Away from the hustle bustle of city life, lies one of the less publicized hill stations of Maharashtra, Panchgani. It is also known as the “Mecca of Maharashtra”. This hill station stands 38 meters below Mahabaleshwar, at an altitude of 1334 meters. A 21-kilometer drive from Mahabaleshwar to Panchgani is sketched by meandering flow of Krishna River and the landscape of the coastal plains.

A unique geographical feature of this hill station is that it is shaped by flattening volcanic rocks. Panchgani is named so because of the five hills that surround it. The enchanting beauty of Panchgani can be enjoyed by taking a pony ride around the town. The old buildings of this region have the charm of British Raj. Panchgani also houses as many as 20 boarding schools. The immaculate beauty of this hill resort and fresh air acts as the most magical doctor, which is said to have healed many TB patients. The presence of valleys and steep slopes makes it suitable for trekking too.
