I have been riding and hiking with Raw Adventure Solutions since 2015, and though I live in New Jersey, I try to combine my frequent trips to Pune with some sort of adventure travel experience. Both my Panshet Parikrama cycling trips (in 2015 and 2017) and both Konkan Cycling trips (also 2015 and 2017) were memorable. Both trips involved overnights (camping one night for Panshet, and homestays for 2 nights for the Konkan beach cycling trip) , and as you can imagine, a lot of preparation and planning went into making those trips comfortable and successful. I also did a monsoon hike - Andharban trail - in the Sahyadri's , them, and it involved a very wet and treacherous descent and many wild stream crossings. Again the organizers were well equipped, safety trained and very helpful to get our large group safely down to the bottom. Vikas and his team do an excellent job in organizing adventure events, and they really make an effort to take care of you personally, which I greatly appreciated.
