Scenic views. Nice trek. But last stretch is too steep. Only if u want to experience something adventurous attempt the last kund trek. Lush greenery. Soothing atmosphere. And if u come with it kids few animals on display. Food counter is average

Maharashtra is something else during the monsoons. If you are looking for a easy to mid-level hike, do drive to Karnala. The hike to the Karnala Fort is simple and re-energising. Start early so that you reach the top by noon, giving you enough time...More
