Come and Enjoy the Monsoons With Pathfinders..!!

We have Organised a Day Picnic to experience the monsoons and get drenched in a beautiful waterfall near Bhimashankar surrounded by Nature….

Bhimashankar a Natural Paradise,Holy place & a home of our State animal Shekharu (Giant Squirrel) ………

Bhimashankar is the temple containing one of the five jyotirlingas found in Maharashtra. Nana Fadnis, an eminent statesman of the Peshwa days, constructed the beautiful Shiva Temple at Bhimashankar. The wooden entrance of the temple is beautifully carved. On Mahashivratri day, over 20,000 devotees attend a special religious fair. Bhimashankar is endowed with beautiful scenery and an all-around vibrant atmosphere.
Besides the Shiva Temple and the dense forest surrounding it, you can also visit Bombay Point, Gupta Bhimashankar: the origin of Bhima River, Hanuman Tank and Nagphani Point.

Bhimashankar is a wildlife sanctuary reserved for Giant Squirrel. This is state animal for Maharashtra. We will be walking in the Bhimashankar wilderness watching everything.

We can come across uncommon wild flowers, variety of birds, some colourful butterflies and other insects. Some Frogs or Snakes also might cross our path. While we walk our team will be telling you the information about these wild beauties
