Embark on a famous trekking trip to witness the beauty of Dhak Bahiri caves. This is yet another thrilling but toughest trek in Maharashtra.
Dhak Bahiri Trek is one of the most adventurous treks near Pune. You can experience the thrill of a jungle trek and some rock climbing as well. Traversing the 70° gradient rock patch near the cave is bound to give chills to even the most experienced trekkers.
The accessible location of Dhak Bahiri caves makes it one of the most challenging treks but don’t let that dim your enthusiasm. In fact, if you’ve been looking to level up, this is a great opportunity to test your grit.
Dhak Bahiri Caves is located in the middle of a cliff of Dhak fort. Our trek route begins from Jambhivali village. From Jambhivali we have to ascent through the fairly dense jungle up to a steep gully. From here the real challenge begins. We have to traverse a rock patch of around 70 degrees gradient. After the rock patch, we have to climb using the support of a wooden log which sways preciously.
There are water cisterns in the caves. The water is ice cold in every season and used for cooking purposes by the villagers. The cave is an impromptu temple of Lord Bahiri where sacrifices are carried out on regular basis.
