The Varandha ghat cuts the Sahyadri range to join Bhor to Mahad and is one of the routes between Konkan and Pune. It is 108 kilometres (67 mi) from Pune. This ghat stretches almost 10 kilometres (6.2 mi). The route from Niradevghar Dam up to the start of the ghat has many twists and turns and skirts the backwaters of the dam.
