About Place

Test yourself by surrounded awe-inspiring beauty on a trek from Lonavala to Bhimashankar. The weather playing the perfect host, rest assured that this will be a memorable experience. Covering a distance of almost 72km, it is undoubtedly a favourite among trekkers who want to push the limits of their physical endurance.

Nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts can both rejoice in this experience which can test their endurance levels while enjoying the natural beauty and wilderness with different species of butterfly and flowers, waterfalls, mountains & plateau for 2 days, along with the delicious food made by the local villagers.

The Lonavala Bhimashankar Trek route passes through deep wild rain-forest, head-high bushes, lost-and-found trails, small water streams, remote tribal villages, eerie temples, green meadows, hidden waterfalls and a plateau of flowers with butterflies. Due to the remoteness of the Bhimashankar Wildlife sanctuary, there are a few tribal villages where life still revolves primarily around hunting, gathering, and subsistence agriculture. You explore the best features of the Sahyadri range on this trek.

The Bhima river originates from Bhimashankar hill and passes through the deepest part of the forest. It attracts abundant wildlife, as there is no other water source around. Lonavala to Bhimashankar is arguably the best back-country trek in the Sahyadri range.

This trek lasts for 2 days and will give you the opportunity to experience the tribal village culture as you stay with the locals and taste their authentic cuisine.

Overall the trek is utterly satisfying! Har Har Mahadeo!
