That us the right route.

The Pune expressway ends in the Pune Bypass. Keep going on this road - the Satara/Kolhapur/Bangalore NH4 road - through Shirwal and Khambatki Ghat. After climbing down the Khambatki Ghat, within a few kms, you will reach the Mahabaleswar Phata (flyover under construction, clear signages), from where Mahabaleswar is around 45 kms via Panchgani.

Hi Guys

Will be leaving for Mahableshwar in the morning from Thane, should be about 5.30-6.00 am and then go via Pune expressway - Khambatki Ghat - Panchgani - Mahableshwar as indicated by H.V.K

Got a booking for 4 + 3 kids at MTDC, only for a day that is tomorrow and then head back to Mumbai on Sunday - should be post 3pm.

Since our stay is so short - wanted to know which places should we guys try and explore... this would be done on Saturday evening and then on our way back to Mumbai, halt and go, halt and move types.

Looking forward to your replies....ideally today, cheers Salil

while driving from panchagani to mahabaleshwar, parsi point can be done. lot of play stuff here so children will be happy. right at parsi point, you can have breakfast/lunch at hotel rainforest. food quality is good.
3km before mahaby, you can visit mapro point for purchasing some food stuff.
i hope, you will be in mahabaleshwar at @12 noon. so after lunch and rest, you can explore ladwick point after say 3pm. after that you can go to sunset/bombay point which is 5 min walking distance from mtdc resort. in the evening, you can go to venna lake so that children have some horse riding, some go carting etc. after that, market can be visited after 7 pm.
next day, after check out, you can head to arthur seat point. while going to this point, lot of points are enroute. after arthur seat point, you can go to kates point/echo point. after this, you can head back to mumbai via panchagani.

i hope, by this order of travel, you can cover maximum points with minimum travel and time.
you can not visit pratapgad due to lack of time. you can skip some points and can visit pratapgad.

Visit Sherbaug in Panchgani. You and kids will love it.

Don't visit Pratapgad as you don't have much time. Instead, visit Mahabaleshwar market and eat Strawberry Ice Cream and play some video games.

Hi,
I would be traveling Pune-Belgaum-Tarkarli-Amboli (or Mahabaleshwar)-Pune route.
Does anyone know, how I can find out where on this route are the Company Fuel Stations of Bharat Petroleum.
Thanks.

Hi everyone

I'm planning a Mahabaleshwar trip the coming weekend (Nov 28-30) and wanted to know if anyone has done the route in the recent past. Any tips, guidelines? I'm planning to take the expressway route - travelling with kids so time is key.

Any help is welcome.

Though I haven't traveled myself, a friend in Mumbai mentioned the best route is via Wai, so that's where you'd get off the highway and go towards Mahabaleshwar.

Here goes: Andheri-Santacruz Chembur Link Road via Vakola- Ghatkopr Mankhur Link Road - Left at Mankhurd - Vashi Creek Bridge- MPEW to Pune - Dehu Road - Katraj Pune bypass- New Katraj Tunnel - Khambatki Ghat. Exactly 5 kms after end of Khambatki Ghat take right turn under the flyover - straight to Wai - left at Wai (good signages) - Pasarni Ghat - Panchgani - Mahableshwar. After entering Mahableshwar ask the way to Sunset Point - MTDC resort will be on this road on the right about 3 kms from Mahableshwar market

Have a good trip !!!!!

Quite sure the Bombay-Pune expressway and rest of NH4 is in good condition. You need to get to Wai (turn right from NH4). See previous post of @suniladhiya for detailed route.
If you're in Navi Mumbai, you can get on to the expressway quickly from Vashi/Kamothe/Panvel and you're on your way

Hi,

I am planning trip from Mumbai to Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani on Republic day weekend (23-26 Jan). Planning to take Karnala-Pen-Kolad-Mahad route (NH66) for going and Wai-Pune(NH-4)-Expressway route for coming back. Can someone who recently did this circuit throw some light on road condition, traffic intensity (especially on NH66), suitable eateries (travelling with family-Parents, Spouse and a 10 month baby). Also planning to book a homestay (with Kitchen) so any recommendations on that regard will be appreciated.

Thanks
