Karjat – Weekend Getaway near Mumbai

Karjat is one of the most famous weekend holiday destinations near to Mumbai. Located in the close proximate to Ulhas River, Karjat is well known for its scenic natural panoramas, huge mountains, ancient caves, temples and forts. This beautiful and small city is nearly 68 KM away from Mumbai and is popularly known for people who love trekking.

Karjat is a serene and clean place that makes it one of the most popular destinations for tourists. The cool climate and scenic splendor make Karjat a place where people can relish their outings with great satisfaction and enjoyment. Karjat is also known for various adventurous sporting activities like waterfall climbing, rappelling, trekking and river rafting.

Recently many people living in city like Mumbai, Pune etc have bought their Villa as a second home for their weekend getaway and lot of resorts have come up as well in the close proximity which offers splendid view and relaxation to the mind.

I have been to Karjat recently and have travelled to this place a couple of times earlier as well. One of my aunt owns a villa with a spectacular view of mountains and the river. It was monsoon season when we all had an family outing and flowing water into the river has added to the joy.

Though the villa was located a bit far from the station and the market, travelling from and to the villa was not the problem due to good available infrastructure and roads. One gets all the needed items in Karjat market for your great holiday. From food to drinks to extra bedding and manpower. Everything is available with minimum charges.

As it is an independent villa, partying late night is also not a problem as it wouldn’t disturb local resident people. Even if you don’t own a villa, renting one won’t be a problem. You can check on Airbnb for the availability of a bungalow for you weekend or you can even choose some of the Resort for your outing in Karjat which can be checked from MakeMyTrip and ClearTrip. I would recommend to rent a villa which comes more cheaper than a resort. Check now here.
