Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar

Nestled between five hills Panchgani is an idyllic mountain retreat in the Krishna valley. Tucked away in the Satara district of Maharashtra, Panchgani is a well-known hill station of Maharashtra on the highway to Mahabaleshwar from Pune.

Panchgani derives its name from the five hills around it. At an altitude of 1334 m it is just 38 m below Mahabaleshwar. These 38 m translate themselves into a breathtaking 20 kms approach from Mahabaleshwar, offering heart stopping views of the river krishna on one side & the coastal plains on the other. Panchgani is the quintessential hill station, with the Raj stamped indelibly all over it. It can be seen in the old architecture of the old British buildings, the Parsi houses, & the boarding schools that have been for a century or more.

Amble along the walkways, thickly canopied by lush trees & vegetation & delights in the secrets you come upon. The Krishna, snaking through tiny hamlets, farms & ravines, hundreds of meters below. Visit table land, a flat mountain peak & feast your eyes on the coastal plains, looking like miniature water colors. Select a horse from one of the numerous stables & canter along uncharted routes through hidden lovers' lanes, to the caves & kamalgad fort. Or while away at the bazaar. Panchgani is one of the rare places that doesn't crowd anyone, yet in its own unhurried way deeply touches every visitor.

How To Reach

The total distance between Mumbai to Panchgani would be about 265 kms. It is approximately a 5 hours drive from Mumbai. One way would be to go via Mahad but the best bet instead would be the famous Mumbai Pune Express Highway. A word of advice here, that, though the road is lucrative and appealing please don’t overspeed and keep it between 80 and 90 kmph. You can break for refreshments on the Food Mall or Food Plaza on the Expressway.

At the end of the Expressway you take the road to bypass the Pune city with the Highway that takes you to directly to Katraj. After passing Katraj Ghat the pleasant drive continues and you come to the scenic Khambatki Ghat. Once you come down the Khambatki Ghat keep on to the improved highway till you come across ‘Surur Faata’ on your right. It takes you to Wai, which is on the foothills of Panchgani, this road is really enjoyable with its own hamlet feeling and farms by the road.

The phrase - 'getting there is half the fun' finds its meaning relevant on this route. Wai is famous for its ‘Pedhas’ and the ‘Dholya Ganpati’- a huge statue of Lord Ganesh. Just after you get out of the small town of Wai, starts the picturesque ‘Pasarni Ghat’. This is the last milestone on your journey towards Panchgani and you know not by the boards that you are in Panchgani, but the cold breeze that touches your cheeks.

You are welcomed by the red soil, the strawberry farms, the old English architectural structures, the boarding schools, and the school kids along the road. Soon you reach local marketplace and just about five kms is Whitehouse at the Bhillar Village, on the Panchgani-Mahabaleshwar Road.
