Endowed with innumerous natural resources and a panoramic beauty, Khandala is paradise for the adventure enthusiasts. Its cool and congenial atmosphere throughout the year makes it immensely popular and a perfectly apt spot for outdoor activities. The verdant hills all around also exude the aroma of a natural elegance and allure the lovers of nature with a promise of a peaceful retreat in the lap of nature.
The history of Khandala is still under the canopy of anonymity. It is assumed that the legendary leader of Maharashtra, namely Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had ruled an area very near to Khandala. In the later years, it was supposed to have been taken over by the courageous Peshwas and finally the British took control over the land. All the modernizations that are part of Khandala today are a result of the colonial rule of the British Empire.
