About Place

Harihar Fort, also known as Harshgad, is a historic fort located in Maharashtra’s Nashik district. Several trekking enthusiasts visit this fort for A new and refreshing experience. It appears rectangular from the base village and is situated on a triangular rock.

Harihar Fort trek is one of the must-try treks in the Western Ghats and makes for a great weekend getaway. It brings to you a different type of stone staircase which has been cut for providing trekkers with a pocket like a grip to climb easily.
One has to reach the fort through a 200 ft. high rock-cut staircase inclined at an 80-degree angle.

The fort is situated amidst the huge Vaitarna dam and the Trimbakeshwar mountain ranges offer stunning views of the area around.

One of the fort’s vertical sides facing the Nirgudpada Village got the name ‘Scottish Kada’ because it was first climbed by “Doug Scott” in 1986. He was a popular Himalayan mountaineer, who took about two days to ascend to the top of the cliff, which stands at
170 m.
