About Hargad Fort

There are some remnants of the fortification on the top. Ruins of a temple, of the residential structures and a couple of water cisterns, can be seen here. However, the water in these tanks is not potable and hence it is necessary to carry enough quantity of water.

A cave with a temple of goddess Kapaar Bhavani can also be found on the plateau during the fort-walk. Apart from these places, there isn't much to be seen on the fort. One can either return by the same path to visit the Mulher fort or go back to the village of Mulher. The whole walk on the fort can be completed in an hour’s time.

You can combine your visit with Salher Salota Mulher Mora Hargad Trek. All five forts can be covered in two days in this trek ideal for trekkers from Mumbai and Pune.

 

Hargad Fort - हरगड किल्ला established in the Baglan region of Nashik area. There exist two chief mountain ranges in the Baglan region, the Selbari range is south of the Dolbari mountain range. Selbari-Dolbari ranges are running parallel with each other in the east-west orientation. Hargad and other forts in the region controlled to maintain vigilance on Surat Burhanpur's ancient trade road. The old trade route passes between the Solbari Dolbari Ranges.
