I think I committed the biggest mistake by trekking here in the monsoon. To add to my ordeal, I went with a heavy backpack, slippery sandals, and an umbrella in hand. It was beautiful and green. But the rocks and surface become slippery in the rains. The view from the top is awesome. It takes approx 2 hrs to climb... More

An awesome place just one and half hour drive from Mumbai for all the trekking and nature lovers .. The fort is approx 2 hours trek from base .. Have to be very careful in rainy season as its slippery .. But awesome climate and greenery all around makes it a perfect spot for one day picnic..

The worst place to go for non trekkers! No water service and no saftey measures taken! And its likely to break soon since it has become weak bz of the rains and heavy air. Its very steep also. No doubt the view is good but i dnt find it worth it!

Karnala Fort and bird park always attract nature lovers to see nature closely. Several groups both locals and visitors comes in the weekend to see the biodiversity of the park and see the ruin fort. Trekkers always loved to reach the fort and especially after monsoon, it becomes very beautiful.

If you love trekking, do visit karnala fort. It was an observatory deck during Maratha era. To observe trade between Kalyan and Alibaugh this deck was erected. Karnala is a bird sanctuary which has too many animals and birds. Trekking experience is mind blowing. Must have stamina and encouragement. It takes around 2.30 hours to climb the highest peak.
