Dear All,
We @ Shikhar Vedh are glad to invite you for Thrilling Trek to  Bhairavgad (Moroshi) on Sunday, 17th November 2013

General Information:
Bhairavgad is a rigid pinnacle which can be seen while traveling through Malshej Ghat near Moroshi. This trek is excellent combination of trekking plus mild rock climbing which gives you idea of Sahyadri rocks. While ascending just before stiff wall there is one water cistern. Ultimate challenge of the trek is climbing of wall shown in above picture. There are two ways to climb this wall. One way is right side of the wall which is quite tough and is recently bolted by safe climbing initiative India. Other way to climb is from left side which goes through broken steps and gives thrill of rock climbing (We will follow this route). After reaching top we get beautiful view of entire Malshej Ghat.
