Dear Rangers, We at Wild Rangers glad to invite you all for tour to Velas, Bankot Fort & Harihareshwar Beach on 9th April & 10th  April 2016. Velas Velas is a village in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra. It is noted as a birthplace of Nana Phadnis.He was sachiva- a secretary in Peshawai in Pune. It is also famous for its beaches and turtle festival which is held by the local people of Velas and Sahyadri Nisarg Mitra, Chiploon.This year Velas Turtle festival will be starting from 15 Mar onwards, this tour is for experiencing the beauty of Konkan beaches with few hidden spots & yummy Konkani food. If we have lucky charm, we might see some hatching of the Turtles… Fingers Crossed…Bankot This was the first residency of the British Raj in Southern Konkan. Although a very beautiful fort dotting the coastline of the Konkan strip, the fort of Himmatgad, now popularly known as Bankot (from the name of nearby village) is not a destination thronged by the tourists. There are couple of reasons attributable to its secluded status. One is that there is very little awareness and historical significance associated with Bankot and other is absence of any major township in the nearby areas contributing to lack of quality accommodation facilities. However, there is no denying that Bankot is a very beautiful fort and surely worth a visit.Harihareshwar One of the finest sea shores in India, Harihareshwar is a nice tourist destination located in the Konkan coast in Maharashtra. Harihareshwar is renowned for its tranquility and picturesque beach. Harihareshwar is also known as Dakshin Kashi by virtue of its importance in the spiritual arena of India, especially with an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Harihareshwar, as the name suggest is an abode of Lord Shiva.Journey Details: Friday, 8th  April, 2016  Gathering at Wakad Bridge at 23.00 Hrs Leave for Velas Saturday, 9th April, 2016  Early Morning Reach Velas, Get Refresh and visit Velas Beach for turtle festival. … Read more
