    Destination

    Warandha Ghat is one of the best place to explore in the monsoons, as it it lush and green and provides beautiful views of the surrounding valleys. The Kavlya fort faces the Warandha Ghat, and stretches over a large expanse of land offering a number of photography opportunities. The Mohangad fort, also located close-by is a newly discovered fort with beautiful views from the top.
