Located on the Western Ghats in the Indian state of Maharashtra, Khandala is a very popular hill station located at a small distance of only 3 KM from another famous hill station in Maharashtra, called Lonavala.

In fact, such is the popularity of Khandala that its name was used in a very popular song of a Bollywood movie starring Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherjee, called Ghulam.

Geographically, Khandala is located on the road link between the Konkan Plains and the Deccan Plateau on a very big and prominent ghat called the Bhor Ghat. The very famous highway called the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, linking the two cities of Mumbai and Pune passes through Khandala.
