Bhairavgad is one of the most thrilling adventure treks in Maharashtra. It is well defined by a rock face called dyke. The rock towers at a height of 1145m and is a spectacular façade of immense beauty.
As one travels along the Malshej Ghat road, one notices sharp pinnacle of Bhairavgad, separated from the main range. It rises steeply from the Kankan plains and is rather tricky to climb A prominent and unique fort. The initial hike is through loose soil Followed by rock-cut steps. The walls overhang a little, and above, the steps are blown off . One will have to rock climb carefully above the overhang. More crumbling steps and plenty of screens before reaching the top make the trek more exciting. The top offers a great view of Malshej Ghats, NaneGhat, Jivdhan and many prominent peaks like Ajoba and Harishchandragad.
