INFORMATION ABOUT BHANDARDARA
Amidst the dense forest, lies one of the most splendid lakes of the country, Arthur Lake. It is formed by the waters of the Pravara River. Bhandardara is well known for the Wilson Dam which was built in 1910 on the Pravara River and is almost 492 ft above sea level. The Umbrella Falls are also in the vicinity. Besides being a scenic spot and offering some breathtaking views this water body is also used for hydro-electric power generation.
The backwaters of the Wilson Dam reflect the gorgeous image of Mount Kalsubai, the highest peak (5,400 ft) of the Sahyadri ranges in Maharashtra . During the Maratha rule, this peak point served as a watchtower. There is a small temple at the top, with an old well in its backyard. As per the legend it is believed that the water level of this well never drops below 3 ft.
