Way back in the mid 90's there was a direct bus from Igatpuri bus stand (walking distance from the railway station) to Bhandardara via Bari at around 5:00 am in the morning.

Good to know. I recollect, we friends, took a late night train from CSTM to Igatpuri, gave some money to the coolies to ensure that we get some place to sit in the unreserved coach. Got down at Igatpuri some where around 3:00 am. Three of us got out of the station looking for bus stop, where we came to know about the first bus to Bhandardara. Came back to the station, had some burji, slept on the benches at the platform, got up and then walked to the bus stand to catch the bus.

Reaching Igtapuri is very difficult. So I prefer Kasara to reach Bari.

I have no idea about buses from Kasara to Bari early in the morning.

You can take any train going to Igatpuri during the night and then take the first bus to Bari. Looking at the MSRTC time table the first bus towards Bari leaves at 7:50 in the morning. See https://msrtc.maharashtra.gov.in/ind...&submit=Submit

reach kasara at night by the last train. i think it reaches by 2:30am. you'll find shared jeeps headed toward nasik. alight at ghoti and wait for the bus to arrive. or you can negotiate for a direct drop to bari if you find an empty jeep.

check the mumbai hikers blog for jeep contacts. i had posted one from kasara earlier, but i'm not sure if that number is active anymore.
