Pachmarhi - Introduction
Pachmarhi is known as the Queen of Satpuras. Occupying the highest point in Madhya Pradesh, it is an offbeat hilly retreat with pristine wilderness and more or less untouched terrains. Deep gorges, dense forests, streams, cascading waterfalls and groves of sal and bamboo add to Pachmarhi's natural beauty. It was the capital of the erstwhile Central Provinces and till today, a part of the town is an army cantonment. Discovered by a British Captain in 1857, Pachmarhi also has nostalgic remains of colonial architecture.
Panchmarhi is a pulsating hill resort in the central state of India, Madhya Pradesh. Panchmarhi is far and away from the madding crowds. The hill resort is the perfect place to holiday in the lap of nature. The hill resort derives its name from the five Pandav caves it is home to.
