The monsoon special hill station closest to Mumbai city gets it name Lonavala  from the Prakrit language, which basically means a series of resting places etched from stone. The place springs to life during the monsoons and offers some spectacular sunrise, (even when fog hit). Folklore also says that Lonavala is derived from the Sanskrit word lonavali which translates to caves, as Karla, Bhaja and Bedsa caves and forts Lohagad and Visapur all lie in near to the twin hill stations of Lonavala-Khandala.
