The Devkund Waterfall

‘Devkund’ translates to “Bathing Pond of Gods”, and this mystical fall; that’s considered sacred by locals, also has mythological significance. It is a wildly popular trekking destination among professional and recreational trekkers. Some of the beautiful treks like Tamhini Ghats & Andharban also fall under this area.

This trek route is about 170 km from Mumbai and 110 km from Pune. The journey to the base village is about 7 hours long from Mumbai and 5 hours long from Pune. It can be easily accessed through the Mumbai Pune Expressway, though.

What’s So Special?

There are very few perennial waterfalls in Maharashtra like Devkund Waterfall. (and also really - and we mean reaaalllyyy unexplored.) The waterfall is surrounded by a thick green forest with many beautiful & rare species of animals and birds. Devkund keeps the spirit of the monsoon alive.

Your trek will lead you through many unexplored trails and you will navigate slippery rocks - the trek usually contains medium to easy obstacles along the way. But, once you reach Devkund Waterfall you will be overwhelmed with its beauty, so trust us - it’s worth it.

The waterfall also has gorgeous white water cascading down a series of rocky outcrops, giving it the look of multiple waterfalls rather than just one. If you’re lucky, you might just catch a glimpse of an almost picture-perfect sunrise against the backdrop of huge mountains, lush greenery, and glistening waters.
