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!

The experience was made even special by activities like lantern lighting and movie screening. Also, the team is extremely friendly and corporative. Had a wonderful time.
