about lonavala

Derived from a Sanskrit word 'Lonavli', Lonavala is famous for its plethora of uncharted caves. Lonavala was part of the Yadava dynasty before the Mughals took seize of it. Along with the hill station of Khandala, Lonavala was an important centre for the Maratha and Peshwa empires. These twin hill stations are now famous getaway retreats from Mumbai and Pune. Founded in 1871 by Lord Elphinstone--a British Governor, this hill retreat is dotted with gushing waterfalls, blooming meadows and lush valleys. The hilly landscape makes it an ideal destination for adventure sports such as trekking, fishing and camping. The small hill station is at a height of 625 metres above sea level in the western region of Maharashtra. There is a lot to see and do in this pristine hill station. Rajmachi Point provides an unparalleled view of Shivaji’s fort and consists of a beautiful trek. Lonavala Lake is another place where you can enjoy a day amidst natural scenery. Unaffected by the impetus of growth in the cities, it is a small hideout for enthusiastic nature lovers. Lonavala has served as the shooting ground for many of the famous Bollywood movies. Also, the famous TV series “Big Boss” has been filmed at Lonavala. Adjacent to Lonavala is the scenic hill station of Khandala, which was mentioned in the famous song ‘Aati kya Khandala’ of the film Ghulam.

Karla Caves, Bhaja Caves and Lohagad Fort are some of the highly recommended tourist spots. The best time to visit Lonavala is during the monsoon as this is the time when the hills are shrouded in mist, filling the air with romance. Once there, you can go further to Duke's Nose, and also up till Ajanta and Ellora.

Lonavala and Khandala is average place to visit
Oct 28 2014
I visited Lonavala and Khandala during October,2014 and found that it is not very good place to visit. If you have seen any hill station, it will be like that only. Both the places (i.e. Lonavala and Khandala) can be seen in 2 days. If you want t ...... read more
