The trip to Mahabaleshwar is incomplete, without a visit to Mapro Garden, at least that is what, we are made to believe. This garden is actually near Panchagani. It is a well maintained garden and there are strawberry fields, just behind the garden. The garden has a restaurant, which serves limited choice of dishes, like sandwiches, thick shakes and obviously strawberry cream. I found them to be highly priced, even compared to Mahabaleshwar. This garden has a shop for Mapro products, where they are available at discounted rates. Sampling of the products is also available.
Overall my trip to Mahabaleshwar was good. It is still well maintained and clean hill station. It is advisable to hire a local taxi and request the driver to take you around. The rates are fixed for the season, and they are quiet reasonable. The drivers are well experienced and do plan your trip well. They would be flexible for time and will not hurry. I met Mr. Anant Parthe there and would recommend him to anyone, who is interested to visit these places..
These are some flowers, I clicked at Mapro Garden.
I just wanted to add, almost all these photographs were clicked by me without making any adjustments, in their natural settings… see you soon, with some more clicks !!
