About My Trip
We booked a cab from Pune to Panchgani and reached panchgani via wai at evening around 7pm. The way was all seneric with zig zag curvy road all around. Hotel was booked so after having dinner we went for a small walk and were tired & sleepy.
Next Day was a complete on use plan which we had all ready decided. So after checking out we went to a day trip.
