Description
Malshej ghat is beautiful throughout the year. From the new tourist point made near the tunnel in Malshej ghat have you ever noticed there is a trail that descends into the valley? It starts near MTDC and ends near the base of Kalu Waterfall. The route is ancient with a carving of Guardian God Ganesha and water Carstens and occasional rock-cut steps. Most of the path is shaded and you hardly get exposed to Sun. In the month of October, the trail is decorated with various wildflowers. There is a reference of Maratha army descending from this route during Vasai Expedition against Portuguese. After the trek, we get a chance to take a dip in clear blue waters of Kalu river and relax the muscles. With extended monsoon, there are smaller waterfalls throughout the route which makes the route very enjoyable.
