Igatpuri is still protected from the crazy modernization of cities. It still maintains its charm and tranquillity. Igatpuri is a one of a kind experience. The fresh air and the magical surroundings will make you forget all your worries! Monsoon is the best season to visit this place when the entire locale is covered with lush greenery. The months of November to March are also a good time to visit Igatpuri. You will definitely come back here again.

Igatpuri is a lovely hill station nestled in the lap of the Sahyadris. Everything about this place is very charmingly beautiful, the rugged terrain, the cascades, and the woody forest, which makes you feel one with nature. The waterfalls are majestic and the natural beauty is almost too good to be true.
