Sinhaghad Fort Pune | Series 1

28

Sinhaghad Fort near Pune is a picturesque location and a perfect wind-down spot for a few hours from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a historic fort with stories built around its heritage and the glory of past days.

My take is here on the true ‘gawran’ food served here and the pleasure of a morning trek.

My in-laws accompanied me on my return journey from north India. Β They stayed back for 3 weeks. V and I used this judiciously by taking out some ‘US’ time.

We went eating out, including Stone Water Grill. We took off for early morning treks to ARAI and Sinhaghad. And we took a lot of walks in the society sans kids which we rarely get to do.

So we used these 3 weeks to the fullest.

Trek to Sinhaghad was really tough for me. I was out of shape, I had not trekked in a very long time.

To cut a long story short, I didn’t trek up to the peak but crawled on all fours.

My legs and stamina gave up after 3/4 th of the distance was covered. But since I had come this far, it made sense to just continue moving and I did.

A little piece of advice for any new trekkers, Don’t stop too much and eat on the way. It is better to take a few sips of water and keep on climbing.

Your body cools down, making it even more difficult to climb up the rest. So keep going!

I took out the camera when I reached and was fascinated with the vendor’s arrangement of raw mango sprinkled with chili powder. Ready to be sold.

I was trigger-happy after a tough climb. I guess I deserved some idiosyncrasy.
