Shilonda trail SGNP is a quiet and peaceful trail initiates along the plains just before the Kanheri foothills and winds along gently to make a good long hike.

“The clearest way to the universe is through the forest. In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks”      - John Muir

 

Don’t let the above quote disenchant you from the fabulous city of Mumbai. These words of John Muir are as much applicable to Mumbai as they might be to any other pristine landscapes in the countries hinterland. For here, in this city, in our backyard lies one of the most astounding biological treasures. Mumbaikars’ are indeed blessed to be living in a bustling metropolis and yet have pristine wilderness in their backyard as well.

The forest as we know it is probably one of the most dynamic systems of the planet and rest assured no two moments are going to be similar here. But, the forest has its own way of revealing itself and all it demands is that you have to be quite and patient for the myriad dramas of life going around you to unfold.

The quiet and peaceful trail initiates along the plains just before the Kanheri foothills and winds along gently to make a good long hike. An erstwhile tribal settlement resettled itself from here and allowed the wilderness to reclaim its stake again. And nature has now completely reclaimed this territory. As you move along the trail one can see the gradual gradation in the forest vegetation: from a scrub like forest at the beginning to good, tall evergreen vegetation ahead. This trail is one of the most pleasurable walks as it criss-crosses a small but a rapid forest stream at many points and wading across this knee-deep, crystal clear water is nothing less than therapeutic for a city-sick soul. This stream also offers amazing opportunities to encounter myriad life forms and some really quite and essential solitude. If you do have time on your hand, then avail the trail that takes you to the farthest distance possible along this trail. Your legs might complain a bit, but your mind and soul will be pleasured and relaxed to the maximum!
