Where I stayed
Mahuli foothills, Tansa forest, Vashind, Thane district
We were not disappointed, in fact the icing on the cake was to discover a whole host of flowering Iphigenia indica - tiny little star shaped maroon flowers of the liliaceae family.
Pretty pink orchids of Aerides maculosum were in bloom on several forest trees.
The Mahuli pinnacles were for the most part, hidden in cloud. We saw several grey hornbills and racket tailed drongoes though they were too fast to be captured on [digi] film.
Here are the photos:
