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

    Jayati posted on 16 March

    What Is It?

    The gorgeous Tamhini Ghats fall between Mulshi and Tamhini, just a two-hour drive from Mumbai for seekers of nature and greenary. 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.

    How Do I Get There?

    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 except the ghats come alive during the rains.

    A road trip is definitely the way to explore the Ghats and take it all they have to offer.

    What's So Unique About It?

    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 washed out by the monsoon rain attract a lot of day trippers from Pune and Mumbai. The June to September time is the best time to go here, however all year round the views remain the same sans the exaggerated greenary.

    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.

    Why Should I Go?

    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.

    In fact, according to a study reported by the Hindustan Times, these ghats take on fifth place to receive maximum amount of rainfall, falling behind Cherrapunji. In fact, Tamhini ghats are the wettest stations in the North-Western ghats, beating Mahabaleshwar.

    Anything Else?

    The best time is to go during the rains, and experience the pouring down in the ghats. If you’re on a bike, make sure to carry waterproof clothes and shoes, and possibly a raincoat.
