Bhandar Durg - Harihar Trek and Camping

About this tour

Tryambakeshwar, situated about 25kms from Nasik is famous for one of the Jyotirlinga. The massive hill behind the city is called Brahmagiri or Tryambakgad.
This mountain is the source of Godavari River.
From here, we walk towards Durga Bhandar, which very few people visit, and it’s a Treasure!
The other Fort we visit is Harshgad or Harihar.
It is an important fort in Nashik district, and was constructed to look upon the trade route through Gonda Ghat. It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps.
We climb it from Nirgugpada, and its an amazing route!
The rock cut stairs will baffle your mind, it is tiring and beautiful at the same time!
The ascend through the 60 mtr rock cut steps is wonderful. It is like a stone ladder placed at 60 degree along the scarp.The steps are worn out at many places yet the holes on either side of the steps are conveniently cut for holding onto
