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 with trek mates this difficulty will be tackled with appropriate use of ropes, securing safety of each and every participant over the patch.
Though it’s a one day trek, the scorching sun in this dry season heats the rocks and makes it difficult to climb by 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,
Will reach jambhavli the base village by night.
Will stay in the village enjoy camp fire, star gazing and will rest for few hours in the village.
Early morning we will wake up, and after breakfast will start the trek.
We will reach the base of the caves by 8 am,
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.
