On the other hand, the town is also a pioneer of all things ‘nature!’ Known very well for Arthur Lake and Bhatsa River Valley, Igatpuri is also home to the Kalsubai Peak and the Tringalwadi Fort. Furthermore, there are various other small lakes and valleys at a short distance from the main town that fill up in the rainy season. During the monsoons, these scenic spots are the real treats for anybody that wishes to experience natural beauty firsthand. The weather in no way creates a hassle to go around as the roads are well maintained and prepared for the rains.
