  • Gadgada Fort, also known as Ghargad Fort, situated about 16kms from Ghoti in Nashik district of Maharashtra. Gadgad Sanghavi is a base village. A Hanuman temple or School in the village can be a place to stay for night. There is an Ashram situated at the base of Gadgada Fort. Nearby is a well with good potable water throughout the year. The route to the fort goes from a col to the left of the fort when seen from base village. When reached to the base of massive cliff, one can see steps carved in the rock which leads to the temple. Steps above this to the entrance door were blasted by British so the route is difficult. Make a traverse and climb from back side of the fort. From here too one has to climb a couple of rock patches to reach the fort. The patch is not very tough. One can rappel down from the entrance with the help of rope of approx 120 Feet and technical gears. There are 2 groups of water cisterns on top but no potable water. There is no shed on top.
