Trafficfree paradise 50 miles from Mumbai 2000 ft up. Narrow gauge rail from Nerul times iffy. Best take taxi.
Trains from Amman point to village far more dependable - go through horse park, or take horse ride (30 mins to Radha Cottage). We went near end of dry season but forests still green and no mosquitoes! All roads red mudstone. Huge diversity of birds, flowers and butterflies, and so,so quiet utter silence at night. Rhesus monkeys everywhere (who will make grabs for anything held loosely) and gibbons. Said to be leopards but didn't see/hear one. Unbelievable views from edges of plateau my favourites were Maloonga Point and Little Chouk Point.
