    We had a great time at the Bhimashankar Trek. The trekking was quite good and interesting. It was awesome. We had a really lovely time here. It was so worth every penny spent. The trek trails, the surroundings, the backdrop were all just WOW! It was completely worth every penny spent. I personally want to visit here again. The trek was well organized too; thus enhancing the whole trek experience. Thinking back there are no negative experiences at all. It was perfectly a great and a nice experience. The rates were also not that costly and it was definitely worth the time and money we spent on this vacation. I am so recommending this to everyone out there.

    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.

    We had a good trekking experience here in Lonavala. Pune and Lonavala are places that can be viewed in a couple of days. While we planned for a long vacation here, we chose to have a beautiful planned itinerary which involved this trek, and we are super glad that we took it. Regarding the trek, it was a great experience.

    The trekking experience was fine. The trek was organized in a great manner. The food, stay, and the travel were perfect. Thanks to the organizers. However, the trek was quite difficult and tiring. Without ample trekking experience, this trek is quite hard for anyone to take. It was a nice vacation.
