Field Visit at "Alibag, Raigad district"

Category - Educational Purpose


Mahatma Jhyotiba Phule School organized a field visit from Naldurg in the Osmanabad district to Alibag in the Raigad district for SSC final-year students on 15/12/2022 (Thursday). The school has engaged a special bus from State Transport for this purpose.

Route Map:

  • Experiencing the changes occurring in the relief, soil, vegetation, and human settlements as travel from Naldurg to Alibag.
  • To have practical exposure to the field.
  • To know about, the physiographical variation of the field.
  • On the way from Naldurg to Solapur, We encountered undulating terrain and plains. We saw small settlements along the roads. Linear settlement along the road in the rural areas. In rural areas, traditional houses are built with clay while the use of mud and wood is visible in making the roofs is called dhabyachi ghare. The vegetation here belongs to the semi-arid thorny type of vegetation. They shed their leaves during a specific season. Trees like jujube (bor), babool, etc. are found here. Cultivation of moog, urad, and other pulses was taken place.

  • The population density is high in Solapur city. In urban Solapur, Multi-storeyed houses are constructed using bricks, and shops with modern amenities like shopping malls, big restaurants, etc. are found along the roads. While crossing Solapur, fields are greener here. It is mainly sugarcane being cultivated here. This is because of the availability of irrigation facilities.

  • The backwaters of the Ujani dam are built near Indapur on the river Bhima. This dam is mainly used for supplying drinking water. It is also used for power generation, fishing, irrigation, etc. We observed the Deccan Plateau, a plain stretching from Indapur to Urali Kanchan.

  • As we went westwards, we noticed major changes in the relief and vegetation. Change in the type of vegetation indicated a change in the amount of rainfall in that area. We saw that Anjan (ironwood), banyan, and peepal trees were more in number there.

    Types of Tress
  • At Sinhagad, Rugged topography with high hills is found. Rock pinnacles, valleys and hills, and layers formed from a volcanic eruption. Here we found a basalt rock, which is an igneous type of rock. We saw mainly pulses being cultivated on paddy fields. We took a glance at the reservoir of the Khadakwasla dam, which provides water to areas in and around Pune. Furthermore, we reached the Kalyan Darwaja (Gate). We viewed Devtake (sacred tank).

  • We visited places in Pune like Shaniwarwada, and famous marketplaces like Tulsibag and Mahatma Phule mandai (market).  
  • From Lonavala to Rajmachi, We saw hilly regions all around. The frequency of houses is becoming less. These are the slopes of the Western Ghats. We call these hilly areas Sahyadris too. From here you can observe the difference in slopes, the gentle slope to the east and the steep slope to the west. Towards the west, one can see many cliffs and waterfalls. This region is also the source of the river Ulhas, a major west-flowing river.

  • The mountain passage located between Palasdari and Khandala is known as Bhore or Khandala ghat in the Western Ghats. We saw dense forests comprising thick vegetation in the Ghats. We saw trees with broad leaves. These are the teak trees. This region is a region of deciduous trees. There are many vanrais and devrais. (Woodlands and sacred groves)

  • After crossing the Ghats, the dense forest became sparse. Paddy fields and huge industrial estates were now visible. It got hotter. Because of the increase in humidity in the air, we started perspiring, and our skin became sticky. As we went near the sea, this keeps on increasing.  
  • After reaching Alibag, we visited the Talathi office. We gathered information on the basis of the prepared questionnaire. we asked questions about the types of crops, soil types, cultivation of fruits, and other cash crops, land revenue collection, irrigation, watershed programmes, and other occupations in the village.
  • At Abeera beach, fishing and agriculture, both occupations are followed here. Coconut, betel nut, jackfruit, banana, and some spices are cultivated in the coastal plains. This is horticultural farming. Today, tourism has become an important occupation here. We also visited Kolaba fort.
