One Day Bhimashankar Trek
Bhimashankar which is situated at the end of the Sahyadri range is equally famous among trekkers and pilgrims. It is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva in India. The stone carved temple at around 3290 feet high and the feeling of being lost in wilderness has made Bhimashankar a major trekking destination.
A wide variety of flora and fauna is found in the dense forest of Bhimashankar which is also a source of river Bhima. Bhimashnakar is also a reserved sanctuary in the state of Maharashtra.
The route passes through deep wild rain-forest, head-high bushes, lost-and-found trails, small rivulets, green meadows and hidden waterfalls
Bhimashankar is home to one of the 12 Jyotirlinga Temples of Lord Shiva.
One can see several shades of green in Monsoon
