Khireshwar Route Difficulty and Travel guide

This is Sarang from Pune. Me and my friends planning to go on Harishchandragad. Need a little b it help.

  • We are planning to climb from khireshwar route what is the difficulty level of this route.?
  • Do you know the ST tymings from pune to Khireshwar.?or till Alephata.? (coz we are unable to find any)
  • what is the Per day rental of tents if we took TWO 4 persons tent form you.?


Khireshwar is a bit difficult for trekking. It would take around 5-6 hours to reach to the top via Khireshwar route.
There are buses from Swargate Bus depo to Alephata Village and from there one can take a Jeep ride to the Khireshwar Village.

If you are a novice trekker, it is recommended that you go via the Paachnai route which is much simpler for Harishchandragad trekking. It takes around 2 - 3 hours to get to the top from Paachnai.
Buses from Swargate go till Rajur Village and from there Jeeps are available till the base village.

Tents are available on rent on the fort itself. The villagers give them on rent on a basic charge or Rs100-200.

Please leave a comment below if you have any inputs for the question above.
