Fantastic pics of Zenith, Panchgani, Mahabaleshwar and Wai.
For Thosegar, liked the July pics when the volume was HUGE.

Kaas pics are definitely beautiful. I doubt whether I would be able to make it this season, but definitely next year.

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful pics

Hey Ashish,
The temple on the hillock is "yamai mata mandir" and is just next to the musuem, the "volcano" like hill is visible at a distance from the the muesuem backyard, I dont think there is a temple there.

Glad you liked the pics.

Regards.

Thanks SDP, In July, Thoseghar was in full spate and it was an amazing sight then, now its down to a trickle, same goes for Kass, there is only a 2-3 week window to visit the place. Lesson I learnt, was to go to places when they are expected and reputed to be in bloom (never mind the crowd) else we miss out on the spectacle.

Regards,

+1 to that. Pray that everything goes as per our schedule and the hearing gets postponed.
Thanks F1, how are the drive and meet plans shaping up? Make sure to visit the Aundh Palace Musuem too.

Default Matheran - Sept '10

Just a small photologue of my Matheran trip in mid-sept. Left Mumbai at 6am and made our way to Zenith Falls at Khopoli. Reached by 8.00am , there was not a single soul out there so early and we had a blast, it was like a private jacuzzi!

Then moved on to Mahad to take darshan of the Siddhivinayak Ganpati there and from there went on to Matheran. Let a few pics tell the rest of the story.

Walking up the tracks to Matheran

Charlotte Lake

Waterfall Lake near Charlotte Lake. There is a vantage point from where we can peer down the fall much like Jog although 10 times smaller!

What were the type of rooms/rates in the Whistling Woods Estate? I've heard and read quite a bit some good stuff about this place.

Hi Triedeverything (already??),
Whistling Woods is a small quaint place. I guess they have just 6 rooms and the tariff would be around 1800/-.

Regards,
Nikhil.

Guys,
Am updating this thread after quite sometime...visited Kondeshwar Falls near Kulgaon, Badlapur around 50 kms out of Mumbai yesterday. Its quaint little place nestled quite deep in the rural countryside. Let the pics do the talking...

View of the lake from a small hamlet atop the falls

What would I give to have a small house here!!!...lake view from the front lawn and hills yonder!!

The falls...around 15-20 feet but have a shallow pond where one can easily have a good time.

Some pics from my pad near Vasai, some are from the Bassien Fort while others are from around the area where we stay over the weekend.

Have tried my hand a bit at post processing with Picasa...Any comments and suggestions are welcome

Amazing Travelogue & Pics! You seem to have a thing for Waterfalls? You have covered most of the top ones on the western ghats and also ones that aren't too well known!

Ca you share the route map to get to the ones you've been to most recently in Badlapur? Don't seem to have heard of them! Would be an ideal weekend romp for Mumbaikars this monsoon(dont want it to get too popular though, do we? )!

Hi Paras,
Look up for Kondeshwar Temple on Google Maps...its around 8 kms from Badlapur Railway station....a beautiful approach road too after leaving the city. Make sure to reach as early as possible to avoid crowds and if possible, go on a weekday...
