    This rain-soaked monsoon adventure takes you to ancient Buddhist caves, and on a trek through a forest. But the highlight of this trip is the rappelling, where you'll lower yourself off the edge of a 115-foot waterfall, with the rainwater gushing down on either side of you! It's a thrilling adventure, and will be an experience you'll never forget.

    IMPORTANT: This trip cost is for those joining from Pune and includes transport. If you want to join from Mumbai or any other city, you will have to get to Karjat railway station by 08:00 hrs and the cost does not include train travel costs. The trip cost for this will be INR 1040 per person.

    Destination

    The Kondana waterfall cascades down the rocks from a height of about 115 feet, near the Kondana caves. To get to the caves, you have to trek through a lush green forest for about an hour. It's a secluded spot, with only other adventurers visiting, in search of their next thrill. The waterfall is wide and high, and during the monsoon is fierce. You'll have a great time trying to keep your balance here, and can expect to be completely drenched by the end of it.
