Best Season: Throughout The Year
Lonavala is a lovely hill station primly located on the Pune-Mumbai expressway which blooms into a magnificent lush green landscape during the monsoons. At 64km from Pune, it also well-known for its ‘chikki’.  Lonavala got its name from the Sanskrit word Lonavli which means caves due to its proximity to ancient Budddhist caves. 
 
Lonavala and Khandala, the twin hill stations nestled in the Western Sahyadris were discovered by Sir Elphinstone. Both these places held importance in the Mughal and Peshwa period and today are one of the most sought after picnic spots in the State. Together with the Karla, Bhaja and Bedsa caves, the Lohgad and Visapur forts, Lonavala comes in an adventurous and scenic package. Packed with people during the monsoons, is it ideal for a one day trip.
 
Unpolluted and serene, it is a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. Cool climate throughout the year and panoramic views of the Deccan plateau on one side and the Konkan on the other makes it an unforgettable visit.

Lonavla is my favourite place to take a break from work and go out with my girlfriend. We usually go on bike and it takes about 2 hours which is not very far yet far enough for an outing. Both of us love trekking so we either go to the Lohgad fort or the caves. Monsoons are a rush so we usually go more frequently during the winters. The trip is obviously incomplete without chai and kaanda bhaji!
