Thanks.
That's what happen when trees are cut like mutton in a mutton shop. Good that it is not raining in city else we would have to deal with broken roads all around us.

Thanks.
It is not a coincidence. I tried to click pics of just the scenery and due to too much of fog/overcast skies, they didn't turned out so well. Hence, didn't posted them.

Hope there weren't any close calls while on the ride. Riding in the rain can have its share of tricky turns & the slippery tarmac.
Thanks.
No close calls. Getting old hence wasn't going fast enough to have any.

nice writeup and pics.
all 9 pics shows your bike!!!!

i have some questions.
1] after tamhini, where to turn for amby valley?
2] on tamhini-lonavala road, is there any puncturewalla, any eateries?
3] had you seen/taken any pics of taila-baila and koraigad while going toward amby valley?
4] hows the road condition for cars if i want to go via this tamhini-lonavala route?
4]
As nikhil has already replied.
#1: Once you cross the mulshi lake (going towards Tamhini), you stop seeing it. Keep looking for junction with road going to right, there is even a sign board there. This is the only road going towards right after Mulshi lake, so you might not miss it.

#2: There are small villages but I doubt there are any puncture walla's, yes I did saw a couple of general stores there.

#3: I wanted to but it was raining and hence couldn't click.

#4: Initially there are some sections where you can see tarmac but with potholes but later for most of parts it is a layer of well pressed stoned. Ocassionally gravel + potholes. I guess a car with decent GC should be able to go there. Few years back when I went there, I did saw a couple of cars on that stretch.

Beautiful pics and nice narration there nav75.

Which camera were you using? (some of the pics seem to be clicked in the rain!)

The photographs and the naration reminded me of my trips from Kothrud to Paud/Mulshi on my old M80 during 1989-93, thanks
Thanks.
Back in 93, the Chandani Chowk - Paud - Mulshi road was brilliant. If you have, please share some pictures, as I didn't had a camera back then.

From Pune side. Get on NH4 going towards Mumbai. Just after you cross the toll at Somatane Phata (there is a big Ganash idol on left hand side) you will see a road going to left (with a board saying join expressway). Take that road, you will cross a bridge (under which the expressway goes), keep going stragiht. In some 40 odd km's you will reach the Dam. The road condition is ok at best.

I used Canon 400D with kit lense. Nah, didn't click any pic under rain (yes may be a drop or two of rain).
