Hello everyone. Today’s blog is on an adventurous topic “Top 5 Amazing Places to Trekking in Mumbai“.

Trekking has become a favourite weekend pastime for many Mumbaikars. As soon as the weekend arrives, many of them head to the hills to explore the scenic landscaped mountains located in and around Mumbai. While some are close to the city, there are some that are within 200 kilometres away.

The best part about hiking or trekking near Mumbai is there is a trail to suit the trekking skill level of every person. While you have some treks that are easy (where all you need to do be walk upstairs), there are those that require skill and patience. Here are the 5 trekking places near Mumbai, in order of distance.

This is yet another trail inside the beautiful Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai. A former tribal settlement, the Shilonda Trail leads you through a gentle walkway, a dense forest, and a couple of beautiful streams till you reach the endpoint that is actually the farthest point in the national park.

The trekking trail is very easy; however, due to the distance you have to cover, it could be tough for someone who is not used to walking a lot.

5. Garbett Point Trail,

Garbett Point trail

Despite the Garbett Point offering scenic views of the plateau below, the most fun is had when you trek up to the Garbett Point from the Diksal village. The six-hour-long trek is challenging but great fun.

To get up to Garbett Point, one needs to pass through narrow rocky passages and steep slopes. If you are going here during the monsoon, you might need a rope to get across the stream that is difficult to pass through when at its peak. If you’re up for it, trek further for about 5 kilometres to reach Matheran.

Location: Diksal

Distance from Mumbai: 73 kilometres

Trekking Difficulty: High
