Hello fellow IM ers,

I will be driving from Pune to Malshej this weekend and need some expert advice around road directions & recent road conditions.

I will be taking the Pune - Nashik highway(NH50) but am confused where to leave it. According to google map I have choices between

a) taking a left turn from Narayangaon and take the road till Junnar. From there take the Junnar-Kalyan road and reach Malshej Ghat

b) continue on NH50 till Alephata & take left from there onto Ahmednagar-Kalyan road and reach Mashej Ghat.

Can somebody advice which route will be the best in terms of road conditions? According to map the 2nd option will be adding 20KMs more but I am ready to take it if the road conditions are better.

Urgent help would be highly appreciated.. Thanks in advance

To approach from Junnar would mean crossing an extra ghat. The Ganesh Ghat between Junnar and Malshej is steep and narrow. The roads on the Pune side of Malshej are strictly OK. I did the stretch from Malshej to Bhimashankar via Junnar in May and the road quality was just about OK.

Also, consider the fact that all nodal places - like Alephata, Junnar, Narayangaon, Otur will add some amount of traffic to your travel.

And a request - please maintain decorum and traffic rules. Malshej is notorious in monsoons for drunk rioting crowds with an absolute lack of traffic sense. I would not like to have an IMer be a part of that group.
