Beauty of this place is just breathless. Waterfalls all round and so many colors of green will just remind you of "Hulk" (jokingly). Air is amazingly fresh and good to take in. One will literally drive into the clouds and touch them, feel the little drops of water touch you and lift you to completely next zone. Kudos to the ST bus drivers who transport people via this route. It's very much prone to land slides and water gushing over the roads. Nature at it's best and we don't do justice to the place, by parking cars on road sides (instead of designated parking spots), cross the roads without giving head to traffic, eat own stuff or stuff sold by sellers on the route (throw the waste on road assuming it will be cleaned) .
The drive though was peaceful once i crossed Bhiwandi and onto the Nashik highway. (i still don't understand why toll is collected in Mumbai area roads are bad, infra is pathetic). Series of straights and winding roads through some of really good agricultural land lead me to Malshej ghat.
From start of the ghat till the very top you will see unruly people parking their cars on road sides and enjoying the waterfalls besides the road. Best thing about Malshej is you don't need to wander off to find a good waterfall as it gives you various kinds of waterfalls and it seems like a "buffet of waterfalls" is being served.
