***Important*** Visitors must plan to reach the Centre before 6.00 pm . It is difficult to locate the Retreat in darkness. Sometimes it is totally dark in the whole surrounding area due to power cut/failure.
You can always get a prepaid taxi from the airport. But the best option for visiting abhyasis is to directly contact taxi operators to reserve a taxi. Suggested taxi operators are as listed below:
FROM PUNE RAILWAY STATION
Gorhe Khurd - (2 km before Khanapur, approx. 8 km ahead of Khadakwasala Dam). From here one may get a local rickshaw or walk 1.5 km to reach the retreat. In future we may have a Jeep at the retreat, then we can pick up the guest abhyasis from the bus stop. In case some one cannot walk this distance, he or she should inform the ashram manager in advance, so that some pick-up arrangements can be made (esp. for sr. citizens).
Alternate - The bus frequency from Railway Station is not good. One can come to SWARGATE bus terminus by bus, auto or share auto. From Swargate, one has the option of a share taxi (Jeep), share auto, a PMT bus or ST bus. Destination point as above. Route map is already on the website.
From Railway Station - By taxi - 1 to 1.25 hrs; By bus(direct) - 1.5 hrs; by bus(via Swargate) - 2 hrs.
From airport - 1 to 1.25 hrs. by taxi.
