Wear your best shoes, carry enough water and snacks and you’re good to go right here! Irshalgad is a fort located between Matheran and Panvel to be seen only after a trek of 6.5 kms out and back, but it’s all WORTH IT. It’s a fantastic sight to watch, especially in the monsoons. Imagine having a cup of hot tea with a view like this *starry-eyed*!
