We had originally planned to stay 2 days at Dandeli, but seeing the environment, we decided to leave after breakfast. We had spent a total of 14 hours at Dandeli and at 15K+ it was very expensive. After Bandipur and Kabini, Dandeli is quite a let down.

We drove through the ghats till Belgaum, and then got on to NH4. After a short halt at Karad to meet one of our friends, we reached Pune in the evening and checked into The Mariott.
Spent 2 nights sampling the local cuisine and catching up with some relatives.
We had actually planned to visit Koyna wildlife sanctuary, but after our experience at Dandeli, we were not sure. Secondly, there comes a point when you just want to go back home and i think we had reached that point.
So after spending 2 nights at Pune, we left for Ahmedabad after breakfast at 9:30 am and stormed into Ahmedabad around 8 pm, after a nasta break at Surat. This probably was the least enjoyable drive of the trip, as far as scenery or environment is concerned. But it probably was the fastest!
