Panchmarhi, the peaceful hill resort amidst Satpura ranges is noted for its natural beauty and salubrious climate. It is said to be named after the ancient rock cut aves, where the five Pandava brothers, the heroes of Mahabharata, are said to have taken refuge. However, the lovely hills station was discovered and developed by cap Forsyth, in 1857. Pachmarhi offers, park like woods and glades for quiet walks, shady bridle paths that ribbon through the wooed landscape and lead to breathtaking views at the edge of the plateau, a profusion of streams and waterfalls that collect into cool pools for bathing, the challenge of rugged hills for rock climbing. Another special attraction is the splendour of the red sandstone scarp that reflects fantastic shade of mauve and violet at dusk. The tranquil hill station also provides comfortable inexpensive accommodation and facilities that include a golf course, a recreation centre with a skating rink and school of Oriental music.
