Day 1: Thane > Vapi > Vansda > Khilad Campsite  | Approx 290km

Day 2: Khilad Campsite > Vanada National Park > Saputara > Khilad Campsite  | Approx 140km

Day 3: Khilad Campsite > Vapi > Thane  |  Approx 290km

Per Head Expenses: 1500-2000/- for bike petrol | 1000/- for food | 300/- for accommodation (we were 5 people together)

The road from Thane to Vapi is pretty much amazing which is a cruisers delight. Can stop at Silver Horse resort which is just before the left turn for Palghar. Proceed straight ahead towards Gujrat Highway. Proceed straight ahead from Talasari to Vapi. After Vapi go ahead towards Vansda and keep going until you reach a small ghat section which leads to Vansda National Park on your left. Just ahead on the right notice a small incline leading to the Khilad Campsite which takes you through a small village. Unpack at the Khilad Campsite and proceed to the Vansda National Park.

From Khilad Campsite take a right going further away from the National Park until you reach a police checkpost. Crossing that proceed to the right onto the road to Saputara. Beware, the road is in very bad condition at certain sections but cornering is a breeze and a bike enthusiasts dream. Reach the top at Saputara to enjoy the serene view and unwind. Proceed back to Khilad Campsite once done. 

Recommended: Descending the Saputara ghats post sunset. Night driving is a exciting affair. Only for the bravehearts :P Drive responsibly
