Bhimashankar Trek In Maharashtra is one of its kind of a special trek that is such a country side trek. One can’t experience such a trek generally in other trek trails. Lonavala is by itself a beauty and this trek adds more grace to it. I had a great time at this trek. I personally loved the trek trails so much that I am planning to do this trek again sometime. As a trekker, you will experience bliss as the trek takes you back to the good old country trek experience. As a nature lover I had a great time with the surroundings.

I was looking for a trekking expedition along with my friends this summer when my friend from Bangalore suggested me this amazing trek. It was one of the best treks so far. I along with my 6 friends had the most amazing time of your life. Lohagad fort near Lonavala is known for its beauty and scenic views. I had the most amazing time of my life. This was my first time that I went on a trek. Everything was very well arranged for us. We also met another group who joined the trek with us. Once you reach the top of the fort you can see a hill that divides the basins of Indrayani and Pavna. The picturesque beauty of the place is something which you should definitely see. It was a moderate trek and since it was drizzling it was a bit slippery. Soak in the beauty and witness the strong and intact gates protecting the fort. Another interesting thing was that we had the friendliest guide accompanying us. He was keeping us entertained with all his funny jokes and stories of the fort and about the Peshawas. Everything was perfect for us but be a little bit cautious when you walk through the zig zag path. Feel the excitement existing in climbing up the hill which extends up to five kilometers from Malavli. The food was average, it was basically veg food. For the ones who are looking for an adventure for one day than this is the perfect trek for you. All together it was a great adventure for us.

Superb experience in Pune. Must try for all those who are seeking adventure in Pune. We were in Pune for a short vacation and had a free day. We contacted Absolute Scuba pune and were greeted by a team of professional Scuba divers. They explained to us the rules of diving safely and then took us for a breathtaking underwater experience. At first the experience was daunting but withing 5 minutes it became absolutely normal. We learnt how to breathe like a fish. We then began to understand the beauty of being underwater on scuba. We spent the next hour underwater doing all sorts of crazy fun things all under the supervision of the instructor. We absolutely loved it. thanks Absolute Scuba for an amazing diving experience. we will come back to you for more. Natasha

Bhor is an amazing spot near Pune for adventurous as well as fun loving folks. I have been to this place twice now. Once just for sightseeing and photography, and now recently for a camping experience. It was quite awesome. I had a great time. There are many aspects in this camp that will be exciting for all fun loving people out here. There is zip lining, which is nothing but a lovely adventure sport where one gets to slide on a zip line at more than 50 feet height. It was exciting. Then there is rope climbing, which is quite scary. Finally there were some relaxed and laid back board games and other group games to end the camp with. The camp fire activities were another add-on with the trip.
