    We're sorry but we don't have any departures at the moment..

A traverse that will blow your breath away. Through the heart of a pristine forest reserve, Ahupe to Bhimashankar and a descent through Bail Ghat will surely turn your soul. A climb up Ahupe Ghat is delight for all those to seek pure vertical challenge; up up and away! Once atop Ahupe Ghat walk along the edge of Western Ghats to reach Kondhval. We spend the night here before proceeding to Bhimashankar (a popular place of pilgrimage, precisely why we stop at the village before!).

From Bhimashankar, we take a rare route to descend through the thick forests. This route is called Bail (Bullock) Ghat, as during the Cattle Festival at Mhasa (near Murbad) in January, many villagers above the ghat, take this route with their live stock down. The route is dense with lots of trees. It traverses the west face of the Bhimashankar edge, before descending to the flat plains of the Konkan belt.

Brace for long walks, thick forests, steep ascents and descents.
