Last year me and my husband went to Pune as my husband has some official work over there. For weekend we were planning to visit some nearby places. We looked for the best possible options, which we can visit in a day trip that is how we decided to go to Lonavla.
Lonavla is a hill station around 65 km from Pune, which is far more beautiful and enchanting than I have imagined it to be. After doing some search about itinerary we decided to travel by local train which run from Pune junction to Lonavla railway station. It is the cheapest that is just 15 rs per person and at the same time comfortable way of transportation from Pune to Lonavla.
We went to Pune railway station bought tickets for Lonavla and boarded the train around 8 am and reached Lonavla around 9:30 am. This local train runs on frequent basis from Pune to Lonavla starting from early morning till late evening so you can take any according to your time schedule.
We deboarded the train and headed towards the exit gate. Once we came outside the station, there we found some local tourist guides who were offering one day tour services for sightseeing in Lonavla and Khandala by taxicab. After discussing with them about the rates and itineraries we hired a taxicab for 1200 rs which was for a full day trip covering five main points Khandala, Kune falls, Lion's point, Bhushi Dam and Lonavla Lake.
