So me, and two of my friends wanted to go to a weekend destination, where we can run away from the sweltering heat of the urban neighborhood, that we have to indulge in, involuntarily. Anyway, the place decided was Devkund, which according to what I have heard is a freshwater waterfall made pool, beyond the Tamhini Ghats.
We began our Trip at 01:30 in the afternoon, and I was a bit reluctant to go to Devkund, as I was skeptical, that we will be able to reach the pool, during daylight, however, I guess, they say whatever happens, is for good...So we took the Paud Road from Chandni Chowk, Pune to Mulshi, and onwards to Tamhini Ghat.
Around 90 km from Pune, we came to a T-Junction, and took a right towards the Bhira Village, from where we began our ascent. We reached Bhira Village around 05:30, from there, we took a guide(Rahul - 07276482932), along with his pet dog Kaalu :P for the trek, who charged us INR500 for it, however the price might be around INR1000 at Peak Season. We started our ascent around 06:20 PM in the evening, and reached Devkund at 08:20 PM, as it is a 7Km trek, and although it was dark we, were totally mesmerized by the serenity, and calmness of the place.
The way to the pool is a bit tiresome and draining, so will suggest to carry water along. Once there, we started to unpack our sleeping bags and mats, to relax from the back breaking hike, and the cool weather around the pool rejuvenated us almost instantly. We relaxed for a while and then started with Bonfire, and a bit of shutter-bugging.
