Description

PADARGAD

Situated at the backdrop of Bhimashankar; Padargad is a small fort with almost no ruins but just few water tanks and caves.

What makes it trekker’s delight is the climb to this fort which is considered as a medium grade as it demands technical skill and equipment.
To reach the top of Padargad one has to cross a few rock patches and a chimney climb which makes it the most thrilling experience.
Once you reach a top you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the entire bhimashankar range. One can see Siddhagad, Kothligad (Peth) and Bhimashankar from here.
