Hi Ashish
Thank you.
Regarding Mahadevgad and Shirgaonkar point - no we did not visit because the place was totally fogged out. Shall post some pics showing that.
And the guy on the rope must have been from some hiking club. This is used for river crossing or for coming down from a cliff diagonally down. Sorry, I cannot recollect the name for this procedure. I think he was demonstrating or showing off!

@MAGICEYE,

Nice pics with nice writeup but you had finished the entire travelogue in the single post.
Better, learn from others how to run travel story for weeks.

There is no mention of Mahadevgad point and Shirgaonkar point.
Had you visited those places?

In the pic of amboli waterfall, i see one man hanging on rope. whats that?

Magiceye, supurb pic, I never knew that Amboli has so many points to be visited. during my last visit I only had some normal halts on the ghat section. your pic has revived my old memories, feel like going back again to Amboli.

Magiceye,

Brilliant photographs. I had done this trip 2006 December. Going through your thread, I actually got a chance to relive the journey. Keep it coming. I have the exact same photograph of the Wooden chandelier at the palace.



Regards
Gautam.

I like the investigative nature of these photos. some of the photos have that Hitchcockian feel to it. Thank you.

I wonder if any of the travellers who have been to Amboli have visited this place marked as Bugalow. Its a very old bungalow which is in ruins. the last time i have been inside is decades ago. So wonder how it maybe today. Its sort of private property & visitors are not allowed. But if you get a chance to sneak in, Its the best view of the valley you can get from here.

Amazing photos of Sawantwadi these....It has always been the lesser explored place I guess enroute to Goa. Amboli and Sawantwadi can make up for a great holiday.....
