Ten-Second Takeaway

A road trip with friends or family is the best way to unwind! And it gets better with small detours on your 373 kms journey via NH48 to Kolhapur!

Try Authentic Kolhapuri Cuisine

On the way to Kolhapur, take a stop for approximately 5 kms before Satara at Manas dhaba and enjoy some savory and fiery mutton/chicken or some delicious and traditional pithla-bhakri at unimaginably low rates! The full-filling meal hear will get you going for the other places!

Visit A Sugarcane Farm!

Solapur, Satara and Kolhapur are famously known as the largest sugar producing areas of maharashtra. Luckily enough, there are farms filled with sugarcane throughout the entire way! Just stop your car and pick up some cases for munching on the way! {if you are encountered by an angry farmer, politely offer the price for the canes you have taken, they’re pretty chilled generally}.

    A Quick Trek To The Fort

    Sajjangadh {literally translating as the fort of good people} is hardly a 5kms of detour from the express way to Kolhapur. This fort has an important place in the history of Marathi literature as it is the resting place of Saint Ramdas Swami.

    Pay Homage To A Native Deity

    The pink floored temple of Jyotiba, is an awesome destination not only spiritually but also for those perfect #Wanderlust clicks on your social media handles! It is so because, there is gulal that is flared around the temple and adds up a beautiful contrast against the fort-temple’s black stone and from the fort, you have a breathtaking view of the dense green mountains and scarcely populated villages between them!

    Kanheri Math, approximately 20kms outside of Kolhapur district is a wax museum, one of it’s kind! With sculptures that are life like, this seven acre museum will leave you mesmerised!
