Guha beachWelcome to the the land of ‘Shivaji the Great’, culturally rich with great heritage. Maharashtra is bordered on one side by the Arabian sea with pristine sandy beaches dotting its coastline. Beautiful hill stations, hundreds of forts built during Shivaji’s regime, numerous scenic dams and lakes provide unending travel options. Over the decades, hundreds of Bollywood movies have been shot in these breathtaking locales.The flavor rich Maharashtrian and Malvani cuisines add to the palate. Each city, town or village has something different to offer, whether it is Puneri saris, Kolhapuri chappals or wooden toys from Sawantwadi. Every part of Maharashtra has a distinct landscape – green rolling hills, sandy white beaches lined with Suru trees, Betelnut plantations, rich cultural heritage, hand-woven saris, trademark footwear or wooden toys – all giving you a reason to return again and again to this wondrous land.

During summers, Alphonso mango ‘the king of fruits’  grows in abundance along the entire coastal belt and is exported all over the world. Relish a vada-pav, go on a rejuvenating trek to Sinhagad or Lohagad Fort, take a dip in the blue waters of Diveagar, marvel at the blooming wonders at the Kaas World Heritage Site. Join me as I take you on a wonderful journey across this beautiful state.
