One of the most scenic yet unexplored and virgin hill stations in the vicinity of the Golden Triangle Mumbai – Pune – Nashik .
Barely 2.5 hours drive from Thane really makes you wonder what has kept people away from it for so long to enjoy with.
Bhandardara has all the trappings for the perfect short getaway for a weekend.
Bhandardara is nestled in the Sahyadri ranges, offering a unique combination of pristine beauty and rejuvenating serenity.
Bhandardara is a virgin beauty in either sense as we can see no commercialization here, which is often seen and experienced at places like Mahabaleshwar, Matheran and Lonawala. The place is no doubt a spot to be enjoyed and savoured in every season for 24 * 7 * 365.
Only 170 km away from Mumbai and barely 65 km away from Nashik, Bhandardara has always been more oftenly discussed but comparatively less frequently visited by the picnickers probable reason being lack of resorts so far.
It may come as surprise (shock to Bhandardara lovers!!!) that every 8 out of 10 Mumbaikrs have never visited it despite of knowing it’s true potential as a picnic spot.
Winters are chilly and Monsoons are heavy.
Summers witness high temperatures but only if you are out in the sun.
Under shade and within confines of the room it is pleasant and evenings are surprisingly cool, warranting the need for a light blanket in the night as cool breeze blows from the vast water catchment nearby.
