TRAVOLUTION brings you Trek to Harishchandra Gadh via Khireshwar on 21-22 March (sat-sun) 2015
Fort Height: 4500 ft.
Last Date of Reg: 1th March 2015
>Harishchandragad: The fort is quite ancient, considered to be from the medieval period. The Great sage Changdev (one who created the epic Tatvasaar), used to meditate on Taramati/Rohidas in 14th century. The caves are also from the same period.Harishchandragad was captured by the Marathas in 1747 from the Moguls.
>Taramati: This is the topmost point on the fort. It is the second highest peak in Maharashtra after kalsubai. Leopards are seen in the forests beyond this peak. From here we can have a glimpse of the whole range of Naneghat and the forts near Murbad (This will be visited only if time permits.)
>Konkan Kada: The most interesting point on this fort is this cliff, which has always fascinated many people from many years. The cliff faces west and looks down upon the Konkan with a breathtaking view of the surrounding region and sunset. This cliff is not just vertical; it is an overhang, almost like a cobra's hood.
>Kedareshwar: The cave of Kedareshwar has a big Shivlinga, which is totally surrounded by water.
