Overview

A thrilling adventure in the mountain peaks of the Sahyadri range, this trek to Harishchandragad will take you along a fairly demanding route, making it perfect for trekkers with some prior experience. After a fairly gradual climb in the initial part of the trek, you'll make your way over steep inclines to reach the top of the mountains. The route will be punctuated with large boulders, barren mountain faces and patches of sprawling vegetation and forests. After reaching your destination at 4,691 feet in the sky, you'll catch amazing views of the descending valley with the Malshej Ghat and the Pimpalgaon Dam in the distance. At Harishchandragad, you'll explore historic caves dating back centuries, an ancient temple of Lord Shiva and vantage points on the edges of the mountain cliff.
