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.

Overview

About the Activity:

Situated in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra and covering an area of about 120km, Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary is fast emerging as a popular weekend getaway from Mumbai and Pune. The area around Bhimashankar is covered with thick dense jungle and is home to the endangered giant squirrels, this wildlife protected are boasts of rich flora and fauna and offers spectacular views of its lush green forests and the Sahyadri mountain range that surrounds the sanctuary. 

The place is yet to be fully discovered by the tourists and therefore still exudes a serene and rustic charm. Bhimashankar also attracts pilgrims and devotees to the sacred Jyotiralinga Temple located amidst the wilderness. Its nature trail is an easy short trek near Pune where you can soak in the natural wild beauty of the forest.

    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.

    It was a great and an amazing trek. I loved the whole trekking experience. We had such a nice and fun time there. We would like to visit here again soon. This time we only did the trek and didn’t explore Lonavala much as we were tired from the trek.

    We had an amazing trek here. We loved it totally. We were a huge gang of 10 trekkers. It was friends, cousins, their cousins, and stuff. When we planned for Lonavala trip, I suggested this trek, and I am glad that we all ended up liking it. The trek is quite challenging, but it isn’t stressful or tiring. After sometime, you will start enjoying the trek. Also, the trek trails are so poignant and so are the surroundings and the backdrop. The food was the major issue during the trek. Although Lonavala has some amazing food, it was not that great in the trek region. I would recommend this trek definitely to anyone.

    This is such a brilliant and interesting trek. We had such a lovely and enthralling experience. We loved the whole experience. We would love to do such treks often again. Speaking of the trek, the stay and food was quite good too. Also, Lonavala is pretty inexpensive, so even a week’s tour wouldn’t cost as high as 3 days trip will cost in other cities. This is a big plus point for budget travellers. Make this place in your travel wish list; you will not regret it.

    The trek was good. We were 4 friends; all of us being trek enthusiasts, we took this trek. We have about 1-3 years of average trek experience. Here is what we got to share about this trek. This trek was one of its kinds of trek. It was an interesting and a different experience from our other treks. The place adds charm to the trek. Lonavala is a beauty and not visiting it is a shame. That being said the trek was indeed too calm and interesting. Also, not to forget, the trek was quite fun too.
