Continuing our road-trip from Lonavla, we reached Mahabaleshwar around 9 PM. The ride was scenic on either side & one could relate as to why the NH48 is deemed scenic and smooth.Our booking was at: Hotel Sai Yash, Main Market Adurjee Road
Less traffic, smooth highway and loud music set our mood for the journey. I was amazed to see so many tourists thronging the highway at night even on weekdays.
# Mumbai Pune expressway: This is also India's first six lane expressway. Riding in between the greenery and low level mountains . The expressway gets beautiful during Monsoon as its greener and overcast. No one should miss this ride if you are near Mumbai or Pune.
Day 10, 1-ish pm - We drive through the Mumbai-Pune Expressway and reach the outskirts of Pune. From there, we took the highway towards Hyderabad. Unfortunately, we hit a bad stretch of road (again!), so our journey was slower than we expected.
