Nawegaon Bandh

Nawegaon, Vidarbha's most popular forest resort, is the ultimate adventure spot. It is said to have been built by Kolu Patel Kholi in the beginning of the 18 th century. There's a picturesque lake set in the midst of hill ranges with watchtowers that enable you to view wildlife.

Make sure you visit the deer park, the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, the three beautiful gardens and the children's park. Almost 60% of the bird species found in Maharashtra have been recorded in Nawegaon. Every winter, huge flocks of migratory ducks visit the lake. Sign up for jungle safari and you may see a lion, leopard, sloth bear, gaur, sambar, chital or a languor.

Also stay in the unique tree-top retreat. And for more excitement, hire a power or sail boat at the lake.
