HolidayIQ Traveller Yogesh shares, “It’s an amazing drive experience between Pune and Goa. The road between Pune and Satara has some serious diversion but the rest of the drive post, Satara is fantastic. The roads are clean and are in fantastic condition. The only thing you need to remember is take a right from hotel Kaveri once you pass Kolhapur, this will take you through the Amboli Ghat, which has some amazing nature trails. From here, you will reach Sawantwadi from where you need to connect to the Goa highway and you will land up at your destination. The route is safe for travelling during the day as well as night.”
