I just called my friend Rishi and got him ready, and obviously my brother being always ready for Raigad anytime. We did the final plan to go for and decided to leave in the night.

Interestingly, the way towards the Raigad is as much adventurous as itself; means, am talking about the Varandha ghat. This ghat always attracted me. Every time I got there feeling something new, refreshing, inexpressible peace, adventurous and in the night it just is like getting out of hell. Means it is just being heaven.

We the three were just feeling peace of mind. From here we could see Shivtharghal, the place where Samartha Ramdas swami written “DASBODH”.
After staying for some time, we headed towards the fort.
