  About Pachmarhi

Officially known as Pachmarhi Cantonment, Pachmarhi is a hill station located in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Situated at an altitude of 1067 feet, this hill station lies in the valley of the Satpura Range in Hoshangabad district. This saucer shaped hill station, which spreads over an area of 59.01 sq km, is fondly known as the 'Queen of Satpura Ranges'.

This land of splendid natural beauty was discovered in 1857 by Captain James Forsyth of the Bengal Lance. Soon it became a hill station and sanatorium for British troops in the Central Provinces of India. Pachmarhi owes its name to the Pandava Caves, wherein 'Panch' means five and 'marhi' means caves. In colloquial language, Pachmarhi is often pronounced as Panchmarhi or Pachmadhi.

Pachmarhi is under the administration of the Pachmarhi Cantonment Board, which serves the Indian Army. The region is inhabited by around 10,000 individuals, with most of them being part of the Indian Army. Club and golf course in Pachmarhi are few and are only for the usage of military personnel. Moreover, most of the civilian population lives alongside the lake.

Renowned as the summer capital of the central provinces during the British regime, Pachmarhi still has remnants of the colonial past. The Victorian churches, bungalows and cemeteries render colonial atmosphere in the town. The pristine hill station is surrounded by forest area, which has been added to the list of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves in May 2009. Tribes of the Gonds and the Korkus are the native inhabitants of the area.

Best time to visit this place is between October and June, when weather is pleasant and favourable for sightseeing.
