My Travel to Rajgard Fort and Diveagar beach

1. My Trip to the outskirts of Pune
 From my previous Journey to Sinagad fort, I have been told my local people that towards west coast from Pune approximately 181km there’s a Fort called Janjira Fort which is located in-between the Sea. After hearing this I was excited to travel to this place & willing to know some of the historic background behind this fort.
  So I & my team decided to visit this  fort, in the mean time we were also exploring in & around this location, after researching we had found that there’s another fort called Rajgard fort, it’s very much famous as there is the tomb of Shivaji Maharaja (King of Marathas). Sill researching, we found there’s a beach located almost at the remote area.

So we have booked a Jeep for the Journey for two days & one night which had cost us 5000/- & we got our self-got prepared on Friday Night.

2. Our Journey to Rajgard fort form Pune.
  I & my team-mates started collecting our people early in the morning & left Pune around 6am early in the morning. From Pune we were travelling to Rajgad fort. We had our Breakfast at around 7:30am & I would recommend all the tourist people to have breakfast at JP’s Food counter. 

  As on this way to fort you will not find any good Restaurant, so I recommend you to have enough breakfast over there.
  As the journey was to long we had our lunch at Mangaon, in Mangaon you will find good restaurants serving you enough quality food.  
  After reaching the location you will able to be giant plateau standing in front of you, so to get to this place you need to take the rope-way travel.

3. Getting on the fort
 One's reaching to the location you can reach to the fort by Rope-way which take around 10-15minutes to get to this height.

 As your bucket goes higher and higher you will fee afraid and even you will witness beautiful view and the rocks like concrete .  

If you all want to Trek this fort then you need to travel to another road. Looking at this Giant Plateau we had skipped Trekking & we had decided to Trek which returning. After reaching on the fort you have to counter pay for the entry fee to this fort.

4. Things to see on the fort
    On the fort you have various things to see, there Temple of Janani & Padmavati, Padmavati Lake & other two lakes & finally not the least the tome of Shivaji King.

After exploring the fort we decided to go to next spot, so we started trekking downwards the fort & told our driver to be at a specific point, it almost to 40-50 minutes to get down to the road. It looked like we have finished up all our energy.
Once we got into jeep we were almost asleep.

5. Travelling to Diveagar Beach
We have continued our journey to Diveagar Beach, we had reach on the location around 7pm & after getting the breeze of the Sea we decided to go for swimming next day. To feel the beach we stared to walk towards the beach, remind you all there are no lights on the beach, sky is very much clean enough to witness thousands of stars and our Milky Way, cool breeze and one thing I notice that as we walk around the wet sand, it used to sparkle light of Blue color it was amazing.

6. Stay
After enjoying on the beach we took our jeep & started searching for the rooms, I would like to have note for the tourist that there are really room available on this place, some people offer the home too if you are unable to find lodge. So after searching in this area we had seen that loges are full & finally we found a house which had cost us for 3000/-, we had bath fresh our self & had Sea food Dinner, another note for the tourist that these local people shut down their hotels soon, so don’t be late to have your dinner. Next Day Early in the morning we had our breakfast & we head towards beach.

7. Enjoyed on Beach
On reaching Beach we went into water to enjoy as time passed on we noted Local people are conducting sports activities which includes Water jet, Banana ride, Bumper ride, Paragliding which is drive by Jeep (that’s the crazy one I ever seen), 
     After negotiating with the rider we had taken a group of activities for reasonable price & started.

8. My Worst Experience towards Water Sports
I felt even I am from Beach area Goa I never tried water sports activities but on this day I enjoyed the water sports but I felt I have been paid to torture with my Body again Sea water & I said to myself I will never ever do water sports activities ever, I will set on the beach & watch other people who are doing water sports activities. The most rides I hate is Banana ride & Bumpy ride, its good but I tortured my own body with pain next morning were I really unable to walk on my working hours in the office.   

9. Next
Next we decided to go to our last Destination of the day to Fort Janjira.
