Welcome to Pachmarhi

The most popular tourist activity is touring a selection of places of interest, beauty spots and natural pools by 4WD (with a few shortish walks from parking places). It's also possible to reach some places by foot or bicycle.

Pachmarhi is also the gateway to Satpura Tiger Reserve, which has plenty of wildlife. Few people come here exclusively to go on safari but those who do are normally richly rewarded. Sight-seeing tours run into the reserve from Pachmarhi, but you'll see more wildlife on a jeep safari from Madhai, 84km northwest.

British army Captain James Forsyth came across Pachmarhi in 1857 and set up India’s first Forestry Department at Bison Lodge in 1862. Soon after, the British army set up regional headquarters here, starting an association with the military that remains today.
