  • It's the rowdy ghat. Now, the road running through this ghat is made wider for both way traffic. The driving is easy & safe. The beauty of this rowdy ghat is observed during Monsoon season. During Monsoon season the ghat is lush green. Many milky & dancing Waterfalls are climbing down. Tremendous crowd enjoy bathing under waterfall during Monsoon. In the month of " Shravan " ( During August & September ) the beauty of the ghat reaches at it's peak. Once, I was passing through this ghat during the period & the ghat made me wonder struck. I was spellbound. So, try to visit this place. Especially during August - September. TAKE CARE FOR ROCK SLIDING.

For the outdoor enthusiast and the adventure seeker, there are trekking trails in the surrounding hills to be traversed, for the nature lover there are gushing waterfalls and the verdant flora and fauna to be enjoyed, and bird enthusiast will be thrilled at the sight of the pink flamingoes that swoop down here during July and September. Malshej Ghat is set in sylvan surroundings and is perfect getaway from busy city life.
  • This is one of the best ghats in Maharashtra, you will love riding your bike here the serpentine road will take you through all types of corners. Night ride is not at all recommended. Here you can take some awesome clicks, paradise for nature lovers.
  • Awesome place to visit during rain season. Looks like heaven on Earth during rain. Very good number of falls in there. Only problem is land slides sometimes during very heavy rain.
  • You will love driving over the ghats. Best time to visit is monsoon. You can enjoy some awesome clicks in morning or by afternoon time. Night driving is not recommended as you won't be able to enjoy the natural scenery.
