It is better to travel by car during the monsoon season because you will be able to enjoy the road, rainfall, and drive in fog. When I visited this place I went on a bike but I had a full-body raincoat which saved me from getting wet. I am recommending a car because you can keep extra clothes, food, a flask with hot tea or coffee as per your choice.
It is just much more convenient. If you want to drive your bike then this road is just amazing but make sure you are prepared for rain.
I would say the road condition is really good. Only when you are just about to reach Kondeshwar waterfalls, in the last patch of around 1 1/2 km. It is not the smoothest road you will ever get but it’s okay for driving the car or bike.
The best season to visit the kondeshwar waterfall is the monsoon. At this time the hills are covered with clouds, the rain gives birth to the waterfall which becomes the river that you see while traveling here. The post-monsoon season is also a good choice as you can enjoy the cold weather and lush greenery.
You enter Kamshet you will see the lush greenery everywhere, the paddy fields, and the windmills far on the hills. Taking a break near these fields and soaking in the views is another thing you can do.
You can go to the source of the waterfall and click some amazing pictures like this. The water is chilled but comfortable enough to take a dip in it.
You can also visit and pray at the Temple which is located here. Kondeshwar mandir is visited by many pilgrims, they come here to pray from all over Maharashtra. The locals also perform aarti daily at the temple.
If you are coming from Pune or Mumbai then make sure you leave early in the morning. It takes around 4 hours to reach there. If you leave early and reach there by 12 PM then you can easily explore the place and can return by 5 PM.
From Pune, you will have to pay a toll at one of the toll plazas which comes just after Talegaon. I am not sure how many toll plazas you pass while coming from Mumbai. But I will update soon.
