The hills of Pune!

I recently moved back to Pune, India. And I have been visiting some of the hills which surround the city. Pune is blessed with many hills or in local language, they are called ‘Tekdi’. Some of the famous ones include ‘Vetal’ hill, ‘Parvati’ hill, Hanuman hill etc. Fitness enthusiasts often visit these hills for running, jogging, walking etc. Due to Covid-19, and the declining number of parks and jogging tracks in the city, these hills stand as one of the last remaining option to exercise besides the gym. They also remain a well known tourist destination for city dwellers to have a quick visit away from the crowded buzz in the city.

I have captured some of the pics which shows the beauty surrounding the city.

This picture is captured with the view of MIT Pune ( which is my bachelor’s college). The college is located on the right which has a dome at the top. The mesmerizing clouds adds beauty to the view.
This lush green landscape is known as ‘panchvati’ area in pune. This forest abodes quite a few peacocks, and its beautiful to listen their song.
This picture is captured at the top of ‘Vetal’ hill, just after the sunset.
This park has a beautiful pond, where we can find many fish, tortoise and frogs. The northern part of city can be seen behind the pond.
This picture is taken from the south, which shows the ‘Sinhagad’ fort faraway. This is a famous spot for joggers and morning walkers.
Picture of sunset on the top of hill. The grassland is a wealth of exotic flowers and plants.
Finally, this snapshot captured before the sunset shows the urban jungle of Pune.

I plan to do some more photography of the city and its beautiful surroundings. I hope this natural beauty is preserved as they are the lungs of the city.

Stay tuned to my blog for future travel updates and nature photography.
