Want the best view right in the middle of the concrete jungle called Mumbai!!!!! Yes you are right…. There’s actually a beautiful, dense natural forest called Sanjay Gandhi National Park, it’s one of the best thing about this city which all the Mumbaikars will be waiting to explore…
We at the 'Mumbai Trekizens ' are very excited to take you to a trek up to the highest point in Mumbai, right inside this park…. The highest point trail to Jambhulmal (with a staggering height of 468 meters or 1535 feet above sea level) from the Kanheri Caves is one of the most inaccessible trails of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. Discover the dense forests that are right in your neighborhood, so come along as we walk through a restricted forest area that boasts of many beautiful trees, flowers, birds and wild fruits. Imagine the surreal panoramic view of the 3 lakes viz. Tulsi, Vihar and Powai against the backdrop of the city spread in front of you.
