An Essential Guide to Reach Devkund Waterfall for First Timer

Introduction of the Plan :

Updated 17 nov 2017. A trip starts with a small step, one needs to get out from the comfort zone. I have an urge to visit places where one gets to enjoy the crazies waterfall which seems to be different from other, so myself with four other friends we head towards a village called Bhira near Patnas in Tamini ghats here in this village you get to see Tata hydro power plant.

How to reach Base village of Devkund waterfall:

From Mumbai:

Reach Khopoli by train > Khopoli to Pali ( public bus ) > Pali to bhira (public bus )

How I went:

Catched the Train which starts from CST at 06:10 and reaches Karjat by 08:00, then hooped into the train to Khopoli timed 08:14 from Karjat and then reached Khopoli by 08:40am, Walked till the Bus stop(highway basically) which is 15 minutes  walk, got 09 am bus to Pali. From Pali hooped into a bus to Bhira at 10:15 am (If you miss 10:15 opt for Sharing auto because next bus is at 01:45)

Bus timetable at Pali

By car > Karjat – Khopoli – Pali – Bhira (Tata hypro power plant)

From Pune:

Reach Karjat by train > Karjat to Khopoli (train) > Khopoli to Pali ( public bus ) > Pali to bhira (public bus )

By Car > Swargate > Katraj > Taminighat > Patnus > Bhira (Tata hypro power plant)

Route to Devkund waterfall:

The route from Bhira village to Devkund waterfall is about 2 hrs trekking and the route is little difficult to get directions. Because of some incidents in the past(Monsoon season) it is compulsory to take localite with you has a guide ( Charges Rs. 100 per person).

So to sum up the cost of this trek:

Train= CST – Khopoli (return)= Rs. 60

Bus= Khopoli – Pali (return)=Rs. 102

Bus= Pali – Bhira Village (Return ) =Rs.40

Total expenditure=Rs. 202.

Guide Cost(A localite) = Rs.100 ( when I went it wasn’t compulsory)

So now your expense would be Rs.300 for the whole trek.

  1. Let us know when you will be planning the trek on moon. As we are very much aware about trekking madness. I think there is no space left for trekking on earth as my request please let us know when to plan and what will be the charges for the same.

  2. I would like to personally thank Gautam for inspiring & guiding me to go on this trek solo. Not only his blog helped me to plan my trip, as a genuine travelmate he has even guided me in detail to set up the itineraries correct. In a way, I owe you one man!
    As I’ve tried to summarise my experience in a lame attempt, you may read that here:

    Lastly, not only I wish Gautam all the very best to explore more & more amazing places, also I would be more than happy to be a part of some among them. Keep showing us the path towards awesomeness.

  3. If we plan an overnight trip are there any places to stay and also how’s August month for this trek?? We are a couple

    • If you go Overnight than you can carry your own tent and stay near the bhira village. Yeah August will be good time to go.
