Prachitgad Trek Overview

Location: Ratnagiri, Maharashtra

Timing: 2 days - 1 night

Situated on the western end of the Chandoli Wild Life Sanctuary the Prachitgad fort was barely accessible for trekkers and the general public. Shringarpur route, the only way to reach the fort is a trek and trial and offers amazing views of the lush greenery and misty hills of the region. The fort is located at an altitude of 3842 ft and the Prachitgad trek is both challenging and exciting. 

Trek through the Konkan side, through thick forests and experience an unusual Prachitgad Trek packed with adventure and thrill. You will be picked up from Pune and transported to Shrungarpur which will be your base camp for the trek. Get breakfast on the way, reach Shrungarpur and experience the calm, spend some leisure time, have your dinner and sleep for the night. Next morning, you will be climbing to the top and enjoying the magnificent sights of the Sahyadris mountain range and descending back by the evening before getting transported by to Pune. 

An experienced trekking guide will be with you throughout the trip and help you in case of anything. You will also get a printed brochure enlisting relevant information and guidelines about the trek along with all meals and safety equipment. 

Suitable for: Children above 11 years of age, family and friends.

    We had an amazing trek here. We loved it totally. We were around 15 friends. We were a bunch of my school friends and my college friends. It was a bid difficulty to plan and bring all of them together and move forward with the trip. Once that was done, we had a great time. The trek was so beautiful to take. Despite what many people say, we didn’t find this trek to be difficult or tough. IT was quite fun and interesting. We had a great time here, and I so recommend this one.

    Prachitgad Trek in Maharashtra is by far the best trek that I have ever been. Well, where should I start? I am a huge fan of trekking, and mostly treks are surrounded by lovely greenscape. However, I always wanted to trek in a rustic village trek surrounded by rocks and stuff. I have searched and found such places and trekked there a lot. My recent find is the Prachitgad Trek in Maharastra. It was quite a lot of fun. We had amazing trek experience over here. It was so brilliant.

    The trekking at this place was an amazing experience. The fort stay was one of the good aspects. The trek was breathtaking to say in 1 word. The surroundings and landscape are too good. The weather too makes you fall in love. The trek trails were fine, but not that easy for first time trekkers. The cost of this trek seemed fair and it was worth spending on it.

    It was a great and an amazing trek. I loved the whole trekking experience. We had such a nice and fun time there. We would like to visit here again soon. There is not much to explore in this locality apart from this trek. So, this is not a worthy choice if you are travelling here only for this trek. Try to rope in few other spots to visit in Maharastra and surroundings to make it worth the flight tickets. We did Ellora, Mumbai, this trek, and Khajuraho together. That was an awesome experience. I had a great time here and I am so looking forward to see the tour pictures. We had a great stay at all the places too.

    Prachitgad Trek in Maharashtra was spellbinding experience. We had a great trek. The trek was awesome to say the least. However, the trekking experience was ruined midway by rains. After the rains subsided a bit, we did resume our trek plan and we did have a nice experience.

    The trek is definitely brilliant and great. It was one of its kind. It was interesting and exciting. I totally loved it. As a trekker who is into trekking for 10 years now, I liked it and I feel sad for having missed such a treasure all these years. For trekkers who want to progress form beginners level to moderate, this is a nice option to try.

    The trekking experience was fine and brilliant. We had a nice experience. To start with we reached here well before the reporting time, we just roamed around and clicked pictures, and when the rest of the gang came, we all headed toward the trek. The trek is of moderate level difficulty. It was all rustic and beautiful at the same time. We had a great experience with the trek. I would love to do this trek some time again soon but with better planning.

    Prachitgad Trek in Maharashtra is a different and an unique trek. One might ask how come this trek is unique from other treks. To start with this trek isn’t the treks that we take in the Western Ghats that has beautiful greenery all over. This is rustic, historic, and poignant in its own way. That being said, the trek has a few issues too as this trek easily drains your energy if you haven’t got that great stamina. Apart from that though, the trek is an all together brilliant and memorable experience to take with friends or cousins.
