• Trip introduction

    This trek to Harishchandragad Fort takes you over the rugged terrain that is typical of the Sahyadris. You’ll negotiate steep slopes and rocky outcrops to summit to the top and witness a gorgeous sunset from Konkankada. There is also a stunning sunrise to be witnessed from the top of Taramati peak where the marshmallow clouds sail only a few feet above. You'll camp at the iconic Konkankada cliff that looks like cobra’s hood, and will return the next day.

    IMPORTANT: This is a moderate to challenging trek and is not recommended for first-time trekkers. This trek does NOT take the tougher route via Nali chi Vaat, but it is still suitable only for trekkers with prior experience.
