Harishchandragad is one of the most beautiful trek in sahyadri mountains near Pune and it is also knows as trekker's paradise. There are majorly three routes to trek - Pachnai (Easy), Khireshwar (Moderate) and Nalichi vat (Difficult). Out of these three khireshwar is the preferred route by trekkers because it offers a great scenic view all the way.

 

Height: 4,665 Ft

 

Main attractions of this trek are:

 

Kedareshwar cave- A big shiva linga, hich is completely surrounded by water. Its height from the base is five feet, and the water is waist-deep. It is quite difficult to reach the Shiva Linga because the water is ice-cold.

 

Taramati- Also known as Taramanchi. This is the top most point on the fort (1429 meters).  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.

 

Caves of Harishchandragad- These caves are spread out all over the fort. Many of these are situated at the foot of Taramati peak and are the place of accommodation.

 

Nageshwar & Harishchandreshwar Temple- These temple are great antique construction, and diverse artistic works are seen on this. On the ceiling of the temple are carvings.

 

Konkada- The major attraction of Harishchandrgad. This cliff is not just vertical, it is an overhang, almost like a cobra's hood. Must visited in evening for sunset.
