Small Steps Adventures organizing an Scuba Diving event on 9th & 10th Jan'16 Info: Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus to breathe underwater. Unlike other modes of diving, which rely either on breath-hold or on air pumped from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater freedom of movement. ---------------------------------------------✅Where?Place: Tarkarli, Malvan-----------------------------------------------✅ What activities ? Professional Scuba Diving with a cylinder and trainers all the time ---------------------------------------------✅When?Date:Sat-Sun, 09-10th Jan'16 -----------------------------------------------✅ Where to meet ?Meeting Point : 09:00 pm, Pritam hotel, DadarPick Up Points :09:20 pm – Yogi hotel – Chembur09:45 pm – Below main bridge – Vashi10:15 pm – St Depo – Panvel -------------------------------------------------✅ How much?Cost: Rs. 7,000/- per person Include: Transport by an AC Semi-Sleeper bus to and from TarkarliAccommodation in a beach facing hotelBreakfast, lunch, dinner for two daysInternal transportGanpatipule beach visit if time permitsAll Technical gear and equipmentExpertise charges Exclude: Water sports and allied activities.Meals during travel, personal medicine if required, Personal expenses, Insurance of any kind Medical hospitalization, evacuation and related expensesAny item not covered under fees.-------------------------------------------------✅ How to register? For confirmation of the seat, full amount needs to be deposited prior to the event.

Dear All Adventure Lovers,   We have arranged Lohagad NIGHT Trek  & Camping on 2rd & 3rd Jan 2016 Here is some Info about Lohagad Height: 3400/3567 Feet above MSL(Approx) Grade: Easy District: Pune Region: Lonavala Base Village: Lohagadwadi Lohagad: This is one of the most interesting forts to visit as it still has its fortification and doorways in pristine condition. The fort dates back to the Satvahan Era and was mainly used to keep a watch on the trade route passing through the Sahyadris. As one starts ascending the fort, 4 massive doors have to be crossed namely Ganesh Darwaza, Narayan Darwaza, Hanuman Darwaza, & Maha Darwaza. The top of the fort is expansive and has a huge lake built by Nana Phadnis. The most interesting feature of this fort is the 'Vinchu Katta', which stretches for almost 2 kms and is slightly detached from the fort. The end of this katta has a bastion which was used for keeping a watch on the region. As the name itself suggest, the 'Vinchu Katta' when viewed from the top of the fort resembles a Scorpions Sting. The itinerary for the Trek is as given below: A)    Mumbai People : Meeting Point : Panvel railway station @ 3:00 pm sharp B)    Pune People :  Meeting Point : Malavali station (Second last station by Local while coming from pune)  5:30 pm sharp ( pl catch Pune-lonavla local @4.25pm from Pune Station) Pl dont miss this train.     Saturday 2nd Jan 2016 04:00 pm: Meet at Panvel Station (Mumbai Ppl) 05:30 pm: Meet at Malavali station (Pune Ppl) 06:00 pm: Reach Malawali Base Village 06:30 pm: Intro n Trek Start 09:00 pm: Reach Lohgadwadi 09:15 pm: Dinner (Veg/Non-Veg) Give your preference while booking. 9:30 pm: Reach to the top (Camping Site) 10:00 pm: Tent pitching Session 10:30 pm: #Fun#GroupActivity#Enjoy Rest, Have a nice sleep   Sunday 3rd Jan 2016 06:00 am: Wakeup call 07:00 am: Lohagad  Sightseeing (~2.0hrs) 09:00 am: Tent Packing 09:30 am: Start Descend 10:00 am:  Breakfast & Toi...
