In this book, the author goes where no conventional guidebooks have gone before. To sapphire lakes in emerald settings like the Kakuli and Kalote lakes, which lie uncelebrated, right in Mumbai-s backyard. Or the unknown fort of Kohoj and the unsung Mhaismal hill station. Places where you can get away from commercialized tourist centers and noisy crowds.
Fact files are included with each article giving you the best time to visit, getting there, time taken, where to stay and where to eat. The book is designed by Subhash Avchat an illustrator who has done an enormous work in Marathi books and is a well-known painter and novelist. The book includes a good number of photographs and sketches.
The book can be used as a handbook for tourists and will also appeal to historians, archaeologists and academicians. And of course, it is targeted at the travel enthusiasts who want to explore the hidden treasures of Maharashtra.
