Sudhagad Monsoon Trek
Grade: Easy | Endurance: Medium
Surrounded by lush green grass and landscapes, the trek route towards Sudhagad is beautiful and scintillating. The 50 acre plateau with green meadows won’t fail to mesmerize you at the top. Navigate through steep stairs and ladders to reach this strategically placed fort.
Back in 2nd century BC, the devotees of Bhorai Devi built a temple at the top. Later the fort was captured by Bahamani Sultan while Marathas took over it in 1657 and named it as Sudhagad, which means the sweet fort.
