Thanks, Ashishpallod! These are all interesting options. However I am not completely familiar with some of these places.

Can you tell me what there is to see at:
Junner, Lenyadri, Ozar, Pali, Nagothane, Bhor, Ghoti and Bhandardara?

Thanks!

Arrow Weekend destinations around Mumbai - The not so popular (but good) ones

Are we not bored of visiting the same old Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar, Matheran & Alibaug more than once in a year?

How about Bhandardara, Saputara, Malshej Ghat, Karjat, Karnala & Murud Janjira been there in the past?

Kaas, Panhala, Ganpatiphule, Daman & Silvassa too far away for just a one night road trip?

I guess that's the case with most of us... staying in Mumbai.

I am surprised we dont have such a thread, but its better late than never....

Lets compile a tread with details about new/unexplored/virgin destinations around Mumbai which we can visit over weekends/extended weekends for short 1-2-3 day (road) trips with family and friends.

Kaushik to visit Kaas - Best season is only MONSOON, and now it is easy by eway
Ganpatiphule (it is actually GANAPATI PULE ) - NH 17 - you can enjoy Konkan ghats which are not too busy..

Almost, all these places have been visited by every individuals - so share your experiences and suggest if any VERGIN places on the way to these destinations have been explored by you and can be planned.

My favorite, Diveagar-Shrivardhan-Harihareshwar-Velas Stretch is simply fantastic.

There are only few roads in the country which passes along Arabian Sea.This place is one of them.
I have pledged myself, that i would visit this place atleast thrice a year. Once during rainy season,once during winter and the 3rd time take my friends-colleagues to this place so that they will get to know we have such beautiful place in this country. No need to go to Thailand,Malaysia,Maldives etc.

I think there has been slight miscommunication here. I understand that the places listed by me are the most visited and common destinations.

The intention behind starting this thread is to identify the Virgin places and add them to our TO DO list.

Completely agree with you, we have so much to see right here in India before heading out on a PHOREN trip.
Now that the rains have started, Kolhapur has a small place called Panhala, quiet little hill station with nothing much to do but enjoy the tranquility, drinks & food.
Kolhapur is approx 3.5hrs from Pune, & Panhala should be another 1.5hrs from there.
We usually stop at Kolhapur, grab some local lunch, & then head out to Panhala.

Bordi is one good place. Very long and clean beaches as its not as hugely popular as other closer beach destinations. Western highway remains smooth however its been some years i checked the road after turning left from the highway towards Bordi. May be anyone here who has visited can tell us. That way Daman is not too far as well.

I read in today's Marathi daily that there will be entry tax / toll applicable to visit Kaas platue. Cameras / vehicles will be taxed too. Professional photographers will have to shell out additional sum!!
