Scenic Road Trip to Velneshwar 
Posted 3 days ago
Mode of Transport:Car
We left from Pune around 8 am and took the NH4 route via Satara. At Umbaraj we had to get off the highway and turn right towards the Chiplun state highway. We passed the town of Patan through scenic green fields till we reached Koyna. The serene Koyna river ran parallel to the road. We descended the Kumbharli Ghat with awesome views down to the coast till the town of Chiplun on the Mumbai - Panjim highway (NH17).

We stopped at Hotel Abhishek, a popular restaurant serving Malvani thalis, for lunch.
After a sumptuous lunch we proceeded towards the beach town of Guhagar. About 4 km before reaching Guhagar we turned left to go to Velneshwar along the coastal road (SH4) of Maharashtra.

The last stretch from Chiplun to Guhagar to Velneshwar was through dense greenery and numerous small ghats along the way. We reached the MTDC Velneshwar resort at 4 pm. 

We quite enjoyed the 300 km long drive from Pune to Velneshwar.
