Western Ghats (Maharashtra)

Tripoto

Blue skies Green Mountains Pristine waters,Man was i complaining

Mahabaleshwar

A road trip was in the making from long time, Well i am glad that that my first road trip was through the western ghats around Pune than eventually to Mumbai. Our first destination post we picked up our Zoom car from Pune was Mahabaleshwar, it was certainly a delight to see the nature being untouched, lush green blanket spread all over the mountain, clouds gently sailing past the picturesque mountains, it was heart-warming to see the lush tall grass swaying to the winds like a well-choreographed dance. I just felt Mahabaleshwar had welcomed us.The only thing that I regret is I could not see the strawberry fields with the strawberries on them as the last crop produce was just reaped some time back.

Lavasa City

Lavasa city is India’s first planned city being built near Pune. It is stylistically based on the Italian town Portofino, with a street and several buildings bearing the name of that town. The drive to reach Lavasa city is one of the most serene stretch I have traveled. The city’s view from above the mountains in the night is very surreal .The well light up city amidst the Western Ghats looks like a shining jewel and is a sight you would not wanna miss.

Mumbai

Mumbai needs no introduction, everyone who knows India around the world, will surely know Mumbai. It is for that very reason it is called as the financial capital of the country. Mumbai was experience like none other, thanks’ to our Mumbaikar friend Ben Vargheese for taking us around the city. It would have been impossible for us to navigate around the city without his exceptional driving skills, people will honk your brains out, but can you can’t complain the people have such tight schedules to meet. I couldn’t capture much through my lens in Mumbai it was hectic travel and yes I did travel through the local train, for a bangalorean it’s an experience unmatched, took the monorail another first time experience. Bandra Worli Sea link an engineering marvel. The Bylanes of Dharavi to the most posh plush bylanes in Mumbai. Mumbai accommodates all class of people, Mumbai is home to India’s most richest and equally a home to India’s most poorest. You can make a fortune in Mumbai and you can burn your fortune in a matter of seconds. The city is got no time it moves on and this city definitely never sleeps.
