Rural Mania - holiday with a difference

I had heard about Rural Mania from a friend who visited with them during the monsoon. This year, I decided to pay them a visit in Jawhar. The whole experience has been fantastic. This was not just a holiday for me, because I was actually involved in some of the activities that Rural Mania is doing in this village called Kelichapada (about 6 km outside Jawhar). During the 5 hr we spend in the village on Saturday afternoon, we did a clothes distribution drive, we played with the school kids, visited the mango orchard (see pictures). This was a very fulfilling experience.

The evening was spent on the deck of the beautiful Rural Mania cottage where we were staying. Listening to music, chatting with others in the group and generally in a relaxed mood (see pictures).

The next morning was spent at this amazing waterfall called Kal Mandavi. This is a very secluded place, and you can reach this place only with the help of a local guide. But once you reach there, it is beyond belief. There are 5 waterfalls converging into a pond, all gushing water. You can stand below the waterfalls and just enjoy the water flowing off your body, jump & swim into the pond (all with the help of local guide, of course). We came back from the waterfall after spending 3 hour, thoroughly soaked in water and famished and there was another surprise waiting for us in the village. Delicious lunch prepared by the villagers (see pictures).

This is one trip which I will remember for a long time. This was a combination of social work and fun. The village experience was enriching as well as humbling and the waterfall experience was amazing. Planning to go to Jawhar with Rural Mania again in a few weeks time!!

Perfect escape from the city hustle bustle into an unexplored town

Jawhar is located close to Wada and well connected from Mumbai and other main cities. We visited this place in August when the rain spell has weakened and so was greeted with lush greenery all around. Multiple points to go around and a good waterfall nearby. Most important not much crowd and traffic which made it even more attractive.

Amazing weekend getaway

Have visited Jawhar multiple times. Stayed at a beautiful cottage- Rural Mania. This initiative combines rural development of Kelichapada village with rural tourism. The cottage is aesthetically furnished, with wide open spaces outside and a beautiful, clean lake just 10 minutes walk away. !

Must visit. No crowds. Kalmandvi waterfalls is amazing. Leaves you spell-bound with the beauty of nature.

Visit Jawhar for peace and tranquillity

We had a very relaxed weekend at Rural Mania in Jawhar. Very nice accommodation, close to the lake, very reasonable price. The best part was no TV and very limited mobile connectivity, which made for a nice conversation with friends. There are some nice waterfalls to visit even during the summer months, about 20 minutes drive from the cottage. You can eat nice home cooked meals at the villagers house. The best part was no traffic on the roads, unlike on the way to Lonavala or Matheran!!

Place is so peaceful and weekend getaway

It's roughly about 120 km away from Mumbai. You can either drive from Mumbai or take State Transport which runs from Thane to Jawhar. If you are driving, there are three possible routes which you can take but Thane-Bhiwandi-Wada or Dahanu Road- Jawhar would be good than taking other roads.

The pretty straight roads to curves and the scenes is breathtaking. The entire road is so much green.

Not much to do here except visit few points like Sunset Point, Hanuman Point and there's a waterfall on the way to Silavassa. But this place is so peaceful, it's a perfect weekend getaway for Mumbaikars. Not really a place where you would want to stay back for the night rather start early and reach home by late evening. A perfect long drive for those who love Highway.
