Starting from the tunnel that we come across in Katraj Ghat, one has to cross around 15 hills and small mountains while doing this trek. It begins with a fantastic view of lit-up Pune city seen behind you and slowly takes you away from the lights in a silent valley. One has to follow the TV tower at Sinhagad top that is visible throughout after reaching a certain point. By dawn we are close to Sinhagad and one can actually feel the entire region getting gradually lit-up before sunrise. An amazing unique experience indeed.
