Hi All,

This weekend we are going to Harihareshwar - Dapoli from Pune.

What route should we use? -

1) Pune - Pirangut - Paud - Tamhini - Mangaon - Harihareshwar - Daploi

2) Pune - Wai - Mahabaleshwar - Poladpur - Khed - Dapoli - Harihareshwar

Harihareshwar to Dapoli is about 80 KMs, is there any ferry Service available for this route. if yes then are they allowing Car (WagonR) on Ferry and what is Cost?

What is good option to Stay @ Dapoli or Harihareshwar? Last year at Kashid, we stayed in a Home (Owner had provided two rooms for staying). And we love that place, it was just 2 Mins walk from Beach and was clean and decent.

We will hardly spend some time at hotel except Night and that is why we are not looking for a Good resort/hotel with lot of facility.

Please share me your experience, so we can create a memorable journey.

We had stayed at the MTDC resort @ Harihareshwar.
Here is the review of the place on my travel blog http://10yearitch.com/?p=2662
I'd suggest staying at Diveagar vs Harihareshwar.

Dapoli was great ... lovely, isolated beaches ...
Here is another with lots of info on the Konkan Coast.

It has a review on a resort we stayed at Dapoli.

Safe Travels!

Any of the route would be fine I guess. I dont know what is concern about the routes. As far as the ferry service is concerned.. Yes it is available from Veshwi to Bagmandala and vice versa.. It would cost around 50 for car.. For motorcycle it was 25 rs including one person.. Important thing is it saves lot of road travel.. Service runs every half hour so you dont have to wait much..
Life is a journey and journey should never end because of ups and downs!!

Back from Harihareshwar Dapoli Trip

Last weekend I had a Harihareshwar Dapoli trip.

Overall this trip was adventures, thrilling and hectic. We enjoyed but it was not worth to our efforts.

My friends came to Pune from Mumbai on Friday itself and on Saturday sharp @ 7.00 AM we left Pune for Tamhini. We took halt @ Mulsi lake and Waterfall, which is very beautiful.

I thought in Tamhini Ghat section, we could faced rain or thunder showers but weather was not with us it was very hot but greenery of Tamhini at its most.

We reached Mangaon @ 10.30 and reached Shrivardhan @ 11.30, we spent few time @ beach and took rest at one Restaurant.

We thought to reach Dapoli by Evening and left for Harihareshwar. We reached Harihareshwar @ 3 and spend time @ Temple and Beach.

We decided to do Bagmandala - Bankot Ferry service to reach Dapoli. (this is a good option and saves lot of time and journey)

We reached Bagmandala Jetty @ 4.15 and got news that Ferry Service is canceled for 4.30 to 7.30 (We decided to spent night at MTDC but resort was full) and without taking no Time we decided to wait till ferry service resumes.

We again back to Jetty @ 7.15 and lot of people were waiting for Ferry there.

We loaded our Car in Ferry and reached Bankot @ 8.10. (it was thrilling and new to us). More thrills are yet to come.

We were threaten by locals that we should use Bankot - Devhare - Madangaon - Kariwali but thanks to One group who is going to Dapoli via Kelshi and we joined them.

Next 2 hours were so thrilling as we passed from Thick Jungle and only faced 4 vehicle in Opposite Side. We took halt at place and enjoyed Dark Clear Sky, I could able to see galaxy also.

We reached Dapoli by 10.30 and searched for Hotel.

Next morning we went to Murud and Harnai Beach and return to hotel by 12. We left for Pune @ 12.30 and reached Mahabaleshwar by 3.30 PM.

One of my group member lost his camera @ Mahabaleshwar, In hurry he forgot to took it.

We reached Pune @ 8.45 and other group members left for Mumbai, they reached Mumbai by 2.30 night.

It was very hectic but adventures journey.

People are helpful and I found no problem traveling in Konakn side.
