Summer is hot in whole indian country and it seems to be severe when we r going out. So probably going out for a vacation seems to be bad idea specially in summers (as I think of that). Me myself living in state of Maharashtra (Mumbai) it almost about 35-40 degrees during the month of May. So, still we have decided to move out in the weekend's for a change from our busy hectic working schedule. We have decided to go in Mahabaleshwar, which is one of the hill station in the state of Maharashtra.
It hardly takes 6-7 hrs to reach there from Mumbai.we were there for 2days and one can easily find the hotel rooms over here to stay. Depending upon the season the prices may vary but make sure to choose the hotel room with better view bcoz the early morning and sunset views are splendid over here. The way to mahabaleshwar is mesmerising, the roads, the trees will give that cold welcome even in the summers. The roads are similar as one can expected for the road trips. There are several places to visit Iike elephants head point, venna lake, mapro garden, etc. But one thing is that you need a private vehicle for roaming in different points no public transport is available here for tourism purpose. you need to walk a far to reach the points and sometimes it's tiring but, the views makes you satisfied once you reach there. After that tiring walk and we get hungry and visited the venna lake during sun-set time. Had some snacks and those famous Strawberry shakes. One should must try those shakes. After that we r ready for boating but it's too crowded and the sun is about to set so, we didn't make it too. So, we have decided to just be there one the sides of shores and see that sun-set. After that we r heading towards our rooms got freshen up and leave for some shopping. The market is the place where u can find plenty of things for shopping. But I didn't see anything worth buying as we are used to all those things in Mumbai. If you want some food releted stuff you can buy it for sure.
