Harishchandragad was an amazing experience. This was my first trekking experience and I must say that its was in all a fairly descent one! All the arrangements were very well taken care of - the food, transport, camping. The group members were equally supportive - it was like a family together experience for me. I'm certainly planning a trek in future.

Well, the fort might appear spooky especially at night but what an amazing place. No honking no crowd..it was like the entire trek was exclusively designed for us. Had a great experience. The best part was camping, the sky is lit with stars at night..and that is something that made me take this trip twice. Awesome experience.

Overview

About The Destination:

  • Harischandragad, situated in the Maslej region of the Western Ghats is one of the most famous hill forts. Located in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, this quaint sleepy region is known for its scenic beauty and alluring charm! It is an an ancient fort from the Medieval period where the Great sage Changdev (Writer of the epic Tatvasaar), used to meditate in the 14th century. Situated at a distance of approximately 90km from Kalyan, Harischandragad trek is one of the most challenging treks in the Western Ghats. 
  • Konkan Kada: One of the biggest cliffs of the sahyadris, fascinating many people from years together. Facing towards the konkan side, the cliff looks down upon the Konkan with a breathtaking view of the surrounding region. Not only vertical, but it has an overhang, almost like a cobra’s hood.

    Kedareshwar: The cave of Kedareshwar has a big Shivlinga, which is totally surrounded by water.

    Trekking to this fort is an excellent experience with nice route and good stay arrangements in the caves or tents. The view of valley from Taramati point and Kokan kada is awesome. It takes about 4-5 hours to reach the destination from the base village named Khireshwar. The night trek could be an ideal way to reach this fort during monsoon.

    Easily the best you can get in Maharashtra in a day's trek. Harishchandragarh offers a view you can never see anywhere in the world. The famous Konkan Kada. And the cave with Shivaling and one pillar still standing. The peak is called Taramati Peak and it offers a fantastic 360 degree view of a myriad of peaks.
