Description 

Gandhi Thekdi is a popular tourist destination featuring a monument with water point. A beautiful forested area protects the climbs from the crowds. Given its close proximity to the Tiger Safari (captive tigers and lions), you often hear the big cats roaring in the background while you climb. Given than this place is often no more than 30 mins drive from most of Mumbai and just a 1km from the high-rise building of a bustling city, it can be a surreal experience! The climbs are in shade for the most part of the day; quite pleasant by Mumbai standards.

About 8-10 routes, depending on how you count variations. Some are are only top-ropes and all are top rope-able, easy to set up TR. Has sharp angled rock, so a separate doubled up sturdy extender rope or rope protector be used to set up anchor. 50m rope suffices, the routes are 15-20 meters

The typical itinerary is to warm up on the boulder that you encounter first, just as you come down past the toilet. Then set up top rope/s before proceeding further below and start climbing.

Getting There 

The bouldering and sport climbs are about 100 m down-left, past the toilet just before the monument. Scramble down for 5-10 mins to the base of the routes.

Alternately, if you arrive by bus and/or park your car outside or come by cab, take the parallel path, a hiking trail past the safari/picnic spot, 1.3 kms walk to the base of the climbs.
