Bedse caves would complete the trio of Buddhist caves around Lonavala and Kamshet along with Karla Caves and Bhaja caves. But the bedse caves relatively lesser known to the touristy crowd and gets much lesser visitors than the other two. This was actually a good reason for me to go and visit this place.
This is one of the best reasons to visit this place and get the feel of the peace and serenity which is the character of this beautiful location. These caves are located 40 km from Pune to the Bedse Village followed by a thirty minute walk from the village. In fact, the hike to the caves can be considered to be quite pleasant and relaxing feels like walking amidst nature.
