Trip to Shri Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga

Har Har Mahadev.

In June 2011 we visited Shri Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga.
The best time to visit Bhimashankar is mansoon time. June-Aug is the best time to visit the temple.

There are many ways to visit Bhimashankar.
1. Via Trekking from Karjat.
2. Via road side from mumbai-pune highway then by-pass to Talegaon-Chakkan highway road.

Things to know :
1. Temple is very quite and very peaceful.
2. Take all food items with you, very less facility available for food and restaurant.
3. If you love village and villagers then you will love this place.
4. Temple is walkable from bus-station, few walking steps.



In mansoon season the entire way is very good, you feel refreshing.

Neral – Matheran Mountain Railway

I like rail-fanning though I am not giving too much time on my this hidden activity. But one day I will be active rail-fanning guy.
Want to know all about train and trains. Even though today also its like daily adventure traveling via train in mumbai.

So we have decided to visit Matheran via Neral-Matheran Mountain Railways.
The train timings are very convenient. There are very few routes in India where toy trains are running. You can see like for more detail.

In season time and on weekends the trains are running full, so you make sure you book train tickets well in time. You can book tickets via IRCTC website. So we did the same we have already booked the tickets. 🙂

Nerail is situated in Mumbai – Pune rail road. From Neral we can catch Matheran Train which takes 90 minutes average.

A View of narrow gauge, it looks very less space between two tracks and put us into confusion that how a train run on such a narrow space.
