To the east of Karjat and in the juxtapose to the Rajmachi lies this trek with thrilling rock patch. Get down at Karjat and then catch a bus for base village Sandshi (~ 20 km, 1st bus at around 4.30 am). A simple climb of about 2 1/2 hours will take you to a great col. Getting down of col and turning right will offer you a final rock patch. Half an hour rock patch will take you directly into the caves and Bhairoba temple

Rock patch More than anything else, the utmost precaution needed is while negotiating the rock patch. A bit of here and there, and you could be down in the valley. However, you take enough care and you will enjoy this thrill……cent percent!

Sight Seeing
Rock patch Nothing really special here to see. However a spacious cave with ample water is really a surprise. One can combine a nearby trek to Dhak fort along with this. http://deepabhi.tripod.com/dhakbahiri.html
