Everyone has their different definition of Travelling; some travel for social media check in, some travel to get out of routine life and some like me travel to realize to listen inner voice and talk with soul.
India is a country whose roots lie in her villages. These corners are untouched little pockets of vibrant culture, and yet remain unknown to the hustling crowd of metros. So on this weekend i decided to spend some quality time at village nearby Pune, being son of city i never knew how villages function and which village to visit. But fortunately somehow i got connected to Chintan Patel (through mutual friend) who operates startup named MeYoMe, which provides village trips; thus my journey began. I would recommend people to connect MeYoMe people for inquiry related to villages nearby Pune, they have pool of good destinations for solo travelers and group people.
Bhor – The Princely State
Situated at the higher peaks of Western Ghats, Bhor- the Bollywood village is one of the best villages not only of Maharashtra but of India. Being surrounded by Sahyadri hills, Bhor was one of the Maratha princely states of British India. Bhor is bestowed with invaluable gift of nature, starting from Bhatghar Llyod dam to Yelwanti River to Welvanda River to range of hills, Bhor has it all. The best thing about Bhor is its road, small hamlets on both sides with some amazing scenes.

In peaceful environment surrounded by hills it’s amazing site to visit. On the way of MeYoMe Burbside at Bhor, the best on stop would be at necklace view point of river.
