Monsoon Travel Destinations – Malshej Ghats

Enjoying rainy waterfalls

The Western Ghats in Maharashtra are amongst the world’s best for Monsoon Romantic travel escapades. Khandala, Lonavala, Malshej Ghat, etc. are some exotic places where young couples, families, and people of all cadre throng to enjoy fun times.

I recently had an opportunity to experience the beauty of Malshej Ghat near Pune. Malshej Ghat was one of the best places I have visited during the monsoon. The ghats were simply mind-blowing and I had never seen so much greenery in my life at one single place.

the view of the white streams of water flowing between the greenery on the mountains was just awesome.

Malshej Ghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range and the site is nestled in the lofty rugged hills. The place is about 2200 feet above sea level and is categorised as a Hillside Hamlet. It is one of the most favourite monsoon getaways for locals of Pune and Mumbai.

Since Malshej ghat is not far from Pune and Mumbai, the place has only a few deluxe accommodation options. MTDC Flamingo resort where I stayed is the best deluxe accommodations with all facilities. Since the area is at a considerable distance from a small town, there are not many posh restaurants and shopping malls. So you are left with you or your partner amongst the greens and the monsoon waterfalls.

The monsoon waterfalls are the beauties of the area in the hilly regions. During the months of June-Sept Malshej Ghat comes alive when innumerable waterfalls abound in the area. The area is renowned for its spontaneous waterfalls which form due to the torrential downpour it gets. Various waterfalls from small to huge ones are really worth seeing and many are right next to the highway.

It is an awesome place to visit. Cool, breezy, and silent. Few food joint options are available. It’s more of a place for couples, and the best time is the rainy season
