Harihar and Bhaskar gad are the adjacent forts located along the Trimbakeshwar mountain range of the Sahyadri. The Harihar fort is famous for its steep rock steps, while the nearby Bhaskar gad is though  not so well known. To keep vigil on a trade route of Gonda ghat both the forts were built.
Harihar fort is only accessible through a narrow rocky steep staircase, with grooves to hold. Though it’s not easiest way to ascend, it’s definitely worth the experience! It will be an adventures hike you are looking for.
