Devkund trek

If the thought of trekking through lush green forests, to a beautiful waterfall and swimming in a blue lagoon sounds good to you, then you must visit the sparkling Devkund waterfall. It is located deep within the forests of the Western Ghats inside the Tamhini Ghat region.

About Devkund waterfall

Devkund waterfall is an undiscovered paradise that gives you a complete experience of the beauty of the Western Ghats. It lies close to the quaint village of Bhira in Raigad district, Maharashtra, approximately 150 Kms from Mumbai. A popular landmark is the Bhira Dam or Mulshi Dam, a hydroelectric power generating dam.

The Devkund waterfall is a confluence of three waterfalls and is said to be the origin of the mighty Kundalika river. The waterfall cascades down from an overhanging rock into a turquoise natural pool below.

On this jungle trail you will trek through rain-soaked wilderness, through tall trees that hold the early morning mist, before you come upon a waterfall, gushing harmoniously at the end of a short trail. The region is noted for its rich biodiversity, tropical flora and fauna, and clear lakes and streams.

About the Devkund trek

The Devkund trek is an ideal place for photography, for swimming in the pool, or for exploring the area around. It takes about 2 hours to trek from the base village and through the forest to reach Devkund waterfalls. You will be able to observe the life of the locals at Bhira village and take in how they live. Its not a difficult trek but the trail does get a bit slippery during the monsoon.

When to go for the Devkund trek

The best season to visit Devkund is in the monsoon, which is from June to the end of September as the forests are teeming with life and the waterfall is in full spate. However avoid going when the rains are very heavy. Try to head out for the Devkund trek early in the morning so you can see the village waking up and enjoy the solitude in the forest. It’s a simply beautiful experience with the cocks crowing and the smell of tea wafting through the village. You will catch the mist in the forest before it lifts and be able to hear all the birds and the sounds of the jungle. Most importantly, you will be able to enjoy the lagoon on your own before other trekkers visit.
