“Amazing Falls”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Water Fall is no doubt amazing and it makes a river of it flowing through the field across but the only drawback of the place is that it doesnt have decent crowd visiting this place. You need to figure out a proper time and day to visit this place and that would be when the crowd is not much but neither scanty too. Place is scenic and never go under the fall and the rocks keep falling along water so could be very dangerous. Another point of caution would be to have a better gripped shoes as the rocks you climb to get to the falls are very slippery. Its on only during monsoon 3 months at the most.

“Lush Green Beauty”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

It is impossible to believe that such a reclusive and green place is tucked away so close to Navi Mumbai. Drive ahead of Kharghar railway station and the entrance to Pandavkhada falls is right next to the Kharghar golf course. If you are taking an auto from the station, he will charge you Rs.50.
From the entrance, it is quite a hike to reach the falls. There are not many stalls selling eatables, so it is advisable to pack a small picnic snack and water. The place can be muddy and slushy during monsoons, so wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
Once you finish the hike midst greenery, you can reach the falls and also take a dip in the pond that it falls into.
Good place for a half a day outing.

“Seasonal Flavour”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The Pandavkada waterfall is visible only during the monsoons and that too when it rains heavily for some days at a stretch. Situated in the picturesque node of Kharghar in Navi Mumbai, this free flowing waterfall plunges down from a height of about 107 meters into a greenish pool. The lush green hills around add an attractive backdrop to the falls.As per folklore, the five pandavas of Mahabharat had visited this waterfall for a bath and hence the name Pandavkada. The waterfall is visible on your left once you reach the Kharghar golf course via Utsav Chowk.

This place is not maintained as a tourist destination. We spent some time trying to figure out a path to enter the plains which led to the falls. A part of this land in the foreground is occupied by the golf course which is fenced and no one other than the golfers and residents of the village near the waterfall are allowed to use the pathway through the golf course. Between the golf course and the new Kharghar Gurdwara further down the road, there is an opening in the boundary wall through which we could reach the plains which is covered with tall grasses and tiny flowers at this time of the year. To reach the waterfall, one needs to trek for about a kilometer through this plain land,cross a stream a couple of times and traverse rocky terrains.Often you are left to find your own pathway.The trek is easy, but meant only for those who are fit enough. The plains part of the trek can be covered in a two wheeler. But if you have a four wheeler, you will need to leave it at the parking lot outside Central Park on the opposite side of the main road.

There was a cool breeze blowing as we trekked through the soothing greenery.All vestiges of urban civilization receded at a distance and we gradually approached the strikingly beautiful plunge waterfall hurtling down from the green hills. After the trek, getting sprayed by tiny water droplets feels soothing. You can carry snacks for picnicking, but care not to litter the place.

Visit to the falls is not encouraged by the forest department due to some unfortunate deaths few years ago . Entering the pool at the base of the waterfall is not advisable. You are practically in the wilderness. This adds to the charm of the place, but it also means no help is available if anything untoward happens.

For me it proved to be lovely morning adventure to indulge my passion for photography. This beautiful place should be developed for tourists with proper facilities so that many more can enjoy its pristine beauty.
