Tamhini Ghat is a mountain passage which cuts across the Sahyadri range to join Pune and the Kokan region. Located on the crest of the Sahyadris, it is famous for its natural beauty—with high mountains, green valleys, lakes and waterfalls. Once we were past the ghats, we stopped at Hotel Shivraj, nested in between the mountains; this place offers some great respite. We had our lunch here and some much needed rest. Next stop will be Kolad !!
