About the Event
A thrilling trek to the Bhairavgad, near Moroshi, Maharashtra. A dyke structure with no remains on the fort with a couple of water cisterns on the path. Much of the history is unknown about the fort but it appears to be a water tower for the trade routes. The structure has rock-cut steps which are broken at a few places with steep valley exposure. From the summit, we could see Naneghat, Harishchandragad Konkan Kada, taramati, balekilla, and a few more mountains.
In 2012, SCI has rebolted the traditional trekking route on the east side where many rock-cut steps were ruined along with the west-facing rock climbing route.
We intend to start the trek once we reach Moroshi and reach the base of the bhairavgad dyke structure by early morning, set up a fixed line on the bolts from the base to the summit, give a technical briefing and start the climb till the summit traversing through the rock-cut steps, there will be a climb at one overhang rock patch. Once we reach the summit we get a chance to witness the beautiful Sahyadri ranges. Later we descend through the same route and rappel down from the overhang patch to the base of the structure. Then hike through the plateau and descend down towards Moroshi.
