If you are a traveler, adventurer, or nature lover you must visit these top 7 places to visit in Maharashtra.
1. Ajanta and Ellora Caves
The Ajanta and Ellora Caves are located near Aurangabad in northern Maharashtra, approximately 400 km (250 miles) in Mumbai. There are 34 caves at Ellora dating from between the 6th and 11th centuries AD, and 29 caves at Ajanta dating back to between the 2nd century BC and 6th century AD. While the Ajanta caves are full of paintings and sculpture, the Ellora caves are renowned for their extraordinary architecture. The thing about these caves is that they were created by hand, with a chisel and hammer.
2. Konkan Coast
The Konkan Coast at Maharashtra delivers a bounty of beautiful beaches, which are among the most pristine in the nation. Delightfully off the tourist path, they’re devoid of much business development and several are virtually deserted.
The nearest mountain station to Mumbai, Matheran was found in 1850 by the British during their occupation of India and then developed into a favorite summer getaway. In a height of 800 meters (2,625 ft ) above sea level, this tranquil place gives a cooling escape out of searing temperatures. However, the most special thing about this and making it so unique, is that vehicles are prohibited there — even bikes. It is a soothing place to relax away from any noise and contamination. Get there by taking the panoramic toy train.
Nashik, approximately three to four hours northeast of Mumbai in Maharashtra, is a town of contrasts. On the flip side, it is an ancient and sacred pilgrimage destination using an intriguing Old City and temples, for example, Naroshankar and Kalaram. On the other side, it is home to the largest winery area in India. The famous trimbakeshwar temple is also located near Nashik.
And if you are in Nashik and looking for better accommodation you must visit Vovam Service apartment/Hotels. Best place with an affordable price range.
5.Tadoba National Park
Overlooked by tourism until lately because it had been off the beaten trail and lacked lodging, today Tadoba National Park and Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra is quickly gaining a reputation among the greatest places to find a tiger in the wild in India.
Two hours southeast of Mumbai, and halfway between Pune and Mumbai, Lonavala supplies an eclectic combination of hills, history, and experience. It is a popular, misty monsoon destination, and its verdant surroundings are the background of several Bollywood film song and dance scenes. Collars include temples, lookouts, lakes, dams, and waterfalls (throughout the monsoon season).
For new strawberries (in addition to mulberries, raspberries, and gooseberries) visit Mahabaleshwar from the Western Ghat mountains (called the Sahyadri hills in Maharashtra). Strawberry season runs from November to March and you will feast on them in Mapro Gardens along with Archie’s Farm. Otherwise, go trekking, fishing, boating, horse riding, or take in the views in one of the numerous holiday points and lookouts (there are almost 30 of these!).
