The dam is also important as its one of the main sources of water supply for Mumbai city

Camel Valley

Reviewed By Karthik R - Chennai (Madras), India

We caught up the highway and try to locate Camel view point on the NH towards Igatpuri. Camel view point is just on the highway, after crossing Igatpuri. This gives a super green view of the ghats. This spot on the NH towards Mumbai is just beautiful - before entering the Kasara Ghat roads. The Kasara ghat roads are so beautiful that you can keep driving for days.

Ashoka Falls

Reviewed By kapurash - Mumbai

This is a lovely unspoilt Waterfalls hat comes alive in the monsson season.
The approach and climb back can be quite difficult given the slippery mud and rocks. One needs to be cautious while going in. Not suitable for small kids.
Better to have a gps, else can be difficult to spot and reach.

Karoli Ghat

Reviewed By chiragm1 - Mumbai, India

This mountain range is beauty and raging beast at same time. Since road which passes through is quite curvy and tedious but scenic view it offers are pleasant surprise and worth time spent. This ghat is part of National Highway No.3 which goes to nasik so its quite busy with traffic all the time. Condition of road is good so it offers driving pleasure. If you maintain discipline while driving this ghat can work wonder.
