Mahabaleshwar (Satara)

Winding roads, a cool breeze at all times, vantage points offering breathtaking views of hills and valleys. Well, that’s Mahabaleshwar which along with Panchgani, makes for a wonderful hill station destination. Mahabaleshwar is a vast plateau, bound by valleys on all sides. It reaches a height of 1,439 meters at its highest peak above sea level, known as Wilson or Sunrise Point.

Matheran

Asia’s tiniest hill station but with lots to offer by way of scenic view points, long treks through forested areas, and a quaintness of its own. Known as the ‘pedestrian’ hill station because all vehicles have to per force stop at Dasturi and one has to either walk or hitch a horse ride into Matheran. The hill station in itself is an undulating hilltop cloaked in shady trees and ringed by walking trails leading to several vantage points from where you can have stunning views.

Goa

The smallest state of India, Variously known as “Pearl of the Orient”, is located on the western coast of India in the coastal belt known as Konkan. The state of Maharashtra borders Goa on the north, the state of Karnataka on the south and east. Panaji (Panjim) is the state capital located on the banks of the Mandovi River and Vasco. The magnificent scenic beauty and the architectural splendors of its temples, churches and old houses have made Goa a firm favorite with visitors around the world.
