Malshej ghat - Maharastra


This beautiful place is 120kms away from Pune city. It falls in the Shadow area of Western gahts, awesome place to visit.


Malshejghat has several plateaus that offer excellent views. One of the most attractive features about this place is the views afforded during the Monsoons with the lush greenery, the misty mountains and waterfalls dotting the landscape. The lake, where one can see hundreds of flamingoes in winter, is a unique sight.


Shivneri Fort that lies around 40 kms away is famous as the birthplace of the Maratha ruler, Shivaji. One can also visit some of the many Buddhist Caves going back to the 3rd century in the area.


Tourists can make a trip to the Shri Vighneshwar temple situated at Ozar near Junnar town.
