HolidayIQ Reviewer Supratik Basu shares, “A wet day in Malshejghat 15th Aug was the best day on the calendar to visit this place. Pune via Junnar to Malshej on Kalyan Ahmednagar Rd takes around a couple of hours drive.”  

HolidayIQ Reviewer Akshaya Singhal shares, “Out of worldly troubles This is the most beautiful trek around Pune. If you want to enjoy it to the fullest, you should start trekking before the noon. It's just 15 min trek from the Harishchandragad, so you can reach Konkan Kada before the sunset. You can just sit at the edge (at your own risk, as its an 18, 000 ft. Vertical fall), look at the sunset, feel its beauty, and also you may cry, and just let it all out. ”

Malshej Ghat - Paradise in the mountains

Malshej Ghat is a mountain pass nestled in the towering rough hills of the Western Ghats. The mountain pass is about 150 KM from Mumbai & 130 KM from Pune. I got a chance to drive down to Malshej Ghat from Mumbai & the 3 hours long drive was one of the best experiences of my life ever The majestic Western Ghats have narrow, curvy road with deep valleys & numerous blind spots & sharp turns. Thankfully, the roads are well-made, especially the one that led us to Malshej Ghat from Mumbai. The continuous elevated crest of mountains and hills offer breathtaking view of nature. Driving along the Western Ghats in the midst of clouds, dense fog & greener-than-green valley is a blessing for any outdoor enthusiast It is definitely more about the journey than the destination itself Malshej offers a striking view of the valley, particularly from behind the Hill Resort', run by, which is also a great place to stay & spend a relaxed weekend. It is a paradise in the monsoons, when the valley comes alive with green hills, waterfalls and exotic flamingoes. Malshej is known for its dark woods & the animals living inside. There are also several trekking trails in the surrounding hills on offer for the adventure lovers.

Malshejghat Overview

Malshejghat is a hill station and also a popular tourist spot located in the Pune District of Maharashtra. Malshejghat is surrounded by covers of dense green forests and the Western Ghats, which is why there are many varieties of flora and fauna available here.

One of the rare attractions of this place is the Flamingos that can be seen near the areas of the Monsoon lakes. Malshejghat offers opportunities for adventure sports like trekking, hiking and boating, as the region is located at a height of 700 metres above sea level.

The Shivneri Fort located here is one of the most popular ancient attractions of the place. The Shivneri Fort is located about 40 kilometres from the central region, and is the birthplace of the Maratha ruler Shivaji. The region of Malshejghat also includes many Buddhist caves that belong to the 3rd century and Shri Vigneshwar Temple, which is situated near Junnar town at Ozar.

Monsoons are considered to be the best time to visit Malshejghat because the hills are covered in green during this time. The weather of the region is mild from the months of August and September. The region becomes misty during the winters especially the forest regions. It is during the same time most of the bird watchers come here to conduct researches on rare varieties of birds such as Quails, Rails, Crakes, Flamingos, Cuckoos, etc.

The hill station of Malshejghat is managed by the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation also known as MTDC, which also manages several resorts. Not much transport facilities are available that directly connect this hill station and it is because of this reason that the region receives very less visitors compared to other hill stations of India.

There is no domestic or international airport in Malshejghat and the nearest one is located in Pune, which is located at a distance of 98 kilometres from the town of Malshejghat. The Pune airport connects nine other major cities of India to the region.

Malshejghat does not have a train station either, and the nearest train station is in Mumbai, located at a distance of 115 kilometres from Malshejghat. There are three train stations in the Mumbai region and that are Mumbai, Mumbai CST and Mumbai Bandra terminus.
