Bhimashankar Monsoon Trek

The Bhimashankar trek is one of the most popular treks in Maharashtra, and is every trekker's dream trek. It's a long, challenging route that takes you over a massive mountain with waterfalls cascading down from slopes. There is a famous Shiva temple at the top, which is one of the Jyotirlingas from the 12 Jyotirlingas in India.


Located at a soaring height of 3500 feet, the Bhimashankar trek combines a visit to the famous Bhimashankar temple. You will begin your journey from the Karjat station, from where you will be transported to the Khandas Village. In the monsoon, this trek is lush green, and rain water gushes down the path you're trekking along.
