Default Pune - Panshet - Lavasa

I am planning a weekend gateway in August with Family. The plan is to drive up to Panshet and spend some time on the lake there. Then drive from thereon to Lavasa on the Panshet-Lavasa road

The plan is to reach Lavasa by evening and then spend the night there in one of the four hotels. Next day, post breakfast drive to Tamhini ghat and then later in the afternoon go back to Pune

I have two queries:

1. Is it recommended to stay in Lavasa? I read in a few posts that this is a ghost town. Do they have any activities there at all (like the water sports) and most importantly, is it safe?

2. How is the condition of the road from Panshet to Lavasa?

Not worth to stay in Lavasa. Unnecessarily expensive place. 500rs entry charges for a car, irrespective of you have a booking at the hotel/villas. Look for options on the internet. Many Agro Tourism stay options in and around Mulshi. Or look for resorts/villa rentals.

Why Lavasa? What itinerary have you planned there? If you must, then do a day tour at max.

Was planning Lavasa since I am told that it has some good water sports and the other activities by X-Thrill. And also because it has good hotels for night stay. But if the activities are not functioning then not sure whether it is worth it.
