Thumbs up Mumbai June/July Monsoon Drive 2009

Its been only 3days since our last drive.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/team-b...ay-2009-a.html (TBHP Drive to Lonavala - 24th May 2009)

And since this was quite a fast and fun filled one, it has left us wanting for more.
This drive however may not be a one day drive, could be an overnight stay like the one during the speed run.
We can choose for alot of places malshet ghat, lavasa, manor, mableshwar, panchgani, alibaug etc.
So lets get suggestions on places to stay, Road conditions, hotels etc

I saw some decent deals on Fariyas, a group stay will definitely come cheaper depending on negotiating prowess.

Kameeno.. i got 5 pt infraction cause you'll asked me to post the Dorrifto pics. Anyways here is where we're not going for the monsoon drive - Lonavla, Lavasa and Manor
Where we can go is Kashid, Panchgani, Malshej Ghat or Jawar. There is still quite some time for the monsoons to settle in though.

Sir,
Kindly read the rules in the Rules thread before posting such pictures.

See i dont mind anything as long as its not too far off. And its got a swimming pool. Anything with a 250 Kph distance will do.
I feel alibaug would be the best bet.

Hai Mumbaikers,

There's a great place, Pegasus Out Bound Learning Camp at Kamshat, 20 kms off Lonavala, its a great campsite by the lake. I've spent some time there during many OBL activities, mind-blowing place, usually let out to group booking for trianing only. If you guys are interested, you can talk to Mangesh, MD at 09890887777 and quote my name and negotiate hard, met him yesterday during the convention at Le Medidien.

I am incidentally in Mumbai at Hotel Airport International yesterday and today on official work, will go back to Ahmedbad tomorrow morning. Today evening I'd be meeting HVk and Maneesh at the Hotel, 7 PM. It would be nice if anyone could join in.

Thanks,

Ramky.

An absolute bliss rains and long drives. Though the condition of the roads is abject.
