What’s the word on the city street?
The Velas Turtle festival is a one of a kind festival that takes place about 200 kilometers away from Pune at the Ratnagiri beach where you can watch the tiny baby turtles hatch out of their eggs and make their very first journey towards the big blue sea.
This festival is a very cool part of ecotourism. All the money collected through it will go towards the conservation of these endangered olive ridley turtles. How amazing is that? This mini vacation will not only make you feel energized but will also feed your soul and you shall go back knowing that you have made a contribution to a great cause.
The other places that you can visit around Velas is the Bankot Fort where you can enjoy a great hike and the Harihareshwar temple to make you feel closer to the divine.
