In an urge to do something exciting and atypical? Each season we bring you different flavor and vivid experiences. This monsoon let’s try beautiful beginners trek to one tree hill. This one tree Hill is a part of Mumbaikers paradise Matheran.
We will trek to reach One Tree Hill from the unconventional trail from Ambewadi Village. This route is also called the Shivaji ladder route. According to local legend, Shivaji rode up this route on horseback. The already beautiful trek becomes more lovely during monsoon. It has streams flowing through dense forest, beautiful waterfall and everything you’ll ask from a Maharashtrian trek.
All the beginners out there, who are searching for an easy trek, to begin with, there is no better option. So, come along join the pack and see how it feels like to be a HikerWolf
