Dhak Bahiri Trek is one of the most adventurous treks near Pune. You can experience the thrill of a jungle trek and some rock climbing as well. Traversing the 70 degrees’ gradient rock patch near the cave is bound to give chills to even most experienced trekkers.
The accessible location of Dhak Bahiri caves makes it one of the most challenging trek but don’t let that dim your enthusiasm. In fact, if you’ve been looking to level up, this is a great opportunity to test your grit.
Dhak Bahiri Caves is located in the middle of a cliff of Dhak fort. Our trek route begins from Jambhivali village. From Jambhivali we have to ascent through fairly dense jungle up to a steep gully. From here the real challenge begins. We have to traverse a rock patch of around 70 degrees’ gradient. After the rock patch we have to climb using the support of a wooden log which sways preciously. After and only after you climb the log can you reach the safety of the cave.
There is a water hole in the cave. The water is ice cold in every season and used for cooking purpose by the villagers. The cave is an impromptu temple of Lord Bahiri where sacrifices are carried out on regular basis.
