Gangapur Dam Backwaters

The Camping Marvel

The fact that the Gangapur dam happens to be the longest earth fill dam in Asia is, by itself, reason enough for it to be right at the top of the must-visit list of places in Nashik. This giant barrier sits on the Godavari and is just 10 kms away from the main city. Lush greenery encircles it, invites the nature lover to set up camp and marvel at the sunset, gaze at the moonrise or just spend a relaxing time with friends and family.

What to do

The view of the Gangapur Dam backwaters is mesmerizing. It seems too beautiful to be true.
