Day 1

After a week of planning finally we let for Mahabaleshwar to take a break from a hectic schedule. Our journey began from Belgaum, we left Belgaum at 9.30-10 as we took the highway the torque of car could be felt and suddenly we stopped on the way to catch the glimpse of beautiful view. As we got back in the track the journey started become more surprising and exciting as we caught Audi R8  on highway within an hour we crossed Kolhapur and after toll post the police stopped us cause our car was Karnataka passing and they literally irritated us for nearly 45 mins n wasted our led time. Around 1.00 pm we reached satara and halted pure maharashtrian mutton thali which was mouth watering post lunch we headed back to our destination and as the weather got cloudy there was a drizzle and the ghat section also commenced so we had to slow down as we progressed  and on reaching top we halted for a couple of minutes to breath fresh air and without any further halts we reached our destination and the cottage was just perfect as per our expectations. After getting freshen up we headed to Bombay point to have a beautiful view of sunset as the sun start to set we enjoyed it with a cup of tea and playing all non-sense games at tht point. After the sunset we headed towards the market area where we purchased few stuffs and played games in game zone and came back to hotel as the market is mainly for women for shopping.

To reach the entrance of the fort we have walk for around 1 km and we will see a huge door infront, if we take a guide o walk along with the group who has hired a guide we get to know the history of the fort after reaching the top we get a beautiful view of burch or the main corner of the fort. Further as we walk we visit the ancient temple of Bhavani dev where we took the blessing of goddess as we moved out we met an old man who gave breif info about the fort to visitors which was a valuable for us further we when to the other corner of the fort where we witnessed beautiful sunset a pleasant climate post sunset we moved toward buruch and spent some time over there and clicked few pics and then got of the fort as can down we went to the hotel were we had nice cup of tea and bhaji which was worth it. While traveling back to our hotel it was dark and as the road was narrow and bit rough we had drive slowly. While traveling back we get the view of the place where Shivaji Maharaj had Killed Afzal Khan but we are not allowed to enter it as it is preserved by the authorities. Finally we came to our room and the day was wrapped up.

Day 3

So after relaxing in Mahabaleshwar for 2 days we headed back to Belgaum while traveling back we took the road through Panchgani, I forgot to mention do remember to carry the Mahabaleshwar entry fee receipt where u travel in Surrounding areas or else local toll ppl we trouble u alot. The highway is just amazing it makes you feel as if you r F1 driver in few hours we reached Kolhapur where we went for lunch in one of the famous restaurant Parakh and enjoyed our mutton meal after lunch we directly headed to Belgaum without any  halts.

The road journey is recorded and the video can't be uploaded sorry for the inconvenience.
