History:

 

Panhala – Pavankhind -Vishalgad 

 

Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was under siege of Siddi Johar on Panhala fort from 2nd March 1660. The siege lasted long and all food stocks had finished and made things difficult for Shivaji Maharaj. It was impossible to defeat the 30000 soldiered troop of Siddi. Shivaji Maharaj with some 600 mavalas decided to escape to Vishalgad, 65 kms away. It was Ashadi Pournima, with heavy rains falling. Chatrapati Shivaji Raje informed Siddi that he would surrender hence Siddi troops were little careless. Taking advantage Shivaji Maharaj escaped from Panhala. He wasn’t safe till he reached Vishalgad. Some how Siddi’s troops spotted Shivaji Raje’s escape, he immediately sent horsed troops behind him and they got hold of Shivaji, who was later brought to Siddi’s camp. But it was Raja Shivaji’s game plan; person whom they had caught was not Shivaji Raje, but Siva Kashid Nhavi who was immediately killed. Siddi somehow came to know that Shivaji Maharaj was on his way to Vishalgad, and so sent troops behind him. Shivaji Raje knew that Siddi’s troops were following him. Baji Prabhu, Chatrapati Shivaji’s loyal sardar decided to stay in Ghod Khind with 300 mavalas, a col were mountain ridges near Vishalgad unite and was the only way to Vishalgad then. Baji Prabhu with his 300 mavalas had guerilla warfare at Ghodkhind and held the Siddis troops there. They fought bravely till their death. It was only after Baji heard the canon fire indicating safe reach of Shivaji Maharaj at Vishalgad, he gave his life. It was 21 hour continuous journey from Panhala to Vishalgad. Story didn’t end here; Chatrapati Shivaji Raje had to fight his way to Vishalgad. Vishalgad is a fort difficult to conquer, difficult to lay siege. Also even if siege was laid, one would have enough time to escape to Konkan. Siddi was building siege on Vishalgad, but Shivaji Raje with his diplomatic trick made Adil Shah bring back Siddi Johar.

Dear All,

We @ शिखर वेध have planned a one day Trek 2 Anjaneri fort & Pandav Leni

Hope 2 cu on trek with me ;-)
Details r as follows
.
Brief Introduction about Anjaneri :
.

Height: ~ 4200 feets
Grade:  Easy
Time: ~ Maximum 2 hrs from Anjaneri
Location: Trimbakeshwar

Anjaneri :

The fort of Anjaneri, being the birthplace of lord ‘Hanuman’, has a great historical importance. Lord Hanuman was the son of‘Pavan’ (the wind) and ‘Anjani’, and hence the fort is called as‘Anjaneri’. Anjaneri is one of the important forts in the ranges of Tryambakeshwar near Nasik.

On the way from Anjaneri village to the fort some carvings can be seen in the caves near the steps. The carvings are intriguing and eye catching. The caves and the inscriptions are believed to be from the Jain followers.
The temple of ‘Anjani Mata’, a big marvelous temple devoted to the mother of Lord Hanuman, is another attraction. The temple is quite big. It is a proper place to accommodate on the fort.

At a certain distance from this temple two different ways can be seen. The way to left hand side takes us directly to ‘Seeta cave’ within 10 minutes. This cave is made up of two rooms. 10 to 12 people can stay here comfortably. There are many carvings inside the cave.
Another way takes us directly to citadel, where one more temple of ‘Anjani Mata’ can be seen. It takes 20 minutes to reach this temple. This temple is also quite big. The perimeter of the fort is very large.

Dear All,

We @ शिखर वेध, has arranged a day trek to Avachitgad near Roha …

Hope to c u on trek :-)

Details r as follows

Brief Introduction about Avchitgad: –

Height: 300 metre
Grade: Easy …
Time: ~ Maximum 1.5 hrs from Medha, Base Village
Location: Roha, Raigad District

The city of Roha is situated on the banks of Kundalika River. Avchitgad is situated in the mountain ranges around Roha. Nicely tucked away from the main Shayadri range this is a rather unexplored fort (as per trekkeres are concerned). This region is beautiful, and the fort was one of the rich forts of Maharashtra. Dense woods along the mountain have made it bit difficult to ascend to the top.

Fascinating Spot: –

The main entrance to the fort is still in good condition. The bastion on the way from Medhe is in much better state. It was used for keeping a watch on the surrounding region. As we proceed further from the main entrance, we come across the remnants of old constructions on a neighboring hillock.
There is a beautiful dodecahedron (16 sided) shaped lake on the top. Near to it is a statue of Lord Khandoba. The fort is not much wide, but stretches long enough. It takes about two hours to see the fort. The forest around the fort is dense and the fauna comprises wild hogs, leopards, foxes, monkeys, etc.

From the top of Avchitgad we can have a glimpse of Telbaila, Sudhagad, Sarasgad, Korigad to the Noth-East & Dhangad, Raigad and Savashna Ghat on the South – East side. All these forts lie within a 25 km radius of this fort.

This is a best monsoon trek.

Brief Introduction about Kalsubai : -
.

Height: ~ 5400 feet
Grade:  Medium
Time: ~ Maximum 3 hrs from Bari
Location: Igatpuri

Kalsubai is the highest peak of the Sahyadris, the Everest of Maharashtra. At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view.The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramsej, Harihargad, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Vishramgad, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabhargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.
Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top.
