  • Trip introduction

    Harishchandragad is an exciting climb at any time, but this itinerary takes you via Nali chi vaat, which is the most iconic route for this trek. Known to be one of the toughest, this trail goes over rocky patches, steep inclines, and some scary drops. There are boulders of all sizes along your route, and you'll be clambering over them all the way up. You'll also find spectacular views of Konkankada, which you can admire on your many breaks.

    Destination

    The highlight of the Harishchandragad trek is the Konkan Kada, the most famous cliff in this region. It stands tall with an overhang like the hood of a cobra, providing a fabulous spot for photographs. At the top of the trek is a temple with an ancient Shivlinga structure inside a cave filled with water. You can wade to the structure through waist-deep freezing cold water, but it's not easy. At night, you'll camp out here, listening to the sounds of the wild and hoping no leopards come to investigate!
