Durg and Dhakoba are the two prominent peaks on the plateau between Naneghat and Bhimashankar ranges in Pune. Since they are at 3,900 and 4,100 feet respectively, they offer commanding views of the ranges around. One can camp at Durg temple or Dhakoba temple, both of which are located between thickets. If attempted from the Konkan side, the trek involves climbing up and down steep ghats, which is quite a challenging task, even for experienced trekkers.
Beginners can attempt this from the Deccan side with little effort and enjoy the grandeur of the Western Ghats.
