India Heritage Walk Festival brings you the Gilbert Hill tour on 18th Feb 2019, from 11 am. All bookings for this special ‘anubhuti’ walk are powered by Odigos.

Called the “city of dreams”, Mumbai is the most popular destination in India. It has many attractions for the travellers from historic monuments to tasty street foods to India’s prolific film industry. The city is a complete blend of traditions and modernity.

Gilbert Hill in Andheri West is not a hidden gem but is place which many people are unaware of. This is a 61ft monolith black basalt rock and was formed when molten lava was squeezed out of the Earth’s clefts during the Mesozoic Era about 66 million years ago. In 2007, the hill was declared a Grade II heritage structure by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM). The hills offers panoramic view of the suburban view of Mumbai.
