Mumbai - Goa Highway. The NH 17 passes through hills, forests, rivers, rivulets, and streams, generally flowing westwards towards Arabian sea. Most of region has typical scene like coconut trees dotted all along with paddy fields and arecanut gardens. 

The road is uneven, bumps, curves, steep rises and narrow paths in between hillocks are found all over this highway. As this region experiences heavy rainfall, potholes are present occasionally. 

Even though language spoken varies along the highway, food of the people along the NH17 has some common ingredients like Coconut, Chilli, Pepper, Coconut oil, Fish etc. The region has higher literacy rate as compared to other regions of India. The building of National Highway 17 has led to rapid development of towns and cities along the highway.

It seems you really enjoyed a lot on your trip from Ratnagiri to Chiplun. I've been to Ratnagiri and it's a beautiful destination to explore. The hilltop Ratangiri Fort is a massive U-shaped structure surrounded by sea on all the three sides. Apart from it, there are various places to visit in Ratnagiri.
