Garbett Plateau is one of the most scenic treks of Maharashtra. Situated close to Matheran, it has survived heavy commercialization and remains to be relatively untouched by humans.
Escape the city life and head into the serenity of the hills as we walk along the Dhom lake and cross through hidden villages on this trek. We will be hiking this trail through the darkness of the night and reaching the summit just in time for sunrise, making the view from the top worthwhile and absolutely dramatic!
