The Secret of Palghar
Yes, you read that right! We’re taking you on a trek to an undisclosed location in Maharashtra. This trek is part of Jack’s Secret Series. In order to host our outdoor trips responsibly and reduce the detrimental impact on the environment, we conduct secret treks & camps to undiscovered or lesser explored mountains that are grand in every sense.
By not disclosing the name of the location, the Secret Series helps us to ensure that we do not contribute to popularizing and over populating the few majestic locations in Maharashtra.
Trust us… it sure is a secret worth keeping. The trek route goes through a lush green and thick jungle and that's what makes it one of the best treks in Maharashtra.
About the location : The trek will be hosted near a beautiful coastal town that is nestled between the sea to the west and the mountains to the east. This region has the maximum number of forts as compared to other regions and yes, you’ll be trekking to a fort.
The top of this fort is adorned with thick vegetation. You can spot some relics of Portuguese origin during the trek. Sounds intriguing, doesn't it?
The difficulty level of this trek is EASY.
This means the ease of climbing up to the summit is Easy.
Uphill is approx 2 hours of trekking while downhill is shorter. 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.
At every summit, you are welcomed to the most majestic views & at the end of every trek, you learn that you are taking back home lifetime memories
