FATMAP difficulty grade
One of the famous trek routes both from either of the exit points.The route from Rajgad goes from 'cheetah darwaja' to 'bhutonde khind' a very scenic ridge.Upwards from Bhutonde Khind to Budhla Machi is a continuous ascending ascend with difficulty also soaring with the ladder to climb across to the climax. Adrenaline rush reaching Torna Fort from 'Hatticha Mal'(Elephants Plateau) slowly towards the Kokan Darwaja studded with railings to cling even in the windiest part of the climb. The route is a adventurous heritage hike and for beginners trek a whole day shall be much needed while for running goliaths a blitz krieg of 6-7hours. Summers Apr-Jun shall be dehydrating while the heavy rainfall months of Jul-Sep shall be slippery algae trodden. Besides the exit points there is very rare possibility enroute you could avail any refreshments though there is habitation in between near the road exit at Bhutonde. The route is narrated from Rajgad to Torna and in instance of the the other way round climb just mirror the description,elevation,gradient.The hard work committed is a double edged sword for any start and exit point here.
