Lonavala Tour Packages

If you’re on the lookout for a short getaway on a long weekend, there are some great Lonavala tour packages to explore and here’s why this holiday spot should be on your list.

Discovered in 1811 by the then Governor General of Bombay, Lonavala is one of the most breathtaking hill-stations of Maharashtra, nestled amidst the Western Ghats. Centred right between Mumbai and Pune, this lush town is easily accessible and definitely worth a visit.

Being a hill station, the weather is great for most of the year and being well-developed, getting around the town by car or bus is very convenient. You could also pick a tour package if you want to be taken around to popular sights and enjoy a stress-free holiday.

Lonavala is one of those spots that has something for everyone, so when booking a Lonavala tour, make sure the package includes a bit of everything. Steeped in history, the town is well known for its numerous forts, caves and temples.

Among the forts, make sure you visit the Tikona Fort, the Rajmachi Fort, and the Lohagad Fort, which has beautiful tourist spots surrounding it. Some of the ancient caves hidden in the vast hill-station are the Karla Caves and the Bhaja Caves.

You can also offer prayers and seek blessings at the Narayani Dham Temple and the Bhairavnath Temple, located in Rajmachi. Most of these sights will be included in your tour package, but if they aren’t, make sure to customise the package and not miss out on any of these. It is here that you get a real taste of Maharashtra’s rich heritage and history.

But it isn’t just the history and temples that make Lonavala what it is. Lonavala packages have a lot more to offer, including visits to the serene lakes, picturesque waterfalls, camping, trekking, boat-rides, waterparks, and a trip to the central market so that you can bring back some souvenirs, especially the famous Lonavala Chikki and the decadent chocolate fudge that are must-haves.

While you’re here, don’t miss out on the Maharashtrian special, Vada Pav, too. Most tour packages are inclusive of food, so you needn’t worry about that. Your package will also be inclusive of travel and stay at some of the best hotels, resorts and homestays the town has to offer.

Though the package may include travelling within the hill-station, you can always choose additional tours and overnight stays if you want to head to the outskirts or go camping. Owing to the all-inclusive, carefully curated itineraries, and the surreal beauty of the town, Lonavala is flocked by tourists from across the world, making it one of the most popular and spectacular sights.
