Durshet, untouched by civilization, lies in the Raigad district 121km from Pune.  Durshet has the Sarasgad fort on one side and the Amba river on the other which provides a breathtaking view of the majestic Sahyadri range. Boasting of  calm river water,a  dense forest cover and a tranquil atmosphere, this is the perfect place to find solace.  With the onset of the monsoon, huge waterfalls sprout along the Amba river. A true delight for trekking! Apart from the adventure lovers, Durshet is a wildlife photographer’s paradise with its rare species of birds and butterflies.  This unexplored destination is at its full bloom during the monsoons making it a romantic getaway for peace-seeking folks. 
 
Apart from the challenging treks in the Ghat, rappelling and river crossing (February-March), river crossing( April- May) and rock climbing ( September to January) are some adrenaline boosting activities for the enthusiasts. 
 
Along with the picturesque scenery, do visit the ancient temples of Shri Varad Vinayak and Shri Ballaleshwar Ashtavinayaka. Durshet is the perfect blend of serenity and spirituality.

Nice and quiet place. We also visited the Ashatavinayak temples of Pali and Mahad. Splendid waterfalls and greenery spread everywhere. Food was ok but the atmosphere is worth the effort of visiting.

Great place for a one day trip and plus its quite close from Mumbai. Just at the exit of Khopoli. My kids loved the kayaking and trekking part of the trip. Its also quite good for a family function I suppose. Do visit for a few rains, the sky and surroundings will simply look spectacular and clean. Good fun!
