So, I'v been looking at some articles describing some treks in maharashtra and I'm not sure where to go. I have been to himachal many times for decent treks and cant find anything similar here. I know the difference between mountains and hills but still if anyone can suggest some good treks where we can camp too.

Not a trek as such, but Matheran might be a place to wander around on foot?

Your query is quite vague. Sahyadris have some amazing trekking options especially in monsoons. Some of them are quite technical with requirements of training,guide and gear. First decide what you are looking for then maybe you can get suitable suggestions. A simple trek would be harishchandragad, kalavantin,or torna. Some of them have rock patches where you can try your hand at some tricky climbing. Sandhan valley is also there
Search gautam khetwal on YouTube

I have been to Kalsubai and Janani temple in Tise village Kolad. More information about the second one is in my signature.

I think both might not meet the criteria you have mentioned. However both of them were incredible to me. Kalsubai as it was the first time that I was trekking a peak and Janani since we climbed during the night with the help of a torch.

Also walked from Neral to Matheran along with freinds during college days.

thanks for the suggestions people!..I searched about bhimashankar trek and it looks very appealing. I just wanna make sure this is the right time to go there. Also if someone can tell me if camping at the top is possible and do I need a sleeping bag over there etc.

Very easy - suitable for first times and young kids - Purandar, Korigad, Lohagad (a perfect example of what Maha has to offer)
Easy - Tikona
Easy, but has thrills - Rohida (windy fort), Raireshwar (interesting steel ladder to climb)
I haven't been to any of the ones which require technical expertise as i always travel with family/kids. But i have been to many others which are equally thrilling and enjoyable.
You can see the details here

bhimasankar has many routes/sides to climb from. Some are very easy while some require a guide as the route can be tricky/long

For Bhimashankar, this is an OK time to trek. But once the rains stop and the October heat comes on, then you'd best avoid it till it cools down in late November. Keep it straightforward and use the Ganesh Ghat route from Khandas. Bhimashankar in itself is a Jyotirling, so proper camping may not be possible (there will be many people there). Alternatively you can carry just a sleeping bad and sleep in the stands next to the temple.

If you are looking for long, multi-day treks, then there are multiple range-treks that can take 2 days to 1 week to finish.

IMPORTANT: Dont trek solo at anywhere in the Sahyadris. Have some company with you. Better still, go with a known/reliable group. The terrain here is unforgiving and except the monsoons you'll be at risk of heat-strokes in the afternoons no matter which month you go.

PM if you need any additional/specific info

Did you check out sandhan valley and dhak chi bahiri. Also do take note of kapils suggestions. Sahyadris are less forgiving than himalayas in some cases.
