Karnala Bird Sanctuary, less well known for its birds, is one of the closest trek spots to Mumbai. It's a great place for first-timers to get a hang of trekking. The trails are well marked and maintained, and the grade is easy to medium throughout (except close to the fort entrance--yup, there's a fort up the hill). Monsoons really bring... More

This fort lies in the vicinity of karnala bird sanctuary. Best time to visit the fort is during winter and monsoon else you get dehydrated in summer unless you carry sufficient water. Many trekkers visit this place on weekends also seen many families do outing here who have a very pleasant time. There are many informative hoardings at the entrance... More

Durshet Forest Lodge is also known as Nature Trails resort. Take a train to Khopoli from dadar station on the central line. Since Khopoli trains are few you can take Karjat train and from Karjat you can take Khopoli train. Check timings in mindicator on your mobile. Get down at Khopoli and take a ricksaw to reach the place. It... More

Karnala Bird Sanctuary. Do not go by the name. You will not find much birds here. Yes some birds will definitely catch your attraction. This is also one of the best place for basic treckers and they can enjoy trekking here. Lets start our journey. From Mumbai go to Harbour Railway Station and catch a local train to Panvel. Get...

This fort is situated close to Mumbai with proper connectivity and basic facilities like parking space, approach paths, signage boards displaying history and pathways, resting places on the way and simple but good food huts. There are water cisterns atop the fort at the base of pinnacle. This feature makes this place a worth for family trekkers and bird watchers.

Due to its proximity to Navi Mumbai, its one of my favourite place to take a quick escape. Good to spend some peaceful time with your family and good for bird photographers. If you have small kids, you may not trek the entire hill to reach fort. you can spend some quality time at the base itself. Kids will enjoy... More

A great place for trek and bird watching. You should visit Jan-Mar as you will be able to watch many birds and the weather shall be cool for a good trek. You can take road or train (via Panvel) to visit the place. Do carry water with you but avoid carrying plastic bottles/ bags.
