2. On Day 1 we will visit Gupt Bhimashankar only if we reach top on time and finish lunch by 5.00 pm or else we will have to skip the same. Also Gupt Bhimashankar has a stream crossing, which can be done only if the flow of river is normal and will have to skip if it rains heavily.

3. Lunch on both days will be at around 4 pm or later which is a little late, so carry some snacks. Also there are few stalls in between you can have maggi and some packed snacks are available at mid point of the trek.

4. Nagfani Point is the highest point of Bhimashnakar region, but if it is covered in fog, we will not get to see any view. So we will visit Nagfani Point only if the weather is not foggy. Alternatively we can visit Hanuman and Kalbhairav Temple at base of Nagfani Point. We can do either one of them, can not cover both to be able to manage the schudule.

Overview : 

Bhimashankar is one of the best monsoon treks in Maharashtra. It has so much to offer, countless water streams and waterfalls, thrill of ladder route, the atmosphere of Jyotirling temple in misty weather, views of ganesh ghat route and some delicious food at the top. This trek is ideal for those who have done few treks before as this one requires good amount of endurance as we need to cover long distance on both days to cover all the places mentioned above. This is a must do trek in monsoon and has to be one of the best in monsoon.
