Scuba Diving Special Visit to Netrani Island, Karnataka with Trek Mates India on 24th January to 26th January 2015.

We at Trek Mates India Invite you for Scuba Diving Special Visit to Netrani Island, Karnataka on 24th January to 26th January 2015.


Did you ever wanted to swim like a fish?

Have you ever wondered how does an underwater life look like?

Does Blue Ocean Water fascinate you?

If your answer is “Yes” for any of the above questions, here is your chance.

Come and Dive with us to witness the beautiful marine life at Netrani Island, Karnataka.
Netrani (also known as Pigeon Island) is a tiny island of India located in the Arabian Sea. It is off the coast of Karnataka situated approximately 10 nautical miles (19 km) from the temple town of Murudeshwara.Netrani is a coral island and therefore suitable for snorkelling and diving activities. Many varieties of coral, butterfly fish, trigger fish, parrot fish, eels and shrimps can be seen here.Normally diving/snorkelling is done from a boat which is anchored close to the island and usually visitors do not climb on to the island because of the sharp rocks and steep cliffs on the island.



Few pics from our Summer Batch:






You also get a chance to see the World’s Second Largest Shiva Statue at the famous Murdeshwara temple. The place holds a mythological significance and you will get to know more about it at the museum located inside the temple.
Murudeshwara is a town in Bhatkal Taluk of Uttara Kannada district in the state of Karnataka, India. The town lies on the coast of the Arabian Sea.Murudeshwara is another name of the Hindu god Shiva.

TMI: Trek to Peb Fort on 26th Oct '14.

We at Trek Mates India have arranged a Trek to Vikatgad (Peb) Fort on 26th Oct 2014, Sunday.

Trek Details :


Type : Hill Fort
Height : 2100 Feet above MSL (Approx)

Grade : Medium
District : Raigad
Region : Karjat
Base Village : Neral


Some details about Peb Fort :Located in the same mountain range as Matheran, Peb fort is a enjoyable trek for a day’s outing.
The fort derives it name from the Goddess 'Pebi'; Peb is also called 'Vikatgad' for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, 'Ganesh'. The trek to the top involves surmounting a small rock patch and a ladder. The fort is famous for its caves which are maintained by disciples of Swami Samartha and the meditation chambers carved out from the rock inside the mountain. To get inside the meditation chamber, one has to crawl through a narrow passage in the rock and then climb down into the meditation chamber. The chamber is very well maintained with tiles on the floor for ppl to sit and meditate.




The fort also has a temple dedicated to Swami Samartha on the top and has the footwear or 'Padukas' worn by the great saint kept on the top. The view of the entire Neral and Karjat region from the top is worth the climb. Another attraction of the trek is the only standing Bastion or Buruj facing the Panorama point of Matheran, the view from here is just too beautiful to describe.

Batch 2 : TMI Trek to Dudhsagar Waterfall Top through Jungle Route and Camping near the Waterfall on 17th and 18th January 2015

Visit the Legendary Waterfall of India with Trek Mates India –  Trek to Dudhsagar Waterfall Top through Jungle Route and Camping near the Waterfall on 17th and 18th January 2015. (Leaving on 16th Night and Returning on 19th January Morning)

Dudhsagar is one of the world's most exquisite falls. It lies high up in the Mandovi River's watershed and so are so spectacular during the monsoon season when the falls are transformed into one of the most powerful falls in India. Dudhsagar Falls is listed as India's fifth tallest waterfall and is 227th in the world at 310 m. The water plummets hundreds of meters (over a thousand feet) in large volumes during the rainy monsoon season, forming one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in Goa.


Max Participants :40





There is also a legend associated with this waterfall. It is believed that a beautiful princess lived in the forest (near present day Dudhsagar Falls) in a palace. She loved and enjoyed bathing in a lake nearby and used to drink "sweetened milk" from her "golden jug" after finishing with her bath. One day while enjoying her jug of milk she found herself being watched by a prince, who was standing amongst the trees. Red with embarrassment at her inadequate bathing attire, she poured the jug of milk in front of him to form an improvised curtain to hide her body while the maids rushed to cover her with her dress. It is said that it is that sweetened milk that cascades down the mountain slope as Dudhsagar Falls to this day as a tribute to the virtue and modesty of the princess.


(View from Dudhsagar Waterfall Top)

This is equally scenic but less popular route. One has to get down at Kuhlem (Collem) railway station and walk towards the falls which is about 11 km away. It normally takes 2–3 hours to reach. The famous photograph of Trains passing through before the waterfalls can be seen in this route and also the complete stretch of the falls will be visible while you hike towards the waterfalls.
