Nothing can hit the reset button quite like an escape set in the lap of nature. If you're nodding at that thought, here's one spot that should definitely make it your list of getaways - the Megh Malhar Agro Tourism Resort. Located at a distance of only 45 minutes from Pune and Lonavala (Mumbaikars, very close to you too), and considered to be the biggest agro-tourism and family resort in Pune, Megh Malhar is spread over 22 acres of huge farmland, surrounded by mountains, a river, other farms and relaxing views.
The folks of Mumbai and Pune have obviously lucked out, but we would definitely recommend driving or taking a train up or down here because it is so worth it! Not only do you get to enjoy nature at its best - experience the sun rise and set in the mountains, walk by the flowing river, enjoy beautiful flowers, colourful butterflies and birds sign, you also get to explore the huge farm and learn more about farming and check out farms of mango, banana, safodila, coconuts, drumstick and seasonal vegetables. What's more, you get to eat what you see! That's right, delicious and fresh veg food cooked from hand picked veggies. You can also go trekking or choose to just relax and enjoy the open starry night skies.
In terms of accommodation, you can pick between the Tree House (located in the Mango Orchard), it feels like living on a tree or machan and is ideal for a couple, Standard Cottage (surrounded by farms), the Farmhouse (3 bedroom, spacious villa with kitchen, hall, big terrace and private lawn) or Premium AC Cottages (spacious rooms with beautiful mountain/farm view and spacious sit out). Best part? Prices start as low as INR 3,600 for two guests per night. Click on Enquire Now to make bookings.
