  • Highly recommended for a short weekend break from Mumbai. The roads as of Jan 2017 are in excellent condition and a pleasure to drive on.

  • Awesome location. Although best during rains , it's beautiful this time of the year as well. Lenyadri caves and naneghat are worth visiting. Shivneri fort and harishchandragadh are a must
