India Travels

Mumbai, Mahabaleshwar, Mussorie
in the Monsoons:

The past few weeks I have been travelling.

Landing in Mumbai, I reached Panchgani via Pune and explored the beauty of Mahabaleshwar in the monsoons and stopped over in Lonavala on the way back.

After the Sahyadri mountains, it was time for my favourite destination: the Himalayan mountain region. So it was another trip to Delhi for onward journey to Dehradun to end up in the hill stations of Mussorie and the adjoining town of Landour.
