We had a great time at the Bhimashankar Trek. The trekking was quite good and interesting. It was awesome. We had a really lovely time here. It was so worth every penny spent. The trek trails, the surroundings, the backdrop were all just WOW! It was completely worth every penny spent. I personally want to visit here again. The trek was well organized too; thus enhancing the whole trek experience. Thinking back there are no negative experiences at all. It was perfectly a great and a nice experience. The rates were also not that costly and it was definitely worth the time and money we spent on this vacation. I am so recommending this to everyone out there.

We had a good trekking experience here in Lonavala. Pune and Lonavala are places that can be viewed in a couple of days. While we planned for a long vacation here, we chose to have a beautiful planned itinerary which involved this trek, and we are super glad that we took it. Regarding the trek, it was a great experience.

Bhimashankar Trek In Maharashtra is one of its kind of a special trek that is such a country side trek. One can’t experience such a trek generally in other trek trails. Lonavala is by itself a beauty and this trek adds more grace to it. I had a great time at this trek. I personally loved the trek trails so much that I am planning to do this trek again sometime. As a trekker, you will experience bliss as the trek takes you back to the good old country trek experience. As a nature lover I had a great time with the surroundings.

I booked the Ashtavinayak trip from Pune and we visited all the eight temples of Lord Ganesh and the temples were renovated very well and there is also a lake Shree Vighnahar Ganpati Temple where boating is available.
It is one of the best trips of my life. If you love adventurous and trekking place then you will love to visit Lonavala and Khandala, The views are brilliant and the vibe nice and Lonavala lake is very beautiful lake, surrounded by mountain. The scenery is very heart warming, I instantly fall in love with the place.

Nice place with a well-mannered guide, I booked it from Thrillophilia for me and my sister, the trek went super fantastic and we had a good company there with us. The only problem was waking us early but as u reach the Bhimashankar, you will feel alive. Must try.
