My family and I want to go to Kolapur. I want to know if it is closer to Pune or Mumbai?
Kolhapur is closer to Pune.There are many trains which takes apx 7 to 8 hr to reach kolhapur.Best train is sahyadri ex which is an over night train and other good trains are koyna ex,maharastra ex and mahalaxmi ex.All these trains runs daily.The trains from Mumbai to Kolhapur goes via pune so no need to gi Mumbai.
Kolhapur can be best reached from Pune (if you are coming from Chennai). There are a lot of express MSRTC busses plying from Pune to Kolhapur at regular interval. The busses ply through Pune to destinations beyond / in-and-around Kolhapur. The journey will take approximately 4 hours.
Further, if you are arriving from Chennai, you may take a train from Reniguntha (Haripriya Express 17415 : Tirupati - Kolhapur Train) for directly reaching Kolhapur. It operates on Wednesday.
You can explore Bangalore-Kolhapur as well. THere are quite a few trains as well as Volvo buses which takes about 12 hrs of journey
Thank you so much for this information.
