A trek which is on the list of every avid trekker. On this weekend Team Mapping Journeys wishes to give you an experience which is going to stay in your memory forever. We promise that after this trek, every traveller will have a story to  tell and feel proud of.

Give yourself a chance to :

1. Stand atop the 2nd highest peak of Maharashtra - Taramati 4688ft. 

2. Camp 3500ft above sea level right on top of the famous Kokankada.

3. Get mesmerized by the cave of Kedareshwar and Harishchandreshwar Temple.

4.  Share travel stories by the sunset.

 

 

The carvings on the temples of Nageshwar, Harishchandreshwar Temple, and in the cave of Kedareshwar indicate that the fort belongs to the medieval period. The fort was also under the control of the Mughals and was later captured by Marathas it in 1747.On a clear day one can see Baleshwar, Aajoba, Ratangad, Katrabai Pass, Bhairavgad, Nakta, Malshej Ghat, Naneghat, Kunjargad, Kaladgad and even Kalasubai. One of the major attractions at the fort is Kokankada - a concave cliff facing west. Kokankada is a concave semicircular wall standing tall at 3500ft approx. When viewed from the side its a treat for any traveller's eye.
