Wouldn’t you rather cross a river instead of that hour-long traffic back home? Take a break from your routine and go on an adventure, close to home. Find treks and camping experiences, firefly watching events and more! Attend curated events around Mumbai's backyard - Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar, Amboli, Jawhar, Malshej Ghat and more. Read on to check what you can do.

Camping: Sleep under a star-studded ceiling

It's just you, the tent, and the open sky. Simply choose your setting: on a hilltop, by a lake, on the beach, or next to a fort. You can expect bonfires, barbecues, and a beautiful sunrise. (you won't even need an alarm clock). There are camps that have movies, live music, and more. In the right season, you can go firefly watching too! You could choose to unwind by Lake Pawna, watch fireflies at spots like Prabalmachi and Bhandardara, or sit by the campfire at Karjat. Pick what you like from a whole bunch of fantastic camping experiences around Mumbai.

Trekking: What every morning walk should look like!

Sure, it's a bit of a climb. Sure, you'll work up a sweat. But those views are all worth it! Find treks for everyone: Simple ones like Tikona Fort, Karnala Sanctuary, Rajmachi, Kalavantin, Peb; tougher ones like Kalsubai, Harishchandragadh, Lohagad and Bhimashankar. There are also treks close to home (including some in Sanjay Gandhi National Park) and some that are in another state but can be done over a weekend (trekkers in Mumbai usually head to Jog Falls in Karnataka and the legendary Dudhsagar Falls in Goa).

Whether you're a first-time trekker or someone who's seasoned at scaling peaks, you can choose from a number of treks around Mumbai that are perfect for you!

Cycling: For a wheely good adrenaline rush.

If you don’t fancy the thought of dodging traffic in peak summer afternoons, there's another side to cycling in the city: At night! When things quiet down (and also cool down!), the cycling community comes alive in parts of Marine Drive and Colaba. You can explore cycling hotspots tucked away in the calmer areas of Uttan and Gorai too. There are several tour organizers who help you get your pedalling fix. Some even teach you about the city while you're at it! Check out all cycling events in Mumbai, here.

Adventure sports: Add a bit of tadka to your trip!

What's an adventure if you haven’t stepped out of your comfort zone? Give adventure sports a go, including the likes of white water rafting and waterfall rappelling in spots like Kolad. Fly high and beyond, with paragliding events around the city! There are motorcycle tours to spend some quality time with your bike as well. Put your trip into first gear by exploring adventure events here.

Want to go far, far away?

You'll find a wide variety of adventure, sporting, and leisure things to do near Mumbai. In case you want to feel completely away from the city, you can opt to head up to Ladakh and other corners of the country. How about that trip to Sikkim that's been on your bucket list for a while now? Check out all these and more for some offbeat events!
