Encircled by the sedate Satpura Ranges, Pachmarhi is the only hill station in entire Central India. It is located at an altitude of 3500 ft above sea level and at a distance of 200 km from the capital city, Bhopal. Pachamarhi derives its name from the five Pandava Caves located here. According to a legend, these caves served as a shelter to the five Pandava brothers during their exile. Popularly known as “Satpura ki Rani”, this unexplored hill resort was discovered by Captain James Forsyth of the British Army in 1857. It became a sanatorium for British troops in the Central Provinces of India.
