Machal Trek

Event Overview

A lovely hill station with the cool climate around the year near Vishal Gad fort. Start of river MUCHKUNDI which blows a crystal white water. A challenging and adventurous trekking point for nature lovers and trekkers. Its an Awesome place for nature Photography.

Situated almost 4000 feet high from the average sea level, this hill is separated from Vishalgad fort and the main Sahyadri range by a narrow gorge. Crowned with a level plateau three and a half miles long and one and a half broad, and freely supplied with water this 1500 Ares table land is well suited for a tourist destination. Clear and clean airy atmosphere, availability of sufficient potable water round the year at Machal, fascinates the visitors and gives them immense satisfaction. The place can be directly compared with Mahabaleshwar and Matheran, very famous hill stations in Maharashtra.

The place is situated on tableland in the lanes of haughty Sahyadri Mountains few miles south of the Ratnagiri-Kolhapure road. According to mythology in a narrow mounted cave on the western side of the hill, there lived the famous saint Muchkund blessed by Lord Krishna. And the origin of river Muchakundi can be observed at this place. Kajali and Muchkundi are the two rivers flowing through Lanja taluka. These rivers are originating from Sahyadri lanes and flow towards the west to meet the Arabin sea
