User Experience

To the North of Harishchandragad are the river basins of Mula. Along the banks of Mula river stands the trio of Kaladgad, Bhairavgad and Kunjhargad. Kaladgad lies at the foothills of Harishchandragad. Pachnai is a small village which lies between Kaladgad and Harishchandragad. With the company of dense trees and small hills, it takes almost 1 and ½ hour to reach water tank at the foothills of Kaladgad. The fort visible at the left is Kaladgad. After climbing from the dense forest of Karvi trees for around half an hour, one reaches the narrow stone steps carved in the rock. Climbing these steps is a rock wall which has small niches made in it just to get the grip with one’s hand and feet. One has to carefully climb from here to reach stone steps climbing which one reaches the fort top. This fort is quite difficult to climb. After reaching the top, seeing the sky high mountain peaks around the clear water of Mula river and the river banks carpeted with lush green is just enough to make one forget the diffi cult climb. There is a small cave having number of carvings of Gods. There are two water tanks near the cave. The pinnacle of Kaladgad is visible here which is locally know as ‘Kalad cha angtha’ meaning the thumb. Going behind the caves, is a way towards the fort. There are not much remains on the fort but the view it offers is beyond imagination.
