Situated in Sahyadri Hills, Bhimashankar is nestled inside the small village of Ambegaon in Pune. Offering scenic beauty with rich vegetation and wildlife, it is home to Bhimashankar Temple, one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva. It’s reachable by going down 230 steps which aren’t too steep. The temple is located inside the Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary that also offers challenging treks for those seeking an outdoor adventure. While you’re in the area, you can also visit the Ahupe Waterfall and Hanuman Lake. While Bhimashankar’s greenery is best seen during or after monsoons, it’s also worth visiting in the winter as the weather becomes pleasantly chilly.
Just a few kilometers away from the Bhimashankar Temple, you’ll find the MTDC Bhimashankar spread across a large area. All the rooms are spacious with modern amenities and offer magnificent views of the forest. With a separate balcony for each room, you might just catch a glimpse of the flying squirrel and other species of wild animals. The resort has a beautiful play area for children and an on-property restaurant Nagara that serves delicious vegetarian food. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the lush green views and fresh air make this resort an ideal place to stay for a relaxing weekend or for your short trip to the Bhimashankar temple.
