Great Trek Locations Near Mumbai

The weather! No seriously, the weather! Isn’t it just the most beautiful thing at this time of year? Oh, wait. You don’t agree? It’s mucky, makes you sweaty, it’s horrible to travel in, especially to go to work, and the number of shoes you’ve ruined is heartbreaking? But what if we could take all that misery related to this weather, and make it disappear for a bit? Replace the water-logged roads with open spaces surrounded by greenery? Would you change your mind then? We genuinely think so.

To help you out with this, we’ve come up with some suggestions for you to plan a trek around Mumbai with friends this weekend, so that you can really soak in the joys the monsoons bring, with vibrant greens, misty showers, fresh air, and a small stall selling hot tea and hotter pakodas. So get out your whatsapp groups, and get planning!
