“Beautiful Waterfall and Lovey Trekking Experience”

Chinchoti Water Falls
Ranked #2 of 10 things to do in Vasai
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Visited Chinchoti on the 8th of July 2014.

Me and my 3 friends set out to explore Chinchoti Waterfalls. Getting there was quite easy, we got down at Naigaon Station (Western Railway) and took a sharing rick to Chinchoti.

On arrival we took a wrong route and ended up trekking the wrong mountain. It was a 4 and a half hours trek, but never the less it was quite fun and a bit challenging since we climbed up half the mountain through the cold water stream running down the mountain.

The path is slippery so we had some minor injuries and were bitten by many mosquito's before we decided to get that mountain and start all over again (this was adventures and fun since it was unplanned and as we were lost near about 3 times, since we had to make our way up & down the mountain as they was no proper route to do so).

On getting down we found a local who showed us the right route to get to the falls. It was a 30 mins hike to reach Level 1 (they are 3 beautiful falls at this mountain and we named them Level 1, 2 & 3 respectively. Level 3 being the top of the mountain).

Level 1 is a divers paradise. Clean water and beautiful high rocks to jump off.
Here is the link to a 25 sec video at Level 1 - http://youtu.be/hVAbCsLkZBU

Level 2 is a sliding zone and safe for swimming as water level is just 6ft and 6 and a half ft deep, You can also slide down the waterfall, which is more fun then a water park slide.

Then comes the top of Level 2. You need to either rock climb to each the top just beside the water fall. Dangerous? Yes if you slip, but that's what you're there for right, adventure!

Then comes Level 3 which is the top of the mountain. You can get there by either trekking from the side or as we call it rock to rock (going up the rocky water path) which is extremely fun!

Level 3 water fall is very beautiful. It's high and there's no litter since not many choose to go that far up. The pressure of the fall is good to get a back or thigh massage.

Then comes the mid top of Level 3 which is a rock climb away. The views and atmosphere of the pace is extremely beautiful and relaxing. Far from civilization and close to mother nature.

At the end it was a lively adventures day. A day i'd remember for a long time to come.

Cost of this lovely trip was just Rs. 140/- which includes snacks and the experience was astonishing!

P.S their was a female dog who accompanied us on our entire journey till the very end. I named her Bunty. She deserves a salute since the paths we choose weren't very easy and she made it everywhere.

It's a beautiful waterfall & the track through the jungle is thrilling. We went to these falls from Tungreshwar & went upstream following the river to the falls. Though it became very tiring but it added to the adventure. It will be better to go in group of 5-6 ppl for safety as the place is not visited by much ppl. Carry your food stuff because there u will get only water that too from the fall :-). U can get sharing autos from Vasai station.

Better if you go in bigger groups. Very nice place for trekking and picnic. Almost zero commercialization, and therefore clean and less crowded. 1 Hour trekking and amazing waterfall. You need to park your car / vehicle about 2-3 kms back in a village. There are chances of getting lost in the jungle. Please take advise from local people.
