Pachmarhi Tourist Attractions
So you are planning for a holiday tour at Pachmarhi, one of my best places for my holiday tours. so I would like to introduce you with some of the main Tourist Spots at Pachmarhi, where everyone must visit...
These are only the main places to tour, there are several other places at Pachmarhi. But these places are some of my best places at Pachmarhi.
So Let us Begin...
Tip : While most of the spots are within 5-6 km, the best way of getting around is to hire a jeep (Gypsy). Gypsy can be hired through open market or hotel manages have links with Gypsy operators. If somebody wishes to visit tourist points using his own vehicle then also it is fine.

1. Apsara Vihar
This place is also known as "Fairy Pool". It is easily accessible from Jai Stambh, this is an ideal picnic spot for everyone also childrens, since the pool is shallow, not so deep, deepening only towards the base of the fall. My First Picnic Spot at Pachmarhi.
