This is the same road which leads to Bhimashakar temple from the base village Dimbhe Khurd, if you turn to left will reach Bhimashankar and on the right we have the beautiful road which takes you to the base wall of Dimbhe dam. As you climb on the back side of the dam you enter into the most scenic and beautiful road with backwater on left and nature trail on the right.
