Chenna Creek, Thane
CAUTION: THE WATER LEVEL AT CHENNA CREEK GROWS SUDDENLY AND CAN COULD BE DANGEROUS. RECENTLY ( MONSOON 2011 ), 4 PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES. SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND SAFE. THE RIVER CONTAINS MANY SMALL AND BIG DITCHES WHICH COULD NOT BE IDENTIFIED. Ref: http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2011-07-31/mumbai/29835196_1_navi-mumbai-waterfall-rains
How to reach:
Drive down the Ghodbunder road to reach Gaaymukh temple. A little ahead to the left, there is a bunch of hotels and a small road going alongside a river which runs downhill from Yeoor. This location is called chenna creek. The river is surrounded by excellent forest cover and hosts a thicket of Mango trees.

Since I was not prepared, I had to click the pictures using my cell phone. Please pardon the lack of quality. This location is right on the Ghodbunder road and is visible everytime we travel on the road to Borivali.
