    We are a couple with a teenage son planning to spend a few days with the family in Lonavala and wanted some recommendations on some resorts there.

    I have not really decided on a budget, it would be finalized after seeing the actual resort and the facilities there.

    Like mentioned we were planning to spend a few days, but according to how many days should ideally be spent in Lonavala?

    The ideal duration of a Lonavala trip depends on your travel preferences and the activities you want to do. However, to cover all the major attractions and experience the essence of the hill station, a trip of 2-3 days is recommended. Here is a suggested itinerary for a 2-3 day trip to Lonavala:

    Day 1: Arrive in Lonavala and check-in to your resort/hotel. Visit the Lonavala Lake, which is a popular tourist spot offering scenic views and boating activities. Later, head to Bushi Dam, a picturesque dam surrounded by lush greenery and waterfalls. Spend some time here enjoying the natural beauty and taking photographs. In the evening, visit Khandala, a nearby hill station, and enjoy a sunset view at Duke's Nose viewpoint.

    Day 2: Start your day early and head to the Rajmachi Point, a popular viewpoint that offers panoramic views of the Sahyadri Mountains. You can also visit the nearby Shree Narayani Dham Temple, which is known for its beautiful architecture and spiritual significance. Later, visit the Karla and Bhaja Caves, ancient rock-cut Buddhist caves that offer an insight into the rich history and culture of the region. In the evening, relax at your resort/hotel and enjoy the amenities and facilities.

    Day 3: On the last day of your trip, visit the Lohagad Fort, a historic fort that offers scenic views of the surrounding hills and valleys. You can also trek to the nearby Visapur Fort for a more challenging and adventurous experience. Later, visit the Lonavala Wax Museum, a popular attraction that features lifelike wax statues of famous personalities. In the evening, head back to your resort/hotel and prepare for your departure.
