DGS : Durgdarshan has arranged two days Trek to Sudhgad on 15 and 16 Aug, 2015
Base Village : Thakurwadi
Region : Pali.
At a height of 2200 feet,
Sudhagad alias Bhorapgad has a huge platue of around 50 acres which offers a wonderful camping site. It has a punishment point called Takmak tok, an ancient Bhoraidevi temple and a grand Mahadrwaja. There is a secred chor daarwaja near the Mahadarwaja which if accessible can be used to reach the bottom of the Mahadarwaja bastions. From the Sudhagad platue you can see the ominously standing Tel baila which looks like a giant movie screen rising up from the platue opposite the Sudhagad platue. The nearest from from here is Ghangad and Sarasgad. If the skies are clear Dukes nose, Koraigad are also visible in the northeast behind Tel-baila.
The fort lies in the Raigad region. After Pen on the Mumbai Goa highway you come to Pali which is also famous for one of the Ashtavinayak temples.
Sudhagad fort is believed to have been in existence since 200 BC. The Bhora devi temple on top is said to have been built by Sage Bhrug Rishi. The rulers of Bhor dynasty were worshippers of Bhoraidevi. The first reference of Sudhagad is in the year 1436 when theBahamani Sultan won over the fort. In 1657 the fort came under the control of Marathas and the name was changed from Bhorapgad to Sudhagad. Once upon a time this fort was also a contender of being the capital of Hindavi raj but lost the race because of the strategic location of Raigad
