The fastest time travel by train from Mumbai to Lonavala is by the 17017 Rajkot Junction Secunderabad Junction Express in 1 hr 33 mins while all the other trains take over 2 hrs .My Royal Enfield “Bullet 350 Black BS IV” did it in under 2 hrs in extremely bad road conditions .During monsoons i advise travelers to use 4-wheeler vehicles or either travel by train or other public transport .Unless a “Adrenaline Junkie” like me its not worth the time ,money and trouble of travelling on a 2 wheeler to this unique monsoon hill station of Mumbai.Public transport is much cheaper and safer as also 4 wheeler private transport in a group.
A view of “BHUSHI DAM” from a snack stall situated on the outside boundary of the steps.The gush of the flow of water is tremendous and although harmless on viewing is extremely dangerous if a person slips on these slippery step as the force of the gushing water is tremendous. Lots of food stalls on either side of the dam steps for tourists .
Lonavala lake” filled to the brim with monsoon rains .Swimming is strictly forbidden and there is a patrol guard from “I.N.S Shivaji” to prevent tourists and locals from entering this vast lake that seems like a large swimming pool but dangerous to swim .During peak summer in April/May this entire lake is almost dry which is unbelievable when viewing it at its maximum capacity.
