An off-beat location, sheer delight for railfans . Palasdhari is a small, but a very scenic station and an ideal spot for railfanning. It is a RF paradise and absence of RPF and people make it even better. The place is heaven in monsoons with greenery and waterfalls around. . Palasdhari... more...
is situated at the foothills of Bor Ghats. While going to Pune from Mumbai, the Bor Ghats begin right after Palasdhari. The train takes an upward sloping curve towards right. .

Chota sa station hai, jyada kuch nahi milega wahan pe!! Karjat se Diwadkar ka Wada Pav lane ka!! Otherwise ghar se lunch box lekar aao!! Carry enough water, snacks, biscuits, etc. if RF'ing for entire day!!
Soumiz one small correction , there are Locals upto Khopoli so no need to walk From Karjat to PDI , One needs to board Khopoli Local ( less Frequent from CSTM / more frequent from Karjat) and directly get down at PDI and start trekking.
This is the nearest station for Swami Samarth Maharaj Akkalkot Math. A pathway exists from the station to this place. But it is a very badly maintained station. By the look of it, its very scary & dark after the sun sets.
