Detailed itinerary ( View All )

Start this Mumbai escape as an early bird and depart towards south. You will be heading to Murud-Janjira, port town on the Arabian Sea coast. You are going there because of some pretty amazing, invincible medieval fort. Janjira Fort having its name originating from an Arabic word Zizera – an island, is indeed a massive free standing fortress on a single rock in the sea. The only way to get there is on a sailing boat where you will get to know about its turbulent past. In response to this challenging structure build by Siddis, the Marathas commissioned the Padmadurg Fort as a counter strategy. Located on a rock called Kasa a mile into the sea, this fort saw some fierce battles between the Siddis and Marathas. Use your imagination, look around while sailing towards the fortress and see all that old times sea trade tumult and piracy played in dead earnest. Once the sun gets closer to the horizon come to watch the town changing its mood on the beach. This is the place to be for the sunset and evening life. Coconut-water sellers, plenty of tiny various food stalls, horse driven carriages and some bullock-carts appear on the shore every day at sunset. Enjoy, observe, interact with friendly locals, snack all that exotic bites and relax. Overnight stay in hotel.

Start a day with proper breakfast and get ready to spend a day on the road. Heading north, towards your next destination – Kashid Beach you will stop by the Garambi Dam and waterfalls. The stop at the Garambi Dam is there to let you admire an impressive, over a hundred years old Victoria Jubilee Water Works, built by Nawab Sir Siddi Ahmed Khan, the last ruler of the east while Siddi reign. Near to the dam, hidden in lush vegetation are the Garambi Falls. A 100 feet tall marvellous cascade offers fresh breeze and some fun in naturally pure water surrounded by lush greenery.
