Green Carpet Trek to Vasota on 28th Feb 1st Mar 09

Hi friends,

I am really glad to tell you that we "Green Carpet " has organized two day jungle trek to Vasota on 28th Feb & 1st March.

Type - Hill Fort
District - Satara
Base Village - Met Indavali
Region - Satara

Situated on the western edge of Satara district, this old warrior offers one of the most thrilling trek in the Sahyadri as far as trekking through forestation is concerned. Dense forest all the way through, Konkan on the west, wonderful cave at Nageshwar, makes this a fort of special interest for amateur trekkers and photographers.

Here are some pics of Vasota by our friend Aniket Mirwankar, who has gone to Vasota twice or thrice already and doesn't mind coming along for the 4th time!!
