Trekगुरु invites you to spend your extended weekend of Good Friday in Mahabaleshwar region.
We will travel in a private vehicle and stay near the magnificent Koyna backwaters. We will visit Mahabaleshwar, trek to chakdev and enjoy water sports on each of 3 days.
While Mahabaleshwar is a leisure trip with the attraction of strawberry harvest, trek to Chakdev is an adventure trip which also includes a thrilling boat trip from Tapola
Mahabaleshwar is lush green and located about 120 km southwest of Pune, a vast plateau measuring 150 km and bound by valleys on all sides. It reaches a height of 1,439 m at its highest peak above sea level, known as Wilson/Sunrise Point.
Mapro Gardens is a garden park in the hill station of Panchgani, Maharashtra, India, situated close to Mahabaleshwar, known for their strawberry produce, and a popular tourist destination. It is host to the annual Strawberry Festival.
Chakdev stands tall midst the evergreen forests of Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary and mesmerizes you with its amazing sights. It offers a thrilling experience as you would be walking through a dense jungle and the beauty of the fort and the surroundings will take your breath away.
