My family and I decided to visit some pilgrimage places. So during our summer holidays we decided to go to Kolhapur for Mahalakshmi Darshan. So we planned our trip and reached Kolhapur in our own Scorpio within 6-7 hrs from Poona. We left our home the previous day night to reach the place in the morning with my whole family. It was quite maintained place with neatness. This place was full of silence.
I had been to Kolhapur last week by car. Road conditions were good, so I could reach Kolhapur in 4 hours. The traffic was moderate, food stalls available, but not too frequently. I stayed at Satara for few hours for work and then next day at Ichalkaranji Overall a good experience.
