The Taxi charges are about Rs 1800/- one way. We could also help organize taxis. (The ferry services are suspended during the monsoons)
The drive from Mumbai to Mahua Bagh takes over 3 hours (early morning recommended).
You have to drive up to Panvel and then take the road that passes through the Karnala Bird Sanctuary onto Pen. You cross Alibag (100 kms from Mumbai) and drive along the beautiful Kashid beach till you reach Nandgaon.
Carry on towards Murud. Just about 200mts after the Mazgaon bridge you turn right onto a smooth and leveled kuchha road that takes you straight to Bagh.
For those geared for a little more adventure, you drive 2 kms further till you arrive at Mohra bus stop from where you take a right-right turn onto a country road which is about a km in length and leads you straight to Mahua Bagh too.
You can also go to Mahua Bagh/Murud via Roha, a small town dotted heavily with large and shady trees.
This route is 10 kms. longer, but you will pass through beautiful country side and will drive along and past the main entry for the Phansad Sanctuary. You then reach Mazgaon and follow the same directions as above..
