Kanher Dam

Kanher dam is situated in Kanher. Mahabaleshwar is 30 to 35 km away. You could see the dam from the Dund village plateau; Paabal the waterfall is the mail attraction for me in the village lots of green mountains calling you. I wish to build one hotel over there at Chikanwadi or at Ekiv this would be the greatest place to visit in winter. Government should take action to promote tourism there.
