All About It
- 1 Days
- Difficulty - Moderate
Garbett Plateau is one of the most scenic treks in all of Maharashtra. Although it is situated close to Matheran, it has still survived commercialization. Escape the city and head into the serenity of the hills as we walk along the Dhom lake and tread through rustic villages on this trek. The lush green beauty of the Sahyadris is seen only in the monsoons making the view from the top simply spectacular! So grab your rain jackets, lace up those shoes and follow us #IntoTheWild!
