Explore with Prof. P. K. Ghanekar & Mr Sudhir Risbud !! Fort Sindhudurg (With Prof. P. K. Ghanekar): Type: Sea Fort Grade: Easy, Includes Ferry Ride & an hour long walk The Fort Sindhudurg is one of the important Sea-forts built by Shivaji Maharaj (Architect: Hiroji Indulkar) over a period of three years (1664-1667). The fort is built on "Kurte" Island, located near Malvan. This fort was strategically built to have a control over Malvan Port and keep a check on the English and Portuguese as well as the pirates. The sea fort is huge, spreading over 48 acres, with a 4 km long rampart, and walls that are 30 feet (9.1 m) high and 12 feet (3.7 m) thick. There are 26 bastions and around 45 staircases at intervals on this wall. Inside the the fort, we also get to see the prints of palm of right hand and left foot of Shivaji Maharaj himself. Petroglyphs around Ratnagiri (With Experts, Mr Sudhir Risbud & Prof. P. K. Ghanekar): A Petroglyph is an image created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of Rock Art. Petroglyphs are found worldwide, and are often associated with prehistoric people.Petroglyphs were discovered in the Ratnagiri and Rajapur areas in the Konkan region of western Maharashtra in October 2018. These rock carvings which might date back to 10,000 BC, depict animals like Hippopotamus and Rhinoceros which aren't found in that region of India. More than 280 sculptures have been found in vicinity of Ratnagiri, Rajapur, and Lanja in the Ratnagiri district. In many places, the size of the carvings of the elephant and tiger are as big as the actual animals. Along with the most common carvings of human, you can also see the carvings of a crocodile, tortoise, fish, and snake. Who carved these mysterious sculptures on these plateaus? What was their purpose? What did the ancient man intend to tell us through these sculptures? Let's explore these geological wonders with Experts. Last but not the least important is mouth watering "Malvani Cuisine". How can one miss this while being there !! read more read less

Sonaugi - The Best Kept Secret of Himachal
₹ 28,900
Sonaugi, a place that is blessed with a stunning location. Built in typical and traditional Himachali style that includes the use of a lot of wood and stones, our stay is amidst Deodar trees and Orchard. The place is accessible throughout the year and is classically described as a home from where many gentle directions goad you into walking to nowhere in particular. A destination very close to Manali yet far away, Sonaugi is blessed with unbelievable scenic beauty and pleasant walks. It is ideal for travelers who don't want to rush things up, who would like to live easy a few days amidst their rushed-or-unrushed lives. Holidays here are meant to languish, recharge, rethink, re-align, meditate, chill, hang-out, long conversations with like-minded travelers, long walks and you will come back rejuvenated.Note from the host : Mr Vivek Sharma : This is the place where I plan to retire and till then you are welcome to be the guest at my place. A few years from now, I will personally welcome you. A lot of thought has gone on to the making of this place but I am sure you will like old style "Dhuna" the best. This is the place where you can sit around the big fireplace and have riveting conversations with your co-travelers. The rooms have not been provided with the German bukharis (wooden stove) in the room that ensures that you can stay in a T-shirt and shorts even when it is snowing outside. I assure you that it does not get more comfortable than this on a chilly day. This is a 365-day "place to be in" but personally I feel that winters are much better than summers, of course relatively speaking, as it has crisp sun, lovely days, great visibility and less / no haze. This is a place for all those of you who prefer solitude over chaotic "touristy" destinations. read more read less
