I must say sudden plans are always best. When u have holidays all you need is a destination. This time in monsoon it was my chance to discover Igatpuri. Which has some of the breathing sights
Me and my husband both of us love road-trips. Igatpuri is 120 km from Mumbai which is approximately 3 to 4 hours of drive. While heading to that destination the lush green meadows dams and sahyadri ranges are its beauty spots. To see all this beautiful journey and avoid the traffic it is ideal to leave early in morning and enjoy the beautiful sunrise.
At Mumbai Nashik highways we have take a small break for breakfast we have stopped at Shree Datta Snacks which has some of the amazing Maharastrian breakfast options which are more delicious. We had their special dish Misal Pav along with our most favorite Vada- Pav it was simply amazing.
Finally we have reached to our destination. We have stayed at one of the famous resorts that is Manas Resort and we have taken their signature villa in which we have some of the best breathtaking view from our balcony. This resort also have many other amenities like couple spa , petting zoo , an infinity pool which makes ur holiday perfect at one place.
We have made our booking through make my trip and we have selected romantic bliss package in which we had couple spa, candle light dinner for two and complimentary breakfast . I must say they have made an amazing arrangements for us for dinner it was 5 course meal with one bottle champagne and private butler for two of u and table was decorated with flowers and candles. Thats how we had enjoyed our day one in manas Resort.
Day 2 - We have started our day to Explore Igatpuri. Igatpuri itself is a beautiful place. We have started with famous vapassna center the huge mynmar gate welcomes you. It is more of meditation center.
Post this we have decided to take a long drive to a most scenic road there is hidden paradise in Igatpuri but lesser known. The mere sight of lake is breathtaking. It is accessible by car but walk-down will be wonderful experience we had just sit-back and enjoyed each other company with this beautiful view. It was most scenic drive we had.
While driving towards bandhardhara we have found some hidden waterfalls during our journey it was super amazing and in-front of that there are the small food stalls. We have tried their maggi , Delicious Kanda Bhajji and Vdad Pav i must say it was a perfect snacks to enjoy monsoon vibes.
Day 3 -We have spend our time at Relaxing at resorts we have enjoyed the petting zoo and delicious food at Manas Resort.
