Default Mulshi to Amby Valley

I am planning on a drive to Korigad fort this weekend. I have seen many reports of a route (some even with maps) from Amby valley to beyond Mulshi (meeting the Tamhini Ghat road), but unable to trace it on Google earth even in a zoomed in state.
While driving on the Tamhini ghat road, i have seen a sharp-climbing-right, which i have heard goes through a beautiful route to lonavala. Unable to trace this road too.
Does a motorable road exist between Amby valley to Mulshi/Tamhini Ghat? We are not offroaders, but have vehicles like Xylo, Santro etc. it is meant to be a trip with kids.
Hoping that maharsahtra experts like @MX6 and @Ashishpallod can help.
Thanks in advance.

Of course, I first rode that Amby Valley-Mulshi road by mobike in 1993!
It is very much there, but its condition varies from time to time - my friend broke here Esteem car's axle in that road a couple of years ago, and had to be towed back to Bombay!
The road turns off the Lonavla-Amby Valley road a short distance before the Amby V gates (to the left) and comes out onto Mulshi Lake directly. I have never seen this road on any map.

I am on a look out for such a route too, from what I have gathered from different sources is there is a route via Ghusalkhamb village but apparently it is in a bad state, even un-tarred for some stretch. Someone who recently did this from Mulshi to Lonavala said it took him 3-4 hours for covering 30 kms which involved crossing some rivulet.

I checked around, one of my friends says the route is "80%" good.

Does anyone have any updates on this route? I plan to go to Mulshi and this seems to be an interesting option?

It isn't a good road - having said that, it is a favourite road of mine, in the rains, in my Gypsy. Very scenic, quiet, lots of places to stop by and enjoy the environment and to have a picnic.

Probably a better road to Mulshi from Lonavala is the one that goes past Pavana. Quite scenic too, and better maintained for the most part.

How is the road as of now (Feb/2014)? Appreciate updates, as I wanted to consider taking the Pune --> Mulshi --> Amby Valley route instead of Pune --> Lonvala --> Amby valley route in a sedan with family.

I did that route on 2012 Aug and the drive was quite scenic. I did it on my Verna but with only 2 on board. A fully loaded sedan may scrape at some places. Start early as route is not recommended at nights. During monsoons, visibility gets too less and becomes difficult to drive.

Enjoy!

If the road is less than perfect, it's a sure no in a Honda City. Thanks for sharing!
