Tala Village in Raigad District of Maharashtra.

Tala Village is around 16 KM away from Ghosala base village for Ghosalgad fort. Directions to reach are tagged on google maps.

By the time we reached Tala Village, the time was around 730 PM. The village has shops on either side of the road, selling fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and chicken broilers for meat lovers, there were sweet shops, clothiers and  footwear shops too. It was like a mini market. There is BOI branch too.

The village also houses a petrol pump and motor repairs shops. The petrol rate is Rs.2 higher than the price in Mumbai.

There were many tum tum here. There is also a small ST bus depot here. Buses ply to Roha from here. No buses go to Murud. We were amazed to hear that buses ply to Mumbai too from here. Time table of the bus depot attached. The time table is subject to change.

There is also a Sulabh Sauchalaya in Tala Village, it is next to the tum tum stand, from the outside it looks shabby but the toilets are clean within. Urinal free and stool is Rs.5. Rates subject to change.
Now we had to find a place to stay for the night, we learnt from the locals, that there is just one hotel in Tala. MTDC hotel (Shinde Plaza) located on the outskirts of Tala Village. The rooms were not that great, they quoted a price of Rs.1000 for Non AC and Rs.1700 for AC rooms. The rooms have hot water facility and western toilet. One cannot make choices as it is the only hotel. We managed to get a room here. We did try negotiating but were informed no negotiation.

Beer is available near MTDC hotel. Though we didn't have Beer, this is FYI.

We had Indian Chinese cuisine for dinner and it was finger licking good.
