Life is all about good friends and great adventures. So, let’s wander where the network is and get a hiking experience with thrilling excitement! and thrill your experience with the third highest peak in Maharashtra-Harishchandragad!

No people! it’s not related to the honest person – Harish Chandra this is something different. Physically daunting and visually rewarding!

In brief, the climbing at almost 80 degrees to a concave cliff that looks like a cobra’s hood. The scenic beautiful and alluring charming is the quaint slippy region.

Harishchandragad fort is quite ancient, with its origin dating back to the sixth century. There are caves situated all over the fort, believed to be carved out in the eleventh century. Moreover, the various temples and carvings in the caves indicate that the fort belongs to the medieval period since it is related to Shaiva, Shakta or Nath.

It is an almost 1,423 m concave fall, therefore, the main attraction of this hill fort remains the Konkankada (Konkan cliff). It is also a vertical overhang, like a cobra’s hood, providing a panoramic view of the surrounding hills and sunset under the sky. The most Mesmerizing view awaits us!

So what are you waiting for? Get an amazing experience to fill another adventurous trip in your diary.
After trekking the mesmerizing Harischandragad trek a trekker will surely have stories to narrate.

Who should attend?

HikerWolf Bhimashankar trek is limited to people up to the age of 35 years. Travellers need to be within the age limit on the date of the trip departure to be eligible to join. We strictly follow this age criterion, and can not make any exceptions. 

We feel that a narrow age group leads to better experiences for our travellers when they visit a destination and the whole trip experience is more fun since people are on the same wavelength. Plus, it is always great when people make friends and keep in touch later

Hikerwolf has become a character of a lot of travel journeys and one thing that we’re sure of is that we deliver happiness. With each trip and adventure, we’ve seen shining smiles, and an overdose of laughter packed with wistful memories. We based our foundation in 2016, and since then we have been spreading the warmth of happiness and bringing people closer to the outer lasting friendships via group tours. Hikerwolf organizes group tours, corporate trips, treks, camping events, college industrial visits, and other adventure, and travel events. How we got here Weekend trips and restaurant hoppings with his group of friends were a regular part of our Founder Smit Desai’s life during his college days. His bond with his friends was very strong, so much so that they believed that they would travel the world together. But destiny had some other plans and just like that, as they got out of college to venture into the next phase of life, everybody’s priorities started to change. New jobs, new placements, and a new set of people: a corporate lifestyle did not promise the happiness and bondings that their college buddies could provide. Although they tried catching up with their old buddies over the weekends, owing to their busy lifestyle, things didn’t quite get executed as they would have planned. While others could have sensed loneliness. Smit saw a business opportunity in this. He empathized with many others who most likely go through similar episodes and emotions in their lives. He decided to make a travel company where people could meet, make bonds, and travel as if they are travelling with a group of their old friends. The idea behind HikerWolf was born, but the journey toward the execution was not easy. Smit started and closed a few small travel ventures in 2012 before he finally decided to go big with his dream project HikerWolf in 2016. And that’s how Hikerwolf happened. Hikerwolf stirred from the same idea of bringing people together, spreading happiness, and making memories with strangers who end up becoming your friend. Our idea of spreading happiness is not only restricted to our travel ventures, we love doing the same wherever we go. Hikerwolf structures its journeys in ways that can uplift and empower the local communities across remote locations and thus make an attempt to spread happiness in their lives. So if you join us, you know that you are in for something that goes beyond travelling. Today, as Hikerwolf has evolved as a team that has a common goal as a company, we hope to instill our values through our best-curated trips and spread friendships and happiness throughout the world.
