Trek to Rajmachi: Yet another Land of Waterfalls

Difficulty Rating: 1/5
Height Shreevardhan: 3200 ft
Height Manoranjan: 2700 ft
Best time to visit: Monsoon, Night trail
Per head cost- 150 ₹

A long, twisting route from lonavala leads to a col which separates two forts, Shreevardhan & Manoramjan. On the way, a small Dam, oxygenating tree-cover, the austere grandeur of Sahyadri, loads of waterfall, thousands of bushes, bazzilion birds, thick forest cover would surely enlighten the atmosphere.
