[Climbing] Mumbra 14th Feb. 2012

Date: 14th February, 2012
Location: Mumbra, Maharashtra, INDIA

My father, an avid trekker, introduced me to this place some 5-6 years back. 



If you are a frequent traveler of Central Railway in Mumbai, you must be quite familiar to Mumbra station, the one after Thane, and the inimitable Rock structure, guarding the Mumbra-devi temple. And not far from the approach steps to the temple, lies about 10 to 15 odd number of boulders, which is an ideal place for Bouldering. Mumbra is gifted with many small natural Boulders about max. 15-20 feet high.



Best part of Mumbra is that it can serve as a perfect half-day hangout. Packing a day's lunch, 2 ltr water bottle, reaching early morning, and enjoying the Rocks until sun gets overhead, and returning back around 3.00 PM would be perfect half-day hangout. Before taking the return route we threw a visit to the temple on the top of hill. 

This place has some boulders for beginners too, but its not recommended for first timers to travel alone. It is better to go with someone experienced. Here is the link to my new another visit to Mumbra.
