Today we start at Lonavala junction, and ride through some picturesque spots like Tiger point, Lions point, Korigad fort view, Saltar Khind and finally reach the base village for stay.
We cover two major ghat sections today i.e the Tiger hill climb and the saltar khind. It gets scenic after crossing Korigad fort, as most of the tourist come only uptill this point. Beatiful villages through paddy fields, small bridges on rivers that are active in the monsoons and amazing post monsoon weather will make the ride mesmerising.
We plan to have lunch near the mighty Taila Baila fort. The two peaks Taila and Baila are considered to be challenging climbs for Trekkers.
Today we enjoy the pleasure of riding downhill through Tamhini ghat. Cycling distance will be covered early morning to reach Devkund base by 9am.
