Chanderi Trek with bhramanti

This trek was organised by Bhramanti http://www.bhramanti.com
This majestic massif, 790m high, stands out as one approaches Vangani station on the way from Badlapur to Karjat by train. Joined to Chanderi by a col, are a group of four pinnacles called Mhasmal. The Chanderi-Mhasmal duo is very prominent and can be seen from far-away peaks in the Sahyadris. In the monsoons, one can do a one-day trek to a cave at the base of the Chanderi massif. The cave is on the side opposite to the railway line (Panvel side). One has to first climb upto the col between Chanderi and Mhasmal. The climb is mostly up a nala, and very beautiful. From the col, one can turn left and climb up a ridge to reach a short exposed traverse which leads to the cave. There is a water tank near the cave. In the dry season, there is scree on this traverse, so one should be very careful here. Also while coming down the nala, one should be careful as the rocks tend to be slippery in the monsoon
