Trek to Kataldhar Waterfall (Ex-Pune)

The monsoon brings with it many adventures in Maharashtra; and the Kataldhar waterfall is one that you won't forget! During the summer, this waterfall dries up, but as the land turns green around, the flow of this fall thunders down over the rocks, filling the air around you with a fine spray. While Lonavala has many trekking destinations, Kataldhar is its hidden gem. Offering a thrilling and challenging route through slippery stretches and dense forests, Kataldhar waterfall has a breathtaking view. It is however recommended to take this trek with expert guides, as it’s extremely easy to lose your way through these forests.
