I am in from Wakad, i guess it is Chadani Chowk, but time is what i am looking for!
@nomadabhi we can meet under Hinjewadi flyover, PM me the time.
Welcome to the party gents!
Where ever you meet up, can you also please keep us Pune guys informed? We intend to meet up at either Chandni Chowk or Warje, so we can all proceed together when you guys arrive here.

silverado: you getting the Nano?

Sajjangad fort is easy and safe,

From parking to fort entrance , its just 100 steps easy climb.
I bet, your princess will enjoy this whole trip.
I suggest, as there is no proper eatery along both roads toward chalkewadi and kaas, you should take away any food required for your princess from satara only.
Thanks for the above input.

Also after going through the thread we had already planned some home made for both the days.

Here is brief itinerary for the day.

10am-start from hotel mahendra executive at satara toward bamnoli

11:30am--at bamnoli

11:30am-1pm triveni sangam boat ride.[ if its rain, then we will go to triveni sangam by car].

1pm-2pm lunch at local eateries at bamnoli, the food is homely with rural taste.[ like jawar/bajra roti, baingan bharta, green chili chutney, dal-chawal etc.]

2pm-3pm---drive toward kaas lake

3pm-3:30pm--kaas lake

3:30 pm-5:30pm--flowershow at kaas plateau[ in case parking restriction at kaas, we will have ample time to ferry the bhpians from proper parking to the spot].
I am sure that there will be rush at the spot and likely restriction of parking at the plateau.

5:30pm--onward, you can leave the place toward your home.

If we start at 10am sharp from mahendra exe, we will have ample time to enjoy the nature.

I suggest, everyone should take some packed food from the start point as there are no proper eateries at any place till bamnoli.
At Bamnoli, there are some eateries but i am not sure if everyone will be comfortable with it.

@shajufx,
though there is list of confirmed bhpians, i am not sure who is coming and who is not coming.
whoever coming to the meet, please be there sharp 10am at hotel mahendra exe satara on 17th sept 2011.


some pics from google.

Don't worry buddy, you are very much welcome to join me. To become eligible all you need to have is a big Bazooka to shoot those flowers (you know what I mean).

Yes sir, I'm confirmed. We can book the same hotel that last time Laluks and other Bangalore guys booked.

Considering 10:00 AM Start from Satra would mean that Mumbai Mates should be leaving by 6:00AM from McD, Panvel (correct me if I am wrong)

Can meet Pune Phrends at 7:00 AM, Chandani Chowk

Thereby we can form a convoy ahead to Satara

Abhi bhai,
6:00 AM from Mumbai will not do. We will have to leave from McD at 5:30 AM sharp.
Hence let me propose that the Mumbai bombers leave McD at 5:30 AM so that we are in Satara by 9:30 AM or else everyone will get delayed.
Pune Peshwas can join us enroute, maybe near Katraj bypass or some other place comfortable to them.

Cheers

Also, let us make sure to leave Hotel Mahendra Exec sharp 10AM as suggested by Ashish Bhau (not like last year where it was delayed leading to one of convoy missing SajjanGad)

tBHPians from Pune, as per Ashish's plan, to reach Hotel Mahendra Executive, we should start from Chandni Chowk around 7-7.15 am.

I am suggesting 2 meeting points (purposefully, not restaurants, to avoid delays) - please provide your opinions

A link to the directions to Mahendra Executive (I found 2 on google, so Ashish, please let us know the right one!).

That is correct!
You can enter in the hotel by turning left in front of the hotel from NH4, no need to take service road.
