Bombay Darshan

It was my second visit to Bombay. Reached 8:00AM on 26the of july. Shailesh came to Dadar station to help me out. We reached his home in GhatKopar. After having breakfast, we decided to go for Nariman point and gateway of India. I was sunny day and sun made whole thing little hectic and came back to meet Purvesh. We went to Bhandup where there was party by Dheeraj for making into NITIE.

Next day i reached my hotel in Malad. Met Nitin and had dinner outside. First week at training went well where i get opportunity to meet lot of people from diffrent background and places.

Matheran Trip: 3rd July 2010
It is hill station situated at height of 803m (not a hill station from Himalaya point of view but everything for offence intended). Believe me after reaching there i found out that place is really beautiful, it was foggy all around us.

Let me tell you how to reach here. From Dadar station you can board local towards karjat/khopoli or intercity express towards Pune. It will stop at Neral, From here you can take share cab till Dasturi Point. Dasturi point to Matheran is walk of 30 mins. Place is well maintianed as no vehicle is allowed beyond Dasturi Point.

We ate VadaPAv and Bhajiya. Nitin was interested in going to Race-Court. We first went to lake where there were some adventures activities was also taking place. It was 15 min walk from market. There is Khadala point near market from where you can see Khandala but due to fog it was not visible that day :( .

Race court was open ground where you can sit/relax and listen to nature . We stayed for half an hour there and left for the day.

Lonavala Trip: 10th July 2010
Again one more nice place at height of 622m. We were in Oberoi mall where we met Vikram and Anurag both Nitin's friends but now mine also. It was quick decision to leave for Lonavala at 12 in the noon. From here we took auto for National park and bus to Thane. AT Thane, we decided to go by bus so that we can see Pune/Bombay highway (we took frontseat/Conductor Seat). Reached there 4:30 PM.

After having quick snacks at Lonavala Market we left for Tiger point. We took some good photos and around 6:30, we came to know that it is not worth going now. Here we started our back journey which again took 4 hours and reached hotel room around 12 PM.

Trip was small but weather made it wonderful.
