The track to Tungnath is silence itself. Even the stones seem to have soaked it over the centuries, and radiate a kind of calm. A lone tea shack courtesy a local resident serves as a travellers’ haven here. An occasional shepherd turned limejuice seller may also be spotted. His sheep dot the meadows while he mixes a cool glass of neembu pani.

Even before the train pulled into Nashik Road railway station, I was smitten by the landscape of this grape valley in the Sahyadri range, in North Maharashtra. Hills encircling the city looked more like mammoth Shivalingams, set against the blue sky and green vineyards!
