Vagabond Experiences presents,

Into The Wild (Monsoon trek to Garbett Plateau)

Garbett Plateau is one of the most scenic treks in all of Maharashtra. Although it is situated close to Matheran, it has still survived commercialization. Escape the city and head into the serenity of the hills as we walk along the Dhom lake and tread through rustic villages on this trek. The lush green beauty of the Sahyadris is seen only in the monsoons making the view from the top simply spectacular! So grab your rain jackets, lace up those shoes and follow us #IntoTheWild!

 

About the trek:

Difficulty level: Easy-Moderate

Base village: Diksal

Summit height: 2,625 ft

Time taken to climb/descend: 3-4 hrs climb / 1.5 hrs descent

The total distance of trek: 8 km

I highly recommend choosing Vagabond as your travel partners for Spiti! I went to their fire-flies Bhandardara trip with a friend in June 2018, and then alone to Spiti in August 2018. Both the times, it was overwhelmingly positive, fun and memorable! In Spiti, from the ground you stand on to as far as your eyes can see, everything is awe-inspiringly beautiful. You dont really have to venture specifically to go to a beautiful spot. All of it is beautiful! And the trip organisers let us savour this stunning landscape in as much of its entirety as possible, sometimes making brief car-stops to just savour what lies in front of us, or moving around scheduled things if majority of us wanted to revisit a spot or stay at a spot for a little longer. They not only knew the usual tourist spots, but also those tucked away, the unusual and hidden ones. One evening, they took us to a cafe which was hosting an open mic evening, a documentary screening, and they had the cafe prepare a sumptuous local cuisine just for us! They made sure we got a taste of the local and the authentic. We savoured Spiti Coffee, Momos, Thukpa, Yam cheese, as well as apple orchards, river valleys, mountain tops, green-pea fields, ancient monasteries and some of the most delicious food!Whether it was travel, food, sight-seeing, stay or occasional unforeseen emergencies, they were very responsible and had everything in control. You can also be assured of great music for the road and some strange, fun games! The best part of going with Vagabond is that they let you be. They arent icy rigid with the itenary, youre free to do what you want to do, to wander and drift, to join their plan or stay back and do your own thing. They let you explore the place on your terms, at your own pace. As someone who was traveling alone, I felt safe and comfortable all throughout the trip. The organisers are very approachable and always friendly.I highly, highly, highly recommend choosing Vagabond as your travel organisers. - by Raushan for Back-Pack-Go!
