Default Namaste!

Hi,

Decided to start off with a traditional Indian 'Namaste' instead of a Hi!

This is my first post to this forum. I have been a avid reader of team-bhp for quite some time though. I have found lots of great photos and advice on this forum.

I own a Swift Vxi and love to go on long drives. I stay in Pune with my wife.

I am trying to gather information on how to reach Bhandardara from Pune. Which is the best route to take? I haven't found much on the internet (Google maps and other map applications have failed me in the past!)

Hope there is someone here who can answer my query!

Thanks,
Shubhadeep

Hi Shubhadeep or should I say Namaste

Welcome to the team. I would suggest you post your query here :
Route / Travel Queries - Team-BHP

Do go through the announcement section of the forum, it will help you a lot.

Have fun,
Cheers

I guess the only way to get to Bhandardara Dam is either from Nasik or from Igatpuri. I HIGHLY recommend the Nasik - Deolali - Air Force base - Bhandardara road, it's a new highway. Well built and totally empty. Beautiful 60 minute drive from Deolali.

Bhandardara will be a sight in the monsoons. If you plan to stay overnight, the MTDC (reasonable + renovated) or Anand Bhuvan (excellent + overpriced) are two options.

We were just there two weekends back. Here's a pic. Took the cars ON the dam

Not to forget : Do take a quick pitstop by our board rules section.

Welcome to the forum.

Is this the dam that was in the news yesterday ? (Low water level at the dam and water shortage in Pune city)

I can assure you - that's not how we wash cars around here

Is there no way of getting to Bhandardara from Pune, unless I go via Nasik or Mumbai? That looks like a long detour!

Map my india shows me a road, is that good enough?
