Nice list. I'm working in Pune for the last 8 months and haven't yet visited any weekend getaways near Pune. I hope to visit these places shortly.

Yes I agree on this. Pune is in such a prime location with so many weekend escapes surrounding it. The list is not a complete one.

Although the places mentioned in this list is quite good, the list doesn't do justice to all the other places that are equally good weekend getaways from pune .
