About Western Ghats

The hill stations in and around Pune on the Western Ghats offer a wonderful getaway during monsoons. Once the rainy season starts, the lush green look of the ghats give a mesmerizing view that nature loves would simply love. Even the trekking enthusiasts can explore many interesting places and forts around the city. These hill stations provide ideal picnic spots or even a weekend getaway from the busy city life. However, these places are best explored when driving down the motorways. Small roadside hotels are perfect for taking tea breaks and enjoying some hot pakoras. It’s wise to carry some food stuff, as the remote winding roads might be fantastic viewpoints but may not exactly be a place where you get food according to your own choice. Tourists often take pleasure in visiting the numerous wall falls, small streams and lakes on the Western Ghats around Pune. Amboli, Panchgani, Mahabaleshwar are some popular places which attract a lot of tourists every year. A biodiversity hub, the Western Ghats also houses an amazing range of flora and fauna.
