It lies on the route of the Varandha Pass which crosses the Sahyadris in the Pune district of Maharashtra in India.

Shivthar Ghal is a rare yet refreshing, silent yet soothing, small yet unique place waiting to be explored. The name comes from a cavern in this place ('Ghal' is for a cavern in Marathi) where Samarth Ramdas (the guru of 'Shivaji Maharaj') used to sit, pray, meditate and more importantly scripted down the famous 'Dasbodh' manuscript. Shivthar Ghal is a quiet abode, housing some lush green places, a lovely waterfall and a river and some of the toughest on foot, picturesque mountains.
