• Trip introduction

    Every Mumbaikar knows Matheran, but there's a lesser-known paradise that only adventure lovers know about, close to Matheran. Escape the crowds and trek to One Tree Hill. Here, the trail leads you through a dense forest which is even more lush in the monsoon, all the way up to the mysterious summit, where only one tree has stood for years. There are many legends around this tree, but nobody knows why nothing else has ever grown here.

    This is a fairly easy trek with a 10 km walk through a scenic landscape, and great viewpoints.
