Hello All - My first post really...Please forgive me for any faux pas committed in asking you all for an advice.

All of us in the office have been pondering over the idea to enter Aravali range for a days expedition. Not sure really, what holds in the woods and rocks of Aravalli, but the range looks attractive, when I see it driving daily from Faridabad to Manesar.

I have heard about possible treks in Aravalli, mostly in Rajasthan, but wanted to know from you all if there's a trek to challange lying close to Gurgaon or maybe not too far from there..

Thanks
Nikhil

Go ahead !

Though it wont be a very long trek but you will enjoy it. Even if you dont find any trail ,, it is not very difficult to reach on top by searching your on way.

Village Manger - Thats a good place to trek into...I went thru the green cover and opened into this old haryana village.. Life is still in the past here, but you can see mobile tower and people holding mobiles..it was a wonderful trek into the Aravalis..As it was monsoon season, got to see a lot of birds and beautiful peacocks...

A fellow traveler (who's an archaeologist at Univ of Chicago) mentioned 'Indorai' (or Indurai) to me - I've googled extensively and cant find any information (though there's a similar named fort in Maharashtra). He mentioned it was on the right side of NH8 from Dharuheda (so not too far from GGN) - it's a remarkably well preserved fort of the 'Meo' community. ASI is still digging up the place and the last 4 kms have to be trekked on foot (no road) ...He said, to reach here, you need to take the right turn from Dharuheda and ask around ...

JuliaF and Aarosh http://www.flyingfox.asia/pageicon.aspx?pgid=14 is what I meant by Flying Fox- its the same as Zipping or Zipwire. They were running some discounted offers a month ago. Apparently the same company is doing it at Mehrangarh too. Some people in the office cant stop raving about it - I think the charm of a fort is walking all the way up to the main 'Pol' and up the stairs to look down the ramparts ...
