Located by the scintillating waters of the Godavari, Nashik is located in north-western Maharashtra and is a much sought after spiritual tourist spot. Known for its vast landscape dotted with archaic forts, majestic temples, hazy hills and cascading waterfalls, Nashik attracts a number of tourists throughout the year. Nasik is the third largest city in the state and was host to the grand triennial Kumbh Mela in 2015. As an interesting parallel, Nashik is also known as the Wine Capital of India, as it has acres of vineyards where tours are conducted regularly. Looks like a visit to Nashik gets you the best of both worlds!
