Dhondane is a tall plunge waterfall situated in Mumbai – Alibaug highway, Maharashtra. The water thunders down into a pool like a giant spout and foams at the bottom. The waterfall weaves itself with the threads of watery fabric and the tips of the rocks pierce it. The fresh air born from the parsley green forests will flood your senses and leave you enthralled.
When should you visit?
The best time to see the waterfall is during the monsoon season, i.e., July to October. The freshly poured rain feeds the waterfall, growing its size and the surroundings are abloom with greenery.
How to get there?
The Dhondane waterfall falls on the same path as the Sagargadh trek that starts from the Khandale village. On the way to Alibaug, take the exit for the Khandale village. It is located 8 km from Alibaug. The trek to the top is approximately two hours but the falls arrive before you reach the top. There are guided tours that start from Mumbai for around 1300 INR.
India hosts innumerable such gems and sometimes it is absolutely impossible to note down the "crème de la crème" based on personal perspectives. All of the above waterfall mentioned have one thing in common, they are meant for travellers who indulge in exploring their senses and hearts.
