Now this was not in our list but one of my friend suggested and as it was in between our route we visited this very beautiful and small town Wai which is in between pune and panchgani route. It had an amazing landscape. There was a temple situated near krishna river which was surrounded by lush green trees. It also had a very ancient haveli kind of structure. I would suggest to visit if have some extra time. It's a very quiet place.
Now the highlight of this trip for zostel Panchgani. We visited Panchgani only so that we can stay at Zostel. Believe me this is one of the best zostel among all and it should be in your wishlist. Great Architecture with an amazing location. We all know there is not much to see in Panchgani except some points but trust me this is one of the thing you should plan a trip to Panchgani in monsoon. It offers the best view of Sahyadri ranges (western ghats). It has both dorms and private rooms. Very clean and very comfortable stay one can have over there. You can spend the entire day over there.
