Some details about Harishchandragad and Konkan kada:
Harishchandragad is a hill fort in the Ahmednagar region of India. Its
history is linked with that of Malshej Ghat, and it has played a major
role in guarding the surrounding region. The height of the fort is
4671 ft MSL. The most interesting point on this fort is this cliff,
which has always fascinated many people from many years. The cliff
faces west and looks down upon the Konkan. From here, one can have a
breathtaking view of the surrounding region and the setting sun. This
cliff is not just vertical, but it is an overhang, almost like a
cobra’s hood. The Konkankada, a unique formation in the Sahyadris, is
really tough and a challenge for the trekkers. This is a semicircular
cliff of about 2,000 ft straight drop + 1000 ft slant fall in the
Konkan plains. The surrounding grandeur and beauty of the plains and
the mountains leaves us totally spellbound. It is one of the highest
direct fall cliffs to be found in Maharashtra and Western Ghats. This
is a combination of thrill and bliss that every true adventurer would
say ‘YES!!!’ to…
Rappelling, also known as abseiling is an act of descending a mountain
face by sliding down a rope, which is attached to a body harness and
fastened to an overhead projection, with sufficient friction provided
as to make the speed of the descend controllable.
Detail of the Rappelling:
To rappel the Konkankada at least once in a life time is a dream of
almost every adventure freak in Sahyadris. It is the most thrilling
and spellbound activity offered in the Sahyadris range.
Rappelling will be conducted in 4 stages to complete 1800ft.
