🙏 Brahmagiri

You can now hike up the Brahmagiri mountains - it takes 2 hours with breaks to hike up. You may almost give up on those 750 steps but once you reach the top - you can just relax and enjoy the stunning views. Monsoon is best time to go when you can spot waterfalls and enjoy lush green meadows of #westernghats !

#Brahmagiri is being polluted with plastic bottles and wraps. It is nothing but sad to see nature being vandalised. Carry your own metal bottle. Carry your trash back.

Auto will go near this Hill. Total steps is around 750 but auto will go upside of this hill and leave you where you have to go by walk approx 200 steps. Here, you take Bamboos for support in your walking at Rs 10. On the upstair total 05 temples are there. Better to take empty bottle for getting holy water from Kund. Beware of Monkeys. Dont show any food items and keep the bamboo ready, if they come. Otherwise enjoy your step and beauty of the mountain.

Recently in during the Christmas (Dec 2018) we had visited Brahmagiri hill near Trimbakeswar and the trip was excellent. Though people say that those hill areas are good during or after the monsoon due to their greenish views but visiting this time in winter will give you another side of the image. The hills will look quite dry but you will be able to notice the wall like rocks along the Brahmagiri or Sahayadri ranges. We went to this place from Trimbakeswar. If you have your own car and if it is small hatchback and of you are quite confident in driving along the narrow ghat roads then you can go of your own. But I suggest you take the rental autos from Trimbakeswar who will charge you between 400-600 for to and fro trips as that you give you some relaxation due to not driving but viewing the beauty of the nature. Once you reach Brahmagiri (some 10-12 kms which will take 45 mins) you will be de-boarded from your vehicle at the entrance of the ghat. Then you have to take a rough muddy road for about 1 kms and then the stairs start. There are lots of Palki (palanquin) services available for aged and/or physically challenged people (and also for kids to have fun) - they take some 800-1000 for taking you in those palkis. A single adult or 2-3 kids can sit on one Palki. There are around 180-200 steps to reach Ganda Dwar or Ganga Mandir which is the origin of river Godavari (The river Godavari is called Dakshin Ganga or the Ganges of the Southern India and hence the names Ganga Dwar or Ganga Mandir. There is another route to reach Brahmagiri or Ganga Dwar which is from Trimbakeswar State highway and in that case you have to climb around 750 steps. Suggestable is this route where you can go through vehicle and then climb for 150-200 steps. Once you reach Ganga Dwar then you can view the Kund (well) to witness the origin of river Godavari. The same hill hosts many other tourist places like 108 Shiva lingam caves (bit narrow and you have to be very careful while walking along the route) and other caves like Rishi Goutam and Rishi Gorakh. But once you reach and visit there then you will be able to witness a different feeling by realizing how those sages did their tapasyas in those caves thousands of years ago. Atop the hill there are many other caves and Shiva lingams but to reach there you have to cross some 1500 steps from the down State highway. But visiting Ganga Dwar or Ganga Mandir and other nearby caves in of great worth considering the rough routes and those 200-300 steps climbing. Also you will find water bottles, sugarcane juice and some biting food stalls. You can hire bamboo sticks as well (hardly 10-15 Rs per stick) if you need a support while climbing up. Overall it's quite a good place to visit with family and kids (ensuring the parents take care of their kids safety). Considering travel time of nearly 2 hours to and fro Trimbakeswar it is worth staying there for another 2-3 hours.

Situated near Timbakeshwar temple and vineyards, it’s one of the most approachable hill climbs and trek. It’s not very steep nearly 70% but last 30% is tough but doable. I managed to do with my 5 year old son. View on top is great as u can see city on both sides. Sunsets even better

Brahmagiri trek is the easy level trek with high stairs and good views. Hilltop is the origin of the Godavari river.

It's a wonderful place in monsoon season, many waterfalls and greenery. We were there in the end of July. Because of the rain its little less crowd, but as for me its best time for visiting. Necessary need to take some raincoat, and be very cautious on stairs and with monkeys. They are very rude there, and don't even think to show them any food. After reaching the top of the mountain, for 100-200 m you have to come down from another side - there you will see a small temple of Godavari river and many waterfalls. Due to strong wind, water from the waterfall is moving opposite side and its very marvelous looking
