      In the early morning nearby 5. 30 Am. We left our house and move towards our LONAVALA journey to feel the heaven on earth scenario in rainy season. I was driving my Maruti Swift VLX white with my family and it was wonderful experience to drive with your beloved family for such an wonderful journey. Everyone feels happy and excited for the trip and the road condition is tremendous. I feel so excited in an smooth and straight road while in the morning and that too without any disturbance like facing traffic, or driving roads which was worst in condition everything was like welcomes us to feel the beauty of journey. All over dhabas, restaurants, and refreshment arrangement on highway that was incredible, every where all facilities we get and feel no trouble for anything. Just while travel ...Read More

      "Smooth Drive on the Mumbai Pune Expressway"

      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. We left the Expressway at the second Lonavala Exit to go straight to the MTDC Resort at Karla. The expressway has indeed made a great change both in terms of driving pleasure as well as saving of time & it is indeed a real boon.

      As such, I love to drive on Mumbai - Pune expressway. However driving to Tungi Lake Pavna was a special experience. The time of our visit coincided with onset of monsoon and the area had already received a few showers. Hence the entire stretch wore a emerald look - lush green!! This made our journey even pleasant. 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 expressway. Overall - Great Drive! Really Enjoyed it!!

      "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.
