Wait for the dam. It's the best piece of advice to anyone who’s yet to lay his/ her eyes on the Lavasa hill climb just outside Pune. The road starts with the Lap of Mutha, a serpentine stretch of goodness on the hill before the Temghar dam. Fast sweeping corners, no hairpins, a wide-enough road and not much traffic early in the day, the Lap of Mutha sets you up for the next hill.
