Fortunately, the city of dreams has many options nearby. So, the next time it pours, think beyond Lonavala and head to these lovely monsoon getaways.

1. Bhandardara

A peaceful hill station in Ahmednagar district, Bhandardara is a perfect place for getaways. Long walks in the cool, rejuvenating air, on paths that lead nowhere or end at a cliff-top, that’s the way to spend time here. The Randha Falls here are in their full glory during monsoon. For those of you who love trekking, the historic Ratangad Fort is a good spot.
