The Tambdi Jogeshwari Ganpati is known as the ‘Gramdevata of Pune,’ (Protector of Pune).

Guruji Talim Ganpati This mandal has a unique history of being started by one Hindu and one Muslim family in 1887.

Tulshibaug Ganpati Tulshibaug Ganpati is the largest Ganpati idol in Pune and stands at 15 feet tall.

I was looking forwarded to do K2S since long and finally it could happen with Pune travel club. I must say, it was one awesome experience which would not have been great without the support of Vamsy and other co-travellers on the Trek.

Thank you Pune travel club and Vamsy for such an awesome experience. I look forward to have some more adventure with you. ��

PTC is the reason I have become passionate about traveling, I have done 3 trips with them in one month. I am not going to stop traveling with them. Treks are so well organized and the trek leads are so helpful and understanding. Traveling with PTC is now no more about choice, it's a habit now.
Thank you PTC!!
