About the Experience
One of our oldest trails in the J&H kitty is the Karjat South Hike. We've been climbing up and down this particular trail since the past 10 years.
This trail is one of our favorite hikes close to Mumbai that offers a pleasantly panoramic view of a major lake in the Karjat area.
This hike can be defined as a straight up climb where one will cover elevation gain quickly.
After 1.5 hrs of climbing, we arrive at a dense plateau. The area is covered in thick shrubbery and wild grass. The landscape is quite untouched by human activity and raw. This is why we always plan a hike here.
As usual, we do not disclose the exact whereabouts of the location to protect it. We can tell you it is in the Karjat area. 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 request to keep the whereabouts of the location to yourself only.
