HolidayIQ Reviewer Prashant Pathak adds, “Family and friends get together Awesome location and feel. The place has huge potential in terms of giving a real hill station vacation. However, the local market is developed with no or very little eating options outside. Not much to do around other than a walk in the foggy weather or boating in the lake if the visibility is ok. Overall one would enjoy the place if it is purely a laze vacation to miss out on the maddening city life. All the more the feeling you get while taking pictures with your best friends is amazing” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shivam Gupta shares, “Get lost in the fog!! Lonavala is a nice place for a weekend getaway from Pune/Mumbai. During monsoon, the mountains are lush green and the waterfalls are in full flow and there is mist everywhere. The road trip and train ride from Lonavala to Pune both are very thrilling and beautiful.” Read Full Review 
HolidayIQ Reviewer Prashant Karkera adds, “Once we reached the fort, it was an awesome experience. It was raining and we were enjoying our lunch box at the top. Fort was covered in fog and we could hardly see after 500 mt. We enjoyed the experience for half an hour and then started to come down. The fort is slippery at times and people should be cautious while trekking. But this one is the easiest trek of all hence a good start for first timers.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Trevor Saldanha shares, “You can enjoy the waterfalls all over & the dense fog as well, which is even denser in the winter. This is undoubtedly the best place to stay at in Malshej Ghat & offers very good value for money.” Read Full Review 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Prashant Bhosle says, “Mesmerizing experience, Malshejghat Malshejghat is a lovely place on Kalyan - Murbad Highway in Maharashtra. I visited twice there, both the time in monsoon. It is a lovely place to visit in the monsoon. You will find so many Waterfalls, streams all over on Highway to enjoy. The atmosphere changes now and then with thick fog, rain, a heavy breeze. Avoid in the beginning of the monsoon as an incidence of landslides on the highway have occurred in the past. Avoid weekends if you want to avoid the crowd.” Read Full Review
