The prologue of the trip

This is the first trip I did after getting into my Bachelor’s. It was around the year 2014. I and my friends decided to visit this city called Idar and the nearby forest “Polo Forest”. Idar is also known as the City of Mountains as so many mountains can be found. Polo forest gets so green after the monsoon season.

About Idar and Polo Forest

It is one of the most memorable trips to this time. we started from Nadiad, Gujarat (a city where I graduated). First, we reached to Ahmadabad via train. Then we picked a bus to Idar. Idar is about 110 km from Ahmedabad. Polo forest is another 15-20 km. Idar is well connected via bus and train or bus from major cities of Gujarat and to reach Polo Forest one needs to get Jeep or buses from Idar.
