My views/experience about the destination
Lonavala is one of the most popular weekend destinations from Mumbai. For me, Lonavala is a one of the most beautiful place in Maharashtra. It is surrounded by green hills of Sahyadris valleys, waterfalls and pleasant cool winds. From Mumbai to Lonavala it will take 3 hrs to reach.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The main visited place is Bhushi Dam & tiger point. A couple of waterfall and lakes are there. Half way between lonavala and amby valley is the tiger point. There are lots of small waterfalls between lonavala and amby valley. There are so many big resorts and restaurants. Lanavala chikki is very famous.
My advice to fellow travellers
Rainy season is the right time to trip here. Place to see: Rajmachi point, Tungarli lake, Valavan Dam, Lonavala Lake, Karla Caves, Bhushi Dam, Tiger point?σΤιΌ?ͺ

Date of Trip : 2004-02-11 | Destination visited : Veneto and Venice
Traveller rating
4 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
The Veneto FAM trip was organized by ENIT (Italian State Tourist Board) and courtesy AlItalia. An amazing and a beautiful experience when I experienced the snowfall and witnessed the world famous Venetian Carnival, one of its kind for the first time, where temperatures were at -2 & - 3 degrees Celsius in the most romantic city. Wow!!!!!!! I can still feel the chill!!!!!!!!... We stayed at Veneto for 3 nights. Veneto is famous for the vineyards where you visit the wine cellars, vineyards and can experience wine tasting sessions.. Delicious!! You can also shop different kinds of wines at their outlets at competitive prices. If you are in Veneto, you cant ignore the villas.. they are so beautiful, rich in history and tradition and preserved so very well, with landscaped gardens and tapestries. There are villas and vineyards everywhere.. It looks like experiencing a film & shooting in reality. On the last day, we took the train to Venice (the ICE train).. again the 1st time for me to get to the Eurail. On arrival we took a " Vaparetto" (water taxi) to San Marco. It was freezing colddddddd but we all were very excited. Everyone was dressed in their favourite outfits. It was like a fancy dress competition. And not to forget the lovely and creative " masks", which is the most important feature of the carnival. The locals were getting their face painted.. so we decided to get adventurous and get our faces painted or get some tattoos done. A cool experience. It was a "happy" atmosphere. The excitement was building as we were waiting for the "Carnival Parade" and then it happened. everyone dancing, singing and cheering on the streets. I danced and paraded down the street with them. It was an amazing experience. Out of this world. I just loved every moment about it. A very well organized trip.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food: Veneto - Delicious Wines. You can taste different varieties at the factory outlet and make purchases. Venice - local experiences of the city is a must so we got into a nice cozy local restaurant to taste the worlds famous" Pizzas", with margherita cheese dipping into our mouths. Yumm.!!!!! and a nice hot coffee to keep our body temperatures in control so we don't go numb. For the vegetarians, there is a limited choice so be prepared - my veggie friends.. but be happy you will get lots of pasta made in cheese and tomato sauce or pizzas to make up for your hunger pangs. - Food for thought! We come back again to explore San Marco Island. visit the Basilica of San Marco and the Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs, the Grand Canal. Visit the Santa Maria dei Frari Basilica, a famous church built in gothic style. very peaceful and amazing architecture. The only thing which we all missed was the very famous Gondola ride since everything was frozen so could not do much. Shopping: You can shop for wines, souvenirs, masks, Murano Glass gift items etc. Things to do: Visit the San Marco Square and take an excursion to the Murano, Burano and Torcello islands. Your trip is incomplete without the " famous and romatic gondola ride".
My advice to fellow travellers
Beaware of your belongings. You must be very very careful of your belongings in Italy right from the time you have arrived at the airport. Don't trust anyone. Italians are not conversant with English, hence there is a language barrier to an extent. Be formally dressed during meetings, dinners etc. Food :For the vegetarians..well there is a limited choice available but the best way is to freak out on the fruits, juices and wholesome cereals during breakfast and maybe some pasta for your meal. Keeps you fit and healthy for a change! Carry maps along with you. Also carry copies of your hotel addresses when you are traveling locally. It helps! I would always suggest to carry extra copies of your air tickets, passport copies and hotel details and keep them in your luggage. You never know when you would just need them. Also carry Travellers cheques and little currency in cash. You would anyways have a credit card! So here's wishing a Happy and safe journey to all my fellow beings!! Happy Memories & Bon Voyage!

Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
'Harishchandra Fort' is hill station like Mahabaleswar of Nagar District! It lies, on the boundary of Thane, Pune and Nagar and on the left hand side of 'Malshej Ghat'. If you want to study of fort, this is one of the best example. Height: 4000 Feet Ghat: Maleshj Ghat District: Ahamed Nagar History:- 'Harishchandra Fort' is more than three and half thousand years old. In 1747-48 this fort was won by 'Maratha' Empire from 'Mughal' and 'Late Krushnagi Shinde' was appointed as care taker. How to reach:- From Pune drive via 'Aalephata' and from Mumbai you can drive via 'Kalyan-Murbad-Malshej Ghat' and reach to 'Khubiphata'. After reached 'Khubiphata' you have to walk on the dam to reach 'Khireshwar Village' (Khubiphata-Khireshwar Village - 5 km/1 hrs). From 'Khireswar Village' one needs to walk for 1 km to reach 'Nageshwar Mandir'. This is the oldest temple since in eleventh sanctuary, and is the starting point of the trek. To reach the top of 'Harishchandra Fort' via 'Tular Khind' takes 4 hrs (If you start from 'Khireshwar Village').
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Place for visiting:- 'Harischandra Temple'- Via 'Tolar Khind' you will be reach 'Rohidas Fort'. From 'Rohidas' it takes one and half hour to reach at 'Taramati Fort'. At bottom the 'Taramati Fort' there is 'Harishchandra Temple'. Just behind the Temple there is small cave. Once you enter the cave one can see an underground room. This is where 'Chandev Rishi' wrote his 'Tatvasar Grantha'. 'Kedareshwar Cave' ?σΤιΌΤΗ£ On the left side of 'Harishchandra Temple', there is one more cave called the 'Kedareshwar Cave'. In this cave there is an ancient 'Shivlinga' which is 1 meter high and 2 meter wide. If you have to reach to 'Shivilinga' you have to cross water which is 4-5 feet deep in the rainy season. It takes 5 minutes for one round of the 'Shivilinga' and water is very cold (During the Rains). 'Taramati Fort'- 'Taramati Fort' is 4850 feet high. There are 7 caves at the bottom of Taramati Fort. In one of the cave there is a 'Ganesh Idol' which is 8 feet in height and is called the 'Ganesh Cave'. 'Konkan Kada'- 'Konkan Kada' is a main attraction for trekkers. It's 4500 feet from the bottom. This is best sunset point during winter. One younger committed suicide from here - saying that he doesn't want live without this beauty of nature. In his memory his name is written there in marble. Living Arrangement: 7 Caves are there for night camp Foods and Drinking Water: Available at 'Khireshwar Village' and on the top of the Fort Traveling journey time: Takes 4 hrs from 'Khireshwar Village' by coming from Pune and Mumbai
My advice to fellow travellers
Visit this place once in lifetime which is heaven on the earth especially in rainy season

Date of Trip : 2010-04-14 | Destination visited : Matheran
Traveller rating
0 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
A popular weekend getaway for people from mumabi. Matheran is a very nice & quiet hill station for trekking. It has many point around 30-40. It is very good place for athletes. Very close to Mumbai and ideal stress buster. Matheran is one the best weekend destination in Maharashtra. The weather is pleasantly cold through out the year. Thousands of visitors visit the place every week. No cars!! No traffic, no noise, no pollution, Matheran is what a hill station should be. Board a train from Mumbai CST (Karjat or Khopoli local) to nerel about 2hrs. of journey. From nerel either toy train or shuttle cab.cab will take 20 minutes.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
You will get mostly all types of Indian Food. Just relax and enjoy the weather. Echo Point, Panorama Point (Sunrise Point), Porcupine Point (Sunset Point), One tree Hill, Garbut Point, Heart Point, Rambag Point, Charlotte Lake are some of the places to visit. Matheran has a very small market place. Matheran is most famous for its 'chikki', a strongly recommended purchase.
My advice to fellow travellers
Get a Karjat of Khopoli bound train from Mumbai CST and get down at Neral. From Neral you can get a joyous ride to hills in the mini train. By road you can reach only upto Dasturi. From there you have to walk on your feet or you can ride on horse back or hand pulled rickshaw. You The best time to go to Matheran is probably from September to June as the monsoons get really heavy during the rest of the year.

Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
It was my dream to visit Leh. Ideal place for a trekker. Beautiful place up in the mountain ranges of the Himalayas and lots of activities to do. For a regular traveler it can be a nice place to relax and take in the fresh air (just what we wanted)
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The local food is yummy..simple and delicious...their famous momos is a must have.. do not miss the German Bakery! One can visit the dilapidated monasteries and the gompas. cute little lamas with red cheeks are the major attractions though! Shopping is good in leh if you prefer silver jewllery and pashminas which comes expensive. one must bargain though. dry fuits though are very cheap!
My advice to fellow travellers
Advisable to rest to start with. The climate gets on you. Drink lots of water even if you are not thirsty. Helps to keep the altitude sickness away. Wear sports shoes. girls, no heels. big big mistake!

My views/experience about the destination
Goa is one destination that you want to keep coming back to. I had been to goa with my friends on college trip. We had a blast, from Candolim beaches, water sports to sight seeing, you just never seem to get enough of the sun, sand and beaches. Its the best place to get away from the hectic work schedule, just lying on the beach or partying around. Goa has something for every one, if you are with your loved ones, Goa will never disappoint you it is the best get away
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Well the sea food is awesome, as specially the tiger prawn fro rs 400 it was worth it, the fort agonda is amazing, you might get view of dolphins if you are lucky. if you are at a beach dont miss the water sports as specially the para-sailing is awesome. you can also shop for collectibles near the beach shops but dont forget to bargain but i think the best of goa is the night walk on the cold beach sand in moonlight
My advice to fellow travellers
My advice stay at one beach and enjoy nature if you travel too much you may miss the best part of it. It is the best get away from the daily urban lifestyle, the beaches and the forts are amazing. dont miss the water sport and dolphins. just relax and goa will enchant you.

Delhi is a city of contracts.on one hand are Delhi's winding streets,passing through mosques,monuments,forts,lively and colorful bazaars with all sorts of items at steal prices,food stalls etc..while on the other hand,The imperial city of New Delhi displays the finely curved architecture of British Raj.The grand avenues and stately buildings of New Delhi are rich with history and culture.This city has something for every taste.You can find some gr8 nightclubs,theaters,restaurants,hotels etc. across the city...
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
This is the place to be for every shopaholic & food lover..Plethora of options to fit every wallet.karol bagh , Khan Market, Dilli haat,Sarojini Nagar are some good shopping areas.For high-end shoppers,take a trip to DLF Emporium..The most basic Dhaba has delectable food at gr8 prices.Visit the paratha gully(in Chandni Chowk) to savour the most unusual parathas & brilliant chaats..If History & culture interests you,must visit Red fort,india gate,Raj ghat,Qutub Minar,Aksar dham,Lotus Temple,Gandhi Smruti,National rail museum,Rajpatrh,Moghul gardens(only in Feb) etc...A trip on Metro is good fun..If have time also delhi monuments by the night as they are well lit up & have a charm of their own..the various museums across the city are worth a visit..also check if there are some exhibitions(eg:auto expo) happening while visiting....
My advice to fellow travellers
Bargain/Negotiate for better deals everywhere.Take a trip on the Metro.Check on the days you choose as some great places remain closed on particular days.@Females:please wear decent clothes. Dont travel alone late in the night.
