Monday, June 20, 2016

Rajapur Hot Water Springs aka Unhale Hot Water Springs are located in 3 KM away from Rajapur village in Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra. They are off the the Mumbai Goa Highway (NH17 aka NH66) on the road leading to Rajapur Road Railway station.

After visiting the Tural Hot Water Springs, we headed over the NH66 to Rajapur. We traveled for around 100 plus KM to reach the village of Rajapur. We inquired with the locals and they informed us that the springs are not in the village of Rajapur but in Unhale which is a couple of KM away from here. They informed to travel on the NH66 till we see signboard on the left,  Which states Unhale Hot Water Springs, and we did as instructed.

The Unhale Hot Water Springs are located in the Unhale village on the way to the Rajapur Railway station. There is a signboard put up on the left hand side of the road,

This spring is different from the ones I have visited, there is a continuous flowing hot water here. As in it is not a pool. There are two of these, one for the men and other for the women. I cleansed by face, hands and legs in the water. How I wished I had a soap so that I could take a bath in the flowing water.  Never the less, the cleansing was quite refreshing on the hot summer afternoon.

There is no provision for food and water here. Not sure if there is any means of public transport to reach this village as we couldn't see any shared autos nor any ST buses plying on this road.

We then sat in the car and headed over to Rajapur village on NH66 aka NH17 to have lunch. There are plenty of hotels in Rajapur Village. We had lunch at Hotel Saraswati. I had a fish thali and Manohar had a chicken thali (malwani style) to finish with solkadi. The food was finger licking good. Didn't expect such food from a place like this.

The time was now 3 PM on my watch and we had to make a choice, should we go to Malvan or head back home. Even if we decided to go to Malvan, we would  not have finished it in a day's time, so we decided to head back to Mumbai.
