Dear trekkers and routine breakers,
Another beautiful trek with lots of greenery & tons of water....spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valleys.... its trekking time once again… Gear up for another must see place with mind-blowing scenery, waterfalls, plateaus and much more...
We are glad to announce that "Outdoor Adventure Management" is organizing a “Trek to Asheri Gad” on Sunday 11th August 2013 in the Palghar range.
More about the destination:
Of all the small forts scattered around the palghar region, Asheri can be termed as the "Elder brother" due to its massiveness of it's size and height. As it covers a huge area the fort looks impressively strong. History mentions that Bhojraj, a descendant of the Shilahar Dynasty built this fort. Hence it can be assumed that this fort is at least 800 years old. The Portuguese rebuilt this fort after they captured it during their rule. In 1737, Peshwa won this fort during his campaign of the Konkan and in 1818 this fort came under the British rule.
It’s a one day trek but just to enjoy more we’ll start traveling in night of 10th August, to start trekking early in the morning.
