Dear All, BHATKANTI MAHARASHTRACHI  have arranged a two day Thrilling Trek to Harishchandragad Via Nalichi wat, from 20 & 21st february 2016 Harishchandragad is a hill fort in the Ahmednagar region of India. Its history is linked with that of Malshej Ghat,kothale village and it has played a major role in guarding and controlling the surrounding region. Ascending Harishchandragad via Nalichivaat is one of the most exciting and exploring trek which test your endurance and Stamina to the Core , Trekkers paradise Harishchandra fort is best at any particular season .. Mesmerizing Kokan Kada and the Kedarashwar Temple makes the journey fruitful, in its own manner.   Konkad Kada- This cliff faces west and looks down upon the Konkan. It provides a scenic view of the surrounding region and the setting sun. The cliff has an overhang, but has been climbed many times. Sometimes a circular rainbow (the Brocken spectre phenomenon) can be seen from this point. It can be seen only when there is a bit of mist in the valley, and the sun is right behind the person facing the valley. One phenomenon that can be observed at this place is the vertical cloud burst, in which the clouds nearing the cliff get sucked into the pit fall area below and are thrown vertically into the sky reaching more than 50 feet (15 m), creating the impression of a wall that is rising straight from the edge of the cliff without entering the landmass area.   Brief Info about the Fort :- Height: – 4245 feet Elevation – 1,294 m Grade: – Hard Endurance Level: – Difficult. Duration of the Event: – 2 Days. District: – Ahmednagar   Who can join for the Event: – 15 yearsand above.

Dear Friends We invite you for MumbaiRangers Night Trek to Ramshej Fort on 21 Feb 2016 Leaving 20 Feb night   Some information about the event Ramshej Fort Type : Hill forts Height : 3273 ft Fort Range : Trimbakeshwar District : Nashik Grade : Easy (Max 1.5 hours Ascend)   Ramshej literally means Lord Ram's bedstead. While in exile, Lord Ram had made this place as his residence for some time, which gives the fort its name. Nasik is an ancient city of India. References are found showing its importance in all the four Yugas.  It was known as Padmanagar in Kruta Yuga, Janasthana in Dwapar Yuga and Nasik in Kali-Yuga. On the western tip of the beautiful Ramshej Ghat in Northern Nasik, lies the marvelous Ramshej fort. Ramshej is about 14km from Nasik, while travelling  to Peth and from there it is a short trek to the fort. The fort is located at a height of 3273ft, which shows you the marvel of labor and effort that went  into making it. The best time to visit the Ramshej Fort is when there is a short dry spell during the monsoons. This helps because when it rains, the hillside suddenly  bursts into greenery and during those short drying spells in the monsoons, the soil is firm enough to climb and does not muck your shoes.   History has it, that the fort was attacked by Aurangzeb's army, and his commanders threatened the Maratha kingdom saying that they would capture the fort  in hours but Shivaji Maharaj's son Sambhaji resisted these attacks for 7 years. The Fort thus remained with the Marathas for a period that was longer than  the fighting lives of some of the commanders of Aurangazeb's army who made the claim that the fort would be taken down in hours.   To See on Fort:   Ram Mandir : The way to the fort starts from its base village on the south side, and goes to the top from the east face. En route, there is a small temple of lord Ram  inside a huge cave. The cave is well maintained by the devotees and offers a nice place to stay. Inscription near the cave can be cl... Read more
