Igatpuri Tailormade Holidays

Igatpuri is surrounded by the highest peaks in Sahyaadri the Western Ghats, most of which are forts built during the Satavahana dynasty. Surrounded by surging waterfalls, lush forests and tranquil lakes, this hill station is heavenly for trekkers and hikers. Camel Valley is perhaps the most popular trekking location, especially during the monsoon season when the area comes alive with swelling creeks and flowing cascades. Its natural beauty lends particularly well to film and most Bollywood-movie outdoor scenes, especially songs, are shot in the Igatpuri region.

Tringalwadi Lake is one of the prettiest in the area and offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding valley. Sitting above the lake at an elevation of 3,000 feet above sea level, the magnificent Tringalwadi Fort is well worth a visit with a marvelous temple dedicated to lord Hanuman and striking views of the mountain ranges and Tringalwadi sitting below.

Besides its scenic settings, Igatpuri is also known for its lovely temples and the popular dish vada pav, a vegetarian fast food dish consisting of spicy potato deep fried in a gram flour batter.

Igatpuri is also a place of significance in terms of Vipassana meditation. First taught in the 6th century BC it was re-introduced in the 1960s and as such, Igatpuri is home to the International Centre for Vipassana Meditation. Courses offer a complete introduction to this age-old traditional form of meditation and is complemented by the gorgeous and peaceful surroundings.
