Went for a day trekking trip at Malshej Ghats couple of weeks back. Ditched my dressy affairs and got myself clad in a worn out faded denim shorts with a basic grey tee shirt and a camisole underneath. My leather backpack was a must have for this trip along with a pair of leather sneakers. No makeup and no accessories day!
It was sunny and pleasant on top of the hills and the views with the tall trees and the rocky cliffs of the Western Ghats were a treat to the eyes. We stayed there for around 4-5 hours and the best part of the trip was the trek to Shivneri Fort, the birthplace of Chatrapati Shivaji. The ruggedness along with the architectural marvels of the Maratha Empire are fascinating for travellers who love archaeological ruins and remains.
