Harihar, also called Harish Fort, is 6.43 km west of Trimbak and 1,120.44 metres (3,676 feet) above sea-level. The trek to Harihar Fort is short yet tiring.

The last 200 feet of the hike is a nerve-racking climb through steep rock cut stairs inclined at 80 degrees. The descent is particularly exhilarating as you

have to climb down and at one point face a sheer 500 ft drop. The architecture of the stairs is so diverse and outstanding and offers spectacular and

occasionally scary views of the valley below. The fort is situated amidst the huge Vaitarna dam and the Trimbakeshwar mountain ranges offer stunning

views of the area around. It was of substantial importance in earlier days to keep watch on the route crossing the range connecting Maharashtra to Gujarat.

Trimbakeshwar range spreads from north of Igatpuri to west of Nasik. It is divided in two parts, with forts of Basgad, Utvad, hill of Fani, Harihar and

Trimbakgad on one part and those of Anjaneri and Hargad on the other.The water flows away from this region because of the one – sided slope of Sahyadris.

The fort appears to be rectangular in shape from its base village and is located on top of a triangular massif with all the three sides being vertical

and hence naturally fortified. There is only one access to the fort through a 200ft high rock cut staircase inclined at an 80 degree angle.

It was one of the forts in the possession of the Ahemadnagar Sultans. Captain Briggs from the British army visited the fort in 1818, and left a fairly

detailed description. He described the ascent as truly wonderful.In 1636 Harihar, Trimbakgad, Tringalvadi and a few other Poona forts were given by the

Marathas to the Mughals. Hariharwas one of the seventeen strong places that were surrendered to the British on the fall of Trimbak in 1818.This was one of

the rare forts that was not destroyed by the British because of its beauty.
