The Bhimashankar trek is a nature lover’s delight. It takes you into the heart of the Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary. While monsoon is the best time to do this trek, it can also be done in other seasons. The route is scenic and thrilling. Those accustomed to trekking can try the Shidi Ghat route. For beginners, we recommend the Ganesh Ghat route, which offers splendid views.
While in the jungle, you’ll have a variety of birds, langurs and spotted dear for company. If you’re lucky, you might even get to spot a ‘shekar’ or the Malabar Giant Squirrel.
The best part of the trek is the trail to Gupt Bhimashankar, located in the middle of a stream, underneath a rock.
