Bhimashankar wildlife sanctuary Reviews
This wildlife sanctuary of Maharashtra is established in 1984 in Pune, thane and Raighad district. The main attraction of this sanctuary Leopard, Hyena, spotted eagle and Hornbill etc. Basically a home of Indian squirrel (also a state animal of Maharashtra) Bhimashankar sanctuary is also a habitat for green pigeon black eagle and Malabar Whistling Thrush.
Nice place for the trekkers I have visited this sanctuary last year. If you are a nature lover then I will suggest you go there in Monsoon Season. Bhimashankar Temple is just a walking distance from here. So you have the opportunity to visit one of 14 jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva.

Best place for holiday and family outing. If you want fresh air and beautiful scenery than there is no better place than this. I have visited after taking information about mayani bird sanctuary near vaduj, Maharastra last year to see birds and I have found this wildlife sanctuary richer in terms of Indian birds.
