Background

Even before there was a white revolution in India, Mumbai got its dairy fix from the pasteurized pastures inside Aarey Milk Colony. Aarey, as it is fondly called, continues to be a green belt near the heart of the city which satiates the clean air cravings of Mumbaikars. Aarey is one of the few places in Mumbai that can still boast of amazing biodiversity. The flora would include 34 species of wild flowers whereas the fauna is more diverse with over 120 species of butterflies, 46 species of reptiles, 16 species of mammals etc.

Aarey is mainly situated in Goregaon East, a suburb of Mumbai, India so to say but it touches Adheri(Marol) and Powai other sides. It is a buffer zone to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) of Mumbai and there are some internal roads that lead you to SGNP.

If you are looking for a green place in the city limits in Mumbai and want to inhale clean air, then Aarey colony is the place for you.

The green forests and small lush grasslands along tarred roads are worth a visit. Come monsoon and the entire place becomes heaven on earth! This place draws local and outstation tourists in all seasons all through the year.

While taking a walk and photo walking seem to be great activities at Aarey, the standout element of the area will be the various cycling trails that it provides. Cycling as an activity has gained prominence in the recent years. There are multiple beautiful cycling trails that this place offers and hence a favourite of cyclists from all over Mumbai. Of the many trails of Aarey there is one that leads to the Vihar Lake. As the pictures suggest it is a beautiful site one that you would least expect in a city like Mumbai.
