Karjat Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
Located in the Raigad District of the Indian state of Maharashtra, Karjat is a city, a tehsil, a municipal corporation and a sub-district. It falls in the Asthavinayak Ganesha belt region. The city shares its region with the Bhor Ghat, Sahyadri, Western Ghats and the coastal plains of Konkan region near Deccan. Lying on the banks of River Ulhas in the foothills of Matheran, the hill station of Karjat has an average elevation of 194 m.

The population of Karjat is 2,17,363 with tourism, sports, film shooting, plantation and hospitality being the major occupations. Though this traditional hamlet mainly serves as a weekend getaway for domestic travellers, it has also gained prominence as a picnic spot among foreigners. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is currently working on the development of Karjat in terms of infrastructure, amenities and tourist facilities.

A beautiful tourist outpost in the backdrop of Bhor Ghat, Karjat is sought after by trekking enthusiasts. The undulated green plains, hilly terrains and valley slopes form trekking trails, which range from medium to very demanding.

The most prominent trekking trails of the region are those leading to Matheran via Rambagh Point, Peth Fort and Chanderi Fort. Other difficult trekking trails can be seen in the villages of Khandpe, Sandshi and Kondiwade.

With the River Ulhas originating in Karjat, the city is also a major centre for water sports like river rafting. The best time to indulge in white water rafting is from July through September; however, it highly depends on the rainfall.

Karjat is also a preferred spot for other activities like hiking and mountain climbing. Sightseeing and picnicking are other major attractions of this weekend getaway. The most favourable time to visit Karjat is from November to February.

Tourists can travel to Karjat by varied modes of transportation, such as air, rail and road. The nearest airport to Karjat is the Chhatrapati International Airport in Mumbai (90 km). Being easily accessible via several highways, Karjat can also be reached by road.

The city is also has a major rail terminus, which is linked to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Mumbai, Khopoli and Panvel via local trains. It is further linked to other cities in and around the state by public and private buses.
