Bhandardara Tourism & Travel Guide

Bhandardara is a hill statiomerely 185 km from the busy city of Mumbai, making it a very popular weekend destination. Perhaps one of the few towns that offers eco-tourism opportunities, Bhandardara is home to a number of waterfalls, lakes and temples. Situated by the Pravara river, this laid back town offers a quiet, peaceful respite from the chaos of the cities. The lakes here include the 34 km long Lake Arthur Hill, which receives water from Randha Falls that come down from over 45 meters. It is also used as a major source of generating hydro power. The lake is surrounded by dense forests and holds religious importance. Umbrella Falls situated near the old Wilson Dam is a beautiful tourist spot and is certainly a must visit if you'd like to spend your afternoon amidst nature. There are quite a few food stalls around so you will have enough choices for a good lunch! The 1,200 year old temple, which features Lord Shiva's Amruteshwar Temple, is surrounded by mountains and has beautiful rock carvings on the main shrine. Do also visit the Ratangad Fort, which is located at a close distance to the old Lord Shiva Temple. Mount Kalsubai, considered to be the highest peak in Maharashtra is also located here and makes for a great trekking destination for experienced trekkers. In fact, Bhandardara has many opportunities for small treks and hikes.
