Harishchandragad is a hill fort in the Ahmednagar district of India. It is known for its scenic beauty and charm. The fort is quite ancient. Remnants of Microlithic man have also been discovered here. Its origin is said to have been in the 6th century, during the rule of Kalachuri dynasty.

Altitude: 4650 ft. Approx.

Major Attractions:

Kedareshwar Cave – There is the huge cave of Kedareshwar in which there is a big Shiva Linga, which is completely surrounded by water. Its height from the base is five feet, and the water is waist-deep. here are sculptures carved out in the cave. In the monsoon it is not possible to reach this cave, as a huge stream flows across the way.

KokanKada – This cliff faces west and looks down upon the Konkan. It provides outstanding views of the surrounding region.

Caves on Harishchandragad – These caves are spread out all over the fort. Many of these are situated at the foot of Taramati peak and are the place of accommodation. A few are near the temple, whereas some are near the citadel and some far away in the forests.

Trekking with wandering souls was a safe and good experience. The team leads were genuinely caring and made sure of everyone's safety despite having a large group.The trek was well designed and it also had an introduction session which served as an icebreaker and made the batch more friendly towards eachother. The crowd was decent and blending, you can meet and make new friends. It was my first time trekking with a group and I would join them soon 💪🏽👍🏽

It was my first trekking experience and I am glad I planned it with the best. Overall experience was very great. The weather, the people, the view everything at its best. Wandering souls made my first trekking experience memorable. Looking forward to planning more trips with them.
