Chikhaldara

Gavilgad Fort

Showcasing Its Serene Lakes And Cascading Waterfalls


Welcome to the only hill station in the Vidarbha region. Located in Amaravati district, Chikhaldara is 763 km from Mumbai and about 100 km from the Amravati city. It is visited for its exotic wildlife, astounding viewpoints, beautiful lakes and crystal clear waterfalls. As the legend goes, the hill station is named after the demon Keechaka.
