So, hurry up and register yourself to run in the Heaven called Pachmarhi!!!!!
Situated at 1100 m, Pachmarhi, popularly known as ‘Satpura ki Rani’ (Queen of Satpura), sits beautifully, embellished by nature and history, amidst the Satpura range. Legend says the Pandava brothers visited Pachmarhi during their exile.
This beautiful region in the hills, was discovered by Captain James Forsyth in 1857. This most popular hill station of Madhya Pradesh is a treasure with ancient caves of the Buddhist era residing in harmony with serene waterfalls.
Pachmarhi is sure to make you feel calm, the way you felt when you put your bare feet on the garden grass for the first time, as a child.
Its many waterfalls include Apsara Vihar, with its calm pool, and soaring, single-drop Silver Fall nearby. The Bee Fall tumbles over a jagged rock face to the northwest. Leopards and Indian bison live in Satpura National Park. The ancient Pandav Caves are a group of 5 dwellings cut out of sandstone on a hill.
The Jata Shankar cave houses a Hindu shrine, while hillside cave shelters such as Harper’s Cave contain wall paintings. The Handi Khoh viewpoint overlooks a dramatic, forested gorge with craggy cliffs. To the north, Bison Lodge was constructed by British army Captain James Forsyth when he explored the area in the 1800s. It now contains a museum with displays on local natural history. Priyadarshini Point (Forsyth Point) offers views over a vast, tree-covered valley and its peaks. A trail leads up to the high summit of Dhupgarh lookout, to the northwest.
Come and experience the Heavens in Pachmarhi…..
Run in one of the most beautiful environments in India…..
