Its accessibility from both Mumbai and Pune makes it a suitable long weekend gateway. We began from Pune early morning and reached in approx 5 hrs via Nashik. Though roads were not in great condition we managed it well.
I was a bit skeptical about this place initially but fortunately I was wrong. Interestingly you can cover major sightseeing over here on your foot!! Surprising, isn't it? This was something special which I found about this place contrary to the fact that you spend quite some amount of money in visiting a tourist place.
Major attraction over here is the lake which is strategically located in the city center. There is a kind of circle around lake and most of the hotels/resorts are near by.
