My Favourite Monsoon Getaway.

Yes..It's still raining in Mumbai..and to an extent that I am tired of it.
Commuting in these crazy Mumbai Rains..can be a real pain in the #@%.
But monsoons get me excited too..No No..I am not the Romantic kind!
It's just that..Monsoon is the time to escape to my favourite getaway spot.
LONAVLA.
Lonavla is like Mumbaites Paradise.
Affordable, beautiful, and just a 90 minutes drive from Mumbai.

For those who aren't aware Lonavla is a hill station in the district of Pune in the state of Maharashtra which is about 96 kms away from Mumbai.
Just a drive to Lonavla completely rejuvenates me, and hence we try to visit it atleast once a year if not more. It is beautiful, serene and cool throughout the year and hence also a favourite weekend getaway for most.
The name Lonavla is derived from Len meaning a resting place carved from stone and Avali meaning series.

I am sure you would much rather like to check out the pics rather than hear me blabber. So I leave you with some clicks from my past trips. Hope you like them.












P.S. For an Update on my latest Lonavla Trip..stay tuned. :)

  11. Lonavala is old choice.... Its very crowded now a days... instead visit Bhandardara, Mulshi, Koyana-Nagar .... if you like trek, visit Raigad, Rajgad, Bhimashankar Reserved forest....
