 Ajoba (4511') is one of the highest peaks in Sahyadris. It’s a very easy climb till Valmiki Ashram which is half way to the hills.

It is said that Valmiki wrote Ramayana on these Hills. Luv and Kush were born here. They used to call Valmiki Rishi as ‘Ajoba’ (grandfather). Hence this is called as Ajoba.
