Why Harihar should be your next trekking destination this monsoon?
Harihar fort / Harshagad is a fort located 48 km from Igatpuri, Nashik district, of Maharashtra. It is an important fort in Nashik district and was constructed to look upon the trade route through Gonda Ghat. It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps.
A wide, safe trekking path starts from the hillock north of the Nirgudpada. It passes through the scrub forest till it reaches an open ridge which is connected to the fort. It takes about an hour to reach the scarp of the hill on which the fort is situated. The ascent through the 60 m rock-cut steps is wonderful. It is like a stone ladder placed at 60 degrees along the scarp. The steps are worn out at many places yet the holes on either side of the steps are conveniently cut for holding onto. After reaching the main entrance, the paths take a left traverse and again helical rock-cut steps are to be climbed, which are steeper than the earlier. the steps finally end with a narrow entrance. At many places, the steps are very narrow that, only a single person can climb at a time.
