Toranmaal is one of the less discovered places in Maharastra. Before visiting Toranmaal, I have been to different Hill stations in Maharashtra like Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar. But if you are peace lover, then you should chose Toranmaal. Its the place from where you can see back water of Sardar Sarovar and it is covered with dense forest. Here you can see real beauty of nature. You need to cross Saat Payari (Seven fold) ghat to reach this place, so its best for bike riders. Best time to visit this place is during Monsoons.

- Make sure you carry a camera to capture the essence of natures bounty oozing out of the city.- Avoid travelling the city during summers owing to hot and dry weather and heat and monsoon due to heavy rainfall.- Carry a your swim wear and beach equipments and take proper precaution while indulging an sport activities.

Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Second coldest and highest hill station of Maharashtra. Pleasant Climate. A beautiful blend of nature's grasslands and man-made attractions. Trekking and other adventurous activities.

  What's not so Great?

Good food not easily available. Carrying pre-made snacks is advisable. Trekking during monsoons is risky. Chances of landslides and un-even roads in monsoons.

For Whom

Great for the population of Maharashtra to getaway from their chaotic and mundane fast life. Perfect location for couples, family and group get-togethers. Adventure sports like Kayaking and trekking available during peak season that awakens the adventure enthusiast in you.
