Dhak Bhairi Route and Timing
You can leave Pune by 6am and can return by 4pm easily. People even stay at Dhak caves overnight.
The path to the Dhak Bhairi cave is amazing and scenic. It presents view of Dukes Nose and Rajmachi fort. One the way we pass one small pinnacle on right as we descend last time to deal with tricky rock patch. One fatal mistake here will be the last mistake of your life on this patch. Adequate safety is provided on the route. But if you have Acrophobia (fear of height) then this is the place where you can conquer it!!!!
Fall of few hundred feet is on you left as you do the traverse and rock climb. Hardly few inch of ground to make contact and take grip. Be careful and you will enjoy the patch.
