~Baked and Wired~
After a long day we end with some delicious Italian. Cheese nachos with salsa. Garlic bread bruschetta. Veggi delight Deep-dish pizza.
The road for cars was closed so the other option was to trek. We started the trek of 3km but the path was not easy it was rocky. We went up about half way only to realise that we underestimated the time required to trek. So we ended up returning half way before the sun set. A missed opportunity to see the fort but had a great experience with the trek.
Stopped for lunch before going on trek to Sinaghad Fort.
Boating at Panshet dam and rested along side the blue water and enjoyed the calm.
Finished with breakfast and off to Panshet dam.
