Irshal means a pinnacle and gad means a fort. A fort that is unlikeliest to be known as a fort would be this one. Hardly found anywhere in History, Irshalgad may have been under the Maratha rule when Shivaji Maharaj captured the regions of Kalyan and Bhiwandi.
The trek chooses to be green and amuse us with its variety of flowers throughout the climbing route.
