There is an important update on Bhimashankar trek via Shidi Ghat. There were two routes from Khandas to Bhimashankar, one is Ganesh ghat and other is Shidi ghat or ladder route.

As you can see in the pictures, it is almost a vertical climb which is difficult and more risky. To avoid risk and for safety purpose ladders were installed. This was the shortest trekking route to Bhimashankar from Khandas village.

We urged you to opt for another trekking route from Khandas village. Do not attempt or try to explore Shidi ghat till next update on the same. Ganesh ghat is also a very scenic and charming route to Bhimashankar temple.

Trekking community is expecting the ladders installation very soon but yet there is no confirmation on the same. Everyone is requested not to opt for Bhimashankar temple trek via Shidi ghat.

Those who want to visit Bhimashankar Temple, they can use the road which goes till the temple entrance.
