The Best Things To Do in Pachmarhi

A 2-day trip is apt to enjoy the National Park and the wildlife of the city and to see the many caves, waterfalls, temples, pools and sunset points. Don’t forget to carry your camera to take photos of the the stunning views of Panchmarhi.

Start your stay by a refreshing visit to the Bee Fall and the Rajat Pratap (Silver falls) that are the highest waterfalls in the small town. A visit to Dhoopgarh- the highest peak in the Satpura range that lies in Madhya Pradesh, is a rare treat for hikers and is loved for the view during sunset.

The Handi Khoh- also called ‘The Suicide Point’ offers a stunning view of cliffs that meet at a deeply engraved valley. The Apsara Falls or ‘fairy pool’ is the ideal place to take a dip in the cool waters in Panchmarhi while a spiritual visit at the Jata-Shankar temple is sure to replenish your soul.

If you are in town during Mahashivratri, don’t miss the Chauragarh hill temple where devotees carry ‘trishul’ weighing 100 kilos and hike through the mountain to reach the top!

A visit to the Asthachal Cave Shelters and the Bharat Neer Cave Shelter to see the historic rock paintings, is one that no history lovers should miss.

Panchmarhi provides a map for Indian mythology. The Pandav Caves are believed to be the caves where the Pandavas namely Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva lived for 13 years during their exile. For a day trip, the small hill station's many lookout points offer mesmerizing view of the Satpura ranges. A half-day trip to the National Park as you come face to face with majestic animals like Tigers, Lions and Bison- makes the safari a ‘one of a kind’ experience. Don’t miss out on seeing the view from Rajendra Giri, where the first president of India would come often during his travels. The shopping pulse and nightlife of Panchmarhi dims down compared to the many attractions that surround it. However, the annual Pachmarhi Utsava in December is famous for shopping for locally-made handicrafts.
