The charm of Maharashtra increases manifold in the monsoon months because of the rains that bring out the lush greenery and waterfalls in the region. Bhandardara which is a hill station near Nashik is one of the most scenic places you can go to in the monsoon. Not just a paradise for nature lovers, Bhandardara is also apt for trekkers for the many trekking routes it offers. Kalsubai range which is the highest peak in Maharashtra is also via Bhandardara. The Wilson Dam, Arthur Lake and several waterfalls make for a mesmerizing backdrop that you just can’t afford to miss. If you still aren’t convinced, here are 10 photos that will do the trick.
