A Trek in Chorla GhatPosted in : Blogging Marathon, Trek on by : ArchanaPotdar Tags: A Trek to Chorla Ghat, Blogging Marathon, Trek
Today in the final leg of the month of #Blogging Marathon called #Buffet on Table we are doing bloggers choice.
To tell you the truth I was more worried about what I will be writing about here. Blogging about food is now second nature but about my interests, other interests!
I will like to share my new interest these days. Trekking!
This Sunday the 6th Sept 2015, we went on trek no 85 to Chorla.
I will not add anything of my own here.
These are Parab’s, the man behind organising these treks, introduction to this trek will be enough for it says all his passion for trekking or hiking.
I quote, ‘French novelist, Marcel Proust once said, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
There are few experiences that open up not just your heart but also the lungs and your mind and hiking in a new place does just that. Hiking or trekking your way through is the best possible way to experience the local flavours of the destination. With the pace under your command, stop at leisure – meet people who live on and around there, try native cuisine from small hole-in-the wall shops, make new friends and come back with an interesting tale of your own! Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread
In fact we will have extra bonus of having Prof. Rajendra Kerkar amongst us for this trek. He has suggested this beautiful destination, where you will have walk in jungle, in plains, in mud filled routes,,etc..etc…! Added attraction is the waterfall ( safe ) inside the jungle where you can cool your heels.
This is one of the rarest opportunity of having a memorable trek in Chorla Ghat area along with the son of the soil Prof . Rajendra Kerkar. Flora & Fauna of Chorla in the month of Sept. would be at it’s peak and for many of us it would be a dream destination……. Invigorating, bracing & fascinating….. !’
let me tell you when we trek with Eco Treks we have certain rules, we avoid littering, no more do we use paper plates we carry our own plates and water to clean and reuse them, our little contribution to the growing garbage pile in this world. in fact there are times when we collect all the garbage lying around at the destination and dispose that at our homes.
We totally oppose and do not allow any kind of littering or any other activity that can harm the environment. Also the consumption of alcohol, drugs, smoking or chewing tobacco in any form is not allowed.
Have a look at some of our pictures. Some you have already seen on social media… enjoy like I did on this trip.
