Rajgad Fort Conservation

This is how we cut the trees that had invaded the fort walls at Rajgad (Padmavati Machi – near Chor Darwaja). It took courage and stamina to get down that dangerous cliff and operate the chain saw. Little lapse of concentration and the saw could have snapped the rope. These fortifications will live at least a few years longer! Thank you all for your help and support.
