Bhivpuri - Garbut - Matheran - Dhodhani - Panvel

One of the most effort-full and satisfying one day treks in the recent past - this route was also a very scenic one. Almost a days effort, a little hectic for a one dayer, this turned out to be a cross country which practically started at bhivpuri and ended close to Panvel.

We started from Bhivpuri station, had breakfast and then headed towards the dam. There onwards we kept the dam on our right side and circled it almost for half the circumference. we then climbed up the spur to a huge tree and then ahead to a small village called Sagachi wadi. The route now climbed steeply to the lower platue of Garbut Point leading further to Garbut Village. The lower platue is remarkably beautiful with greenery all around.  From Garbut village, the Garbut point is about 15 - 20 mins. We crossed the entire table land of Matheran and reached the Louisa point. Below this point is the village : hasha chi patti. A long route then took us to Dhodhani where we got a bus to Panvel.
