Best Season: Throughout The Year
Bhandardara is a holiday resort village on the western ghat of India.  It is located in the Ahmednagar district of the state of Maharashtra, about 185 kilometers from  Pune.
 
The literal meaning of Bhandardara is valley of treasures, here the elements of nature are in perfect harmony. Bhandardara is the perfect destination for a beautiful holiday. Its  sky-high mountains, roaring waterfalls and lush greenery throughout the year, attract tourists from all over. Bhandara is characterized by lush green paddy fields contrasting with the  bright blue skies above and the streams that crisscross the whole land.  When it rains, it feels like the  clouds have descended  from the sky to blanket the earth!
 
Bhandardara sits on the banks of the Pravara River. According to Hindu mythology, Shri Agasti Rishi meditated here for a year, surviving only on water and air, pleased with this display of devotion, God came down to Earth and blessed Shri Agasti Rishi with a stream of the Ganges river, which is now known as the Pravara River. There is also an ashram in the saint’s name.
 
Bhandardara has a lot to offer– From the highest mountain peak in Maharashtra, to one of the largest lakes and oldest dams in the country to the cascading and gushing waterfalls.

We came to Bhandara for a trek. Mt. Kalsubai trek is quite challenging but it was fun nevertheless. Bhandara is the base point for many other treks too.The best season to come here is the monsoon when everything is lush green and the weather is awesome!

Bhandardara has an easygoing and rustic charm. It is blessed with excellent weather throughout the year, which makes it a year-round holiday destination.Our stay in Bhandara was a pleasing experience. It is the perfect weekend getaway ans so close to Pune city. The waterfalls and lakes are simply spectacular.
