What Makes It Awesome

If you’re done with going to Lonavala for the weekend (we are) and would rather go someplace interesting but not too far, head to Talegaon. Situated on the highest altitude between Mumbai and Pune at 2,200 feet above sea level, the town is at a higher altitude than Lonavala, thus is bestowed with pleasant weather throughout the year.

Why Talegaon? Well, Talegaon is home to Japalouppe Equestrian Centre – the only equestrian facility in the country boasting of state-of-the-art facilities.They have equestrian services like stabling, breaking-in training and a petting farm (we need more of those). You can become a member, however if you just want to experience horse riding once in a while, you can pay per session. A session will cost you INR 1,500.

Note: If you're a beginner and want to understand the basics of horse riding, you'd require at least 20 hours of training.

They also have picnic packages starting at INR 500 per head which includes beverages, 45 minute guided animal petting and feeding tour. Depending on the package you choose, you can also opt for lunch as well. With hoards of tourists swarming over Lonavala almost everyday sending you into a cribbing frenzy, this riding trip may just be the answer to your weekend-break worries. 

Pro-Tip

Don't leave home without comfortable clothing and footwear. A change of clothes, snacks and water. They provide helmets at the venue.

Talegaon is the perfect pit stop if you’re planning on taking a breather. You can take a road trip with friends or just hop onto a bus and get off at the toll booth (it’s walking distance from there).
