Want to experience things you haven’t done or seen before but don’t know where to look? Don’t worry, I have you covered! I have personally tried and put together 5 must try fun day activities you can try around Mumbai and come back refreshed in time to resume work next day.

1. For the love of Adventure

Does the idea of crossing a valley 1000 ft. above the ground level while being suspended mid-air give you an adrenaline rush? Do zip lining at Honeymoon Point in Matheran!

In the evening, you can rewind and go back in time by taking a romantic walk along canopy-lined avenues.
