|Sightseeing In Igatpuri & Bhandardara: |
Igatpuri boasts of some breathtaking valleys and waterfalls such as the Bhatsa River Valley at the fag end of the Thal Ghat and lush ravines are a part of the view. The renowned Camel valley, so called, because of its shape, catches the eye. One could even possibly stumble upon many waterfalls and creeks that fall over 1000 feet onto the base of the valley. Those who go there also pay their respects to the goddess of the Ghats at the Ghantadevi Mandir. A little further from Ghantadevi, a rough road leading to the railway line begins. Across the railway line, while climbing down, falling one below the other, are five waterfalls that form a breathtaking sight.
Another such valley is the Konkankada valley and its falls and the Randha falls not so far away which is best enjoyed in the monsoon season when in full force.
|Tringalwadi Fort can be accessed through a small path on the mountain adjoining Igatpuri and trekking a bit further would take one straight to the Tringalwadi lake and the Talegaon lake. The Wilson Dam mentioned earlier is built on the Pravara river close by and from the dam one can see the highest peak of that range Mount Kalsubai.|
|The Trimbakeshwar Temple, another highlight of this region is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of the world. The extraordinary feature of the Jyotirlinga located here is that it has three faces embodying Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu & Lord Mahesh (Shiva).

Godavari River originates on the Bramhagiri mountain and meets the sea near Rajamundry.|
