It's claimed to be the only coffee growing region in the state. It's even associated with the epic and historic tale - Mahabharata (It was the place where Bheema was killed). And it's a beautiful paradise surrounded by lush greenery, exotic species, waterfalls and mountains.
Can you guess this hill station?
We're talking about a quaint hill station in the Amaravati district of Maharashtra called Chikhaldara. From outdoor activities to chilling in the camps, or just exploring the landscapes of Chikhaldara – you can do it all.
When there, you can either manage your own stay or opt to camp in the outdoors. You'll find resorts offering regular camps or you can even opt for camps in the misty landscapes so you’ll feel like you’re walking on the clouds.
Things To Do There: Opt for adventurous sports like zip lining, valley crossing or rappelling, waterfall trails, enjoy food prepared by locals. You can also visit the Melghat Tiger Reserve, a must for wildlife enthusiasts if you have enough time.
How To Get There: You can board a train from Mumbai or Pune. While the region does't have any railway station, the nearest station is Badnera and Akola. From there it's approximately 80 kms. We'd say avoid driving it all the way there, as it's a good 15-hour drive.
Stay: The MTDC Mozari Point is the most popular in the area.
