Trek - Bhorgiri to Bhimashankar



The trek from Bhorgiri to Bhimashankar is part of an ancient trade route – Khandas – Bhimashankar – Bhorgiri. The goods from Kalyan port were brought on Deccan plateau via this route. The distance is about 8 kms and takes around 3 hours.
Most of the trek route is covered with thick forests which are rich with bio diversity. The forests also happen to be the home of the state animal of Maharashtra – the Giant Squirrels – Shekru. The forests become more active during monsoons and many waterfalls decorate the route. While trekking one feels like they are almost walking in the clouds.
Gupta Bhimashankar is a milestone of this trek and it is said that Bhima River originates here. The river ordinates the Shivalinga at Gupta Bhimashankar which beautifully roars down from here towards Bhorgiri. As an annual monsoon ritual, Zenith Odysseys plans to tread this route on 29 September 2019. See you then!
