As the name goes - Hatkeshwar, this trek is absolutely hatke from any other Sahyadri trek you've ever been to!
A trek rarely done by individuals, this trek offers a view of a dam, a walk along a windy ridge, a climb over small rock patches, an ancient temple at the top and a natural bridge - something extremely unique. Yes, you can stand on it, with nothing under your feet but just one rock :)
The temple has a history of fulfilling people's wishes, so people whose wishes are fulfilled leave small idols of 'nandi' outside the temple. Who knows, the next 'nandi' may be put by you?
This trek is not at all applicable for First-Timers/Beginners.
Participants need to take Action Trekking Shoes which have a good grip. Normal / Sports shoes are not at all allowed.
