    @Ananth, We wanted to take pictures of Kaas Plateau and surroundings but it was seriously too foggy. Also there was a constant drizzle. Considering both, we did not take any snaps there. Even while riding, we had to ride concentrating on the tail lamp of the rider in front.

    @Roamer, Road between Bamnoli and Tapola is completely tar road and the condition is pretty decent. Minor pot holes in between. If you are aware of Tamhini road, then comparatively Tamhini road is far more pot holed as compared to road between Bamnoli and Tapola.

    Tapola to Mahabaleshwar is little more wider than road between Bamnoli and Tapola. I would rate condition of the road (pot holes, rough edge etc) same as Bamnoli to Tapola.

    However, a note of caution - while exiting Satara, climbing towards Kaas, initial stretch of about 2-3 kms is unsurfaced tar road. Little difficult to navigate turns on such surface, especially so for RE's.

    I would say - for road conditions, I would rate 3.5/5


    take care and ride safely

    Thanks for the detailed info,Rajesh. Considering the remoteness of these places, roads are far better than few in city it seems
