10. Lonar -This is a crater which is said to have been formed long ago when a large meteorite crashed on the earth forming this crater. This is now however a trekkers’ destination and one of the best weekend getaways from Mumbai. Trek route is quite difficult for new trekkers. It is a slippery way with an undulating terrain. The steps you see here are artificial and tend to crumble away very easily. As you get successful to enter the crater, you can visit the temples of Renukadevi, Ganapati, Daityasudana and Gaimukh. Legends also say that Emperor Akbar used to bath with soaps made from the green waters of this crater cum lake.
