Bhimashankar is one of the 12 jyotirlingas located near Pune. Its a monsoon trek, we took sufficient amount of water, snacks, trekking shoes and rain coat though it can't resist you from drenching in the rain. We started from IIT Bombay by a traveller at 4:30 am. We reached the base village Khnadas by 8:30. It was a nice village in the foot of the hill. One can also reach Khandas from Neral railway station.
