Igatpuri boasts of some breathtaking valleys such as the Bhatsa River Valley at the fag end of the Thal Ghat, where lush ravines are a part of the view. The renowned Camel Valley, also catches the eye.
One could even possibly stumble upon many waterfalls & creeks that fall over 1000 feet onto the base of the valley. Those who go there also pay their respects to the goddess of the Ghats at the Ghantadevi Mandir. A little further from Ghantadevi, a rough road leading to the railway line begins, across which, are five intersecting waterfalls that form a breathtaking sight.
Another such valley is the Konkankada Valley & its falls & the Randha Falls– which is best enjoyed at the peak of the monsoon season.
Tringalwadi Fort can be accessed through a small path on the mountain adjoining Igatpuri & trekking a bit further would take one straight to the Tringalwadi Lake & the Talegaon Lake.
The Trimbakeshwar Temple, another highlight of this region, is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of the world. The extraordinary feature of the Jyotirlinga located here is that it has three faces embodying Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu & Lord Mahesh (Shiva). The temple is known for its appealing architecture and intricate sculptures, and it sits at the foothills of a mountain called Brahmagiri. The Godavari River originates on the Bramhagiri mountain & meets the sea near Rajamundry.
