Dear All Adventure Lovers,
We at SMALL-STEPS Group, glad to invites you ALL for every trekkers Dream Monsoon Trek TO IRSHALGAD Fort ON 12th July 2015 (Sunday)
Little info about The Fort :
Name : IRSHALGAD Fort
Type: Hill Fort
Height: 3700 FT above MSL (Approx)
Base Village: Chauk-Irshalwadi
IRSHALGAD: Irshalgad is situated in the Karjat Region. Other forts in this region include Prabalgad, Kalawantin and Malanggad . Actually Irshal is not a fort but it’s a pinnacle. 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. As mentioned above, Irshal is a pinnacle. There is a water tank on the route from the Irshal plateau to the peak. From there, we reach the needle hole near the top through a simple rock-climbing route. Proceeding little ahead, we see a water tank to the left and a cave to the right. This water is suitable for drinking. The route, which climbs up from near the needle hole goes to the top of the pinnacle. To reach the top of the pinnacle, it is essential to have artificial rock climbing equipment (we are not going to climb top). From the top we can see the forts of Prabalgad, Matheran, Chanderi, Malanggad, Karnala and Manikgad.
