The Sahyadri range is well known for its tourist attractions, Harishchandragad trek and for its natural scenic beauty, making it a haven for adventurers!

There are seven routes leading to this fort, but the most popular and challenging route is the Khireshwar route due to the beautiful scenery that you pass through during the Harishchandragad trek in monsoon.
