Trek to Tikona
On 11th Jan 2020, students of Denmark, attended Trek to Tikona with GGIM. They were visiting Pune on their cultural tour for a week.
30 students in their 11th-12th grade trekked to Fort Tikona. Guardian Giripremi Institute of Mountaineering's instructors Vivek Shivade, Anand Mali, Ankit Sohoni, and Deepali Patil guided them during the trek. Being enthusiastic students, accompanied by their History teacher, they took keen interest in learning History of Maratha Empire. During the trek they explored nuances in traditional culture at fort, structure of the fort and caves, and temples of Taljai Devi and Vitandeshwar.
From the top of the fort, team saw nearby forts - Lohgad, Visapur, and Tung. Views of serene Pawana dam left the guests speechless.
It was a wondrous half day adventure with some bites of History, Geography, Indian Traditions and customs.
