This is another small paragraph.

  • Trip introduction

    Garbett Plateau is one of the lesser-known locations close to Matheran. It looks like it should be a on a postcard. From the top, there's plenty to see: cloudy skies, grazing cattle, shimmering water bodies, and views of distant hills. This day trek to Garbett Plateau is the perfect adventure if you are looking for a quick getaway with a moderate climb.

    Destination

    Located at an altitude of 2625 feet in the hidden hilly regions of Bhivpuri village in Diksal, the plateau of Garbett offers spectacular views of the landscape around. You'll start the trek from Bhivpuri, and will head directly out to the plateau. You'll trek along a green path, with trees around you and lush grass underfoot. As you get closer to the plateau, there are some steep sections that require some exertion and rock-climbing. But it's all worth it in the end.

    Destination highlights

    • Explore one of the lesser-known points in Matheran.
    • Trek over a sprawling green plateau under the monsoon sky.
    • Splash about under a waterfall.
    • Try a short rock-climbing stretch to get to the plateau.
