Places to See in Panchgani

Panchgani offers cool climate all year long. Developed by British superintendent John Chesson as a place to retire for the then rulers, Panchgani was developed from an unrecognized piece of virgin earth into a commercial place for human habitation. Yet, it has still not lost its natural touch and there are various tracts of trek-able land in and around Panchgani. It is bordered by five hills and there were five villages on the outskirts of this beautiful piece of earth.
Its altitude is lesser than Mahabaleshwar, but it enjoys the same cool breeze and the low humidity is extremely pleasant, thus leaving you feeling fresh even after hours of excursions along Panchgani’s enchanting roads.
Apart from the sights, Panchgani offers various berry farms including Strawberry, Mulberry, Raspberry etc.; farms providing honey, jelly, jam as well as a number of cottage industries that provide handicrafts of cane, bamboo and other local products.
