The subject “History” is mostly an avoided subject in school days, but as you walk through fort walls, caves, memorials they start communicating with you, and with that you start experiencing a deep level of connect with the places and experience a deep level of satisfaction. Moreover, the history of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is so thrilling and inspiring that we feel like saluting these forts and monuments. Sahyadris has always been a challenge for trekkers in Maharashtra.
