Ganpatipule to Malvan – Konkan bike trip – 5

Events from Day 1:Thane to Dapoli Dapoli to Anjanvel Lighthouse Dabhol to Guhagar Beach Events from Day 2: Guhagar to Ganpatipule temple    Ganpatipule to Malvan: Finished from the walk-through in Prachin Konkan, without wasting any time we started towards Malvan as we were already late. This phase was one of the most scenic in the whole tour. High mountain roads on one side and vast ocean roaring on the other side.
