Dear Friends We invite you for MumbaiRangers Night Trek to Ramshej Fort on 21 Feb 2016 Leaving 20 Feb night   Some information about the event Ramshej Fort Type : Hill forts Height : 3273 ft Fort Range : Trimbakeshwar District : Nashik Grade : Easy (Max 1.5 hours Ascend)   Ramshej literally means Lord Ram’s bedstead. While in exile, Lord Ram had made this place as his residence for some time, which gives the fort its name. Nasik is an ancient city of India. References are found showing its importance in all the four Yugas.  It was known as Padmanagar in Kruta Yuga, Janasthana in Dwapar Yuga and Nasik in Kali-Yuga. On the western tip of the beautiful Ramshej Ghat in Northern Nasik, lies the marvelous Ramshej fort. Ramshej is about 14km from Nasik, while travelling  to Peth and from there it is a short trek to the fort. The fort is located at a height of 3273ft, which shows you the marvel of labor and effort that went  into making it. The best time to visit the Ramshej Fort is when there is a short dry spell during the monsoons. This helps because when it rains, the hillside suddenly  bursts into greenery and during those short drying spells in the monsoons, the soil is firm enough to climb and does not muck your shoes.   History has it, that the fort was attacked by Aurangzeb’s army, and his commanders threatened the Maratha kingdom saying that they would capture the fort  in hours but Shivaji Maharaj’s son Sambhaji resisted these attacks for 7 years. The Fort thus remained with the Marathas for a period that was longer than  the fighting lives of some of the commanders of Aurangazeb’s army who made the claim that the fort would be taken down in hours.   To See on Fort:   Ram Mandir : The way to the fort starts from its base village on the south side, and goes to the top from the east face. En route, there is a small temple of lord Ram  inside a huge cave. The cave is well maintained by the devotees and offers a nice place to stay. Inscription near the cave can be cl… Read more
