DIWALI IN KONKAN

Nov. 10th : Early morning departure from a convenient location or your doorstep. Stop for breakfast at Nagothane,  the gateway to the Alphonso Belt. We meander through the verdant Konkan countryside and stop to enjoy a lunch of locally-grown naachni and local produce at a ‘khanval’ at the sleepy little Pethe Parushram village near Chiplun. This is the mythical site where Parushram threw his mighty axe into the churning sea, causing the waters to recede to its current shoreline. Here you can also stop and buy mango and gooseberry products. In the evening, check in at a hilltop farmhouse at Nate, nestled in More Than2000 of Mango Plantation. Stroll around the farm, where your host will explain the varieties of mangoes and how they are cultivated. Ride a bullock cart into the village, where you will also witness the preparation of festive diyas (lamps) from flour and the celebration of Dhantreyas, or calf-worship. Early dinner with aamras from the farm.
Nov. 11th: Awake before dawn for the traditional oil and uthna herbal Diwali bath. Watch the fog roll in over the hills as we set off on Diwali morning with a swim at the clean and uncluttered Godivane Beach.

Proceed to Nate Sightseeing – Kanakaditya Temple, Ambolgad, Gagangiri Maharaj Math, Ambolgad Beach.
