In a quick end moment wrap we decided a trip to a dam that we newly came to know. Coming holiday we started out after gathering at Navi Mumbai on our bikes. Everyone’s incognizance about that place half an hour from Karjat turned our 90 minutes journey into a 4 hour journey.
Somehow reaching there at 12 in the noon with aching backs due to rough bikes and bad roads we walked to the dam to find from some locals that it was not worth visiting as the water level was at its least. We reached the spot disappointed. No flowing water! A huge catchment, but dangerous to go inside.
One friend told us that he will go in the water in the dam’s canal. He had a dip inside the water held inside the canal’s barrier, followed by another one of us. After seeing those two in the water other visitors joined them and within one hour it was filled with tourists.
We decided to return from there and as we walked a few minutes to our bikes we saw at a distance the diving and splashing inside the water and young people enjoying screaming and shouting. The place quite dull when we reached had now turned into a crowded water park. Did we bring the change? Who can say!
Back to Karjat we had VadaPav and tea. Let me mention Karjat is famous for Batata Vada. From there we visited bhivpuri falls but it was quite late so we only approached the falls and turned back. Later back to Karjat for another round of Vadapav and tea made our trip for that day. Returning again from the same long route we reached home after more than 2 hours. But now everyone of us were satisfied as even though we didn’t get a chance inside the falls or flowing dams we spend the day roaming new place on bike, photographing, joking and so on, different from the usual day. You don’t need the physical exciting tourist places, enjoyment facilities, water parks and so on to enjoy, as that can be done walking on a barren land if we have it in us to enjoy.
Next day from internet found that we took a double longer route that extended our two way distance almost 50-60 km. Now wasn’t that crazy!!!
