Etched on Satpura range, the hills of Pachmarhi are mystically related to lord Shiva by means of legends passed down over generations. Located at an altitude of 1,067 meters, Pachmarhi is different from anything you’ll experience in Madhya Pradesh and is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway. Located at one of the hilly region in the state, the place is pretty popular with nature lovers, spiritual seekers, and sportspersons. Captain James Forsyth, a British Army Officer, came here in 1857 and the town interested him much. Caves-shrines of Shiva, dense forests, and steep-sided valleys located here offer a rich experience to the escapist travellers. Pack your bags to enjoy the feeling of calm that the magnificent nature gives. While exploring the extraordinary diversity of Madhya Pradesh, don’t miss out on this majestic landscape.
Pachmarhi, is also known as 'Satpura ki Rani' (Queen of Satpura). It is located in the Satpura range beautifully, embellished by nature and history. It was discovered by Captain James Forsyth in 1857 and is amongst the most popular hill stations in central India. It is beleived that the five Pandava brothers stayed in five caves during their exile here, thus the name Pach (five), Marhi (caves).
