Offering much-needed solitude and some peace and quiet, on the weekend of Holi every place is a crowded mess.
We decided to be away from the crowd this time around.
Our Campsite at the Bhandardara Lake is one such place. Tranquil and Quiet.
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.
