Monsoons had just arrived and we couldn’t resist the first one of the wet season, Siddhagad. Located near Murbad, between Gorakhgad and Bhimashankar, it was a good outing for us, Vj, Mallik, R.A. Jo B.A, Sneha, Swati and Kudrat. We could’ve hiked the final Balekilla, but as we were on a tight one-day schedule, we had to reach up to the cave atop the Siddhagad machi and return back.
- Get a train for Kalyan Railway Station (Central Railway)
- A ST bus to Murbad
- Another ST bus to Narivali
- A walk starts which converts to a trek soon – towards Siddhagad
Approximate time of Trek: 6-7 hrs (including the return to the base village)
