Top 5 Weekend Rides near Pune | Weekend Trips and Getaways Pune 2017

Pune is no short of scenic destinations around it for a Weekend Motorcycle Ride! But if you search on the internet for destinations for weekend rides near Pune, all you will find is a long list of destinations that are either too far away or are too close by, with the chances that you have already been there. 

So here is a list of some Off-the-Beat Destinations for a Weekend Motorcycle Ride near Pune in no particular order.

1) Veer Dam

Veer dam is a very scenic and peaceful place with very clean and untouched backwaters. It is 65km from Pune near Shirwal and is primarily famous for bird watching/photography. Veer dam gives you a total sea-like experience but without the humidity.
It’s a perfect place for a quick motorcycle ride or a short outing with family or friends.

2) Tav

Off Road Junkie alert!! If you are one of those people who like to go crazy in the off-roads, then Tav is the place you should definitely visit, especially during the monsoons. Mud, slush, water puddles, you name it.  
Just make sure you are prepared for going off-road or else it might not turn out to be a pleasurable ride after all.

Short on time and want to go for a quick yet enjoyable ride?  Then Devdi Dam is the place. Located near the the Prati-Balaji temple near Ketkawle, Devdi Dam is a quiet and peaceful place to relax after your hectic week of work.

4) Dudhiware Pass

One of my favorite destinations for a nice one day motorcycle ride is Dudhiware Pass. It is located close to Lonavala which gives it a nice hill-station feel. The monsoon doubles the beauty of this place. The stone walls of this pass get covered with flowing water and lush green grass. 
Having a nice warm cup of tea while sitting in a cozy little shop surrounded by such beautiful scenery is beyond words.

5) Pabe Ghat

Calm and quite place amidst mountains and greenery. Visit Pabe Ghat and you'd know what I am talking about. In summers this place looks all golden with dried up grass and brown mountains all around. 
Sitting under a  cool tree shade while its scorching everywhere else drinking a cool glass of lemonade is a different experience all together.
