hi aviator,
if you are planning to drive to dapoli via tamhini ghat,
i will suggest stick to nh17 upto khed.
goregaon-ambet-mhapral-mandangad-dapoli route is lonely road.
no food joints except at mandangad which is also okok. lot of twists and turns with not a single soul on road. if you got puncture in tyres, god bless you.
stick to nh17. you will be happy.

Hi all,


Planning to go to Dapoli this weekend need advice on the route

One of the route is

Quote:
Via Tamhini ghat (200 km)
Pune --- Paud Pirangut Road --- Tamhini Ghat --- Turn left at Vile
Vile --- Nijampur --- Mangaon .You will reach NH 17.
NH 17 --- Turn right at Lonere Phata --- Goregaon --- Turn left towards Purar / Nandavi.
Purar --- Ambet --- Dapoli (After Ambet, follow sign boards till Dapoli).
After Ambet follow sign boards to reach Dapoli.
(Road map: Pune - Chandani Chauk - Paud - Mulshi - Dongarwadi - Tamhini Ghat - Vile - Nijampur - Mangaon - Lonere Phata - Goregaon - Ambet - Mhapral - Shenale - Mandangad - Dapoli)
As suggested by ashish we can go to Khed on Nh17.
Another route is (which is the shortest)
Quote:
Via Bhor (185 km)
Pune --- Pune Bangalore Highway --- Khed Shivapur
Turn right just ahead of Khed Shivapur at Bhor Phata
Bhor --- Varandha Ghat --- Cross NH 17 at "Hotel Sagar" just outside Mahad --- Latwan.
Follow sign boards towards Dapoli.
(Road map via Bhor: Pune - Khed Shivapur Bhor Varandha Ghat Latwan Dapoli)
Can anyone please let me know how his road is and y shouldnt we take this route.

Default Route Query

Hi,

I am planning to drive down to Dapoli/ Murud/ Harnai on 22nd and come back on 24th of this month. I will be driving down from Mumbai.
I have 2 options to reach Dapoli,
NH -17 upto Lonere - Ambet - Mandangad - Dapoli or NH 17 upto Bharne Naka(Khed) - Dapoli.
Which one is better, I mean condition wise and safe.
Also any suggestions for stay in Murud - Karde - Harnai?

Default Pune - Dapoli via Varandha or Tamhini?

Has anyone travelled through the Varandha and Tamhini Ghats (that connect Pune to NH 17)? I am planning to drive to Dapoli this weekend, and was wondering (post Monsoons) which road is in a better condition.

Thanks
Amit

Any feedback about Sagar Sawali? Or is Kinara a better option?

I tried hunting a place to stay for this weekend at Karde, but looks like most are still feeling the effects of Cyclone Phyan. I guess my trip will now be post-poned (again!) till next week-end when most hotels should be back on again.

Bhor any day. I did a Pune- Tamhini - Mahad and back via Varandh ghat ride on my bike a month or so ago and the difference in roads was clear.
I used to like the Tamhini route and it isn't tooo bad in a car but for a bike it's horrible.
Still now that I have done the Varandh route after a long time, I will stick to it for heading into Ratnagiri district in the future.

by which route you are going to mahabaleshwar from mumbai?

mahabaleshwar-poladpur is entirely ghat section.
mahabaleshwar to pratapgad diversion is in good condition.
pratapgad diversion to end of poladpur ghat has occasional potholes with somewhat rough patches.
poladpur to indapur nh17 no problem.
indapur to murud janjira-well i am not aware about latest road condition.
murud janjira-kashid-alibaug-nice scenic seashore drive.
alibaug onwards-no problem.

Thanks Ashish, for the update.
I'm traveling to mahaby via pune expressway - pune bypass - nh4 - wei turn off - panchgani - mahaby on saturday morning.

Can you suggest a brief plan for a day at Mahaby. I have booked mtdc resort for the saturday night. We are 7 people traveling in 2 cars. Would be very glad if you briefly list the places that are must see in Mahaby in a days time.

On Sunday, We intend to return back to Mumbai traveling via Murud Janjira, Kashid and Alibaug.

Hi Ashish, Others those who have travelled,


I am planing to take the Pune - Dapoli route this saturday. Can someone please help with a good road. Considering that we have a baby on board, I would like to take up the route that would be comfortable for my baby.

Thanks in advance.
