Nothing breaks the monotony of city life than a visit to a hill station. Mahabaleshwar is one such place that has been the refuge of many city slickers. Tucked away in the Sahyadri Range of Maharashtra, the British made the hill station the summer capital of the Bombay Province in 1829. The hills here also boast one of the few evergreen forests in India. The River Krishna also originates in these lush hills. The town is well connected to its neighbours. The nearest rail head here is in Satara, which is about 60 km away and the closest airport is Pune International Airport about 120 km away from the hill station. The best way to travel here is via road by your own vehicle, a taxi, or state-run and private buses.Finding secure and comfortable hotels on a budget when you’re travelling with your family can seem like a challenge.
