As first rappelling trek of our’s, we choose to take on Bhairavgad in Malshej region as couple of hours from Mumbai. From Kalyan to Malshej road reaching Moroshi Village on Highway itself, you’ll see a board namely the entrance of Bhairavgad.
Moving on the path, the villagers saw us, and thought that we are from Forest department and started running, as I was having my DSLR, Bhimsen(Violet Tee) as Forest Inspector and Jayesh(with Rope) to catch them 😛
Moving the same path, would eventually take us to the Valley which gives a broadway of Malshej ghat.
Just climbing over this, you’ll be landed on a Flat plateau, where unbelievable amazing Bhairavgad standing huge.

Moving just ahead, a path to up will take to exactly side of bhairavgad which then takes behind of Bhairavgad. We climb bhairavgad from behind not the front. 😛
