I was in luck last weekend when my friend invited me to visit the Saguna Baug with him! My finances are at an all-time low, and yet I was itching to travel “somewhere” and this weekend gateway seemed like the right option.
I was sceptical at first as the place should ideally be visited in the monsoons. But like I said, anything is better than sitting at home.
The moment I stepped into their compound, I knew I had made the right decision. Established in the middle of a small ‘village like city’, Saguna Baug has rural charm with modern facilities. They have stay facilities, of different kinds and numerous activities. You can visit them for a day too! That’s what I did!

How to reach Saguna Baug
I took a train to Karjat (S) from Thane (T).
We get off at Neral
We take a rickshaw from Neral to Saguna Baug.
Things to keep in mind while you travel to this part
- For Saguna Baug, the amount includes food and tea. The food is really good
- Neral is crowded on weekends as a number of weekend gateways are through this station. No worried here as it is just the family crowd
- Rs. 100 is the cost of the individual rickshaw to Saguna Baug
- Keep a change of clothes
Top three things I loved about Saguna Baug
1. Ease of reach
2.The Ulhas River
3. Reasonably priced
