Trekking in Dajipur

Situated in the middle of the dense forests of Kolhapur and Sindhudurg, we find a small town called Dajipur . Trekking in this area near the waters of the Radhanagari dam is a great experience that the most sporty cannot miss. It takes 3 hours to get to Dajipur from Kolhapur, and it becomes an 8 hour drive from Pune. The undulating topography offers spectacular views of the area.

The dam built by Radhanagari Shahu Maharaj in pre-independence times has added a much greener touch to the natural beauty. The Indian bison (Gaur) is found in Dajipur and is one of the main tourist attractions. It must be said that, for those who want to have a relaxing holiday, Dajipur is not the best solution.

Vehicles can appear out of nowhere by way of the roads, so trekking can be difficult to practice after setting off. The interior of the forests, like any other pristine and evergreen region, offers a solitary and cool environment that is quite pleasant. The only thing that can take us to the heart of the jungle is walking.

The best time to observe bison is the first hours of the morning. In the monsoon season, you can even see herds of bison soaking. The evergreen forest does not make you feel tired. It is not normal to become dehydrated unless you do not carry any water with you. It is best to hire the services of a good trekking guide.
