Hi! After a long time,I am resuming my blogging activity.December is over.So time for my Travelogue:-)
This Travelogue I ve planned to write in two parts.First, a photo essay on Tarkarli,next will be the detailed write up on our lovely experiences .http://padmarajendra.blogspot.com/2011/01/tarkarli-travelogue.html
As I ve already wriiten in my blog on Karde http://padmarajendra.blogspot.com/2010/01/fond-memories-of-karde-trip.html, Konkan region of Maharashtra is blessed with beautiful landscapes.
Tarkarli is one more strong testimonial for my statement.If I have to express it in simple words"Tarkarli is the Real God's own Country".
Western ghats is known as Sahyadri Range in Maharashtra.Gaganbawda ghat section is one of the gateway from Kolhapur to Konkan region.
Beautiful,lovely and magnificient mountains really make us feel like ants.This is the topmost point of gaganbawda ghat section.
Mtdc cottages and Tarkarli is the best combination,because it is MTDC which has developed Tarkarli into a hot tourist destination.Cottages are good. Ambience excellent.Detailed review will follow up in my write up.

Tarkarli beach is known for its crystal clear water.Before going to Tarkarli I thought that it was a marketing gimmick,but water is really clear, peaceful.

Jai ganesh Mandir in Malvan(7 kms away from Tarkarli) was built by Jayant Salgaonkar of Kalnirnay group.Ganesh Idol is made of Gold.Blissful.
Boating in Karli Backwaters
Devbag Sangam or Confluence of Karli river and Arabian sea offers a spectacular,panoramic view. Excellent Experience.

Tsunami Island(around 1 and 1/2 acre area) is an Oasis of calm amidst the Turbulent waves of the Arabian Sea.This piece of land was cut off from mainland during Tsunami.A Snack Stall which caters to the tourists is run by the nearby Residents in this Island now.
