Gazing at the magnificent Bhimashankar's walls is reason enough to go on the Bhimashankar trek.

The trek is a favorite among fellow trekkers and is a much-visited site by pilgrims in India. The breathtaking trail is sure to mesmerize any visitor. The Bhimashankar temple is located 50 kilometers northwest of Khed near Pune in the heart of the Western Ghats. The temple sits on a plateau that towers 850 meters over the surrounding countryside. The formidable rocky sides of this towering plateau are known as Bhimashankar's walls.
