Trek to Harishchandragad | Trekking in Sahyadris | Part 1

Harishchandragad is a hill fort in the Ahmednagar district of India. It is one of the best trek in the Sahyadris of Maharashtra.

Region: Malshej ghat
District: Ahmednagar
Range: Harishchandragad
Height: 4671 feet
Grade: Moderate
Duration: 2 days

Features:
Saptatirtha Pushkarni
Kedareshwar Cave
Harishchandreshwar Temple
Konkan Kada
Taramati Peak

The main attraction of this hill fort remains the Konkan Kada (Konkan cliff), an almost 1,423 m concave fall. It is a vertical overhang, like a cobra’s hood, providing a panoramic view of the surrounding hills and an enchanting sunset. A little further away on the mountain is the Taramti peak, the third highest peak in Maharashtra, providing a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountain ranges and an ideal setting to bask in the golden canopy of the rising sun.

FROM MUMBAI

Khireshwar (Tolar Khind)

Mumbai -via Local- Kalyan -via ST Bus- Khubi phata -Walk on gravel road- Khireshwar

-Catch a local for Kalyan (on Central Line).
-From Kalyan Station, go to the Kalyan ST depot is just besides the station. Catch any ST(lal daba) going towards Alephata (via Malshej Ghat)
-Get a ticket for Khubi Phata.
-Khubi Phata is just 5 mins after the ghat ends. At the ghat end, you have few shops and a check point. This will be the land mark to identify that Khubi Phata is 5 min away.
-Get down at Khubi Phata and start walking on the 5 km long dam to the base village Khireshwar.
-Once you reach the base village Khireshwar, still there is a km more to the start of the trek trail.

Tolar Khind
Grade: Moderate

From Khubi phata, 5 km walk on the gravel road of dam will lead to Khireshwar village, and from here a km more will take you to the start of the trail. The trail is a prominent path is goes towards Tolar khind . After around 2.5 hours of gradual ascent you will each Tolar khind. Then there is a 100 feet rock patch with rock cut for step. Its tricky but not difficult, it does not require any technical climb as such. After one more similar patch, you will reach the plateau. Then there is after a 45 min of walk on the plateau you will reach the temple.

Note : The trail is a very prominent path, however if you don’t have confidence then hire a guide from Khireshwar village.

Stay:
At top, you can stay in one of the many available cave. You can carry you own tent camp out in open. In monsoon and winter, we prefer cave for its warmth. In summer, camping out is fun.

Food:
As villagers are frequent to the temple, villager from Panchnai have there small shops where one can order locally prepared food not fancy but adequate.
