    Did You Know You Can See The Entire Pune Skyline From These Hidden Hills?

    Sneha posted on 06 March

    What Is It?

    On one of our recent weekend expeditions across Pune, we stumbled upon Taljai Tekdi, a lesser-known quiet hilltop near Sahakar Nagar, with a breathtaking view of the city skyline.

    What Did I Like?

    Taljai Tekdi is for those who want to escape the city life for just a couple of hours, perhaps, to think peacefully in the quiet. Situated at a height of 2,000 feet, the road to this hill passes through Shivaji Maratha College campus. Perfect for bikers, the mountain path is quite smooth with sharp turns {so, be careful} and has the most stunning views ever.

    There’s nothing much to do out here except taking long walks through the dense forest and watching the sunset with your partner. Taljai is full of greenery, relatively cooler than the main city and extremely peaceful. Some of the locals informed us that one may spot peacocks and other migratory birds out here, especially during monsoons. What’s more? There is a quaint temple at the entrance of the hills and a jogging track that’s open between 5.00 am and 9.00 am, and from 4.30 pm to 7.00 pm.

    Anything Else?

    There are a few streetside food kiosks at the foothill that sell lip-smacking grub; from crispy onion fries to corn on the cob, healthy bitter gourd and fruit juices, coconut water and more.
