An idyllic retreat or a jewel of Maharashtra – Panchgani can be called any or both of these. Located in the Satara district of Maharashtra, Panchgani might not be amongst the most visited hill stations of India but that exactly is its greatest boon. Lesser number of people mean that you get an opportunity to destress and relax in an extremely calm surrounding.
Roaming around on foot, a bicycle and horseback are few activities which you will love to do in this quiet hill station. As for sightseeing, you can have a look at the British buildings, Parsis houses. Sydney Point and Table’s land offer spectacular views of the surroundings. Also, since Mahabaleshwar is just twenty five minutes away, a visit to it is almost inevitable.
Reaching Panchgani is very easy from both Pune and Mumbai. It is actually a weekend getaway for stressed people of both places.
