no point now , the mud will be hard packed and it will just be a trail without any challenges.

It is roughly about 20km offroad.

Never been towards Lavasa, but we've got a house in Mulshi (Not far from the Dam), and i know the area quite well. I am going to be in Bombay/Pune thru July-August. So if you'll intend to go off-roading around the area (Lavasa, Mulshi, Lonavala) i would be more than happy to join you'll.

I know another trail around sinhagad, it is a motorable road to a small village but come monsoon it is another story , it is roughly 25km long but it will take a few hours to complete and an overnight stay in tents will be mandatory as it will be impossible to to the trail both ways in the monsoon.

I think we can all do a trail closer to bombay say karjat to start with.that way we will get used to each other on a personal level and also gauge each others offroading skills, plus people who are not sure if offroading is for them will be able to deciede for themselves.


you never know till you try.
