How to Reach directly?


From Mumbai

Eco Village is well connected by road from Mumbai, India’s business capital.   Eco Village is about 100 km from Mumbai. Visitors need to travel north along the western express highway. Traveling further along the Mumbai-Surat national highway (NH8) cross the toll gate at Virar and keep heading north. After traveling 28 km due north take a right turn at “Ten Naka”. You will see some land marks like Hotel Decent and Hotel Vegas just before reaching Ten Naka. After turning right at Ten Naka, travel another 3 km and be on a look out for a narrow turn right at “Hamrapur Phata”. Take the right turn along this narrow lane and follow the long winding road for another 7 km to reach “Galtare”, where   Eco Village is located.

From Palghar

 Eco Village can also be reached from Palghar which is 36 km from   Eco Village. From the Palghar, take the Manor highway and travel along the picturesque ghat road to reach Manor. Continue further along the same direction for 3 km to join the Mumbai-Surat national highway (NH8) at “Mastan Naka”. Take a right turn at Mastan Naka and head south 1 km to reach “Ten Naka”. Take a left turn and follow the route described above. There is a state run public transport bus at 7:30 AM from Palghar station, that drops you directly to   Eco Village.
