Event Description

After the coastal ride (Mandwa-Alibag), get ready for a ride in the forested hills!

On the Mumbai Goa Highway, about 10 Kms south of Panvel lies a majestic mountain called Karnala that looks like the Thumbs-up sign! The slopes of this mountain are cloaked with dense forest… popularly known as the Karnala Bird Sanctuary. The aim of this ride is to circumnavigate (Parikrama) this mountain range and pass through some very off beat locations. The ride has been designed in a way that most of the uphill gradients will be encountered in the morning before the sun gets you!

Start: CBD Belapur Station (South Side Parking Lot) 6.30 am
End: Panvel Station 3 pm

Approx Distance: 50 Kms

The trip was great... though numbers were less that expected! A lot of last minute ditches :-(

My Friends Nitin & Jaya Tawde took a lot of pains from arranging from Food to driving the lead vehicle and from making fresh lime juice to booking the pick up vehicle... almost like taking their kids out on children's day!

This crowning glory of the trip was the downhill ride in the forested Chirner Ghat!

Do check out photos uploaded by Mr. Rao in his album...
