A real prize location. A hidden gem I had no idea about. Very few tourists, really scenic and beautiful locations, one of the best examples of the boundless beauty of the Konkan. I loved the numerous waterfalls, the running streams, the babbling brooks, the luxurious greenery, the abundant superfluous nature that soothes the soul. The place where we stayed was... More

I drove to Bhandaradara Dam with my wife from Mumbai. The drive via Igatpuri was breathtaking and we literally drove through the clouds. Best part of the drive was that the roads were awesome (except for a few bad stretches). You enter the Dam from one side (via Yash Resorts),where the reception was nice enough to hand us a free...
