  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a thrilling night trek in the Sahyadri hills and explore the location of the ancient Mahuli Fort. Hiking over narrow pathways across the mountains, you'll climb over giant boulders and rock-cut steps, using a flashlight or torch to navigate under the starlight, night sky. After arriving at the fort, post a 3-hr trek over relatively easy trails, you'll await views of a glorious sunrise from the top. In the wee hours of dawn, you'll explore the Mahuli Fort and click instagram-worthy photos before beginning the return trek, concluding an adventurous night with a delicious breakfast at the base village.

    Destination

    Mahuli Fort, with easy access and proximity to Mumbai, is a popular trekking destination for travellers from Mumbai. The fort itself, the highest point in the Thane district, dates back to the 14th century, even as most of the fortifications now lay in ruins. The forest surrounding the fort, declared a sanctuary, is dense and overgrown with monsoon-fed river streams running down from the fort. The mountains, atop which the fort resides at 2,800 feet, are a group of more than two peaks with a complex of plateaus and pinnacles.

    Destination highlights

    • Go on a night trek to Mahuli Fort.
    • Catch stunning, nocturnal views of Sahyadri mountains.
    • Watch the beautiful sunrise from the top.
