Camping at Bhandardara

Bhandardara was on our "to visit places" list since a long time. Finally, in October we decided to go camping at Bhandardara organised by getsetcamp.

We reached there in the afternoon with a rain welcoming us. Everything around was so beautiful. The lush green beauty, Arthur lake and the tents - a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. We enjoyed some quality time while boating the Arthur lake in the evening. We explored the markets of bhandardara and on the way, caught a glimpse of Umbrella Falls.

The next best part was candle lit evening snacks - Maggi and Chai. At night we enjoyed the campfire along with some old melodies, creating a beautiful memory to cherish for a lifetime.

The next morning we were greeted with the village style breakfast - kande pohe. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip to bhandardara.

Serenity and unspoiled nature at its best. Great deals and complete family recreation holidays exper

A must visit place. We stayed at Yash Resorts! Believe me it's a complete unwind from the crazy City hustle. To team up they have great packages including all meals. They literally feed you and pamper you full time. Staff are courteous and helpful. Rooms are big and tastefully simply decorated. Sightseeing is quite limited, but nature lovers would love to see the big dam and tall green mountains. Overall a wonderful location teamed up with great pricing.

Bhandardara Overview

Bhandardara, the town located in Maharashtra in Ahemdnagar District, lies approximately 185 km from the state capital of Mumbai. It is a holiday resort located by the River Pravara. The place is known for its natural beauty and its quiet and soothing environments.

It attracts a lot of tourists every year because of its eco-tourism opportunities. Two of the important tourist attractions of the place are the Bhandardara Lake and the Randha Waterfalls.

According to Hindu Mythology, it was at Bhandardara that Sage Agasti prayed to the Lord, without eating anything for a year. On being pleased with his devotion, God gave Agasti a stream of the Ganga River which is the present day River Pravara.

The nearest town to Bhandardara is Nashik, which is accessible by road. Although this village resort does not have a railway station, it is well connected to other cities in Maharashtra by road. The village is surrounded by Mount Kalsubai, which is the highest peak of the state. It provides scope for trekking and mountaineering.

There are also the forts of Ratangad and Harishchandragad Fort to see here. The Ratangad Fort is around 200 years old and from the fort, views of Bhandardara are available. The Harishchandragad Fort was built during the 6th century, when the Kalchuri Dynasty ruled.

The small town of Bhandardara is evidence of the engineering skills of ancient times in the form of Wilson Dam. The dam was built in 1910, and is the largest earthen dam of the country. There is also the Arthur Lake and the Umbrella Falls close by which are scenic spots in this village.

But what really attracts tourists to Bhandardara is its greenery, its wide open spaces and its natural beauty. The air of Bhandardara is unpolluted and there has been very little commercialisation here, which differentiates it from the other resorts.

The adventure opportunities, the idyllic surroundings and the opportunity to explore nature attract tourists to Bhandardara.
