Today I was ready at 6:00 am because I had to go on a very beautiful hill for trekking. The name of this place was Ghoradeshwar hill. In fact, the Ghoradeshwar trek is quite famous for daily trekking lovers. The Ghoradeshwar is around 25 km from Pune on Old Pune – Mumbai Highway. When I reached Ghoradeshwar, there were many trekkers. I had visited this place earlier. But Today I have determined the goal, that I had to go to the highest peak of Ghoradeshwar. That was the fun for the Ghoradeshwar trek.
Ghoradeshwar Temple history
Apart from Ghoradeshwar Trek, Ghoradeshwar Hill is famous for the ancient temple of Lord Shiva and Buddhist caves. There are two temples of Lord Shiva. I was very excited about this trekking and felt very thrilled. There are more than 350 steps to go to Ghoradeshwar. Before the start of the steps, an idol of Lord Shiva’s Nandi and the tortoise is kept in a portico.
I had just started the Ghoradeshwar Trek, the stairs of the track are very wide and there are slabs on both sides of the stairs. Some people were sitting and some were doing exercises, now I have completed half the part of the hill. This part of the hill is fairly plain, from here the statue of Birla Ganpati Ji is visible as well as a very beautiful view of Old Mumbai Pune Highway can be seen. The surrounding hills are also visible from this point.
Now I moved further to reach the top. After going up a little. The stairs were less wide than before. I was slowly moving upwards. After about 5-6 minutes, I reached Lord Shiva temple. From here we can see a beautiful view behind Ghoradeswar Hill.
The Mumbai Pune Expressway and Gahunje Cricket Stadium look very beautiful from this point. Buddhist vacant caves are situated before and after Shiv temple. There were small water reservoirs. The rainwater is stored in these reservoir naturally.
Lord Shiva’s temple closed at this time. But I did darshan of Lord Shiva from the grill. I took a photo here. Now I moved further to go to the highest peak of Ghoradeshwar Hill. As I was moving forward the track was getting a bit difficult and finally had to climb a straight hill. I climb this part of the hill very carefully. I was climbing by upholding the stones. Here I would like to tell you that if you are coming with family and children, then you should not use this trek because from here a little carelessness the climber may fall into the ditch.
As soon as I reached the above part, there was an ancient temple of Lord Shiva and a small temple of Ganapati Maharaja. It was also built in front of the temple. I did darshan of Lord Shiva from the grill. This ancient temple door was also closed like the first shiv temple. I was happy about capturing the images.
After seeing Lord Shiva temple, Now I wanted to go to the highest peak of Ghoradeswar. I was going forward now, After about 50 meters it was a straight path.
Ghoradeshwar hill highest point
Now Ghoradeshwar trek journey, I was very close to my destination and I could see a flag at a height of approx 20-25 meters. Now I wanted to reach near that flag very quickly. I started climbing again and reached the top near this flag. I have found a pond over there, A path was also made to walk around it. It seems that it has been built to collect rainwater. At this height, another flag was seen about 200-300 meters away. It seems that it was the highest point of Ghoradeshwar Hill.
Now I walked towards it. After walking for two to three minutes I was standing near the flag. I was feeling very happy that I was at the highest peak of Ghoradeshwar Hill. Ghoradeshwar trekking was a very memorable experience for me.
