Travel Blogs from Mahabaleshwar
... we got from the taxi drivers(What kind of tourists use public transport in Mahabaleshwar ??!!). The bus was an hour later, we used that time to have breakfast at a stall across the bus stand and look around. We found two useful things: one- a taluka wise map of Mahabaleshwar on a wall of the bus stand. Second was a map of Mahabaleshwar at the book/news paper stall across the bus stand. The map marked ...
... Macro Lens.
I got some pictures and we decided to head back in time to meet the others and head out to either do birding in a place called Ghati devi or go visit a waterfalls.
We went back freshened up packed, had our breakfast and decided to go to the waterfalls which was at the end of the plateau and then go do birding and be back in the lodge by lunch and then drive down to pune.
So that was the plan.
Our driver ...
... and beeeaters, we saw NO other bird.
We stopped in a place , where the boatman told us we could walk a little inside and spot something. But we ran out of water and the scorching heat was putting us off too.
We went a bit and decided to head back to the launch. Uneventful four hours. And horribly expensive too.
We came back to our homestay and had some hot tea and pakodas and just lazed the remaining evening n night.
... back to the house. A little about the house. The place we stayed is a nice brick house about 10 kms from the Kaas plateau. A simple place with just one hall and one room.
Mohan , the caretaker cum cook was staying in the building right next to ours.
We freshened up and went straight to lunch.
The most amazing lunch I must say. As we were enjoing our lunch, it started to rain.. Rain turned heavier and in no time we were experiencing a Hailstorm...yes ...
... beautiful shores and grassy slopes going gently up the mountain. That is where we spend the morning.
Here are the photos:
