It receives many visitors because of its peculiar rock-cut steps,there are two base village Harshewadi and Nirgupada,and if you are all first time into trekking this is also best fort to visit with little thrill at the climb. It takes about an hour to reach the scarp of the hill on which the fort is situated. The ascent through the 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.
