Khandala & Lonavala Sightseeing & Stay

I have planned a Khandala & Mumbai trip in Jan. I am commuting from Delhi and have designed my trip in this way - 4 nights at Mumbai & 1 night at Khandala.

I have heard lot about Lonavala also but still don’t know much.

Please guide me – Where should I stay – Khandala or Lovavala ? How far is Lonavala from Khandala ? Can I cover both on a single day? Which hill station out of 2 is better if I can’t cover both in 1 day & have to choose one?

Thanks guys in advance for help !!!

I find both Khandala and Lonavala disappointing, I don't know about other Mumbai folks.. too crowded, too many tourists...make a day trip to Karla Caves, have a nice climb up the hill, have lunch in Lonavala and return same day to Mumbai.

Thanks for valueabel advise. I am travelling with wife and 3 years kid. So, probally climbing hills at Karla caves may be Hectic.

Can you please help me by providing information about local sight seeing (major tourist attractions) about Khandala & Lonavala ? Is it possible to cover both in same day or they are far from each other ? Which one should I opt if is it not possible to cover both - which is more beautiful ?
