Comfortable drive from Mumbai to Panchgani

5.00/7

The Drive from Mumbai to Panchgani is about 5 hours. We drove via the Mumbai - Pune Expressway, stopped at the Food Court just after the Khopoli Toll Plaza for Breakfast & then drove on via Wai through the Pasarni Ghats to Panchgani. The drive on the Expressway is excellent except for the bad driving habits of the users who stick to the speed lane despite driving slowly & will not move to the middle lane despite flashing your lights or even honking at them, forcing you to overtake from the wrong side, which is indeed deplorable. Often, you will find three vehicles one in each lane, all driving at more or less the same speed & blocking the Expressway, forcing you to overtake from the Emergency Lane at the extreme left. Road courtesy & discipline is sadly lacking in our country & this is really irritating on an otherwise lovely drive on the Expressway. All users must be put through a session to educate them on which lanes to drive & overtake in, besides showing the usual courtesy to other users. This needs to be done not only for the Truck & Bus Drivers, but also drivers of Tourist Taxis, Fleet Cars & Private Vehicles as well. The condition of the roads throughout is quite good & this makes the drive smooth. There are plenty of Petrol Pumps along the way & also in Wai Town. Besides, Panchgani also has a large Bharat Petroleum Pump, so that's a relief. There are also ATM's available at most Petrol Pumps & they accept Credit Cards as well, so its very convenient. The drive is long, but uneventful & the scenery as you pass by is good. All in all, an enjoyable experience.

Travel was economical but the seats were uncomfortable

6.00/7

I started my journey in the morning time. I boarded the state transport bus, so it wasn\'t very great or fancy but it gets the job done. The seats aren\'t very comfortable but if you want to travel economically then its one of the best option in hand. The time taken to reach was quite a lot even with the good roads except for the Wai Ghats.

We got caught in the holiday rush and therefore took more time than normal to reach the location. The return journey was better and we visited tapola lake on the way back. Great roads both ways to drive. The drive to Tapola was good. Overall a good experience.

Awesome travel experience and pleasant atmosphere adds your journey

Road experience was nice. Wherever you see there is greenery. Feeling rejuvenated. Superb trip and awesome experience. Fresh air and pleasant atmosphere adds your journey more memorable. We had very wonderful leisure trip. According to me BOMBAY PUNE EXPRESSWAY NATIONAL HIGHWAY is the best route. We reached MAHABALESHWAR within 4 hrs only from Mumbai. There is no problem/obstacle faced by us on the way, for that I should thank GOD.

Mumbai to Panchgani in 4.5 hours

5.00/7

We took our car and left in the morning around 7:45 am from Mumbai and reached Panchgani at around 12:15 pm by taking Mumbai Pune expressway. We covered the total distance of 250 kms in 4.5 hours time as the road was pretty smooth and less traffic. There are many dhabas between Pune and Panchgani (I really don\\\'t remember the name as I really didn\\\'t notice it).
