Visit The Green And Cool Tamhini Ghats Just Two Hours Away From Mumbai

Tamhini Ghat

Shortcut

The gorgeous Tamhini Ghats fall between Mulshi and Tamhini, just a two-hour drive from Mumbai for seekers of nature and greenery. Tamhini Ghat is the perfect monsoon getaway, with its sprawling green ghats, misty roads and cascading waterfalls that come into existence with the ample rainfall the area receives.

What Makes It Awesome

The ghats are pictureque, lush green and everything that Mumbai may not be. Cutting off from the Sahydari ranges, the hilly ghats make for a spectacular visual road trip with mist drifting off the slopes on either side of the road. With its ethereal landscapes, the ghats attract a lot of day trippers from Pune and Mumbai. 

In fact, since one has to cross the backwater of Mulshi Dam to get there, there’s a lot more to do than just drive along. Though be warned, the road often can get murky and potholes can get in the way of a soothing drive. One can go on to explore the Mulshi dam, a temple of Vanjai, the goddess, or the Sinhagad Fort.

Pro-TIp

If you’re looking to get away from the city for a day, it’s an ideal one-day getaway. The drive to Tamhini is short and full of views. Once you do reach the ghats, it’s a treat for the eyes to see the quintessential dark clouds rolling in from the hills, the cascading waterfalls splashing down the slopes or just the smell of wet mud around you.

Tamhini ghats are approximately 140 kilometers away from Mumbai. If you’re going by road {and we suggest you do}, take the Mumbai-Goa highway towards Kolad, cross the bridge and go towards Pune via the Mulshi dam backwaters. It’s a stretch of 15 kilometres almost like the Scottish Highlands.
