Trip to lonavala and khandala in rains

Mumbai is experiencing heavy rains this time and tourist have to take care of the rainy season in Mumbai as roads become slippery. The traffic congestion is also too much being almost 100 km from one end to another. take care of the roadside eatables as they can make you sick with diseases and drink packaged branded drinking water like kinley with seal unbroken as Mumbai is house to many duplicates and fakes of prominent brands. The juhu beach is a fantastic place to roam around where you can frequently find Hollywood stars roaming leisurely but this time may not be suitable with monsoon hovering, makes it feel much less pleasant.

Drink hot water to keep your stomach healthy. Try visiting lonavala and khandala as it's a couple of miles from Mumbai. The rains would have made scenery worth visiting these places amidst mountains and lush green climate. Its a perfect weekend to get away from pollution laden city. Although many tourists will also be seen so you wont be all lonely.
