The Hidden Nature Trail of Mumbai
is a trail for a child, adult, and even a senior.
Most importantly it's for one with a keen interest in everything alive in the forest
Led by our Naturalist & Wildlife Expert
We intend to still keep this Mumbai's best secret
*All adults must be fully vaccinated
This trail is the perfect trail for watching butterflies, dragonflies, birds, and other life forms that inhabit this forest.
Depending on season one can spot a variety of birds like Tickell's Blue, Asian Paradise Flycatcher, and much more.
Who is this trail for & Why
As mentioned at the start, this trail is for everybody.
The walk is gradual and not tiring. It is covered with tree canopies and thus the walk stays very pleasant throughout.
Parents, we insist you bring your kids along. This walk is a great way to give your children their dose of nature in a very relaxed environment.
Birders / Wildlife enthusiasts, you do want to carry your pair of binocs. Last time, we saw a passel of wild boars apart from a bunch of birds.
Only if luck is on our side this time too. Fingers crossed 🤞

Your role as a Responsible Adventurer
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 request to keep the whereabouts of the location to yourself.
What we'll take care of
We will ensure that you have a great time with us in the mountains. We focus on a few things only:
1. Naturalist Guiding & Absolutely Professional Hosting
2. Super Safety
3. Keeping our experiences Exclusive & Small sized always
You will be hosted by a team led of certified Wilderness First Responders & Aiders. Get to know us & our certifications by checking out https://www.jackandhilladventures.com/about
