Malshej Ghat is a wildly beautiful haven of towering peaks and bottomless valleys, home to a hundred different kinds of flora and fauna, and mountain air so fragrant and pure, you wish you could capture the scent and take it back home with you. Miles upon miles of rolling meadows and paddies neatly stitched into a huge quilt of varying greens, the peaks hiding behind rolling mists and blue-grey monsoon clouds all vie for your attention.
This is a very old route which was in use before the ghat roadways were built. This route gives magnificent views of harishchandragad, rohidas, bhairavgad, kombada, thidbi.
