Harishchandragad is one of the best high forts near Mumbai, Maharashtra. Strong fortifications of this fort have multiple entry routes such as the Junnar gate route, Sadhale ghat, Nalichi wat, and Indore waat.

Later the fort was under the control of Moghuls. The Marathas captured it in 1747.

It was an awesome experience. I was little worried initially but, Maharashtra Desha made this a memorable one. I must say I enjoyed every moment of my trek and want to say 'Everyone must Trek'. :-) As per the Covid 19 Situation , social distancing was maintained and avinash one of the MD member always use to take care that all are Waring mask in village and keeping safe distance with localities. I really liked the support I received from MD team from the time I booked the trek, Firstly, Prasad send series of messages on whats app with enough details about the trek which made me confident. what to take, what to rent, what fitness required etc. This was really helpful . The food was also delicious the breakfast refreshments and luch they provided was tasty and complete hygiene was maintained. It was really enjoyable, memorable and great experience. I can say I have completed, achieved this trek because of our Treak Leader Rohit and Mountain girl Akansha . It was too much windy and cold. That place I had down feeling and thought I can't complete this trek with this climate condition but other side we have support of our Trek members and they were very caring and have friendly nature where we can share any problem with them . They use to regularly interact with each one. They always motivated us and gave us freedom to enjoy trek and explore new spots. Without these people's support, my trek wouldn't have been a memorable experience. Kudos to MD for making this an awesome experience. Thank you MD team.
