The Grand Garbett Trek
The Grand Garbett Trek is one of the most scenic one day treks in the Sahyadri Mountains!
The trek begins with an easy-going stroll along the banks of the pristine Dhom Lake before you cross freshwater streams and rustic villages.
The unending scenery of the green meadows on this trek is a surreal visual treat and much more than we can explain. The cool monsoon winds in the midst of the clouds and rain make this trek an experience to remember forever!
About the location : At a distance of 17 km from Matheran and 8 km from Diksal, Garbett Point or Garbut Point is located near Matheran with a grand view of the plateau below. The huge plateau overlooks various waterfalls from the neighboring mountains. Trekking to the Garbett Point is also one of the top things to do in Matheran and one of the most scenic places to visit near Mumbai.
Garbut Point, situated at a 5 km walking distance from Matheran Railway Station, is a comparatively secluded and less visited vantage point. Flanked by a gorgeous valley on one side and the thick jungle on the other, Garbett Point is a place from where enthralling views of sunrise and sunset can be observed.
The difficulty level of this trek is MODERATE, however this is an Endurance based trek.
This means the ease of climbing up to the summit is Moderate, however the duration of the trek is long. Participants must be mentally ready to walk for a few hours.
The trek duration is 5 hours. There will be stops during the trek for rest and rehydration.
If you haven't been for a trek, you should know that there is a lot of walking. Moderate treks begin to present more of a challenge to first time trekkers. So these treks are suitable for anyone looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. However, we believe that the best views come after the hardest climbs. The payoff is always equivalent to the effort.
At every summit, you are welcomed by the most majestic views & at the end of every trek, you learn that you are taking back home a lifetime of memories.
