H  arishchandragad lies where the boundaries of Thane, Pune & Ahmednagar districts converge. There are 7 known ways to this fort.


Rajmarg: Junnar Darwaja

Rajmarga, which is currently in bad condition, was the main route to ascend Harishchandragad along the back. This route follows the same path till Khireshwar village. From here, instead of following the way to Tolar Khind, one must go along the straight path and start ascending on the slopes of Kalshya dongar. The cliff that comes after the Kalshya dongar has to be ascended. The climb has rock crumbling and lot of scree with dangerous patches in between. After this tricky ascent, one joins the Tolar khind route after the rock patch.
