Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Chikhaldara has an abundance of wildlife, lakes, waterfalls, forts and the place is full of deep valleys. The only coffee growing place in Maharashtra.

What's Not So Great?

The place is full of nature so it is not much different for people already living in hilly areas. Not much to offer for people living in places like Himachal Pradesh or Uttarakhand.

For Whom?

The place is ideal for a family vacation. It is not a romantic getaway, but even couples can enjoy a short trip. It is a must visit for animal and nature lovers. People from Delhi or Rajasthan should visit this place for close interaction with flora and fauna.

- Keeping in mind that it is a forest area, wearing bright clothing is not recommended. Earthy/pastel shades are best suited and especially necessary for the wild-life Safari.
