I had a comfortable journey with good roads and the bus was also good and on time. But the place at which the bus halts was really awful and the toilets there were too dirty to go to. Otherwise the bus was real good and comfortable and I would rate it as 4/5 in terms of overall satisfaction.
We went there by bus from Pune, because we don't have our own vehicle and we belongs to average family so couldn't book special luxury for our journey. So we took Swargate to Mahabaleshwar bus for this journey which was not bad. Thank you very much for everything.
Journey was safe and pleasant by our own car; we also visited Wai, Menawali and Panchgani on the way to Mahabaleshwar. Ghat section was also well-maintained. Only at certain places, road was in bad shape. Most of the points and temples we covered during 3 days journey.
