After being locked in the four walls of our home, a weekend getaway with just you and your special one is a must. Beautiful hill stations in each direction surround the city of Bombay, but which should be your number one location for the next long weekend? Let us look at the top three weekend getaways that you must get your hands on for you and your plus one.
A trip that will require minimal to no planning and have you reach the destination in just a couple of hours, Alibaug. Whether you wish to drive your way up there or indulge in the scenic ferry ride from Fort, your journey will be effortless and fun.
With several beaches and luscious greenery, Alibaug acts as the perfect getaway for nature lovers. You can choose to have a luxurious stay at the multiple five-star resorts or have a raw but comfortable stay at the numerous Lake Resorts of Alibaug. While all the other destinations from Mumbai require a drive, Alibaug is the perfect solution for couples who do not wish to spend extra time of their weekend driving to and from their destinations.
The Kamshet hill station in Maharashtra’s Western Ghats is a lesser-known destination between the Mumbai – Pune expressway. If you are a couple who cannot sit idle and need a little activity, Kamshet ghats are the one for you. The thick green trees, clear lakes, and hilly terrains ensure a refreshing trip while you stay away from the city’s hustle.
Being a well-connected destination, you can reach here through trains or by your car. The Bhandar Dongar is the most attractive location for adventure lovers to enjoy paragliding. You can even awaken your spiritual self at the Kondeshwar Temple. The animal sacrificing at Bhairi Cave uses multiple utensils for cooking. However, legends state that people who try to steal those utensils are pushed into the adjacent valley as a punishment. While there is no such proof, we believe there is no need to prove it either!
If there is a destination that offers the perfect blend of luxury, adventure, and scenery all at once, it is Igatpuri. If you are ever in doubt and confused about where to head, trust us, and choose Igatpuri. All your stress will fly away when you decide to meditate at the world-famous Dhamma Giri. You will get a tinge of the Myanmar culture and the pagoda as well.
While there are several other forts, give the adventurous you a day to remember by heading to the Kalsubai Peak. Incorporate a rafting experience at the Vaitarna River and then head to the Camel Valley to experience a lovely sunset. Of course, if this was still not enough, the magnificent Vihigaon waterfalls will have you drenched and in awe.
The famous hill stations of Lonavala, Matheran, and Mahabaleshwar are always too crowded. But with these locations, you will enjoy a secluded and beautiful weekend with your special one.
