Lonavala is the most ideal hill station for world weary travellers to visit especially from Mumbai and Pune cities. Both these urban and fast paced areas see men and women going about their daily work routines without much to offer in terms of relaxation, rejuvenation and recreation. By being just an hour and a half away from either city, Lonavala and its neighbour Khandala offer an incredible opportunity to these urban dwellers to come and put their feet up at a hill station with better climate, lesser pollution and population and a forested green cover which is otherwise impossible to experience in a metro.
The reason why Lonavala is as popular as it is for patrons is because it has something to do for everyone and it helps to fit the pockets of every possible demographic.
