Heavenly Harihar Fort Trek
August 27 | 12AM
99 Hikers bring to you a heavenly trek to Harihar fort, which is built on a triangular prism of rock and is a perfect location to go and unwind. It's a beautiful location for trekking. Its three faces and two edges are absolutely vertical (90 degrees). One metre wide rocky staircase is carved out for ascending & descending the fort. There are 117 steps in total. After the first rocky staircase, there is an overhang with a sheer drop. The view from the top is excellent. There is a small temple of Lord Hanuman and Lord Shiva on the plateau. A small pond is there in front of this temple. One of the vertical drops of the fort facing the Nirgudpada village is called 'Scottish kada', perhaps because it was climbed for the first time in November 1986 by Doug Scott, the legendary Himalayan mountaineer.
