Overnight at Pune or Ranjangaon (for Ranjangaon take Chakan exit and from there take Chakan - Ranjangaon Toll Road).
Pune Traffic is a real headache and so depart early for Ranjangaon (50 kms - 1 hour). Its located right on the Ahmedanagar Highway.
From Ranjangaon go to Theur which is 40 kms of country Road or come back to Pune and from Loni turn for Solapur Road and Chintamani at Theur is about 5 kms from Main Road at 25 kms from Loni..
From Theur to next stop would be Moreshwar at Moregaon which is about 70 kms from Theur at about 30 kms from Main Solapur Road.
From Moreshwar to Siddhivinayak at Siddhatek is about 90 kms and its 33 kms off the Main Solapur Road. Siddhatek used to have access problems before but now a bridge has come up on the river leading to it and therefore its better accessible.
From Siddhatek come back to Pune and overnight at Pune or Ranjangaon.
Pune / Ranjangaon take route via Chakan. From Chakan, Narayangaon is about 50 kms and from there Lenyadri and Ozhar are both about 15 kms. So First head for Vighneshwar at Ozhar.
