Location Details

Fani is not a fort and so it does not have any references in the past. Nor has it witnessed any battle neither it has been an important peak in any event. The word ‘Fani’ in Marathi means a serpent’s hood which has been derived from its form.
User Experience

The Trimbakeshwar range of Sahyadris is famous for the trekkers and photographers. This range is extremely beautiful and generates interest in everyone’s mind. Fani is a small triangular mountain sharing a common col with Bhasgad.Fani is not a fort but still very attractive. For reaching the top of this pinnacle,one needs expertise in rock climbing.Here comes the thrill of climbing and rappelling.Trekkers are overwhelmed by the challenging climb but someone who is not so used may feel scared. There are no water tanks or any arrangement for stay here because it was never inhabited in the past.The view one sees from this pinnacle is breathtaking.Reaching this point is an achievement in itself. Towards the east lies Harihar fort, towards the west lie Bhaskargad and Utwad.Towards the south,at a distance, one can see the back waters of Vaiterna dam.A beautiful landscape spreads north south.It is a paradise for photographers.This is a wonderful trek for monsoons which takes just half a day.
