About Sindola:
Its in the Malshej region, initially u have to walk thru the plateau, and slowly the climb starts, my fav part was in the midst of trek there is a narrow path, on one side there is a valley and other side there is mountain slope, it dint rain that time so went hopping and jumping, and then there is rocky patch upto the TOP But while returning it rained, and boy kya vaat lagi thi niche utarte time

Like I wrote in that album, its an easy trek made difficult by rains coz the soil is slippery and rocks too

You will find some cisterns, ganesh carvings on the entrance of the fort, well the fort is in ruins as usual, but the view from top is great

I loved it, and even you guys will enjoy it coz its raining And definitely a WORTH VISIT
