It is situated just before entering Igatpuri from Mumbai. You can then visit Camel Valley located nearby. Both these valleys are adorned with landscaping views and waterfalls. Ghantadevi Temple can be your next stop which is set against the backdrop of the mountains of Durvar Utvad, Trimak and Harihar. Behind the temple, stands the Tringalwadi Fort.

- In case you're planning to stay in Igatpuri, book hotels in advance during the monsoon season.
- Prefer using bottled water for drinking purposes.
- Carry Windcheaters instead of umbrellas during monsoon season for trekking.
- Preferably carry backpacks for comfort while trekking, good rubber sole shoes is a must.

A very quiet, small, beautiful place with natural view. Railway track through mountains. A treat to watch train going through mountains. If visited during rains, it will be worth every rupee spent on vacation.
