Brief Description

The Devkund Waterfall Trek is a perfect weekend trek for the city dwellers of Pune and Mumbai. It is a day trek with the most rewarding end. The trail of the forest is mostly covered in forest and the waterfall is located deep inside it. Said to be the confluence of three waterfalls, the Devkund Waterfall is the origin of the Kundalika River. The Bhira Dam is located on the outskirts of this forest and is a power generation unit by TATA. Taking you through dense lush forest and crisscrossing numerous streams, the trail to Devkund Waterfalls is a natural gem. One needs to navigate slippery and tricky rocks en route to the Waterfalls. However, the trek can be done by anyone, from beginners to experienced hikers as the trail is mostly flat. If you are looking for a refreshing weekend away from the city noise and pollution, then the Devkund Waterfall trek is your ultimate choice. Considered as a popular getaway destination, make sure to reach this Waterfall as early as possible to beat the crowds. This trek can be easily done on your own without the need to go through any tour agency.



Itinerary

Day 1

Bhira Village to Devkund Waterfalls and back

Coming from Mumbai and Pune gather at the base village of the trek, Bhira. From here, you start your journey. The first few kilometers are along the Bhira dam. The trail then enters a forest and we walk right to the middle of the forest. There are any meadows and dried up water streams along the way. You reach a small pond with clear waters within an hour. This pond has the mighty Devkund Waterfall right above them. The water crashes into the pool from around 80 ft. Stop at the pool and enjoy the fruits of our toil. After having lunch here, start to retrace your steps and get back to the base village Bhira within an hour or two. From here you can either go to Mumbai or Pune easily by cab and take trains for your onward journey.
