Sightseeing

  The Famous Dam :
 

Wilson Dam is a lovely site for picnicking. Built in 1910 on the Pravara river, the dam is almost 150 metres above sea level and attracts crowds from all over the country. The cool placid waters of the river run by for miles. The Umbrella Falla are also in the vicinity. Unfortunately, these pictureque falls are enjoyed only during the monsoons when the water level in the lake is considerably high.

Streamlets from the lake cascade down 45 metres as the Randha Falls - an ideal place to relax and enjoy nature. Besides being a scenic spot, these falls are also used for hydro-power generation.

   Mount Kalsubai :
 

Overlooking Bhandardara, you can see Mt. Kalsubai, the highest peak(1,646 metres) in the Sahyadri range. During the Maratha rule, this peak point served as the watchtower. It is an ideal place for those who enjoy trekking, as are the surrounding hills. There is a small temple at the top, with an old well in its backyard. Legand has it that the level of well water never drop below 3 feet.

   Agasti Rishi Ashram :
 

Situated on the bank of the Pravara River, this legendary dwelling finds a place in the scripts of Ramayana. It is said that lord Ram, Laxman and Sita visited Agasti Rishi. The Rishi had then given ord Ram a miraculous arrow which was used to kill the devil, Ravana, in order to rescue Sita. The ashram, although under renovation, manages to attrach crowds from all over.

 

 Ratangadh :

 

The fort lies only a few kilometres away from the MTDC resort. It was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and was one of his favorites. The fort has a breathtaking view and provides sample ground for trekkers.

   Amriteshwar :
 

This temple dates back to 1100 AD. Built in a distinct Hemandpanti style, the intricately carved temple still stands proud. Other places worth visiting are Konkan Kada, a small garden and a swimming tank.
