Reviews of Harihar Fort • 7
Harihar Fort trek includes a flat walk for about 15 minutes followed by steady uphill trek for 1 hour. After climbing the first set of stairs comes the entrance to the fort also called the Darwaja. On the left side is the breathtaking view of the valley. There is a very narrow path after, this which should be covered very carefully. After this starts the second set of stairs. It is a steep uphill trek: the final climb.
Started with exploring the Jungle but all will be worth once you climb the massive 90-degree Rock and come back. A one-meter-wide rocky staircase with niches in it is carved out for ascending & descending the fort.
Get mesmerized by view of Duke’s Nose, The Horse Shoe Waterfall, The breadth of Lonavla from Rajmachi. Submerge yourself under the waterfall by Kondane Caves. Revere the beauty of dark while traversing through the dense Andharban forest. Experience the quiver of elevations while climbing the 800 steep rock cut stairs of Harihar fort.
