sudhagadh was my 1 St trek for the month of May.. Sudhagadh himself has a deep mysterious history which is kept depth inside. Preferably sudhagadh was suppose to be the capital of Maratha but this is true or not which I heard was that the warrior found a pieces of bangles on this fort while climbing so they thought if one women can come so easily toward this fort then it could be very easy for enemies to reach over here, so they decided to change their decision and made Raigad as an official capital of Maratha kingdom( this is told story but this is true or not I'm not sure) well some says sudhagadh is haunted place too this could be funny enough but cannot identify.
