With a history as old as 1600 years, Pune welcomes you in its heavenly surroundings. A leisurely city in the state of Maharashtra, Pune is earlier known as Parents Paradise as older people used to live here after getting retired of their professional life. Later on young blood took over the place with a sudden rise in number of engineering and management colleges and companies subsequently. Train to Pune used to carry lots and lots of students and later professionals turned students in them to their respective hometowns. Their homes could be from any where between Delhi to Mumbai, or any other place for that matter. Hence, Pune had to be in better connectivity with other cities and states and this is what Indian Railways contributed into.

Pune is few hours journey by road to Mumbai. Khandala, Lonavala and its Sunset are picturesque.

Students come here often seeking for a change from their campus. But if you are leaving far from here, you need a train to Pune first to get on road for more fun on your trip. Parvati Mountains are among those places in Pune where people prefer to go on weekends rather than spending it in a Mall or corner of their home. If you are a resident of Delhi, you could come from Delhi to Mumbai and enjoy the commercial capital of India and then come to Pune and enjoy its serenity.

Climate of Pune is very soothing and never too hot or cold like Delhi and not exactly humid as Mumbai. People could spend their time in trekking in winters. If not interested in physical work one could involve himself in visiting places like Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, Darshan Museum, Tribal Museum, Mahatma Phule Museum, Shaniwar Wada, Vishrambaug Wada, Saras Baug, Parvati Hill temples, and many more fun sites.

All of this could be achieved only after taking any of the multiple trains to Pune running on various routes. There might be some trains from Delhi to Mumbai that would have Pune in between but that issue would needed to be checked.

India has become a smaller place to roam around as Indian railways has provided us with a breeze of fresh air that was squeezed off from us when we used to wait our number on ticket booking booth at various railway stations. Now, whether we are to take train to Pune or from Delhi to Mumbai, we just need to reach to our laptop and Internet and IRCTC does everything for us.
