Take NH4 Highway route. First go to Satara -> Umbraj. From Umbraj take right turn to patan gaon. Patan-malharpeth then go to Helwak -> Kumbharli Ghat – then go to Chiplun. From Chiplun If you want to go by short cut then go from Dangli Akhli road. You need to ask there How to reach Ganpatipule from Dangli Akhli road.
Dont go to Hathkambha take dangli akhali road that will save you 35 to 40 kilometers road.
