Pandavkada falls

This waterfall is said to have derived its name from the Pandavas who had once visited the place and taken baths below the falls when they were exiled in the forest as per the Hindu traditional myths. There is a huge tunnel from where the Pandavas come and that is why it is known as Pandav Kada. Though the trek to this waterfall is something like a trek to heaven where the city meets the soul, it is quite dangerous to trek here.   

The places that are mentioned above have somehow lost their stature under the fancy shopping hubs and entertainment parks. However, these are some of the best places you could visit in this city to have a cherishing holiday experience.
