  • Trip introduction

    This 2 day trek to Irshalgad lets you experience the wilderness of the Western Ghats at night, and includes camping and trekking, making it a complete adventure. You'll start the trek in the evening, just after sunset, and will navigate the forested trails and rocky terrain with the light of your torch and the moon overhead. You'll hear the hooting owls and the eerie sounds of crickets and grasshoppers as you climb. At the top, you can enjoy the views and camp in tents at night. In the morning, you'll trek to the pinnacle to witness a gorgeous sunrise over the surrounding peaks.

    Destination

    The Irshalgad Fort stands at an astounding height of approximately 3700 feet, and dates back to the 16th century. It is the sister fort of Prabalgad, and you'll be able to see the fort from here. At night, you'll stay at Irshalwadi, a quaint village at the foot of the pinnacle. The path to the top is fairly well-defined, but you'll have some fun navigating the rocky patches while you climb.
