Sinhgad fort trip

On 26th morning we left our homes for Sinhgad fort on our bikes. Ankush, his wife - Meenal, my wife - Meet and I enjoyed journey passing through Khadakwasala dam.

After reaching the foot of the Sinhgad fort we parked our bikes, got freshen up and had spicy misal pav.

I was not feeling well that day. So I decided to go by Tempo Trax to the top. Ankush, Meenal and Meet wanted to give a try of climbing. I must mention that all of them were suffering chikungunya and yet decided to opt for climbing.

After a long time I enjoyed standing in the door watching the engine on the turning track. It was fun. Now I feel it was too childish act on my part. But I was enjoying that.

We reached Lonavala railway station at around 8:00AM.
