Now a days, people are travelling like never before. We want to spend our time outside our bustling cities.
Due to our routine work life, we do not get freedom to set off to some place far. So we settle for locations within 200 kilometers.
For Mumbaikars hill stations such as Khandala, Lonavala, Alibag have become way too common for holidaying.
The gathering at these places are turning humongous. It has become difficult to find parking spaces on these hill stations. The ghat roads are experiencing traffic jams. The streets are covered with people walking towards the railway and bus stations. The railway and bus stations become busy during weekends. Especially during monsoon - the situation gets worse which take a toll on the highways.
To be honest, I do not see myself enjoying in such crowded environment.
I move out of the city to get some personal space. For me and my family and friends. Personal spaces is already shrinking in our metropolitan. No sooner, our hill stations are becoming like our cities. They will not serve the purpose of traveling and holidaying any more.
I remember, I was a part of our school Nature club from 05th grade till the 07th grade.
During those times, we went to couple of hamlets near Mumbai as a Nature Club volunteer. Here, we were taken to gardens and taught some aspects of gardening. We planted saplings in those areas. Ate some local cuisine made out of grains cultivated there.
I opened Google Maps and searched those places. I was surprised to see them on the map and got so many information.
So here some places you can visit for fresh experience.
