About Devkund Waterfall: Devkund waterfall is a dream destination for travelers looking for a mix of a moderate hike that leads to a vast space of emptiness. The first sight of this beauty leaves you spellbound by its humongous size. So where is this beauty located? The famous Andharban trek starts at Pimpri dam and ends at Bhira dam (Bhira village) which lies approx 150km from Mumbai. A short 2hrs trek from Bhira leads to Devkund waterfall. This trek can be done by amateurs as well. The approximate length of the trek is 4.5km which includes a hike alongside the Bhira dam, patches of forest cover, a small water stream, and open fields. There is no big ascend throughout the trek excluding the last 10% which requires a 300ft approx of gradual ascending to finally reach the waterfall. The clearest blue waters make the beauty of the waterfall unrealistic.
