Are you tired of visiting crowded waterfalls and fighting for a spot to take a photo? Look no further than Bhilar Waterfalls in Panchgani, Maharashtra. This seasonal waterfall may only be fed by monsoons to winters, but it’s worth the wait.
Sure, it’s 248 kms from Mumbai, but the peace, calm, and tranquility of this hidden gem make it worth the journey. Plus, no entry fee means more money for snacks and souvenirs.
Now, don’t get too excited. It’s not exactly a showstopper, but that’s what makes it special. You can enjoy the waterfall while driving by and even take a few snaps for the ‘instagram. Just be patient and wait for the clouds to pass for a momentary glimpse.
And if you do decide to stop and explore, you’ll find numerous peaceful and picturesque picnic spots with lush vegetation to keep you company. Feeling adventurous? Try rappelling or find some trekking trails nearby.
Pro tip: the best time to visit is during peak monsoon, when the full force of the waterfall is flowing down the mountain. Just make sure to bring a camera with decent zooming capacities, because unlike Lingmala waterfall, Bhilar waterfall is quite far. But trust us, the background scene is worth the extra effort. The entire hills covered in a lush green blanket with clouds descending on them, giving it a misty look. The flowing winds are nice and cool in this region, making it the ultimate place for some R&R.
So, what are you waiting for? Skip the crowds and head to Bhilar Waterfalls for a peaceful and serene experience.
