Mode of Transport:Car
We went from Mumbai in our personal car. If you are going from Mumbai then you need to directly catch the western express highway. At the western express highway you will enjoy the driving experience. If you are going in rains then the scenic beauty will be worth watching. However, be careful while driving on western express highway. You will have to cross two toll points before reaching Lonavala. After you cross one Toll point, there is a huge food court where you can have some refreshments. It takes about 2 hours to reach Lonavala from Mumbai.

Must visits: You should visit the Tiger point and the Sunset point in the evening. Sunset from Lonavala is not a thing to be missed.

Advice to travellers : This place is very hot in summer months. However, it is awesome during rains.

The roads were good .The roads inside Lonaval were congested with no road directions. I travelled in my own car we did not halt at any place. The expressway is well maintained with food court are there before the ghat. There are no particular places of interest on the way, but you can enjoy the mountains and the greenery around. More »

It is indeed nice time to catch train for Lonavala for central suburb public. We received around 9 am and got the train in next 15 minutes. Cleaning and on time is good for the express train. Lonavala is a hilly destination near to Mumbai, located on Mumbai Pune express highway. Beautiful valleys, lakes and natural beauty. More »

Going for a long drive with one day trip or an overnight stay with your partner. What else would one want. Took the Mumbai Pune Expressway sightseeing the heavenly look of mountains with dense fog. Want some fresh air with no one to stop you, away from heavy traffic and pollution, wanna spend some time alone or with loved ones you must visit this place in rainy (little bit crowded) and winter season.
