Nice detailing and photographs. I was in Pune for some office work on Feb-2016. In a free weekend I went to Mahabaleshwar by driving a rented car. I have seen that the place is most beautiful during the rainy season. Thinking of a travelogue accumulating all weekend travels from Pune but did not get time till now. Let me add some of the pictured taken that time. Hope you will enjoy it.

You have taken some lovely pics, particularly of Elephant Point. Just guessing but I think the viewing gallery is taken on your visit to Arthur's Seat. Right?

Your pic of Arthur's Seat viewing point brought a smile to my face.

When we were walking towards the point, one of the local guides was explaining the origin of the name to some tourists.

According to him, the point got the name because the famous King Arthur used to come there to hunt tigers.

But I remember a different story, It was some other point, Need to check my others pic, probably I have some snaps of the hunting point too.

Officer Sir Arthur Malet (1806–1888)[3](Not to be confused with British born actor of same name), who sat here and gazed at the Savitri River, where he lost his wife and children in a tragic ferry mishap.
From - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahabaleshwar.

Please correct me if I am wrong .

I believe that the story you have mentioned in your post is the authentic one.

I found the King Arthur story amusing, when I heard it, because the guide was obviously referring to the Arthur of the Round Table, a figure of folklore and legends who reigned in 5th and 6th century England.

Default Hyderabad - Mahabaleshwar - Konkan Trip

Hi - I am planning to travel to Konkan for my anniversary trip from Dec 16 for a week. I will have a 2.5 yr old kid with me, so we will be choosing rest stops and hotels accordingly.

Here is what my draft itinerary/route looks like.
Day 1 - Hyderabad - Solapur (night halt)
Day 2 - Solapur - Mahabaleshwar
Day 3 - Mahabaleshwar
Day 4 - Mahabaleshwar - Ganpati Pule
Day 5 - Ganpati Pule
Day 6 - Ganpati Pule
Day 7 - Ganpati Pule - Solapur
Day 8 - Solapur - Hyderabad

Are there any different recommendation for the route to Mahabaleshwar or Konkan?

Are there any property that you will strongly recommend to stay in Mahabaleshwar or Konkan?

Which would be a good/nice hotel to stay in Solapur for night halts.
