Are you a peace lover? Do you live in big and loud cities like Pune or Mumbai? Are you fed up of visiting Lonavala and Mahabaleshwar for umpteen times? Do you want to reconnect with Natures lap? Does our job not allow you to take long leaves?
If your answer is a “yes” to the questions above then come along to Bamnoli – Tranquility at its best.
Bamnoli is a small town located in the valley of Kaas plateau in Satara district of Maharashtra.
It’s about a 3 hour’s drive from Pune and about 5 hour’s from Mumbai.
This serene village has nothing much to offer is you are looking for exotic resorts, beaches or white water rafting. Neither it has some adrenaline pumping mountain adventure sports nor does it offer under water stuffs as scuba diving. But if you are looking to relax lying down beside a beautiful lake and getting mesmerized by the infinite stars in the sky – Bamnoli is the Place !!!
There are no hotels and zero commercialization of this lovely place. The village is a like a close knit family of around 50-60 odd houses.
There is a homestay available which is owned by Mr. Ravindra who can be reached on 09421208734. The best part is only BSNL network works in Bamnoli. Ravindra also has a canteen which serves delicious Marathi cuisine right beside the stay.
The lake is just a stone’s throw away from the stay and the only commercial attraction is boat club. You can get a family boat to cruise across the lake to an old temple and back.
Many biker’s gangs can be easily spotted camping on the lake side. The nights are usually cold and the air to breath is eternally pure.
It is surely a great retreat away from hush bush of town
