.
Interested people do join us …
Hope 2 c u on trek !!!Brief Introduction abt Raigad:-
Height:Abt 2900 ft
Grade:Easy
Time:~2 hrs from Pachad near Mahad
Location:Raigad Range”Fort Raigad is much more than a mere tourist spot. It is a sacred place of pilgrimage, which has left an imprint of the grand vision of Hindavi Swarajya as cherished by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.”
Fort Raigad was the capital of the most illustrious Maratha sovereign,nurtured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.It is a monument of his prophetic vision of Hindavi Swarajya.

Sightseeing :

The first main place on the fort is the main door – ‘Maha Darawaja‘. After the main door, Ganga sagar and some remains of the palace can be seen. Hirkani Buruj can also be seen and one doesn’t believe the heroic deeds of Hirkani (she came down the fort barefooted at night from this point). The famous ‘Takmak Tok’ or place for life punishment – is on the north side. It’s thrilling to stand near Takmak Tok which is always full of breeze. One can see the ammunition store here. The marketplace on the fort is worth watching and history lovers spend time here recalling the great warrior.

The statue of ‘Shivaji Maharaj’ is situated at the center of the fort. The Samadhi of Maharaj is also very beautiful and one can remember Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and his contribution and full dedication to Swaraj. The other places to visit on the fort are Jagdishwar Temple, Koli Lake, Shirkai Temple etc. The view of ‘Lingana’ is also wonderful.

.

Details as follows:

Brief intro about the forts as follows:
Rohida Fort (3661 feet)

…This is a very important fort in Bhor area (Pune District) situated on Bhor – Mahabaleshwar mountain range. This fort impressed because of its long natural fortwall and well constructed entrance gate. We need to pass through three gates before we reach the top of this fort. First Mahadarwaja is circular type, on Second darwaja there is carving of Lion and legendary animal ‘Sharabh’. On the third gate there are carved images of Lotus, fish and images of Sun & Moon on the upper side.On Fort we can see a water tank, Rohideshwar temple, carved caves, ruins of fortifications & old buildings including grain storage, sadar (main office). There are seven Buruj on Rohida out of which Fatte Buruj, Waghjai & Shiravle Buruj are well constructed to fight with the enemy.

Raireshwar (4589 feet) :- Tableland of Pachgani is very famous but higher and longer tableland is the plateau of Rayari. It is 8 km away from Bhor. It looks beautiful in the monsoon. Raireshwar was considered to develop as a hill station & in real sense it is a hill station.  Raireshwar is historically important, Shivaji Maharaj took the Oath of Swaraj in a temple of Lord Shiva. After this he kept on conquering forts and established Swaraj. This temple is situated rather deep in the interior, hence not seen in first glance. A temple surrounded by hills, surroundings covered by natural beauties. Stone structured temples of the 16th century are the main attraction of Raireshwar.Kenjalgad ( 4273 feet) is situated on the Mandhardev spur of the Mahadev range eleven miles north-west of Wai. It is a flat-topped hill of an irregular oval shape, about 250 yards long and one hundred yards wide. Khelanja fort is said to have been built by the Bhoj Rajas of Panhala who flourished in the twelfth century.

Grade:Easy
Time: ~ 2 hrs from Pachnai, Base Village
Location:Nagar region
Harishchandragad: The fort is quite ancient, considered to be from the Medieval period. The Great sage Changdev (one who created the epic Tatvasaar), used to meditate on Taramati/Rohidas in 14th century. The caves are also from the same period. Harishchandragad was captured by the Marathas in 1747 from the Moguls.

Konkan Kada:
 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 with a breathtaking view of the surrounding region and sunset. This cliff is not just vertical; it is an overhang, almost like a cobra’s hood.
