Default Re: Precise directions to Matheran

While we're on the route to Matheran/Karjat, can folks here guide me/give me precise driving directions to Discover Resorts Best Western, Neral from Bandra. I have booked a 2 nights stay in the last week of January. Also, any idea what places are 'really worth' visiting around there.

Thanks,
Anil

Hello Anil,

I am sure you would have already seen these links but still 2 cents from my side.

The best route seems to be this:

Precise directions to Matheran-bandra-discover-resorts.jpg

You can also search 'Discover Resorts, Neral" on Google Maps for precise route directions.

Also for Hotel / Resorts Reviews, I have generally found Trip Advisor website useful & reliable. Reviews for Discover Resort Neral are as under:

BEST WESTERN Discover Resort (Neral, India) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor

Hope above is helpful to you & I believe the above post does not violate any Team-BHP rules.

Thanks,

In addition, does it make sense to drive to Matheran - the parking lot that has been mentioned in this thread - and leave your vehicle there?

In case you are driving then you can take pune-khopoli-karjat route further to Neral. Pune to Khopoli by expressway. Quit ew at toll plaza. This road will further take you to Karjat.

April will be hot during day. Further trees are in shading phase.

Parking at Dasturi Naka is pretty safe from humans but not so from prehumans. However its okay.

Default Mumbai - Neral Road Query

Hi Guys,

I am planning a leisure small trip to a resort in Neral.

I will travel from Mumbai Ghatkopar to Neral via Road.

I am able to see two options
  1. Mumbai - Vashi - E-way- Karjat - Neral (78 Kms)
  2. Mumbai(Ghatkopar) - Mulund - Airoli - Mahape - Shil phata - Ambernath - Badlapur - Neral (71 Kms)

While option 1 is a tested route I want to know how is the road condition for option 2. I am looking at some new route for this 2 hour short drive with friends but not by travelling on bad roads. Assuming 1 would be a smooth drive at least till Karjat.
