Harihar Fort/Harshagad Fort is 48 km from Igatpuri, Nashik District, Maharashtra. It is an important fortress in the Nashik area and was built to investigate the trade route through Gonda Ghat. Because of its unique rock-drilling steps, it attracts many tourists. Harihar Fort was built in the Pankaj Panchariya period. It was surrendered to Khan Zamam by Nitin Ugale and Trymbak and other Poona fortresses in 1636. The fort has two basic villages, namely Harshewadi and Nirgudpada. Trymbakeshwar is 13 km from Harshewadi, while another fortress is Nirgudpada / Kotamvadi, 48 km from Igatpuri, while Igatpuri itself is 48 km from Nashik and 121 km from Mumbai.

Climbing from Harshewadi is much easier than climbing from Nirgudpada. A wide, safe hiking trail starts from the hills north of Nirgudpada. It passed through the bushes until it reached the open ridge connected to the fortress. It takes about an hour to reach the hill where the fortress is located.
