Then Bhandardara is the place to head off to for a weekend break or even a mid-week outing. Camping under the open skies at Bhandardara is something that everyone must try at least once in their lifetime BhandardaraBhandardara is a beautiful yet less known hill station near Mumbai in the Sahyadri hill range.
