I have always loved travelling, because of which I make it a point to take frequent short trips to destinations around India, specifically hill stations. One of the nearest hill stations to Pune is Mahabaleshwar. The journey by road is not too long, due to which I go there quite often. With lush greenery, magnificent waterfalls, and a beautiful view of the valley the journey is a pleasant one. However, as more tourists travel there, more garbage piles up on the sides of the road. This is harmful to the environment and also takes away from the scenery around. On one of my trips there, I noticed this issue and decided to conduct a cleanup drive on the road from Pune to Mahabaleshwar. This was truly one of the most enriching volunteer trip experiences I have been on.
