Why Wai

People crowd at Mahabaleshwar Panchgani. Nothing wrong. Another point worth visiting is Wai on way to said crowd puller hill stations. For religious minded Wai is full of temples and for sightseers passing through Wai to Dhom is a treasure to eyes. Fields with variety of vegetables and other crops. Thereafter Dhom Dam. Absolutely no crowd. Enjoy the scenic beauty. The beauty travellers enjoy from hill top right at your feet.
