As Mumbai gets crazy with traffic, contamination, and strong wilderness, you just have to take the chance to climb the quiet pistes. However, at the end of the week, you have sufficient alternatives to Shivaji’s fortresses, dropping cascades, Kando bhajia, and Sahyadaris, as opposed to snow and sweaters during a weekend trip from Mumbai. The Himalayas are possibly not accessible during the week.
Here is a 6-weekend trip close to Mumbai that will take you back and forth to the lap of nature in just a few seconds. The great thing about these treks is you can visit it all year round.
1. Lohagad Fort
Lohagad Fort (Iron Fort) is an old fort located along the Sahyadri Hills in the Maharashtra region of Lonavala at a distance of 11 km from Lonavala, 66 km from Pune, and 114 km from Mumbai. It’s one of Lonavala’s best tourist spots and also one of Maharashtra’s famous historic sites which you can visit as part of Lonavala’s packages. Built on the top of a hill at 1050 m above sea level, the fort distinguishes the Indrayani basin from the Pawna Basin. It is also one of Pune & Mumbai’s prominent tourist attractors.
Fuerte de Lohagad is one of Maharashtra’s best-visited fortresses and is among Pune’s famous historical sites. Guru Govind Singh constructed the fort to act as a jail in 1564 CE. It was captured in 1648 CE by Shivaji Maharaj, but he had to hand it over to the Mughals by Purandar in 1665 CE. The fort was recovered in 1670 and used by Shivaji Maharaj to maintain his treasury.
2. FORT LOHAGAD
The Lohagad Fort is probably the best place to reach Mumbai 96 km away. Lohagad was one of Chatrapati Shivaji’s powerful slope strongholds. The fort remains covered with fog and mist during storms and is particularly wet with greenery growth. Lohagad Fort is a group favorite among local people and visitors, surrounded by lush green vegetation. And in a single day, you can cover this walk.
3. ONE HILL TREK
This weekend Mumbai Trek is in Matheran, which is close enough to Mumbai’s weekend adventurers, in the Westerner Ghats. Matheran has a landscape shaped by forestry and the sparkling lake, and a legacy of frontier time is the pioneer-style architecture. The location is said to be environmentally sensitive and in this green district, no car is permitted. Here and the backwoods are the gloats of panther, deer, and uncommon forms of Nilgiri Wood Pigeons, White Rumped Shama, Brown Wood Owl, and Boar, restore plants and the spices fill bounty. This is one of Mumbai’s adventurous treks. One Tree Hill crosses dense forests and rough stones. This route is known as the Shivaji Ladder path from Ambewadi. When you go camping here, a walk-better is a clever idea because the night is nippy. Following a three-hour journey to the city, Dasturi Nakal and the fun Kajrat will take the return journey to return home.
4. HARISHCHANDRAGAD TREK
The old hillside fort of Maharashtra provides a challenging journey to the Western Ghats with a sequence of experience dating from the sixth century that was customarily used by Shaivaite people. In the Ahmednagar district, Harishchandragad has a precipice where you must transfer to the 80° grade, an errand which will ask for your solidarity and which will certainly give you some joy afterward. This Nalichi Vaat course starts from the river bed and paves the way for the canyon. You have the careful climbing gear and you have the alternatives for a night camp for tents or ancient caverns. This journey features the cobra hood state of the Konkan bluff, all-encompassing views on the slopes, and vivid sunset.
5. Waterfall Trek
The ancestral kingdom of Maharashtra is regularly identified as ‘Mahabaleshwar of Thane Coast’ by an interesting less frequented hill resort. Travel to Jawhar is an out of the world experience, surrounded by lush greenery and astonishing waterfalls. Before returning to the area, an outing lunch here would be perfect. The city itself has some very nice areas such as the lake and the lake and the legacy of the clans. Having sparkling work is a rare honor you’d rather not lose.
6. KALSUBAI PEAK
The Kalasubai peak in Nagar is the highest peak in the Sahyadri mountain range. Kalsubai is the most timeless of the Sahyadrises, a dream of any traveler who wants to ascend it once and for all. It is also perhaps the best place for a monsoon ride, 155 km from Mumbai and 176 km from Pune. The walk can be carried out in one day.
