About Trek:
Type : Hill forts  Fort Range : Karjat  Grade : Hard    Base Village: Sandshi
The cave of Bahiri :The caves as such are sacred as the Lord of Bahiri resides here. From the caves, we can have a glance of the terrifying beauty of peaks of Sahyadri. We can also see the beautiful twins forts of Rajmachi, Shrivardhan and Manranjan. Here one can use the cooking vessels kept in the water in the cave. They should be kept back by cleaning after using them.
An important part of this thrilling trek is the cave, which is situated on the other side of fort, and the way goes through dense vegetation. One should proceed from here by taking support of the rocks and should be quite careful. Ascending the rock patch where a bamboo and a rope are used to climb to the caves.However, if one wishes to go to the Caves, then one will have to be a bit careful covering the rest patch! It’s a thrill….enjoy it!
Kalakrai Pinnacle :This pinnacle is quite famous and frequently visited by mountaineers. The way to the left of the ridge takes to the cliff, but a rope and rock climbing equipment is necessary.
