Trek to Harishchandragad

Two day trek to Harishchandragad was totally a different experience, this time we joined with Giridarshan trekking club (GTC), its was a awesome experience with GTC team
People from different walks of life joined this trek. We met in Shivajinagar bus stand on 24 Nov 07, around 28 people have turned up.The trek was wonderfully planned and well organized, around 4:45 we reached the summit, then we went to Konkan kada to see the breath taking view and sun set.

We stayed in the cave, next morning after break fast we left to the base village.

Harishchandragad Paradise for Trekkers
There are 3 peaks in Harishchandragad namely Rohidas , Taramati and Harishchandra.

Taramati peak is the highest one in the fort. Many peaks , fort and other beautiful places like Malshej Ghat, Jivdhan, Nane Ghat, Ratangad, Kalsubai etc. can be seen. There are some old caves on Taramati which are used by trekkers to rest and relax. A beautiful temple of 'Harishchandra' is pride for the fort. The temple is very old and some sculptures can also been read. It is said that Sant Changdev stayed here for some time and completed his manuscript - 'Tatwasaar'. The Nandi and Shivling in the temple are really wonderful. A cave nearby is always full of very cold water.
