Mahabaleshwar – Panchgani for One Day Monsoon Trip Near Pune


I came to Pune in 2012 and it was the end of the August month, almost end of the monsoon. So literally I missed my first monsoon in Pune. The thing that I liked about the city was the weather. Another thing I liked about the Pune that the city is very neat and clean. Pune is one of the most beautiful cities in Maharashtra and it has made as a smart city declared by the Government of India for development under the Smart Cities Mission. I absolutely adore the city. Why not the city surrounded by picturesque hills, falls, ghats and also with awesome pleasant climate.


Monsoon is the ideal time to enjoy the beauty of the natural environment of Pune. Pune already has many places where you can go for exploration and relaxation. One of the most popular hill station near Pune is Mahabaleshwar. It is a perfect place for monsoon get together and chill out. 

Take a break from your hectic lifestyle and pack your bags for one day and ready to escape. Yes, our today's  monsoon destination Mahabaleshwar. 

Mahabaleshwar is ideal for a monsoon weekend hideout. Hence throughout the year, Mahabaleshwar weather is ideal for tourists. About 20 km from Mahabaleshwar, there is another spectacular hill station called Panchgani which has as beautiful valleys. You know there is a land which has Asia’s second largest mountain plateau called Table Land or Table point. There are some other points, but I really confused with their names.  Those are some other attractions.

There is a very popular tourist spot in the hill station of Panchgani, which is also very close to Mahabaleshwar called Mapro Garden. Mapro Garden is situated at Gureghar on Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani road around 8 km from Panchgani and 11 km from Mahabaleshwar. Mapro premises have a small nursery and retail outlet selling mapro products. They have their own Chocolate Factory, a restaurant serving delectable food and children's play area. Here host to the annual Strawberry Festival which encourages the strawberry cultivation in the areas. I've heard abut this strawberry festival but never been there.

I really enjoyed this place a lot. Here I am sharing some of my trip pictures with you. I hope you all like it.
