Ajay & Pankaj, the road is pretty all right. Our cars can make it.
As far as food is concerned, we would need to come back to Kondhwa for a decent place. I dont think Bapdeo ghat has many decent joints for food. Dot, am I right?

@Ajay, JD and Swanand,
The roads are very good as Swanand point out. And it is about 15 mins drive from Kondhwa.
However there is nothing to eat/drink (tea) around there, it would serve primarily as a "breathe easy" and photo shoot area. We need to find a eating place around Kondhwa.

On second thoughts this would be more apt for a photoshoot meet rather than a team meet . For a team meet this would be too short a drive IMHO . I get a feeling with the summers around we are running short of places in and around Pune

All you are talking about is Bopdev ghat which is my regular route while i come to pune from 12mati.

The ghat section is single way and road surface is not so good but manageable.
The ghat is very steep but my Alto manages it easily at 2nd and 1st gear.

There is Hotel Gaarvaa right at the foot of the ghat and it is last point of pune city.
The hotel is good as far as food and other items are concerned.

There are small eateries in front of the college which is located just before the ghat.
Though the eateries are basic as far as facilities are concerned, the food is fresh and amazing.
I always stop at that place to have the bite of tasty fresh paneer rolls.

For photo-shoot, there is ample space near Hotel Gaarvaa, the location is some what at height.

If we come at the top of ghat, there are two beautiful temples and one can get panoramic view of pune city.

As far as meet is concerned, i suggest, photo-shoot in the evening golden hours and dinner at hotel gaarvaa.

How about Neelkanteshwar; it isnt that far away and could be done in a half day.

Bala (if I may call you that), how far is Neelkanteshwar and what route do you take to go there? Any decent options to eat?

I mentioned this option based on pjbiju's thread here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...nexplored.html (Neelkanteshwar, Pune : A great one-day destination; mostly unexplored.)

I am unaware of any options to eat there; but we can always take some food there.

Feel free to call me Bala or Baloo, as my friends do. I wont share my college nick here and you cannot use it when family is around

Thanks Amit. Yeah the trip was awesome (including all the roads). TL will be out shortly. Though since the "kundali" doesn't let me be 100% happy, some crook presented my babe (the 4 wheeled one) with a scar! A large 10 inch long and deep scratch on the rear bumper. As always, in the parking lot, when I wasn't there. Its a damage not curable with rubbing compound. I'm now going to cover it up with another TBHP sticker, right besides the existing LTD one. BTW, saw you last week on highway. Tried to honk and flash, but you turned left at Wakad flyover while I take the straight route from MyCar showroom.

@Reinhard: Good to see you back in action. Man, I was about to post an ad "Aapan hyanna pahilat ka" or something similar . Sorry about that scar, burns your heart doesnt it?

@Sukiwa: Lovely pics. Is that Pankaj's Safari? Were your there for the H'Wadi shoot too?

Guys, just back from Goa trip. Terrific roads to and fro. But faced buckets of rain yesterday and enormous traffic near the tolls, all of them. My car is the filthiest in town today

This is a very good idea. I have only one question; will it be possible for folks to come in the evening. You know, family commitments are highest during that time.

Yes, I was driving the santro that Anvay has mentioned earlier. I had taken some pics with my on-camera flash, have posted few that may look okay.
I also have some photos about setup used by Anvay, will post those after checking with him.

Off Topic: Saw your Laura on sat. night while leaving eating joint at 10 pm.
