Hello all,
I would like to know abut places to trek to near mumbai other than rajmachi & maybe the walk upto matheran ( if that qualifies for a trek :s). I was going through the maharastra forum & found out about malshej. Are there other places like malshej where i can trek to? Ideally a 2-3 day trek.Please suggest....thx

Ronak, i have myself not visit Shirota, but plan to do it in Nov/dec, its a couple of hours trek. Its a pvt lake used by Tata Power for hydel power generation, One is to go from Lonavala to a small village Vaksai and from there onwards by foot up a hill and then down onto the lake, let me visit it and will surly post a report. Plan to do it with my wife this time, hope she comes along....

Cheers

It seems this is the lake Andre frequently visits (During our IM meet we discussed)
Hope your wife agrees to come with you on trek.

Matheran or Munnar hill station? I guess not a proper trek though...
