Supposedly home to one of 12 highly sacred Jyotirlingas in India, Bhimashankar, with its dense emerald jungles in the Western Ghats and religious fables, often proves its mettle as a fine escapade for city dwellers.
Bhimshankar is a carpet of greenery and legend has it that the dense jungles here served as a refuge for the Pandavas. The place is the source of River Bhima and is named after the same. The biggest draw here is the sacred Bhimashankar Temple. This is one of the 12 temples of Shiva's Jyothirlinga fame. Nature enthusiasts would do well to explore the serene hidden depths of the Bhimshankar Wildlife Sanctuary, where the local biodiversity has been diligently protected for generations.

Bhimashankar is easily visited as a day-trip from Pune. A night’s stay offers the opportunity to spend more time in this tranquil kshetra. The delights of the temple and adjoining shrines can be discovered in an hour’s time. The fairly challenging forest trek takes more than a couple of hours. The viewpoint trail takes about an hour.
