On a sleepy Saturday morning, me and a friend decided to head out to a sleepy hill, for a lazy camping trip instead of just staying in bed. Bhandardhara is a little Hamlet located in the Western ghats of Maharashtra, in the Ahmednagar district. Even if this trip was planned with the sole purpose of relaxing and doing absolutely nothing, the returns were quite good considering the efforts we put in. The tent stay by the lake, the amazing local food, the continuous monsoon showers and the resulting beauty of Bhandardhara made it very special for both of us.
The lush green landscapes were unimaginable. Not only was Bhandardhara beautiful and strikingly green, but the roads leading towards it were nothing short of breathtaking. We travelled by a private vehicle from Pune and the whole route made not only our destination but also our journey memorable. If you enjoy a good road trip, I would recommend, Pune to Bhandardhara by road, the condition of the roads is good, a mix of small winding routes through villages, well maintained highways and the ghats.
