The diversity of Maharashtra is truly fascinating. It not only has beautiful cities and beaches, it has also some of the most amazing hill stations in India. The places are known for their beauty as well as for pleasant weather. The Western Ghats provide for quite a few fascinating hill resorts. These chain of mountains often rise steeply from the sea shore. Sometimes you will find mountains 40 to 50 km inland. The western ghat and the Arabian Sea combine together to create a picturesquely beautiful landscape.
Hill Stations in Maharashtra are different from the other places that you will visit in the sense that these places have something very beautiful and soothing about them.
