Live The Farmville Life At This Peaceful Farm Stay In Maharashtra


    Nestled in the foothills of Western Ghats at Khokurle, Gaganbawda, is Palmnest Farm, a true experience of what village life would be like.

    With active farms to see and experience, lush green scenery for surroundings and exotic birds often paying a visit here, this affordable farm stay makes for an ideal getaway if you’re looking to reconnect with nature and breathe in clean oxygen without traveling too far away from the city.

    What Makes It Awesome

    Set beside the Kumbhi River, Palmnest Farmstay is your rural escape that also acquaints you with the rural life. With basic amenities {what you need > what you want} in place, this farm stay offers a lot to do. You can tour the oil palm farm to see how sugarcane, rice, ragi, wheat and other regional crops are handled. You can spot rare species of birds, play around in the shallow waters of the river, enjoy a bullock cart ride {think Shah Rukh Khan from Swades} and finally enjoy the sunset.

    The property offers home-cooked vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals with a regional touch. They also have some indoor games like table tennis, carrom, and chess which will make sure you aren’t getting bored.

    Palmnest Farmstay is located in Gaganbawda, about 430 km (8 hours of driving time, approximately) from Mumbai. You can obviously cab it or turn this into a road trip with your homies, but you can also choose to hop on a train from Dadar or CST and enjoy the scenic route that the train takes {trust us, just do it for the gram}.


    While here, don't miss out exploring the neighbourhood. You can visit the Kumbhi Dam lake which is just 10 km away, Padavera caves 6 km away, and a proper sunset point at Karul ghat 12 km away.
