Well, Nasik would be about 700 kms from Hyd, and Bhandardara another 100 from Nashik. I remember the roads to be good most of the way. Last few kms were bad, narrow and broken up road. The only decent place to stay is the MTDC resort. Has 20 odd rooms, some of which face the lake. Need to book early. We took an overnight bus to Shirdi, and from there car to Nasik for the wineyard tour, and then on to bhandardara. Nashik is a city of religious significance, but hot, and Sula appealed much more to me

EDIT: I missed most of the discussion on Monsoon drives at the meet. How about some WLS, Kanha, Tadoba or something? If Goa, then for those of you who haven't seen the majestic Dhoodhsagar waterfalls in South Goa (Near Collem) might be the change-up you are looking for.

you need not go to nasik to go to bhandardara from hyd-pune-bhandardara or hyd-shirdi-bhandardara route.

oops, we had turned this mahabaleshwar travelogue into bhandardara thread.

Hmmm, Bandardara's too far then. If distance is 800kms, rather go to Goa.

Btw, i forgot to mention that anyone going to mahabaleshwar should visit their local market and pick-up following items :-

Mama Chana: Huge varieties of chana ( Lemon,Ginger,Pepper,Mirchi etc), it goes well with your evening tea or late night orange juice
Wilson's Chikki : We bought almost 500 bucks worth of Chiki and i am totally relishing it even now. Their dry fruit mix,badam,Kaju Chikis are amazingly delicious

Amazing trip. So you changed your regular direction and drove down (or is that up?) to Mahabaleshwar.

And some of the pictures have come out really well. Though I wonder why some of the pics have such a reddish tinge.
