About the Experience
Easy to Moderate Grade | Super convenient to travel to | Open to all ages | Undiscovered
We're calling this hike - Cafe Ideal because when you find a trail no-one else has been on, you have the luxury of naming it whatever you like.
You will be the 1st set of hiking enthusiasts that shall walk over this trail.
We are opening this monsoon 2023 season with a set of brand new trails that have never been explored, have zero to negligible human activity, and in no possible way are on anyone's bucket-lists.
Prior to the season start, Sam made his way recceing a bunch of routes we found interesting that kept us away from the crowds & madness that generally rises at the onset of the monsoon in Mumbai. This is one of them.
The trail has a gradual ascent and is perfect for everyone to start the hiking season with. It is ideal for both children & older outdoor enthusiasts as well due to it's gentle approach.
After 1.5 hours of climbing, we will arrive at the top of the mountain.
The true luxury of this this hike is that it shall give us the privilege of being out on a mountain by ourselves.
As usual, we do not disclose the exact whereabouts of the location to protect it. We can tell you it is in the Palghar area & that it will fall within a travel time of 1.5 hours from the city. The exact location will be disclosed 2 days prior.
Why we don't disclose locations online & Responsible Outdoor Tourism
If you aren't aware yet, then you should know that we do our best to host our outdoor trips responsibly and reduce the detrimental impact on the environment.
Since the past few years, we have noticed how social media, irresponsible & over-tourism in the Maharashtrian mountains has ruined the great outdoors we have. A significant number of treks in Maharashtra receive thousands of irresponsible humans that cause severe environmental damage.
In order to reduce the impact and not contribute to it, we host our experiences in lesser-known, hidden, or unexplored locations in the mountains.
When you do join us on this trek, there is a very strong ask to keep the whereabouts of the location to yourself only.
