Bhandardhara is a hill station flanked by many known and un-known hills. The peaks of Ratangad, Ajoba , Kalsubai stands tall adorning the landscape here. Kalsubai is incidentally the tallest peak in Maharashtra. Bhandardhara is well fed by the waters of the Pravara River on which rests the Wilson Dam. The Wilson dam was built in 1910 and having completed a century still stands strong. Wilson dam's reservoir is known as Arthur Lake. Off monsoons one can indulge in boat rides in the lake. Bhandardhara is much sought in monsoon for its captivating beauty. The dam water released makes for two gigantic waterfalls, one, the "Umbrella falls" and second unnamed waterfall from the dam spillway. The Randha falls is very well known and much visited.
