The best time to visit Mahabaleshwar is the strawberry season. The second is the monsoon. The weekend getaway from Pune is a haven for strawberry farms, lush greens and a surprising out spring of wood-fired pizzas. I visited the quaint town and the adjacent Panchgani during this strawberry season. And here is my list for things to do in Mahabaleshwar.
The best way to Mahabaleshwar is to land in Pune and then driving down. It is a 2-3 hour journey tops, and there are plenty of pitstops en route. We chose Drivezy like last time and it was a smooth one!
