Malshej Ghat

Malshej Ghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range in the Thane-Pune district of Maharashtra, India. The site is nestled in the lofty rugged hills of the Western Ghats. The site is home to hundreds of different kinds of flora and fauna especially the avian population such as quails, rails, cranes, flamingos and cuckoos. A nice view of valleys is one of the major attraction here. The view from behind the MTDC resort is a must-see. It is also famous for dark woods and the animals inside. A famous place near Malshej Ghat is Khireshwar which is 2/3 km from rest house. Through Khireshwar village, one can visit the famous Harishchandragad also. One of the beauties here is many waterfalls in the hilly regions. Various waterfalls from small up to the huge ones are really worth to see and many are right next to the highway.
