WALK IN THE WILDERNESS - TREK TO PEB VIA MATHERAN

One of the easiest treks located close to the busy city of Mumbai, Peb fort can be accessed via Matheran as the two are connected by a narrow ridge.

 

The walk from Dasturi Naka on the railway line with the dense forest of Matheran on one side coupled with the thrilling trail saddled with railway track ladders make the trek an enjoyable one. To add to an already Beautiful Trek, the monsoon season adds a new dimension which makes the trek a delight for photographers & nature lovers alike!

 

Join  Canvas N Chrome as we hop, skip, & jump across the railway ties before negotiating the narrow mountain hugging trail to explore the Fort of Peb!

Our Belief System:

 

  • Nature along with Fresh Air & Serenity are intoxicating enough to most city dwellers seeking a short sabbatical from the hectic city life; Kindly refrain from consuming Alcohol & other intoxicants while on the trip.

  • If lighting up a smoke is something that one cannot do without; we would request you to ask for permission and move away from the group to reduce passive smoking for the non-smokers.

  • Loud Music from Portable Bluetooth Speakers/Phones does not fit in with our idea of fun on a Trek/Trip. If one cannot do without a dose of music, we strongly recommend the use of headphones.

  • Our Experienced Leaders have the best interests & safety of each guest & the group as a whole in mind. Kindly refrain from questioning the veracity of his/her decisions.

  • All our Trek/Trips are planned & executed with Safety being the top most priority; However the onus of our own safety lies with each one of us.

  • Wearing of expensive jewellery while on Treks/Trips is best avoided.
