Winter is one of the best times to Trek as well as Camp in the Sahyadris & that is precisely what we plan on doing this November!

The Magnificent & Huge fort of Harishchandragad with its rich history and gorgeous sights is easily accessible by a 2 hour hike & would be our target for this trekking and camping experience. To make things more interesting, We camp in the moonlight right on the Magnificent & Behemothic/Colossal/Belittling Konkan Kada soaking in the views & experiencing the meaning of the Word "Zen Moment".
