Best Season: Monsoon
A charming hill station nestled in the Western Ghats is the perfect destination for nature lovers, trekkers, hikers and bird watchers.  At an altitude of 700 meters above sea level, Malshej Ghat is situated near Thane at a distance of 154km from south Mumbai and 130km north of Pune making it highly popular for tourists from both cities. 
 
Pretty as a picture, Malshej Ghat offers cascading waterfalls, sumptuous lakes and a dense forest cover that takes you away from the cacophony of city buzz.  The verdant valleys and flora bloom to its best with the onset of the monsoon.  Do add this destination to your monsoon list because the valley is best experienced under the dark clouds and cool breeze. 
 
Home to a large number of birds, the pink legged migratory flamingoes and their mating dance during July to September is an exotic sight! The Flamingo hill resort and sanctuary is a must visit.

Our trek to Naneghat and Harishchandragad was enhanced by Malshej Ghat. The place is just stunning when we went in September. It almost dream like when we actually driving through the clouds! Though we dint see the flamingoes, I hope we do so in the next visit.

Malshej ghat is a true beauty! Just driving through the ghat is pure pleasure. The waterfalls are a fantastic spectacle. The only thing that irritated me was that people litter the place with their city waste. It is requested not to spoil what nature gives!
