#Hariharfort / #Harshagad is a fort located 48 km from Igatpuri, Nashik district, of #Maharashtra. It is an important fort in #Nashik district, and was constructed to look upon the trade route through Gonda Ghat. It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps.
There are two base villages of the fort, Harshewadi and Nirgudpada. The #Harshewadi is 13 km from #Trymbakeshwar.The other base village of the fort is Nirgudpada/Kotamvadi which is 48 km from Igatpuri which itself is 48 km from Nashik and 121 km from #Mumbai.one can travel from kasara to trimbakeshwar by bus or any private vehicle which one you get.One should take care of returning from the fort the last bus from Trimbakeshwar is 5:30pm to kasara and the last train from Nashik is 6.35pm The climb from Harshewadi is more easier than from the Nirgudpada. A wide, safe trekking path starts from the hillock north of the Nirgudpada. It passes through scrub forest till it reaches an open ridge which is connected to the fort. It takes about an hour to reach the scarp of the hill on which the fort is situated.The ascent through the 60 m rock-cut steps is wonderful. It is like a stone ladder placed at 60 degree along the scarp.The steps are worn out at many places yet the holes on either side of the steps are conveniently cut for holding onto.After reaching the main entrance, the paths takes a left traverse and again a helical rock cut steps are to be climbed, which are more steep than the earlier. the steps finally end with a narrow entrance.At many places the steps are very narrow that, only a single person can climb at a time. Accommodation is possible on the fort as well as in the local villages.

Kukke Subramanya is a Hindu temple located in the village of Subramanya, Karnataka. In this temple Kartikeya is worshipped as Subramanya,lord of all serpents. The epics relate that the divine serpent Vasuki and other serpents found refuge under Subramanya when threatened by the Garuda.
The Kukke Subramanya Temple is located in the beautiful Western Ghats range of Karnataka. Overlooking the temple is the famous mountain of Kumara Parvatha, a popular hiking destination for trekkers from across South India. Kumara Parvatha forms a picture-perfect backdrop to the temple entrance and the Shesha Parvatha (a mountain shaped like a six-headed mythological serpent, adjacent to Kumara Parvatha) looks like a cobra with its open hood, as if protecting the temple shrine of Lord Subramanya. The temple is situated on the western slopes of the Ghats and is covered with dense evergreen forests.
Pilgrims going to the temple have to cross the Kumaradhara River and take a holy dip in the river before entering the temple for their darshan holy viewing of the Lord.

The devotees enter the courtyard from the doorway at the back, and circumambulate the deity. Between the sanctorum and the porticoentrance, there is the Garuda pillar covered with silver. Devotees circumambulate this pillar. It is believed that this pillar was enchanted and planted there to shield devotees from the poisonous flames arising from the breath of Vasuki, who resides inside. Beyond the pillar is the outer hall, the inner hall, and then the sanctorum of Sri Subrahmanya. At the centre of sanctorum is a pedestal. On the upper dais stands the deity of Sri Subrahmanya and the deity of Vasuki and, at a somewhat lower level, the deity of Shesha. Ritual worship is offered to these deities every day.The temple is slowly increasing in popularity, owing to its religious significance and importance.

They don't call Himachal Pradesh an explorer's paradise for nothing. With its spectacular snow-clad peaks and plunging river valleys, there is something to be discovered around every corner. Yulla Kanda is one such gem. Hidden amidst the depths of the Rora Valley of Kinnaur, the Yulla Kanda lake is believed to be home to the world's highest Krishna Temple, which is located inside the lake. The temple is believed to have been made by the Pandavas during their exile. However, despite its religious connection, it isn't the regular tourist hotspot you'd expect it to be. In fact, it pretty much remains isolated throughout the year except during Janmashtami when hundreds of pilgrims flock here to celebrate.

Located at a height of 3,895 metres, the Yulla Kanda lake is not a place that finds mention on the usual tourist packages and itineraries. But it doesn't mean you can't visit this stunning place. Trek A Tribe has put together a special package that offers a rare opportunity to take the Yulla Kanda trek. So, if you're heading to Himachal this summer, skip the regular tourist hotspots and opt instead for this short but eventful trek.

The Yulla Kanda lake is a holy spot for pilgrims and Krishna worshippers, but it is yet to become popular on the trekking circuit, which makes it perfect for those looking for something offbeat and removed from all the touristy chaos. The Yulla Kanda Trek is also great for beginners given its moderate difficulty level and short duration.

The trek gives you a chance to spend time amidst the pristine Himalayas. It takes you through forested areas, meadows, snow-clad spots, and finally leads to the lake where you spend time gazing at the stars in the night sky. The trek begins from Yulla Khas village and is about 11km long. While people from all over Kinnaur and other parts of Himachal flock here during Janmashtami, the lake remains secluded during the rest of the year, making it ideal for trekkers and nature enthusiasts.
