This place is really a god's and nature's creation. The waterfall looks like falling in a vessel. SO the name must have been derived Devkund waterfall. Its a 2 hrs drive from Pune to the place.

The best time is to visit the site between September end and October end. This is the time when you will really see the waterfalls. Attached are few photos clicked during the visit on 10/October.

The best way to reach is to tag along with the organizing group, you will find a lot starting from Pune and Mumbai for around 1399 INR. The trek starts from a village named Patnus and is a 7 KM (2hrs approx. depend on your pace) long trek through the jungle, while the trek is largely flat terrain there are two spots that have a good climb. Good shoes and water are a must. On your way back you will have a few walkway side hawkers selling light snacks and water. Carry some sunscreen and some snacks for a quick bite.

I suggest starting early at around 5.30 - 6 AM to reach there early and avoid the crowd.

The beauty of Devkund waterfall is truly worth the last 30 minutes grind to reach there.

We were a friends group and started from Mumbai in our private car. The ride on Mum-Pune Expressway is smooth but turns tumultous once you leave the highway snaking through the pothole strewn roads leading up to Bhira (the base village). We went in monsoons, so the locations along the way were picturesque and since there was no hurry to reach, we cruised along.

There is ample parking space available at the base. However, when we reached, the parking was full. The locals allow parking in front of their huts [for a charge of course ;)] and the charge per vehicle is Rs.100. There is a check-point where they take a fee of Rs.50 per person at the start and take down your name and allot a number (guess this would be to keep a track of all people visiting in case there is a search party to be sent).

As there was a huge crowd, we did not take a guide and followed the beeline of people right from the start to the end and back. However, if you happen to go during an off-season or weekdays, it is advisable to hire a guide for Rs.100 since few of the trails are treacherous and may cause one to get lost in the forest.

The trek takes about 2 to 2.5 hours depending on your speed with largely barren land walking. It passes through various small streams with ropes tied across and takes only a simple level strength to pass through. Further, there are locals stationed at these streams, ropeways as well as at strategic locations across the trail to guide trekkers in the right direction. There are few shops selling maggi, vapa pav and tea along the way but it is highly recommended that you take your own food. Only the last half hour feels like an actual trek when you will have to climb upwards through a dense jungle which completely hides the majestic waterfall at the end. Infact, you hear the waterfall first before seeing it and it will completely mesmerize you since it suddenly appears through the foliage.

There is a rope boundary tied at a safe distance from the actual waterfall and since people have died doing stunts, it is advisable to adhere to the rules. The depth is around 60 feet deep where the water actually falls but there are rocks about 20-25 metres away where you can sit and clicks lovely photos.

We nursed our unknown leg muscles while returning back, which again took about 2 hours and returned to Mumbai the same day.

The entire trek can be completed in a day. Take your own food and water. Take a mobile cover since rains can go crazy here..

We started our journey (two couples) at 07:15 am from Pune in a car. After stopping for breakfast on the way, we reached base village Bhira at 10:00 am. One has to pay car parking fees of Rs. 100 and another fee of Rs. 50 per person before starting the trek. This additional fee is a token amount used by local villagers since they put in efforts towards crowd management and safety. The trek passes through beautiful backwaters of the Bhira dam. The trek for most parts passes through plain terrain with green vegetation all around. It follows the Kundalika river which is very picturesque. We stopped to click pictures at multiple places. There are places where the terrain is uphill especially at the end. At many places one has to cross small streams. Local villagers have ensured there are guides posted at all tricky places and ropes are placed to help trekkers cross rivulets, streams and help climb slightly steaper paths.
The one way trek took us 2 hours. At the end of the trek we witnessed one of the most beautiful waterfall fall. The waterfall is serene and mesmerizing. One forgots all the difficulties witnessed during the climb once the waterfall is infront of your eyes. There is a small pond naturally created at the waterfall where once can enter the cold water and relax. Villagers have placed safety rope in this pond to ensure visitors do not enter the deep area.
On the return journey we had to face slight drizzle. There are 5-6 small temporary shelters which serve tea, maggie, mineral water and bhajiya. The return journey again took 2 hours and we were very tired at the end of the trek.
There is also bathroom and changing room facility available at the parking point.
For us it was a tiring yet a very wonderful experience.

one of the most beautiful waterfall in maharashtra. i visited in jan this time of the year the waterfall had very less water. so best time to visit will be during monsoon but make sure that the place is not closed. you also need to have a guide which is compulsory and they charge about 500.

a beautiful waterfall in the bhira village. be careful when you visit during monsoon as it it closed most of the time in monsoom due to heavy flow of water. As of dec 2019 the roads to bhira village from pune are very very bad. you have to reach bhira village famous for tata power dad and then trek for 45-60 mins. you will have to make an entry and take a guide.

Hello all...I recently visited Devkund on Sunday 17th Nov and this place is totally worth visiting. I started my from Mumbai and I will help you with all the details on how to reach this place from Mumbai.

We started from Mumbai at 7 on our is approx 124 km via Chouk-khopoli-Pali road. The roads are good enough till Imagica...once u start from Imagica to Pali the roads are really bad. After Pali the Bhira village where you will need to stay and start the trekk js about 22 km. The roads are good enough from Pali to Bhira. Google maps will guide you. But you will need Idea or Airtel network as Jio does not work there.

We reached around 10 30-11 at base camp...we already had our guide and lunch booked. The guide charges are 100 rs per person and lunch is 160 veg and non veg. I will share the details for booking in advance at end of this review.

Started our trekking from Bhira village. Our guide told us it would be around 2 hours if u take too many halts in between or its just 1.5 hours. There are beautiful scenes on the way where you can click pictures or have nimbu paani to hydrate yourself. There is one point where it gets too difficult to climb as its too steep but its just for 10 15 mins then rest all is good enough to walk. Also you will get a bridge where u will need to pay 10 rs to cross..lmao

We reached waterfall at around 12:50..the scenes are really beautiful. You can carry extra clothes to bath in ice chilling water as its too cold once u enter.There are changing camps available to ladies to change clothes too. There is a rope for people not to cross that rope as it is too deep ahead so dont try to swim near the place where water falls down. Also you will need to carry your own food or you can have maggie and vadapav which is near the waterfall (It is not hygenic so please carry your own food). We had great fun with great pictures and lots of memories around.

Then we were back to base camp...with lovely pictures and we will soon plan to do camping at this place.

You can contact Ganesh on 776053052..he helped us a lot and you can call him to book in advance for lunch and breakfast too. The food was really good.

Overall best experience...if u need any further details...feel free to contact me on my insta page :- meettnna (copypaste as it is)

Visited devkund with family and friends on 01 Nov 19. Worth visiting. Calm and beautiful environment with only sound of the waterfall. However while visiting this place there are few things you should keep in mind.

1. Plan a two day trip, instead of 1 day if you live 100 kms or beyond from this place, reason being the roads are simply pathetic, I mean entire mulshi road ( if you are coming from Pune) is under construction. Moreover some stretches on tamhini ghat road are like moon craters and this makes your journey to take around 4-4.30 hours one side from Pune to reach bhira village parking and since the trek to and fro takes around 4 hours, it usually gets dark by the time you return, and driving on moon craters is simply not advisable at night, moreover rain and fog makes the matter worse.

2. Fill your fuel tank well in advance, as there is hardly any fuel pump in the way from mulshi road to bhira village parking.

3. Take raincoats,hats, with shoes as the forest is quite dense and rainfall is quite frequent.

4. Carry lots of water.

5. If you plan to choose to stay in devkund at night, there are camping sites nearby bhira village. Although they charge a lot ( Rs. 1200 per head for a night) you can still bargain.

6. Reach this place by your car or hired cab. Though you can go by two wheelers but then you will have to take care of the rain.

7. Do hire a guide, as the forest is dense and the last thing you will want is to get lost. They charge Rs. 100 per head and 160 for lunch ( if you want).

8. Go in a group rather than solo.

All and all it was a nice adventurous trip for us and we enjoyed a lot.
Special thanks to our guide Ganesh Chavan, who guided us very well through the dense forest and also arranged Changing room and lunch for us at his house.
