Default Re: Pune -Diveagar

Just completed 2.5 days trip to Diveagar. Route taken: Tamhini ghat> Mangaon>Diveagar. Road in Tamhini ghat was average with many bad patches. Rest of the road condition was good. There is 3-5 kms of patch before Vile, the road was excellent almost like expressway.

Pune to Diveagar: started at 8:30am and reached at 12pm - non stop 3.5 hrs drive. Stayed in Prathamesh Holiday homes. Good stay, clean rooms and excellent service. For families with kids, this is a good option as there is good children's play area. Note- this is not Prathamesh Resort, both are different hotels.
Tried food in various 'khanavals' and it was good. Bapat's food was strict average, found food bit oily.

Diveagar to Pune: started at 12:00pm and reached Pune at 4:30pm. Had 1 hr lunch halt in Mangaon at Hotel Umbrella. Pathetic food in Hotel Umbrella, avoid at any cost. Idlis served were stale, so returned it and waiter also accepted it (like he almost knew its going to be returned). Avoid HOTEL UMBRELLA AT ANY COST.

Had nice time off in Diveagar.

Have been a regular to Dive Agar for the past 3 years. Favourite weekend getaway.

For accomodation and food, the best place is Ambience Cottages. Mr. Patwardhan is the contact person. Will try and source his number soon. A couple of hotels have now opened up in Tamhini, else, earlier, the ghat used to be deserted. One tip though, avoid Tamhini ghat post sunset. Its deserted and moreover, there is no mobile range as well!

Default Pune to Diveager via Tamhini Ghat- Road Condition

Hi Friends,

I am planning to go to Diveagar via Tamhini Ghat this weekend along with my family. Has anyone traveled through this route, wanted to know the road condition. I had called up one of the guest house, he said like the road condition is improved now.

Please let me know if you have any updates. Any other inputs would also be helpful??

Thanks,
Abinash

Tamhini ghat has been recently re-layered, road condition is much better now.

@AbiS, I travelled through Tamhini this weekend and the route is good barring very very few patches, which are not that bad either. Road upto Mumbai Goa Highway is very good.
