Satpura National Park

Reviewed By Ian P - Faversham, United Kingdom

I thought this park was a really enjoyable experience. We had knowledgeable guides who were willing to spend time looking for what we wanted. Not like so of the parks that are only interested in tigers.

Dhoopgarh

Reviewed By AmitabhTrehan - Gurgaon, Haryana, India

Dhoopgarh is basically a viewpoint from atop a hill. Drive from Panchmarhi takes you through the thick forest of Satpura and some really breathtaking views enroute. A collection of photos of places to visit around panchmari is assembled in a small museum atop the viewpoint. No food or drinks available so make sure u carry some if u plan to spend some time there esp waiting for the sunset.

Bee Falls

Reviewed By Arijit_26 - India

You will need to hire a local vehicle to visit Bee Falls as it is inside the Satpura Tiger Reserve and permit is required to reach the place. Normally the local tour vehicles will take you as a day trip, along with Pandav caves, Reechgarh and Dhhopgarh. The entry point is about 100 mts walk from the parking and if you are not upto it to climb down the 300 odd steps, you can view the falls from here as well. To go down to the falls, you got to climb about 300 steps and is not too tough for moderately fit individual. May not be recommended if you have knee problems. Proper steps are there though are steep at some places. View from the bottom is great and many prefer to have a bath ! Strongly recommend visiting it when at Panchmarhi.

Jata Shankar

Reviewed By Sumithran - Navi Mumbai, India

It is located close to the Pachmarhi market and bus station. From the entrance, you have to walk and climb down many steps to reach the cave at the bottom. The temple is located inside the cave, where you may have to crouch at some place. There is also a small stream and lake.

Pandav Caves

These five caves gave the town Pachmarhi it's name.

Reviewed By surobhideb - Bengaluru, India

From here one can have a very nice view of the entire Pachmarhi area. There is a garden at the bottom with beautifully arranged flora and fauna. Though names Pandav caves , in reality it doesn't relate to any Pandava. It was a place where some Buddhist devotees stayed long back as the local folklore goes by. There are 4-5 caves and one can notice the drainage systems etc in here. Whoever stayed here must have been a big fan of great views.

Apsara Vihar

Reviewed By kakaanirban - Kolkata

Can be seen along with Rajat Prapat. A very scenic place, even though the main fall is a small one.. however the surrounding Forests lends a very picturesque ambience. The pool at the base of the fall is more than 15 feet deep, so only take a bath if you are a good swimmer.
