Popular Lavasa Tour Packages
Nestled in the Western Ghats, Lavasa is amongst the first well-planned cities, with abundant greenery and ample things to do, that can be explored with Lavasa tour packages. The hill-station is situated 60 kms from Pune and is ideal for a weekend getaway with friends or family.
The design and structure of Lavasa draws its inspirations from the Italian town, Portofino and offers exemplary landscapes coupled with a serene ambience. Sprawling across 2500 acres, the sightseeing tours in this city include immaculate parks, cultural centres and dams, along with some forts and palaces on the outskirts that boast of Maharashtra’s rich heritage.
Ideally, Lavasa packages that offer a 2N/3D stay are perfect for traversing the entire city. You can start your day by heading to the various dams including the Temghar Dam and the Varasgaon Dam.
The massive Temghar Dam, is a major source of water and a great picnic spot, while the Varasgaon Dam is among the three big dams of the city, that also supplies water to Lavasa. Head to the waterfall situated nearby to get a glimpse of the all-embracing mountains and experience the cool water splashing against your face.
While choosing from a range of Lavasa tour packages, make sure you opt for one that offers water-sports, because that’s something you definitely don’t want to miss out on. If your package isn’t inclusive of water-sports, customise it your way, so that you can spend a day at the Lakeshore Watersports where you engage in exciting adventures like jet skiing, bumper boats, kayaking, water volleyball and more! Take a tour to Bamboosa too, where local artisans craft bamboo products owing to the abundant bamboo trees around.
Lastly, make sure to check out the Snake Park and spend an evening at the Lakeside Promenade where you can gorge on delicacies at the many eateries around and even take a cycling tour within the area.
Heading to the city is extremely convenient as you can opt for a Lavasa tour from both, Mumbai or Pune. While Pune is closer and you’ll arrive at your destination within an hour, the beauty of choosing a tour from Mumbai is that most tours offer additional sightseeings on the way to the city, as well.
These include the famous Rajmachi Point, popular for trekking, Tiger Point, and Bushi Dam. Once at Lavasa, you can travel ahead to Pune and visit the Sinhagad Fort, Saras Baug, and the historic Shaniwar Wada.
Booking through a tour also means that travelling within the city and accommodation is well taken care of. Lavasa offers some luxurious 4-star properties to reside at, like The Waterfront Shaw and Hotel Celebration.
You can also pick from other holiday homes, hotels and retreats that suit your budget and requirements. What’s amazing about Lavasa is that apart from all the activities and sightseeings that you can add to your list, it’s an all-season holiday destination. The weather here is pleasant all year-round and the pristine surroundings are breathtaking, no matter when you visit!
If Lavasa’s aesthetic charm and nature’s bounty has forced you to make those holiday bookings already, we aren’t surprised. Get packing!.
