Trek to Bahiri caves is famous for its rock climbing section and is considered one of the toughest trek of Maharashtra just because of this rock patch.
But we will try to make it as easy as possible, with appropriate use of ropes, securing safety of each and every participant over the patch.
The plans for the trek will be as follows :
Though it’s a one day trek, the scorching sun in this dry season heats the rocks and makes it difficult to climb after 11 am itself. So to avoid getting burnt by heated rocks we have decided to hike the cave early in the morning and for the same reason we need to reach the base one night prior to the trek.
We will be starting from Mumbai on Saturday afternoon, Our Mates from Pune will join us at Kamshet or Lonavala
Will reach jambhavli the base village by night.
Will have our dinner in the Village, rest for an hour, and start for a night trek till the base of the cave.
Early morning wake up, breakfast, will start towards the patch.(this will prove us very helpful, as only one person can climb the patch at once. and no other goup reaches )
We will climb the patch and will be back by 12pm to the base of the cave.
From here we will return to Jambhavli.
Have lunch and will start our return journey to Mumbai(Karjat) / Pune(Kamshet).
