About Dhak.

Dhak is huge flat-topped hill detached from the main range of the ghats. It has a long ridge falling towards Karjat. From Karjat we have to travel towrds Vadap (8 km) via Dahili and Venagaon. A 5 km climb takes you to the upper plateau; this plateau is thickly forested with shrubs and trees; you will find lot of Karvanda growing in wild here. Dhak Village is located on this plateau. Another 5 km of climb and one reaches the top of the plateau. Dhak is connected with Rajmachi and Kusur situated on the ghats.

About Bhairoba Dhak.

A prominent projection, jutting out from the main range between Rajmachi and Dhak. It has a round top and commands an excellent view of Rajmachi and Ulhas Valley. Bhairoba Dhak can also be approached from Rajmachi / Lonavala side; or from Sandshi in the Konkan side or from Khandpe.

Approach to Bhairoba Cave is stighly tricky and not advisable in in-experienced trekkers.
