Dear All,

Brief Introduction about Harishchandragad:Height: 1412 meters (4510 feet)
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.

Kedareshwar: 
The cave of Kedareshwar has a big Shivlinga, which is totally surrounded by water.
