Offering much-needed solitude and some peace and quiet, our campsite in Bhandardara is far away, perfectly hidden from the crowds and the general chaos.
Tranquil and Quiet. By the Lake Shore. Beside a Campfire. Surrounded by good company. And added with fun board and card games! Sounds like a god plan, no?
Bhandardara is situated close to Igatpuri in the Western Sahyadris. The village is located in the Ahmednagar district of the state of Maharashtra, about 185 kilometers from Mumbai.
Bhandardara sits by the Pravara River, and is a blend of natural beauty, waterfalls, mountains and greenery.
