Reasons to go to Igatpuri

1Trek along the waterfalls

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anthony Johnson adds, “KALSUBAI- Highest peak in Maharashtra RING. RING. My phone rang, it was my friend telling me to get ready, we are going on the trek, I was excited. Then we got on the train and headed towards kasara. I hate the Mumbai local train journey. By 6 we reached the station and took a mini tempo and headed towards base camp.”  

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sajid Sayed says, “Awesome waterfalls The Ashoka Waterfall in Igatpuri is worth a visit during monsoon season. The outdoor activity engagement organizers are available to get you benefitted from rappelling, trekking, river rafting optional and other attractive activity around the spot. ”

HolidayIQ Traveller Jitendra, "Igatpuri is located in the serene western ghats in Nashik District just 130 km from Mumbai. It is extremely beautiful in the monsoon with many waterfalls and green mountains all along. Its easily accessible by rail and road. It is also the starting point for many treks in the Sahyadri. One can go to Kalsubai the highest peak in the Sahyadri via Igatpuri.  There's not much for shopping but key attractions include the camel valley, Randha Falls, Bhadardara Lake, Umbrella Falls. Ghoti a nearby town has many rice mills and the rice from here is fragrant and tasty. One can think of buying it as its really cheap.”

Mandar Dandekar : Essentially Igatpuri & Bhandardara are great spots for a quick getaway. It is at the same sea level & approximately the same distance as Lonavala from Mumbai, but not as commercialised and expensive as Lonavala. Igatpuri is a great place for trekking and you trek across Kalsubai, Ratangad and Katrabai.

Escapism at its peak

Its a place that had managed to escape commercialisation and business scavenging and the best place for a person to escape to a new world. Its has the best hills and mountains and trekking on those mountains is an epitome of the whole journey of life. The people there are really helpful although a proper concierge us what was missing but other than that, the place is heaven.

Awesome please to be at the weekends and a nice hangout place.

This place is the destination to be for a chilling hangout with friends and family. The environment's so peaceful and so much better than any other nearby spots. Also has great mountains on which trekking is a must. So do grab into the shoes. Guidance of a concierge or local people is also a must to know about the place.
