    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.

    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.

    An outstanding experience - loved the simple approach of this trek.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 are something that made me think how time destroys everything.

    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.
