The entire tourist place of the whole of Lonavala is between 80 and 100 kilometers. In this case, if you bring petrol from ₹ 200 to ₹ 300 in your bike, then it will be enough for you.
First of all I decided to see Lonavala Lake. This lake falls about 3 kilometers from the main city of Lonavla.
If you go to see Lonavala Lake during the rains, it looks quite beautiful. Because at that time the lake in Lonavala is filled with water. If you go to see Lonavala Lake in winter or in summer then you will get to see very small amount of water here.
You can leave to see Lonavla at 5:00 am or 6:00 am. You can roam the entire Lonavala comfortably by evening.

Entry to Kori Fort is absolutely free. The road leading to the Kori Fort is completely deserted. In such a situation, you are going to have a lot of fun in riding the bike.
Although the quality of the road is very good. You can also spend some time alone on the roadside. At the same time, you will get to see quite a lot of spectacular views along the way.
I traveled to many places in Maharashtra and everywhere I came to see sago khichdi. In such a situation, I decided to eat sago khichdi in Lonavla. It tastes great. You can definitely eat a plate of sago khichdi. A plate of sago khichdi may cost you ₹ 70.

When you are coming back from Lions view point, you can stop at the bhusi dam for some time on the way. If you are going to lonavla during the rainy season, you will also see a waterfall flowing at the bhusi dam. Which looks quite beautiful. But if you go to lonavla here in winter or in summer then you do not get to see that great view here.
In Lonavla you get to see another famous tourist place. And that is Karla Caves. To reach the caves of Karla, you have to work a little hard.

On the way to the caves of Karla, you get to see a lot of shops. From where you can also do some shopping for yourself.
After seeing all these places you can visit Narayani Dham Temple. It is a very big temple. Where you get to see idols of Maa Durga Shiva and Hanuman ji.
Also, some gardens maintained in Narayani Dham temple. If you want to take some time alone for yourself, this place is quite good. If you go to see Narayani Dham temple in the evening then it will be even better for you.
You also get to see a lot of wax museums in Lonavla. At the same time, you also get to see haunted houses here.
If you want to visit the Wax Museum, then for this you will have to spend at least ₹ 150. Here you will find wax statues of big people like Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, APJ Abdul Kalam.
I take you to another viewpoint and that is the Rajmachi Garden and Viewpoint. On Rajmachi Udyan Mumbai Pune Expressway you will see. Although I did not find Rajmachi garden so special. In such a situation, if you do not have time, then you can leave this place.
There is also a Rajmachi viewpoint here as well. From where you see a waterfall flowing towards the front. If you come here in the evening time, you will feel quite good.
