Western Ghats never fail to amaze us any point of monsoon. I have done lot of treks in Maharshtra, Devkund is one of my favourite.

Devkund is waterfall located near Bhira in Raigad district ,India.It is a plunge waterfall pouring massive amount of water on the rocky surface underneath. It is moderate level trek and can be completed in one day from Mumbai or Pune.

During trek we cross backwaters of dam. Bhira has Tata hydro power plant. During trek you get to cross river streams and walk through the dense forests.

During peak monsoon season,there have been few incidents reported here so it is advisable to have guide with you. Or you can also join travel groups from Mumbai. At several places on the way, water stream is at very high flow and it is advisable to cross only with help of some one

that is how we crossed

Do carry your own food and water. Most importantly carry back your waste and used water bottles. Do not dump them then and there. This is something we all must adhere to, to save our nature.

Amazing rock view on the way

Safety tip: When you get into the water, do not go at the center of water body. Many drowning incidents have been reported.

Safety first, so avoid that high force area. During monsoon water raises very quickly due to the design of the hill, so always check weather updates before you visiting.
