Khandas to Bhimashankar via Sidhi Ghat: 7.5 kms.

On reaching Karjat, we will pack up lunch and take a local vehicle to Khandas, the base of Bhimashankar.

We take the left from the T junction. The initial 20 minutes after the T-junction is an easy walk. We reach a stream in about 20 minutes. Once we cross the stream, the trail ascnds for about 40 minutes, till we reach the first ladder. Once we climb the first ladder, we quickly reach the next one. There is a cave after the second ladder where we can relax for a while. This spot offers excellent views of the valley below. Soon after we cross ladder 3, there is a patch with huge rocks. We need to be extremely careful while traversing this section. We cross a protruding rock to reach the final rock patch, which leads to the top of the waterfall. We proceed along a trail going north which later turns east, cutting through paddy fields to ultimately merge with the Ganesh Ghat trail at the Chahacha Aamba. This is the halfway point. We take a much needed rest here and head east from the Chahacha Aamba by the broad trail that zigzags over steep terrain to enter the dense forest of Bhimashankar. A 45 minute traverse brings us to the enclosure of Hanuman pond. We turn left and walk along the fence to cross a parking lot and enter Bhimashankar temple premises across the tar road.

Trek to Gupt Bhimashankar
It is a 2 km down hill trek from the temple in thick forest. It said to be the origin of the River Bhima. A small waterfall gushes over a 'lingam' carved out of stone to mark the exact spot. A tiny brass 'Nandi' guards the spot.

Nagphani Tok (point) / Serpent's hood
This is the highest and the best point in the Bhimashankar area. From the car parking area walk on the cart track to Hanuman temple (1 km. - 20mins). At the entrance of the temple there is a board indicating the direction to Nagphani. There are a few houses around the temple. From the temple it is another 20mins uphill trek. This place has derived its name from the fact that it looks like the hood of a Cobra. Hence the name Nagphani. (Nag = Snake i.e. Cobra; Phani = Hood). From the point one gets a panoramic view of Padar Killa down below, and the hills and forts of the Matheran range in the background. Walk uphill to the right of the point and one gets a fascinating view of the Bhimashankar temple area and Siddhagad fort (982m - 3223ft) in the background.

Descent via Ganesh Ghat: 10.5 kms
Retrace your steps all the way to the mid way point. From the tea shop take the route going towards Ganesh Ghat. The dense forest will lead to a waterfall in half an hour’s time from the merging point. Proceed west from the waterfall to reach the Ganesh temple. Continue descending by the rocky trail to reach the tar road. We take our vehicle back to Karjat from here.

"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !

Here from the past few trek experiences organised by The Great Escape are GREAT 👍 Professionally a well organised and friendly team, you guys (Reetu & Jamila) have built a great team (on & off the field) Almost this team is very good in all stages like the accommodation, food, travel, guidance & instant decision making. They value the time & money spent by their customers. This unique experience – it is much and seriously appreciated. Continue delivering the same 👏 Hope to join more trekking/trips in future with The Great Escape 😊 Best wishes to grow big & bigger 👍

I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
