Location Details

There are certain mountain tops which are so difficult to access that reaching the top, one gets surprised as to why there is no fort here. Shipnur is one of them.
User Experience

Shipnur is not a fort, but a suitable place for trekking. Shipnur does not have a plateau at the top but a narrow ridge, might be one of the reasons that it is not built as a fort. Towards the North side of Shipnur is the Ghatghar Hydroelectric power project. Towards the South of Samradwadi lies the Sandhan valley which gives memorable view. Besides that is the Sita’s cradle – Ajoba hillock. The view completes with the Ghanchakkar and the Pabargad hills. There is Ratangad on one side and the never ending Bhandardara dam towards the East. To the North is the Kalsubai range of Alang–Madan–Kulnag and to the South is the long range of Shipnur. Adjoining this is the Ghatghar water resource. This complete region is a retreat for the wanderers, trekkers and nature lovers. There is a complete maze of trees throughout the route. The early morning sunlight filtering in through the dense foliage adds a sense of liveliness.
