The Pearl of Palghar
10th July, 2022
27th Aug, 2022
This Hike is open to only fully vaccinated individuals
This is our 5th guided hike to this location.
An early morning hike to a lesser-known mountain near Mumbai
We recently discovered this new unknown or possibly lesser-known location. If you know us well, you would know by now that we are always on the lookout for mountains that have not yet suffered the impact of a1000 trampling humans.
As usual, we do not disclose the exact whereabouts of the location to protect it. We can tell you it is in the Palghar range - The exact location will be disclosed 2 days prior.
Distance from Mumbai (Bandra E): 95 Kms
Approximate travel time: Around 2 hrs from Bandra E.
We meet at the trek base at 6.30 am.
The distance from Mumbai may be a tad bit longer than many hikes around Mumbai, however, the fact that it is unexplored, isolated, and away from all the crowds makes it a very attractive proposition to us.
Let us bask in mountain glory!
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.
- Meet at 6.30 am at the base of the mountain
- Hike up to the summit for 2 hours
- Relax & explore the vast summit area
- Open our meals atop
- Take a dip in the cistern if it still bears water
- Hike back down
- Back in Mumbai by afternoon
Rs 2499/- per head
