Event Lead: Mahadeo 


Padargad is a small fort with almost no ruins but just few water tanks and caves.What makes it trekker’s delight is the climb to this fort which is considered as a medium grade as it demands technical skill and equipment.

To reach the top of Padargad one has to cross a few rock patches and a chimni climb which makes it the most thrilling experience.

Once you reach atop you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the entire bhimashankar range. One can see Siddhagad, Kothligad (Peth) and Bhimashankar from here.
