About Harihar Fort:

 

Harihar fort / Harshagad is a fort located in, Nashik, Maharashtra. It is an important fort in Nashik district and was constructed to look upon the trade route through Gonda Ghat. It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps. Harihar fort was built during the Yadava period. It was surrendered by Shahaji Raje Bhosale to Khan Zamam in 1636 along with Trymbak and other Poona forts. The fort was captured by Captain. Briggs in 1818 along with the other 17 forts.

There are two base villages of the fort, Harshewadi, and Nirgudpada. The Harshewadi is 13 km from Trymbakeshwar. The climb from Harshewadi is more easier than from the Nirgudpada. A wide, safe trekking path starts from the hillock north of the Nirgudpada. It passes through scrub forest till it reaches an open ridge which is connected to the fort. It takes about an hour to reach the scarp of the hill on which the fort is situated.The ascend through the 60 mtr rock-cut steps is wonderful. It is like a stone ladder placed at 60 degrees along the scarp. The steps are worn out at many places yet the holes on either side of the steps are conveniently cut for holding onto. After reaching the main entrance, the paths take a left traverse and again helical rock-cut steps are to be climbed, which are steeper than the earlier. the steps finally end with a narrow entrance. At many places, the steps are very narrow that, only a single person can climb at a time. Accommodation is possible on the fort as well as in the local villages.

 

Major Attractions:

  • Night Trek full of adventure
  • Steep steps which are safe and easy to climb
  • Amazing view from the top of the fort
  • Thrilling trek to feed your adventurous soul on each and every step.
