You must have heard of manmade lakes and new townships built on barren land totally devoid of any infrastructure. But have you ever heard of a brand new hill station built on a selected portion of a valley in a range of mountains? Well, that’s precisely what has happened in the heart of the Sahyadri range of mountains along the 20 kilometers long Warasgaon Lake. An amazing hill station named Lavasa has come up, with its hotels, restaurants, clubs, nature trails, parks, gardens and nursery crèches. There is the “Lavasa Experince Zone” as well that can take you on an audio-visual voyage of what Lavasa offers for enhancing your pleasure. They have specially trained guest-relations executives to compliment your experience, 3D experimental films for your viewing, as also a kid zone for your little ones.
This made-to-order hill station is also fairly well connected with Maharashtra’s famed metropolitan mega cities, namely, Mumbai (88 kilometers) and Pune (200 kilometers). You will find here all the facilities that are associated with a pulsating, vibrant and self-contained city.
No matter what the environment gurus may say, Lavasa is a grand example of what man can achieve if there is the will to fulfill a dream. There is the panoramic picture of rolling hills and green valleys, as far as the eye can see. Lavasa also blends old world charm with modern day living experience magically. In other words, you will get everything here – nature, entertainment, upscale and affordable accommodation, great infrastructure, plenty of activities to choose from, and very good food.
