If you want to calm your senses and enjoy the monsoon then just get going to Malshej Ghat that's about 140 km from Mumbai. We chose to drive and started around 7 am from Mumbai and reached Malshej Ghat around 10.30 am. Once you cross Ulhasnagar, the roads are pretty good for a lovely drive with greenery on either side. On the way, you will see a number of waterfalls. There's a MTDC eatery right on the top where you can halt and grab some snacks while you enjoy the gorgeous view. A few kilometres away from this eatery there is the Junnar lake. The road to reach the actual lake has a little rough patch. You can either drive or walk down this lane to reach the lake. Sit, meditate, relax, and enjoy while you're there.
