Event Overview

Prachitgad trek is one of the most interesting treks in Sahyadris. Located on the mid western border of Chandoli WLS, this trek is an enigma for the trekkers. The original approach for this fort was from a village named Patharpunj which is located 17Km from koyna Nagar. This forest is now part of Sahyadri tiger Reserve and hence this traditional approach is prohibited by Forest Department. now the only road available for a common trekker is from Konkan side where there is huge ascent of 4Hrs through thick forest, Karvy Thickets and scree with high gradient.
TREKDI with its expertise in offbeat destinations has organized this offbeat adventure trek for the trekkers. The Experience you will get in this trek will be uncomparable with any other trek.
