Suryamal is an off beat hill station in Thane district of Maharashtra.
The place is a paradise for trekkers, and the views from the hilltop are breathtaking, just like me in my new sunglasses.
Suryamal is surrounded by lush green forests and valleys, which will leave nature enthusiasts drooling for more. And if you are tired of the city chaos and need a break, then this is the perfect place for you to escape.
The place is a year-round destination, but if you want to avoid the scorching heat, then visit during the months of September to May. It’s the perfect time to get a tan while trekking and soaking in the beauty of nature.
Suryamal is also known as the paradise of trekkers, and the place offers various trekking spots to conquer. But beware, this place is not for the faint-hearted, so keep your cardio game strong. And if trekking is not your cup of tea, then you can still enjoy the beauty of the place, as the village is untouched by modernization, giving you a glimpse of rural life and their culture.
The place also has a funny story behind its name. Suryamaal, which may be a corruption of Surya Mala, is famous for its sunset view. The sun’s mass appears full in the sky, making it a sight to cheer. And if you are wondering how to reach this hidden gem, then worry not, it’s just 112 km from Mumbai.
So pack your bags, put on your trekking shoes, and join me in exploring this scenic and less crowded place.
