BAAN Hikers: 1 day climbing event at Irshalgad Pinnacle on 22nd Dec 2013 (Leaving 21st Dec in the night)


Dear friends,

BAAN Hikers have arranged climbing event to Irshalgad Pinnacle on 22nd December 2013 (Leaving 21st Dec in the night)


Which is open to all..!

When we talk of "Pinnacle Climbing", it refers to a technical climbing experience with equipment, ropes, helmets, etc and is treated differently from normal hikes in the hills.  Even if you are a first timer, if you have will and courage, our technically trained leaders will guide you to make it a memorable experience. We have restricted number of participants so that each participant can enjoy the thrill and adventure of climbing a pinnacle to the fullest. So hurry up and block your seat for this totally different experience.

Height: 3700 feet above MSL (Approx)                Grade: Medium

Base Village: Chowk –Irshalwadi                             Dist: Thane

Irshalgad is not a fort but actually a pinnacle. This is the reason why it hardly figures anywhere in history. Shivaji Maharaj captured the complete region of Kalyan and Bhiwandi, up to Rairi in May 1666. This fort too, must have come under the Maratha rule at that time. Irshal is the next-door neighbour to Prabalgad.


Details for the trek are as follows:-
