Lovely write up there, great images and they have come out foggy in bits, given the post monsoon situation in that belt... I have planned to visit the place last month, but had to drop the plan at the last moment.. Will the flowers still be blooming if I visit it in coming days?

Hi I have done the Mahabaleshwar drive last week...The trip was truly satisfying and enjoyable. Sure will share the travelogue and photos sometime as time permits. Kaas was a bit of a disappointment, Though sceneries and vistas around are pretty good, we did not see many flowers as expected, nothing like coloured landscapes. I would suggest you to start early as the crowd multiplies by around noon.

My brother is planning to drive from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar during Christmas week.

Any latest updates on routes and places to visit?

Don't miss it. Try the routes mentioned here from Panchgani.. IT will be isolated and you can enjoy the nature in peace. Usually other places and routes around Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani are a way too commercial and crowded.

Agree on it, there are multiple roads leading to Pachgani and Mahabaleshwar.

 

We need to plan in such a way that we can cover few places(kaas..) while driving back to Hyderabad.

what's the name of the place you stayed at Panchgani @sagar?

 

We have stayed at a BNB in Panchgani. It was an 8 bedroom villa if I'm not wrong with a small pool and a BBQ place in the Lobby. It seemed perfect for a group of 15 to 20 :D

We are planning a drive along with my office mates. We are considering Goa. But I have shown this post to them. Now they are inclined towards Mahableshwar. Is it right time to visit?

Any recent road condition update from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar?

This is not the right time to visit this region. The place looks all dried up with absolutely no greenery. August to October would be perfect to plan your trip to Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar :)

Evenings and mornings are good. Don't expect greenery. Grass is completely dry during our visit on feb. If it is a relaxing drive. Book a resort with view and enjoy. 

If you are planning to explore, avoid till monsoon.

Hyderabad to Solapur is excellent except for 40 kilometres patch, road work under process. 

Solapur to Mahableshwar is not so great. Most of it is a single lane road. But roads are manageable.

Hey @uday, You can check out the link below to know how the greenery turns its colours to dry grass in the western ghats region from late October until the rains begin :)

      I did not travelled for three months and the traveller in side me is thirsty.
      Few plans to West Maharastra and Goa with friends did not materialised.
       
      I had also planned a trip to Chitrakote falls with family friends but they were afraid of travelling in Chattisgarh.
      It was late night of 27th July, 2018 Friday and I was desperate to go to some place.
      I asked my wife and son Shall we go to Chitrakote Waterfalls? They said yes.
       
      Rough route plan was with me. No bookings for night stay made. 
       
      Got up early on 28-07-2018 Saturday and started from Home by 5.30 AM and reached Warangal by 7.30 AM.
       
      I know the route up to Eturunagaram before Bhogatha and I know very well that once we cross Warangal,
      it is difficult to get any food. So we had Breakfast at Hotel Ashoka, Hanmakonda, once my favorite. Entered in to Mulugu road (from here entire roads are 2 lane) by 8.30 AM. 
       
      Our original thought was to come back in the same route from Chitrakote but it proved wrong.
      Initially we thought of seeing Bhogatha falls in return journey so as to reach Chitrakote early.
      By 10.30 we were at Bhogatha Falls cross road and its only 1 Km from there. We thought lets have a look without wasting much time.
       
      It proved to be good decision.
