My Malshej Ghat trip has always been associated with heavy to very heavy rains. This time too it was during the heavy monsoon months but the weather God had a different surprise for me and I was blessed with a super sunny day. The day was so clear and bright that the sky was sparklingly blue and the surroundings overly bright. In this post, I will not say anything but share pictures of what I saw. It gave me a clear idea of what lay beyond the mist. It was only mist and rain on my every previous visit to this place.
Towards the last leg of the Indian monsoon, it lashes down hard, really hard. The month of September is considered as the last month of the monsoon in the subcontinent before the gloomy sky makes way to the fluffy white clouds to rule the cheerful blue autumn sky. Keeping the pride and honour it pours lots and lots before it finally rests for the year. The monsoon waves a magic wand over the Sahyadri transforming it into a fantasy land. To cherish this season of bounty for the last time this year we visited Malshej Ghat.
The rains are the best time to visit the mountain pass of Malshej Ghat. For the last couple of weeks, the rains have slowed down within the city of Pune. I did not expect much rain and cloud show. Yes, I did hope for a lush surrounding. Surprisingly the trip turned out to be an experience of a different kind.
