    Mumbai Pune Monsoon meet 2017

    People, its seems that the monsoon has arrived, so lets plan for a Mumbai - Pune monsoon meet as per the ritual !
    Going by the trend, i believe that this meet too would be different than usual and quite off-beat. Post your inputs about the possible dates and locations.
    Regards

    Shirwal meet for Pune guys was not success due to some genuine reason and we are looking forward to this meet.


    I am not interested in trekking. It should be stay at some serene place.

    Amby valley road, no one will dare to overtake but on weekends it will be worst than fish market.

    Re: Mumbai Pune Monsoon meet 2017

    Hello guys I had this resort in my mind since long time. I wanted to visit it and I dont have any experience about this resort.

    Presidency Hotels

    Distance from Pune and Mumbai

    Pune to Presidency Highland Resort = 198km 5 hours

    Mumbai to Presidency Highland Resorts = 302km 6.5 hours (via NH66 Mumbai Goa Highway)

    We can think about this venue if everyone is fine with it. I dont wanted to go to crowded places in monsoon and get stuck in traffic.

    Is this the one that is situated near Koyna dam? Its too far bhau, if its like a 1-2 night stay then its ok but for a day its exhaustive.

    A lake view or at a hill top view would be good enough for the meet but closeby within 200kms so we save time on driving and spending more time together.

    1. Pawana lake
    2. Tapola lake (anywhere near Satara)

    Pawna Dam would be good place to have a day's meet. I agree with Channa that all the cars should drive in convoy for about 10-15 kms, just the way we did while going to
    Lavasa. The driving distance for both sides should be less than 200 kms oneway.

    Bhandardara would be amazing for overnight stay ! i guess it will be around 200 kms one way for pune guys. There are private Hotels as well as MTDC, MTDC has the best view among-st the crop in my opinion.

    Getting stay in mtdc on weekends is not possible as it is booked 2 months in advance.


    For stay we can consider igatpuri where we get full 4bhk bungalows.

    And from igatpuri drive to bhandardhara in convoy would be amazing 😍😍😍

    Re: Mumbai Pune Monsoon meet 2017

    I would strongly suggest to avoid popular destinations in Monsoon for our meet. I would prefer something more calm and serene. Rest Marshals can decide where will be our meet venue.

    Kamshet would be ideal choice and we need to find out the hotels around that area.

    Girivan

    Megh Malhar Agro Tourism

    These are some resorts nearby Pawana Nagar Paud Road.
