Home to over 222 species of birds, this is a great opportunity for city dwellers to watch birds in their natural habitats calling out to each other, amidst a variety of trees and shrubs. If you believe that nature has the power to soothe all your troubles away, this is one trip that you will uplift your spirits in all the right way.
Want to take it up a notch? You can start ascending the mountain towards the Karnala Fort – which is roughly a two-hour trek one way. Built roughly in the 1400s, it was used as observatory by Shivaji’s troops and is a great spot to watch eagles and falcons, especially during nesting season.
Getting there: It is located off the Mumbai-Pune national highway, 12 kms from Panvel, so driving is the best way. You can also take auto from Panvel station.
Don’t Leave Home Without: A camera, sunscreen and a bottle of 7UP Revive as trekking up to the fort is sure to make you sweaty and tired. After all, no one likes to quit midway right?
#LBBTip: While all the above trips are destinations you can visit at any time of the year, don’t forget to make your way to Purushwadi in May for the Fireflies Festival. The sight of fireflies is almost like a scene from Avatar and attending this one would truly make your travel list epic.
Go ahead, pack your bags and get ready for a getaway, complete with some adrenaline and thrill. Also, because your body tends to sweat and tire, when you are in the process of exploring a new place, sip on a bottle of 7UP Revive. Because this is a great way to replenish your body with fluids, essential electrolytes and vitamins, caused by all the travel and summer sun.
