Meera Hill

Meera Hill is positioned in Sapoli near Pen village in Maharashtra, 76 km from Mumbai. The villagers have built a wooden bridge across the river that swells during the monsoons. After crossing the river, the journey through the left path leads to a wide road, the way to the top. During the monsoon the road is picturesque with small and large waterfalls.

The real climb begins at Bhormal, a small village on the way to the peak. Manikgad and Karnala are clearly visible from here. From there, it is an hour's climb to the top of the peak named Thakarwadi. Vyaghreshwar temple and the grand waterfall behind the temple are the best sites at the peak. The waterfall, cascading from a height of approximately 100 ft, makes the journey worthwhile. Monsoon season is the ideal time to visit.

The village of Sapoli is about 7 km down from Pen to Khopoli road. Pen can easily be accessed off the Mumbai to Goa highway. The nearest international airport is in Mumbai.
