Bhandardara in Winter (October - February)

Beginning from October - February, the winter season is the most advisable time for a visit to Bhandardara. The temperatures here fall to nearly 10 degrees C. This cosy weather woos tourists from nearby cities (Mumbai and Pune) for spending a day or two amidst lush greenery and peaceful surroundings. The cold winter breeze adds on to the enchantment of the place. The days become shorter in winter, so you might not get an ample amount of sunlight to explore the place thoroughly in one day. This is also the time when migratory birds cross this place, making a spectacular sight for bird watchers. Carry light woollen clothes to keep yourself warm.
Visit Bhandardara for its scenic beauty. Lush green hills against a background of dazzling lake and a clear blue sky make for the perfect sight, with the waterfalls adding to its charm.

Bhandardara in Summer (March - June)

Summers are not much appealing in Bhandardara. The temperatures go up to 35 degrees C. Although nights are cooler, the hot and sticky afternoons make it too uncomfortable to head out and enjoy the pure and pristine beauty of the hill. Summers start from March and continue till May, after which light showers help cool down the place. Summer is considered an offseason. So this is the perfect time for the bargain hunters and backpackers travelling on a tight budget. This is also the best time to plan a trek and camp with your squad. Mount Kalsubai, the highest peak in Maharashtra is a challenging trekking option if you are up for it.
