Pachmarhi - The Destination

one of the many waterfalls at Panchmari

Pachmarhi is a pulsating hill resort in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Far and away from the crowd of tourists, the hill resort is the perfect place to holiday in the lap of nature. The name Pachmarhi itself is derived from Panch- Marhi (five caves) believed to be the abode of the Pandava brothers of the 'Mahabharata' fame, for sometime during their exile.

At an altitude of 3,555 feet, the natural beauty of Pachmarhi has remained   unexploited .  Geographically   Pachmarhi   is  a   group  of

waterfalls. Apart from the ancient temples and buildings, this place is known for its natural beauty.
Complementing the magnificence of nature are the works of man; Pachmarhi is also an archaeological treasure trove. In cave shelters in the Mahadeo Hills is an astonishing richness in rock paintings. Most of these have been placed in the period 500-800 AD, but the earliest paintings are an estimated 10,000 years old.

The valley which is home to tribal Gonds and Korkus, has a maze of forest tracks perfect for pleasant treks. The national park at Pachmarhi has dense forests and is home to the gaur, leopard, bear, bison and other wild animals. The place has a number of interesting tourist spots located at a short distance from each other. Green shades embrace the mountains, and everywhere you can hear the gentle murmur of flowing water. Bridle paths lead into tranquil forest glades, groves of wild bamboo and jamun, dense sal forests and delicate bamboo thickets.


Though Pachmarhi is not as imposing as the other hill stations of the Himalayas, yet it carries a charm of its own which is unique to this place.

History of Pachmarhi

The saucer shaped valley of Pachmarhi, was discovered by Captain James Forsyth of the Bengal Lancers in 1857, and was developed as a sanatorium for the British troops. The point where he first sighted the area was named after him as Forsyth Point but later renamed as Priyadarshini Point. The valley with its not too cold but pleasant weather served as the summer capital of the central provinces during the British regime. The Victorian churches, bungalows and cemeteries left behind bring back memories of the colonial past.
