The road trip from Mumbai to Malshej ghats is one of the most scenic ones in Maharashtra. The picturesque mountain pass is situated in the western ghats and is abound in flora & fauna. The visit during rains and the hot chai along the road is one of my most treasured memories. Do not forget to go bird-watching when you get there.
Best time to visit Malshej:
It is best visited during the months of Monsoon, June to September.
How to get to Malshej:
From Kalyan, Malshej is 85 km and you need to hire a taxi from there to drive up the ghats. Regular state bus transport is also available from Mumbai easily. Either way, you will enjoy your ride up.
How do you make it under 5K?
Malshej offers homestays and cheap affordable hotels for budget travellers. Food and activity should be around 300 INR to 600 INR.
Total expense on a budget:
700 to 1500 INR per day
These destinations have been family favourites while growing up but they are versatile in the kind of tourism they offer. I have loved going to these places even with my friends and you can turn any of these into a romantic getaway.
So all we need to do now is cross our fingers and wait for the doors of these magical places to open for tourism . Which one would you visit first? Let me know in comments.
