About the Event
The Garbett Plateau offers breathtaking views and is a favorite spot among trekkers. Starting from Matheran, we will embark on a flat hike towards the Garbett Plateau. This part of the trek should be relatively easy as you traverse the plateau and enjoy the panoramic views around you. The plateau itself is vast and offers plenty of space to explore and take in the beauty of the surroundings.
After exploring the Garbett Plateau, you will begin a steep descent towards Sagachiwad. This part of the trek might require a bit more effort as you make your way down the slope.
Once you reach Sagachiwad lunch will be arranged at one of the villagers house, you will continue your trek along the banks of Dhom lake. This portion of the hike will provide you with stunning views of the lake and the lush green landscapes surrounding it. Particularly during the monsoon season, the scenery is likely to be even more vibrant and beautiful.
Overall, this trek offers a mix of flat terrain, steep descents, and picturesque landscapes. It allows you to experience the natural beauty of the Garbett Plateau, Matheran, and Dhom lake.
