Bhimashankar

This trekking hotspot is situated in the village of Bhavagiri. One of the twelve Jytotirlingas of Lord Shiva in India, Bhimashankar has always been a special place. Dense forests, lofty peaks and a plethora of animal life characterize this beautiful getaway. It is a modest yet graceful temple and it dates back to mid 18th century.


Gupt Bhimashankar

It is a 2kms. down hill trek from the temple in thick forest. The Bhima River which originates from the temple flows to this place, disappears and then suddenly originates further ahead. 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. 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.

 

































 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trek Via Khandas - Sidhi ghat

The route going to the left from the bridge goes to the village. The route to the left of the well in the village leads to the Shidi Ghat. This is one of the difficult routes to Bhimashankar. This route becomes very treacherous and slippery during the monsoon. There are three ladders in this route within the first two hours of climbing. One reaches a settlement after half an hour of the third ladder. This route is called "Sidhi" ghat because of ladder (Sidhi) placed on the routes.

Further ahead when you climb on, one come across a thatch. At this junction, the routes from the Ganesh Ghat and Shidi Ghat merge. Those yearning for a cup of tea or food can get their wish fulfilled here as there are many huts provideing food and tea in middle of trek route. A further 1 ½ hour trek takes us besides a pond. The road, which goes to the left from this pond, takes us to the temple.
