feature was the city’s impeccable cleanliness, leaving a positive and lasting impression.
