Irshalgad is hillock fort on the banks of Morbe reservoir next to Panvel. The typical boat like structure of the fort can be identified from long distance. The area of the fort is not large but there are several water cisterns cut from the rock. The nearest village is Irshalwadi.
Irshalgad pinnacle is an easy to moderate difficulty which takes 2 hour to ascend and 1.5 hour to descend. The path climbs a steep ridge and then tapers to an easy ascend till Irshalwadi.
