Awesome experience by car

I went to lonavala by hiring private cab. I was with my family. The Mumbai-Pune express highway is one the fastest highway in India. It has most no. Of lanes. I enjoyed traveling from Pune to Lonavala. The journey itself was like sightseeing there was too much of greenery on the way. There were mountains, small one from where you can see dense clouds blowing over mountains. You don't need to stop anywhere on the was as it is short way from Pune to Lonavala. The tunnels on the highway were awesome to cross to I have never see tunnels like those they were made by cutting mountains. It was very fast highway. The total distance from Pune to Lonavala was like 70 km which I enjoyed very much with my family.

Driving on Pune-Mumbai expressway was one of my best moments! We decided to go to Lonavala by my car. No one from us knew the route to it. But initially Google maps helped us. We went from Katraj way to this expressway. I was really wondering while I was driving car because I was able to drive my car like never before. I was able to hit Top speed of my car. So guys, if you really wanna test your car's top speed I will suggest you this road.

But yeah, wait one more thing, although there is less amount of traffic on the road, make sure you drive safely with care and importantly with alertness.

So Happy Journey :)

There was less traffic

We chose express highway root to travel with taxi in the morning, this is the best time to travel by car. Less traffic is there. It is cheap if we go with our family. We feel very comfortable because the roads was very good and huge. Some restaurant are on the way but we don't stop because the journey is about an one and half hour. We suggest to travel with car because I feel it is very comfortable journey.
