Hatgad fort stands overlooking Surgana taluka from where the eastern range of Sahyadris starts called as Saatmal range. This fort is branched from the main mountain range.
Ways To Reach :
One has to reach Nashik and proceed on the Nashik-Saputara highway. 74 kms from Nashik is a diversion towards Borgaon from where one route goes to Surgana while another to Saputara. Take the route to Saputara where Hatgadwadi village is 4 kms from Borgaon. Hatgadwadi is the base village for this fort.
Keeping Hatgadwadi village on the left side take the tar road to Kalvan village. One comes across a dried up well on the left. After a 5 mins walk from this well take the off road path to the left which takes us on the mountain ridge. A 15 mins walk takes us to a Mango tree from where a diagonal path takes us to the fort. It takes around an hour from the base to reach the top.
