information

about place

Harihar is a unique fort in the Sahyadri, built on a triangular prism of rock. Its three faces and two edges are vertical. The third edge is inclined at an angle of about 75 degrees. 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.

While climbing the fort, we come across a rock-sheet, which has got a one-metre-wide rocky staircase carved in it. Also, many grooves have been carved here for additional support. After climbing these steps, we get up to the entrance door. There is a cavern ahead of this door. Again we come across few steps after a short distance walk from this cavern. On climbing these steps we reach the main entrance door of this fort. The fort has got a tapering plateau with a raised level in the middle.

Once you make it to the top, enthral in the beauty of the elongated plateau which holds a small beautiful temple of Lord Hanuman & Lord Shiva. A small pond is there in front of this temple.
Making headway from here we come across a palace having two rooms in it. 10 to 12 persons can be accommodated in this palace. There are five cisterns along one side of the palace, one of which has water suitable for drinking.

Harihar Fort trek is one of the must-try treks in the Western Ghats and makes for a great weekend getaway near Trimbakeshwar as well as Nashik.

history

The British Officer, Capt. Briggs described it as a wonderful route and wrote: ‘Words can give no idea of its dreadful steepness. It is perfectly straight for, I suppose 200 feet and can only be compared to a ladder over a height of this nature’.

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.

This was one of the forts surrendered by Shahaji from Bijapur to the Moghul general Khan Zaman of the forces of Shahjahan. It surrendered to the British in 1818 after the fall of Trimbak.
