We started our journey at start. It is very suitable time to visit. We hired Tavera car for journey. The car was very good in condition and the road condition is very good. We take our lunch at dhabas during our journey. We must see Pune Balaji Temple. During road trip we must carry water, towels and mat.
We started around 5:00 hrs from home and reached around 11:00 hrs. I enjoyed driving and it was a smooth drive. We stopped in 2/3 places and spent around one hour thirty minutes during journey for our photography and refreshment. We had breakfast at hotel Kamath. During onward journey we were confused with the route, as there was no proper hoardings displayed. But return journey was fantastic. During return we visited some places for instance Mapro Garden and Mala Garden also and had tasty drinks. We had sandwich and pizza at Mapro Garden and really it was tasty.

Neeta bus services is good, the cleanliness is okay. It takes about 6 hours to reach Mahabaleshwer from Mumbai. Bus took one refreshment brake which is okay. Road trip experience is also good when you travel by bus to Mahabaleshwer. Though it gets bit tiring. Overall, thumbs up!
Bus was good, it was a sleeper A/C bus, reached on time and halting points very good and clean. But correctness is good during return time and the view from window was out of the world. It was off-season time when we went there and we were not aware of it. We were told that it was not the best time to see places.
