Trekking in the Holy Adobe of Shiva: Bhimshankar

1. Reaching Bhimshankar

The best way to reach the trekking hotspot is to take a train from Mumbai to Karjat. Once there, you can hire the famous tumtum to reach Khandas village, which is almost 40 kilometers away from Bhimshankar. From here on, the travelers can opt to trek by either Shidi or the Ganesh Ghat route. The best time to visit this place id from August to February.

3. Ganesh Ghat Route

Almost 4 kilometers from Khandas Village, one can reach this route my taking a right from the main bridge. This one is a longer route, yet less challenging than Shidi route. You will reach the Ganesha Temple after an hour’s trek. This is also the base of Padar Killa. Trekking further for a few hours on the Padar Killa route will take you to the Bhimshankar plateau.

4. The Shidi Route

To get on this route, you have to take a left from the Khandas Village’s main bridge. The steep natural path makes this trek shorter than the former but even more dangerous. After the lofty staircases, both the routes merge.

There are no hotels or resort in Bhimshakar. The travels can accommodate in either the Dharamshala or temporary huts. No matter how hard the trek is, reaching the holy adobe of Shiva is a thrilling experience in itself.
