Dhak Bahiri is a cave in the Sahyadri hill range, situated near the village Jambhivli off village-Malavali in the Pune district of India. It was used by pilgrims and sages for the pilgrimage to the god Bahiri.

Location[edit]

The nearest col to the cave sits at the end of a 1-hour hike along a trail leading out of Jambhivli. From there, the terrain rises into the Dhak and Kalakrai peak. Reaching the cave requires ascending the col and walking along the scarp, followed by a 30' vertical ascent.

Inside the cave[edit]

Water from the rock face drains into a cistern in the cave. There is room inside for 50-100 people to camp overnight. The local village maintains a supply of utensils and cookware on hand for use by campers.[1].
