After a heavy monsoon and the quick slip of the short autumn, winter is almost knocking on the doors and now I am sharing my monsoon story of Bhandardara. Although I can’t feel the monsoon vibes anymore, I hope to bring back some monsoon memories through this post. All thanks to my procrastination, almost two seasons passed by. So with no further delay, let’s visit Bhandardara this winter to revive the lost monsoon charm.
Bhandardara village is known as the monsoon destination with numerous waterfalls and pretty green hills. It is also famed for the highest mountain peak in Maharashtra – Kalsubai peak (5400 ft). It was a sunny day in the monsoon followed by heavy evening showers. This gave us an excellent opportunity to use the day to move around.
We visited Bhandardara while on our trip to Igatpuri. Another post on Igatpuri is coming soon, hopefully, I will not delay that any further. This post will be a pictorial one as some stories are meant to be written with images than with words.
Bhandardara is one such place, lush and rich with vegetation. The abundant monsoon rains this year probably gave a super boost to the waterfalls and hence added to the beauty of the surrounding.
Bhandardara is located by the river Pravara on which the Wilson Dam is built. Arthur lake is the reservoir of this dam.
I rest my words now and let the pictures do their job.
