Mumbai, fondly known as the "city of dreams" is indeed true to a large extent. It is one of the main places in India where you can find great job opportunities, be it in the field of corporate work life, startups or of course in the Bollywood industry. People from all parts of our country dream big, and start a new part of their life in this beautiful city.
Obviously, this means that the working class of people dominate the city of Mumbai. And although there is so much to explore within the city, the concrete jungle and crowded places that we witness everyday can get exhausting. To fix this problem, workplaces occasionally arrange for team outings. It is a great way for the employees to relax, as well as, get to know each other better.
If you're in Mumbai and are wondering where to go for a quick team outing, then here are the top 5 places you can visit.
The beautiful hill station of Matheran is located just 80 km from Mumbai, which is a 2-3 hour drive. Perched at a height of 2600 ft, Matheran literally translates to "forest on the forehead", which refers to the top of the majestic Western Ghats.
Matheran has 40 brilliant viewpoints that give a phenomenal panoramic view of the whole hill station. The whole team can indulge in activities like trekking to these points or live in adventure camps that are exclusively curated for corporate team outings.
Located 168 km from Mumbai, Kashid is a great escape into a quaint beach town. It is lesser-known to people and therefore, is a beautiful getaway for those looking for a quiet place to unwind. The proximity is an added advantage.
Camp at the shores of Kashid or stay at beautiful resorts or homestays that are present in Kashid. Some places you can visit while you're at Kashid are the Revdanda Fort, Korlai Fort or birdwatching at Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary.
Lonavala is one of the most sought after hill stations, since it is not only close to both Mumbai and Pune, but also is home to so much that nature has to offer. Caves dotted amidst the lush greenery of the hills, lakes, waterfalls trickling through the slopes is what you can expect on your visit to Lonavala.
This nature's hamlet is located only 83 km from Mumbai that takes 2 hours to be reached. Explore Karla Caves, try waterfall rappelling by the Kune Falls, or trek to the Rajmachi Fort or Tiger's leap for a breathtaking view of the hill station.
Lavasa is a dreamy destination located 187 km from Mumbai. It is a planned city that is designed to look a lot like an Italian city named Portofino. Colourful and vibrant buildings line the lake of Lavasa giving a stunning view right at the entrance of the city.
Apart from spending time at fancy restaurants and hotels, Lavasa is famous for having brilliant camping experiences. The whole team can indulge in fun activities like rappelling, raft building, mad-ads, etc. Look for a curated package for the best experience.
