How about mind blowing scenery, loads of water and beautiful nature in monsoon... to tip it off..how about a whole hearted Bath in Hot water springs after that?? Sounds Interesting? So pack your bags for this sensational trek.
"OUTDOOR ADVENTURE MANAGEMENT" is glad to announce “Trek to SUDHAGAD and a brief visit to Hot water springs at Unhere” on 15th July, 2012 in the Pali-Khopoli region.
Sudhagad is one of the ancient forts in Sahyadri. It was the glory of Bhor state. According to the Puranas, Sage ‘Bhrugu’ had stayed here and he had established the temple of Goddess ‘Bhorai’ on this fort.
Sudhagad was included in ‘Swarajya’ in 1648. It is described in old records as follows:
“Malavji Naik Karake put the ladders in Sakharadara. Initially, Jadhav and Saranayak both climbed the fort under the guidance of chieftain ‘Maloji Bhosale’. After that Haibatrao climbed the fort. 25 soldiers went ahead and killed the guards. Further the chief of the fort was killed in anguish and the fort was conquered.”
Shivaji Maharaj renamed Bhorapgad as Sudhagad. Later Sambhaji met Akbar (the rebellious son of Aurangjeb) in the ‘Pachchapur village’ situated at the base of this fort. Annaji Datto, Balaji Aavji Chitnis, his son Aavji Ballal and Hiroji Pharjand were all important persons in ‘Ashta-Pradhan Mandal’ of Shivaji Maharaj. Sambhaji has killed all of them in ‘Parli’ village near Sudhagad.
