Punekars have to pass along the Tamhini Ghat and make their way towards the Devkund waterfall, Please find the link for route from Pune to the Devkund waterfalls
My experience of exploring the virgin Devkund waterfall…
Starting from the base village, the trek till the Devkund waterfall takes approx two hours. I will suggest to start the trek early in the morning as it takes 2 hrs to complete the trek starting from Bhira village till the Devkund waterfall and approximately take one and half hour to return back.
It will be advised by me to wear good grip shoes and carry ready to eat food along with energy drinks and water on the trek. Know more to pack your bags during trek.
“Life is BETTER in Trekking Shoes”
Please take a strict note:
Please note non-veg food is not allowed to carry and consume near the waterfall as it is considered as a holy place by the locals. Also you need to remove your foot wear before entering the Devkund.
Safety divider of net is built by the locals as there was an incident of drowning of 3 trekkers, so tourists are not allowed to get deep inside the Devkund, however you can enjoy yourselves near the shore of the Devkund. And yes it is also compulsory to get yourself a guide before you head towards the Devkund from base village.
1. Parking charges: 25
2. Guide charge: 50 per head.
Tip: “Before leaving for trek you can ask the locals to cook veg/ non-veg food. So when you return from trek you can relax at their place and get yourself recharged".
During our trek we have ordered Chicken thali from a local known “Shelar Mama .” Let me tell you there are many locals with surname Shelar, so do know the exact name of the local from whom you are ordering food to avoid confusion later.
