Camping in the beautiful meadows surrounded with the rhododendrons and birch trees makes the trip unforgettable.

Kohoj is a hill fort situated 100 km north of Mumbai on the Wada-Manor highway. It is around 800 years old and is one of the forts surrendered to the Mughals in the Purandar treaty. Today, this fort serves as a perfect trekking destination during monsoons. A beautiful Pazhar lake lies to the base of this mountain. A rock resembling the shape of a human is a major point of attraction at the top. Apart from this pillar, one can also find Kohoj devi temple near to a small lake at the top.
The fort is named after saint Goraknath, who used to perform penance here. It was used in the era of Shivaji Maharaj, mainly as a stopover point from Junnar via Naneghat. The adjoining Machindragad peak is named after the teacher-disciple relationship of Machindranath and Gorakhnath. During monsoon season, the Gorakhgad Trek takes on a whole new appearance. While there, take a moment to observe, listen and smell and you will feel the forest come alive around you. The view of the numerous cascading waterfalls and a large range of wildflowers only add to its charm.
There are very few hill forts to the north of Sahyadri’s and Tandulwadi is one of them. It lies 104 km north of Mumbai near a distant suburb called Saphale. It was mainly used as a watch tower to guard nearby areas. It gives a bird’s eye view of the town of Saphale, the Zanzorli lake and the confluence of Surya and Vaitarna rivers. The primary ownership of the fort lied with the Gujarat Sultanate which was later transferred to the Portugues & Marathas in the early 18th century. The fort now lies in ruins but offers a great opportunity for nature lovers and historians to explore.
Irshalgad is a fortress located between Matheran and Panvel in Maharashtra. The area of the fort is not large but there are several water cisterns cut from the rock. The nearest village is Irshalwadi. The easy trail enchants some magnificient views over Morbe Dam, Prabalgad and Matheran plateaus. We rate this as most beautiful and easy trek in and around Karjat.
Hamta Pass is an unusual, special pass. It climbs out of lush green valleys of Kullu to an overhang high in the mountains. The overhang you stand on is a window to a drastically different world: the deserts of Lahaul. From the pass, you see the Lahaul valley in one wide panoramic sweep! It is one the most surreal twists in landscape you’ll see! The Chandratal Lake Trek with Hamta Pass, a treasure trove for the ardent as well amateur trekkers, holds the charm and allurement like any other treks in the Himalayas. Although a short trek, the scenic landscape exposes trails that meander through alpine forests, huge rock formations, and remarkably rich vegetation.
