Trekगुरु are glad to invite you all for Thrilling Night trek to SARASGAD pali.
Sarasgad is in Pali village near Nagothane. Pali village is also famous for Ashtavinayak ganpati. This fort is situauted just behind the Pali ashta vinayak temple. The fort is really very important for protection of the surrounding region as well as the Ashtavinayak temple.
Nothing much is written about this fort in History. Sarasgad fort got the importance because of the Sudhagad fort which was chosen as the capital of Maratha kingdom by Shivaji Maharaj but later the honor was offered to Raigad fort.
Let me tell you something Sarasgad fort was never won or destroyed by british army, till independece Sarasgad was under Bhor sansthan. Sarasgad is easily recognizable because of its four pinnacles. You can locate Sudhagad , Tailbaila and Korigad from the top of the fort.
The way to reach Sarasgad is not that difficult except in rainy season when the Rock staircase steps and few rock patches becomes slippery.
The Sarasgad is famous for its Rock cut staircase.
