Here’s all about Pachmarhi, MP’s only hill station
Pachmarhi is the best place to visit, famous for its waterfalls and caves. Pachmarhi is the only hill station and the highest point in Madhya Pradesh. Pachmarhi is also often known as “Satpura ki Rani” or the “Queen of the Chain of Satpura”. Located 1,067 meters above sea level, the picturesque town is part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, home to leopards and bison
There is an interesting Mahabharata story in Pachmarhi, five sandstone cut caves at the top of the hill are said to be where the Pandavas stayed in Pachmarhi during their exile, making it a popular spot among religious tourists. Being at a lofty height and surrounded by mesmerizing Satpuras forests with streams and waterfalls, Pachmarhi is an ideal weekend gateway from nearby cities of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Since the city was discovered and developed in modern times by Captain James Forsyth of the British Army, it has been home to charming churches built in colonial-style architecture.
