Magical colours of sky.
I captured this picture on a trek to Bhimashankar. Bhimashankar is an Easy-Medium level trek with 3 iron ladders on the route. This was my first ever night trek. We were a group of 35 people and this trek was organised by @aberrantwanderers.
We started our trek from the base village at around 1:00AM and we were at the top by 4:00AM. I saw millions of stars that night and also a few falling stars. It was truly a beautiful experience. At night you don't understand how far you have walked or on how tough terrain you were walking, I realised the dangers of walking on those Iron ladders only in the morning while returning back to the base village where villagers cooked delicious village style food!
I was shit load scared while going down those ladders but then I was hungry for the village food so I cane down quickly. 😂
Bhimashankar trek is known to be one of the best treks in Sahyadri ranges. The forest of Bhimashankar is paradise for nature lovers as it hosts several exotic specie of wildlife and the most famous of all being the elusive rust-colo
If you ever get a chance to go on this trek, do not miss, especially if you are Shiva bhakt. There is a temple of lord Shiva on the top.
The Bhimashankara temple (one of 12 Jyotirlings) is a composite of old and the new structures and is built in the Nagara style of architecture. It is a modest yet graceful temple and it dates back to mid 18th century. The Shikhar of the temple was built by Nana Phadnavis. The great Maratha ruler Shivaji is also said to have made endowments to this temple to facilitate the carrying out, of worship services. As with other Shiva temples in this area, the sanctum is at a lower level.
