The sun is increasingly looming & beaming its rays on our Mother Earth. It seems the living beings, have been losing the natural cover to protect ourselves. The ozone depletion, deforestation etc are some of these protections offered by nature. We have been certainly facing the heat as result of this. Lets spread the message to protect our environment by saving energy resources, reusing, recycling, minimising wastage, conserving everything since anything & everything we do, results in usage of resources. Fortunately for us, there are certain places just outside Mumbai which still have pretty good forest cover & our saga of treking continues even in summer. Combined with our timing, we have planned a short trek to Prabalgad this
weekend. This is going to be a night trek! Prabalgad is located off Panvel. Its a hill fort surrounded by couple of small hill forts & the famous hill station
Matheran on the other side. So lets pack a small bag & off we go.
