Hadsar Fort:
Fort Hadsar, also known as Parvatgad, was constructed during the Satvaahanas and was heavily inhabited during that period. It is located on the outskirts of Ahmednagar (known commonly as Nagar) to control the trade route passing through Naneghat. Documentary evidences show that Hadsar was one of the forts exchanged in the 1637 treaty between Shahaji Raje and the Mughals. In 1818 the British forces conquered Junnar and the forts in this region. Like most other cases, main features of this fort were demolished by the british during their attack and later.

Chavand Fort:
The fort was looted and destroyed by the British upon siege. This is one of the forts known as the 'Famous 5'. Chavaand, Hadsar, Shivneri, Jivdhan and Naneghat form the Famous 5 trek. The fort has remnants of construction that are more than 800 years old. Medieval period Malik Ahmed founded the Nizam Dynasty in 1485. He was the first Nizamshah who acquired the fort of Chavand after the dissolution of the Bahmani Empire. The seventh Nizamshah was Second Burhanshah. His grandson Bahadurshah was imprisoned here in 1594. Bahadurshah was the nephew of Chandbibi, a renowned personality from the same period. She played an important role in helping him to achieve the throne.
In 1636 Shahajiraje, father of Shivaji Maharaj, signed a treaty with the Moghals, in which the Moghals got Chavand. Shivaji Maharaj named the fort as “Prasannagad”.

I have had travelled a lot with my friends & trek to Kalsubai was my first trek with unknown people/group.
I was afraid that it'll be difficult for me to get involve because; I always took more time to trust unknown people.
But you guys wore awesome, i didn't got to know when i was involved with all of you.

I would love to do more treks with group like this. I have found myself back after a long time. :D

Thanks Team Kayakers for changing my perception. :)

Thank you #Kayakers for a wonderful experience of Kayaking � You have a great and enthusiastic team in line. I would specially mention and thank Varsha for her outstanding efforts throughout the day and Mangesh for keeping everything organised. For me this was the best outing in Pune. And the only reason I rated 4 was the bus; which could have been better rest from Food, Refreshment, Sport Experience and Trainers you guys have nailed it in each way.

Excellent adventure group with excellent people. The best thing about this group is that all the organizers and the fellow experienced trek mates take along everyone with them. Whether you are a first time trekker or a pro. If you are here, they will make sure you complete that trek with utmost satisfaction on your face. I have done many treks with them and forward for more adventure... :)
