Shivthar Ghal is a rare yet refreshing, silent yet soothing, small yet unique place waiting to be explored. The name comes from a cavern in this place (‘Ghal’ is for a cavern in Marathi) where Samarth Ramdas (the guru of ‘Shivaji Maharaj’) used to sit, pray, meditate and more importantly scripted down the famous ‘Dasbodh’ manuscript. Shivthar Ghal is a quiet abode, housing some lush green places, a lovely waterfall and a river and some of the toughest on foot, picturesque mountains. Ideal for trekkers, however the silence and the natural beauty here (which can be seen in all forms possible) can soothe one and all.
