Equally famous among rock climbers and trekkers, Irshalgad has crossed every person’s sight and mind if they have travelled between Lonavala and Panvel. Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful treks in close proximity to Mumbai; it offers magnificent views form the top of the fort.
As you walk your way up to the fortress, it takes cover behind the clouds. The trek to the fort is dotted with view of Morbe dam and lush green meadows. Walking through the dense cloud and through a secluded village will make you feel like an explorer.
It’s a perfect weekend getaway for this monsoon.
