Mumbai Event: Nature Hike to Mumbai’s Highest Point

Starting:
21st October 2017

Nature Hike to Mumbai’s Highest Point

Discover the forests in your neighborhood. Beyond the swings, slides and clearings, there are trails, trees, wildlife and water just waiting for you. Engage your senses and spend some quality time with yourself, your family and friends.

The Highest Point trail is one of the otherwise inaccessible trails of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Cross streams, negotiate rocky hill slopes, and breathe in the beautiful forest vistas as you continue to quench your thirst for a nice invigorating hike. If you do manage to reach the highest point, then you have a surreal panorama of the 3 lakes viz. Tulsi, Vihar and Powai in front of you against the back drop of the city. The highest point trek is indeed a trekker’s delight and that too right within the financial capital of India.
