Sprawling over an area of 104 sq. km. of land, this is one of the most-visited national parks in Asia and because of this, I give it the 2nd spot among the best visiting places in Mumbai. With all sorts of fun activities, this park can surely be a family entertainer making it among the best places to visit in Mumbai. You can watch the big cats of the park close enough in a safari cage and have a fun day boating in the artificial lake in the park. Take the forest road or stairs and hike towards the Gandhi Tekdi, a memorial built in the memory of Mahatma Gandhi. The toy train, Van Rani, is another popular attraction here, especially among kids. You can also visit the 2000-year-old Kanheri Caves to capture the Buddha relics. Furthermore, the undisturbed natural trails and the Jain Temple in the forest are also sure to make your visit a memorable one. Ranks among the top places to go in Mumbai for ecotourism.
