Top Attractions


Bhandardara Lake:

Popularly known as Lake Arthur Hill, Bhandardara Lake was developed by the dammed-up waters of the River Pravara. An important tourist attraction, the lake is situated amidst the lush green forest. The site occupies a significant position in the religious history of India since this is considered to be the spot where Shri Agasti Rishi meditated at a stretch for a whole year. The 34 km long lake formed in the year 1910 serves as a reservoir for Wilson Dam. The lake is rather deep in some areas. Rivulets emanating from the lake rush down almost 45 m and form the Randha Falls. The falls are used for hydro-electric power generation.
