Asherigad is a hill fort located around 100 km from Mumbai in Palghar district. It was built by Bhojraj of Shilahar Dynasty about 800 years back (13th century). Later, the Portuguese rebuilt this fort after they captured it during their rule. In 1737, Peshwas won this fort during their campaign of the Konkan and in 1818 this fort came under the British rule. The trail initially moves through dense forest and later opens up to a rocky patch. There is a ladder which can be used to navigate through this part. There are water tanks and a small temple at the top. Rest of the fort lies in ruins.
