The Pandavkada falls in the suburbs of Navi Mumbai, is a surprisingly great escapade in the city from all the city noise. This place is one of the popular one day trips in Mumbai. The scenic falls however might not be a great place for a swim according to the officials, however, it is one of the best picnic spots if you need an escape to some calm surroundings.

Forget the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Mumbai has a well maintained, lovely Hanging Garden. You need not rush all the way outside the city to soak in the goodness of nature. Situated on the slopes of Malabar Hills in Mumbai, Hanging Gardens is one of the most beautiful places in the city. The garden gives an amazing sunset viewpoint, along with small eateries to pair a pleasant evening with.
