  • Trip introduction

    Perfect for adventure enthusiasts and experienced trekkers, the trek to Prachitgad is of the most interesting treks in the Sahyadris owing to the route. This is a challenging but rewarding trek that's not for the faint-hearted. This is a truly off-beat adventure in Maharashtra which is incomparable to the other treks in the area.

    Destination

    Located on the mid-western border of Chandoli Wild Life Sanctuary, the Prachitgad trek is one of the most adventurous in Maharashtra. The original approach to the Prachitgad fort was through a forest, close to Koynanagar, but is now part of the Sahyadri Tiger Reserve, and cannot be traversed. The route that is used now is from the Konkan side with an ascent that takes around 4 hours through thick forest and scree, with a steep gradient.
