The legend goes that a cow was unintentionally killed by Saint Gautam as he was trying to chase it away. After the incident, he prayed to Lord Shiva to allow the Ganga to flow through to cleanse him of his sins. Lord Shiva was quite impressed with his devotion and allowed the Ganga to flow through as the River Godavari.
In 1908, 500 steps were added to make the hills more accessible to the general public. One can also spot a few wild animals during their ascent. Nature walking is also a great way to explore the region, especially when in a large group. Any visit to Nasik is quite incomplete without taking a small tour of the Brahmagiri Hills.
