Heavenly Harihar fort Trek

Harihar fort is built on a triangular prism of rock. Its three faces and two edges are absolutely vertical (90 degrees). The third edge towards the west is inclined at an angle of 75 degrees. One meter wide rocky staircase is carved out for ascending & descending the fort. There are 117 steps in all. After the first rocky staircase, there is an overhang with a sheer drop. The view from the top is excellent. There is a small temple of Lord Hanuman and Lord Shiva on the plateau.

A small pond is there in front of this temple. One of the vertical drops of the fort facing the Nirgudpada village is called 'Scottish kada', perhaps because it was climbed for the first time in November 1986 by Doug Scott, the legendary Himalayan mountaineer.

Dear 99Hikers team,

Thank you for the beautiful and mesmerizing experience of seeing fireflies in their natural environment. We will always cherish the experience.

We would like to give a few points of improvement as to the services and amenities provided:

1. We were a little disappointed as a group of 108 was way to big and only with 02 team leaders to handle such a group. in such a short trip, it was not possible to even get to interact with others in the group.

2. Such a large group required more than two team leaders as it was clear to us that it was difficult for 99hikers team to handle 108 people at a go with ease.

3. There was no meet and greet session to acquaint everyone with the agenda before starting our journey, therefore, everyone was clueless as to how we were to proceed. There was time in the bus to announce the agenda but it was not utilized to do the same.

4. Tents were not assigned to campers beforehand so it led to a lot of confusion and took up a lot of time to assign tents after reaching the campsite. We loved the tent facilities provided of course, they were well-built, comfortable and in a good location with the river view. However, the washroom facilities could be improved upon.

All in all, a good experience, but a lot of room to improve upon, especially with regards to connecting with your patrons.

Thank you once again for a wonderful camping experience.

Hope to be able to join other fun activities by 99Hikers.

All the very best to your team!
