So you think, you can trek...

Irshalgad Trek (as - First Monsoon Trek)


Travelog Date: June 18, 2017.

Grade: Medium (3 hours ascend and 3 hours descend).






I always wanted to climb Irshalgad been crossing the base village of this mountain from Morbe Damside while climbing to Matheran from Shivaji Ladder.  This time due to some misdirection given by google maps while driving we took a left turn a couple of km ahead of Chowk station the road lead us to an interesting offroad ride on countryside mud roads. We finally decided to park our vehicle in a small Hamlet (Wada) called Poyinje. 

Irshagad would have been a critical watch tower, you can see Prabagad, Karnala Fort, Dhak Fort, Rajmachi, Matheran, and several other hills from here.








An Offbeat trail leading to Irshalgad from the west side of the mountain starts here at 
(Nanai Factory).


Unlike the trail starting from Morbe Dam side the trek from the west side of the mountain has a reasonably thick forest cover, and being on the west side if you start your trek early in the morning you will also have the benefit shadow cast by Irshagad hill. 

The trek route is a steep ascend taking you to a plateau from where you can see Irshal machi and few small farms. On a warm and humid day, this trail can become tough if you start later than 10 am. So ration sufficient hydration fluids (2 liters per head minimum) and few seasonal fruits and salad items to go with it.
