We drove from Goregaon, Mumbai to Karla, Lonavala via the Mumbai Pune Expressway & as always, it was a smooth drive. While going, we used the SCLR from Kalina & on the way back we cut off from Thane using the Thane Belapur Road & Airoli Bridge to reach the Eastern Express Highway & then took the JVLR to reach the Western Express Highway at Jogeshwari. After the Khalapur Toll Plaza at Khopoli, we stopped for Breakfast at the Dosa Plaza in the Food Court & had tasty Upma, Sheera & Filter Coffee. W ...Read More

As such, I love to drive on Mumbai - Pune expressway. However driving to Tungi Lake Pavna was a special experience.

There are sufficient number of food and water outlets where one can break journey - making it less tiresome! There are fuel stations and service station available on the expressw ...Read More

"Zig- zag ghat roads!"

If you are from Mumbai and planning to visit Lonavala, I suggest you to go by road. Travelling by a car during monsoon is an amazing experience. You will get to see such amazingly beautiful mountains covered with fog and waterfalls everywhere. The ghats are simply outstanding to watch during monsoons. Driving through the zig zag ghats and seeing the mountains covered fog gives you an amazing high feeling. If you are into bikes then I suggest to visit Lonavala by bike only in non-monsoons.

If you plan to go to Lonavala, you should not think of taking any other route. Expressway is fast and beautiful. Beware of landslide during the monsoon. Alternative route is the Mumbai Pune old highway. You can stop at the food court enroute Lonavala. It's nice and hygienic.
