A totally new city that is still
being developed, Lavasa, an hour’s drive from Pune, is an awesome hill station
that is far from the monotony of other hill stations in India. Set amidst the
seven hills of the Mose valley in the Sahyadris, this newly built town boasts
of an ecologically sustainable modern city. Needless to say, the USP of the
town is the prevalence of modern structures and facilities, nestled amidst the
lap of nature. With an awesome combination of hills, valleys, and a lake that
runs almost throughout the whole development, Lavasa is the perfect getaway for
the modern traveller who wants it all.
Lavasa has a lot to offer to those who want to indulge in adventure sports and trekking, and is also a good hideout for those who simply want to pamper themselves in spas, eat gourmet food and just relax by the lakeside. If you are looking for a short weekend break from Pune, then take your car and head to Lavasa, which is just about 60 kms away and takes no more than an hour to reach.
If you don't own a car or don't want to take your own car, then you can rent a car from Zoom at very affordable rates. Take an SUV if you have a big group and crave the nature and trekking Lavasa has to offer, or rent a sedan such as the City to move around in comfort.
