  • One of the best treks I have had recently. Now is a good time to see it. Best when you start trekking early at 6am. It is quite challenging but definitely worth trying out.
  • A great place to trek. It's the monument of our rich heritage. Scenic views, and most awesome sunrise view.
  • Guys this place is actually heaven for trekkers & nature lover.I would give it more than 100 star if possible but here is only 5🤗. But pls remember you gonna cover 4500ft. (1400m) altitude so carry sufficient water & snacks(I.e. chocolate,biscuit, sprouts,fruit,juice,butter milk,dry fruits etc)and you can got water bottle only at village situated at the base of track. !! NO WATER bottle and snacks available in between the trek but there is a drinkable water pond at 500m below the top.Avoid trek in Summer's.Winter or Monsoon must be preferable.Also best place for night camping, cooking & bone fire if you can carry the stuff but again remember at last stage of trekking there are few points where even carry your own self is not an easy task...But don't afraid it's gonna be a everlasting experience
  • Best trek for overnight camping during any seasons except monsoon.. The views from top are breath taking.. A perfect trek for beginners..
  • Beautiful ! It's was an amazing experience during rain.it takes couple of hours to get here. The trek is moderate but during rainy season it's get difficult. Had an amazing experience 😉.

Where to stay in Pune

South-east of the main train station sit most of the accommodations on offer in Pune, with the choice largely revolving around standard hotels featuring small pools and restaurants. You can find some more luxurious options in the more spread-out areas to the north of the city center, and along the rivers that flow through town. Hostels and guesthouses provide budget-friendly options, with the bulk located near the university accommodation districts, and the side streets of the older parts of town.
