Trek Event: Waterfall Sunday At Jawhar
Every now and then, the fast-paced life of the city becomes a pain and we love to escape this life by either doing some fun activities or by going away from the city for a while. Spending a few days in the midst of nature can make you refreshed and ready to return back to the city. Jawhar in Maharashtra is one such place.
Escape The City Life
Jawhar is located at a distance of 121 km from Mumbai and is absolutely stunning to visit during the monsoon and winter seasons. Its location in the tribal region of the country makes it a destination that is not well-explored as well. You will get a chance to discover the beauty of Maharashtra here with its lush forests, valleys and pleasant climate. Moreover, you can discover the tribal communities like Warli, Kolcha, and Kukana which reside here.
Hills and Highways will take you to this scenic destination that is situated at a height of 518 meters above the sea level, this hill station has a cool climate throughout the year and has lush cover. However, it is during monsoon that this area is at the peak of its beauty. It gets covered with thick forest and you will be able to see numerous waterfalls forming all around you. Although the beauty is similar to the other hill stations in the state, Jawhar is one place where you can experience the true tranquility of nature as it is not a popular tourist destination yet. This is your chance to see the beauty of nature in its pristine form.
There are many scenic spots in Jawhar if you’re looking to explore the region. Dabhosa Waterfall is one such place where you can see water gushing down with tremendous force from a height of 300 feet! During monsoon, the water flow is so powerful that you’ll be engulfed in the mist in no time! You will also get to see the Khad-Khad Dam Waterfall and one hidden waterfall that is not well-known and is in its pristine form.
You will also get to see the beauty of the Jai Vilas Palace of Jawhar with its neo-classical architecture. You will also get to stroll in the scenic gardens surrounding the palace. The trip will then take you to Hanuman Point, where you can seek blessings from the almighty and then enjoy the scenic views of the valley all-around. Another place that you’ll get to see on your trip is Shirpamal, which is a monument dedicated to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and is more than 3 centuries old. It is located on the top of the highest hill in the area and you can see the beauty of Jawhar unfold in front of your eyes from here.
