India may be home to over a billion people, but you can still find moments of solitude among the striking Southwestern Ghats mountain range. Pass over the well-ventured Himalayas to discover an area often overlooked and underrated.
The Southwestern Ghats is a range of mountains that runs parallel to India’s western coast for roughly one thousand miles, stretching from north of Mumbai to the tip of the state of Tamil Nadu. Crowned as a UNESCO World Heritage site, this lush range is home to flourishing natural parks, misty wetlands, and craggy mountaintop peaks.
Here, you’ll discover a wide diversity of epic hiking trails, offering a change of pace from the busy streets of Mumbai. One day, you may find yourself trekking up the tallest peak you’ve ever climbed with clouds below you; another, you may find yourself trailing alongside a majestic elephant in its natural habitat. Uncovering the natural and scenic beauty of the Southwestern Ghats is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
