User Experience

To the South of the Bhandardaradam, lies Pabargad. To the East is a small village so distict in itself that one would defi nitely prefer a stay here. To the North-East of the village lies a part of the dam, the Randha fall which is a miracle in itself. After the rains, till November, the view of the Randha fall is simply unforgettable. The climb of Pabargad seems easy at the beginning but the diffi culty level goes on rising. There is a dense coverage of Karvi trees here. Walking towards the top of the hillock amidst the flowers and butterfl ies leaves an unforgettable experience in one's mind. The cool waters of Bhandardara refl ecting the entire mountain range is visible from here. Experiencing this is an achievement in itself.
