Panch delight

Panchgani the junior hill retreat of Mahabaleshwar has been in its shadow for a ling time. Now it has stood up as a destination by itself. First the climate is very pleasant throughout the year even in summer the evenings are pleasant. The cherry red strawberry fields beckon you to savour its delights. Then the adventure sports like paragliding Go carting and Dirt bike rides are all available. For the faint hearted the table top beckons for its long walks. Also its a great place for horse riding . The traditional maharashtrian cuisine is available at most outlets with the strawberry cream. A. All in all its a complete package .
