Garbett Plateau Trek!
Garbett Plateau Trek is famous for the stunning view it offers from the topmost point of the trek, also called the Garbett Point. From it’s very location in the south-west of Matheran, one can easily get a 360-degree view of entire hill station that comprises countless waterfalls, the lush green blanket of the Sahyadaris and one of the biggest plateaus in the region, making it a priceless view for a true nature lover. The route to the Garbett point is even more interesting, where after a quick sneak-peak into the villages nearby, you walk all alongside a beautiful dam called Dhom.
During monsoons one gets to cross a few streams, encounter small waterfalls on the way and you get to see the 115ft waterfall called as Diksal waterfall, which is one of the attraction on this route. Post monsoons the land becomes all green and is one of the most sort after treks. We will trek from the easy patches to steep climbs and stronger wind blows as you’re nearing the plateau. This continues while heading towards the Garbett point. Any time between July to December is a good time to trek here.
