We checked out of our hotel at 9 am and started back for Mumbai. The real highlight for this day was the water fall some 6 km from Mahabaleshwar en route to Mumbai via Pratapgarh. Due to the rainfall this fall was greater than the previous day and we were the only one bathing in it. The flow was so large that , even if we stood for a few seconds underneath it, it seemed like something is throwing piles of stones from way above with some extra force. The water was always trying to push your head down forcefully. Really 'mind blowing'.
(I am omitting the more relavent photos :P )
The route that we were taking this time was different from the Expressway. This was NH-17 but it was more scenic than the expressway. Other than the various picturesque places in the journey there was one water fall near Pauladpur which looked too good to be true.It was bigger and better in many ways.
We decided to appreciate the scenery and move on while resisting our desire to again bathe in the water fall.
So after that we stopped at Alibaug and though the beaches were good, it wasn't anything out of ordinary. But still the breeze is always nice so we decided to sit there for an hour.
After that our final stop IITB. And , quite obviously we were stuck in a huge traffic jam just kms from it. We got back to Surat the next day.
To describe what the places in the trip were like, i'd just say that the type of place that heaven is made to believe, would have probably been thought of after seeing them.
