Are you a nature lover? Then Bhimashankar trek is an apt trekking spot for you. Bhimashankar Trek route is full of pristine, beautiful, and scenic views as it paves its way into the Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary. Located in the laps of Western Ghats, it proves to be a mesmerizing and thrilling trekking spot surrounded by a shawl of greenery. It’s also a complete combo of mountains with ample waterfalls, Meadows, forests, caves, fog, Rocky patches, and a ladder route, which is the cherry on the cake.

If you are a photographer, then this trek might add some of the best wildlife photographs to your profile as it is the home to the Giant Indian Squirrels. A famous Jyotirlinga temple is located amidst the forest. So, what are you waiting for? Just put on your trekking shoes, take your camera, and set out for an expedition

Who should attend?

HikerWolf Bhimashankar trek is limited to people up to the age of 35 years. Travellers need to be within the age limit on the date of the trip departure to be eligible to join. We strictly follow this age criterion, and can not make any exceptions. 

We feel that a narrow age group leads to better experiences for our travellers when they visit a destination and the whole trip experience is more fun since people are on the same wavelength. Plus, it is always great when people make friends and keep in touch later

  • As we reach Neral, we will proceed to the base village- Khandas by local transportation
  • Before reaching Khandas we will take a halt at a Hotel to have our Brunch
  • As we reach Khandas, We would have an introduction and also an instruction session and start ascending towards Bhimashankar by the “Ladder route.”
  • Because there are many waterfalls and small streams of water en route, we will have lots of fun playing and chilling in the water
  • We will reach halfway to Bhimashankar and take a halt here for the night in the house of local villagers.
  • We will have delicious hot Maharashtrian Evening Snack and Dinner, spend time having bonfires, games and stories, and having a perfect night out.

  • Early morning Post breakfast we will start ascending again to reach the top of Bhimashankar, we will visit the Great “Jyotirlinga Temple” and the surrounding. (Note: we will visit the temple only if it is permissible)
  • After resting for some we will start descending via the “Ganesh Ghat” route to reach the base village.
  • We will again have mouth-watering Maharashtrian lunch in the house of local villagers en route.

Hikerwolf has become a character of a lot of travel journeys and one thing that we’re sure of is that we deliver happiness. With each trip and adventure, we’ve seen shining smiles, and an overdose of laughter packed with wistful memories. We based our foundation in 2016, and since then we have been spreading the warmth of happiness and bringing people closer to the outer lasting friendships via group tours. Hikerwolf organizes group tours, corporate trips, treks, camping events, college industrial visits, and other adventure, and travel events. How we got here Weekend trips and restaurant hoppings with his group of friends were a regular part of our Founder Smit Desai’s life during his college days. His bond with his friends was very strong, so much so that they believed that they would travel the world together. But destiny had some other plans and just like that, as they got out of college to venture into the next phase of life, everybody’s priorities started to change. New jobs, new placements, and a new set of people: a corporate lifestyle did not promise the happiness and bondings that their college buddies could provide. Although they tried catching up with their old buddies over the weekends, owing to their busy lifestyle, things didn’t quite get executed as they would have planned. While others could have sensed loneliness. Smit saw a business opportunity in this. He empathized with many others who most likely go through similar episodes and emotions in their lives. He decided to make a travel company where people could meet, make bonds, and travel as if they are travelling with a group of their old friends. The idea behind HikerWolf was born, but the journey toward the execution was not easy. Smit started and closed a few small travel ventures in 2012 before he finally decided to go big with his dream project HikerWolf in 2016. And that’s how Hikerwolf happened. Hikerwolf stirred from the same idea of bringing people together, spreading happiness, and making memories with strangers who end up becoming your friend. Our idea of spreading happiness is not only restricted to our travel ventures, we love doing the same wherever we go. Hikerwolf structures its journeys in ways that can uplift and empower the local communities across remote locations and thus make an attempt to spread happiness in their lives. So if you join us, you know that you are in for something that goes beyond travelling. Today, as Hikerwolf has evolved as a team that has a common goal as a company, we hope to instill our values through our best-curated trips and spread friendships and happiness throughout the world.
