Images may take 30s to load,else refresh


Kothaligad trek is famous for its stairs cut through a huge rock to reach the top . Also it has a beautifully carved cave inside the same rock. It reminds me of other such rock carved forts treks like Bhandardurg & Harihar . Did I tell you that Kothaligad fort has couple of perfectly restored cannons. In monsoon it is always surrounded by clouds and has many waterfalls enroute. Ek perfect monsoon trek me aur kya chahiye ? This Kothaligad trek blog captures my perfect monsoon trek experience. More adventures like Kothaligad at the end of the post.

How difficult is the Kothaligad trek ?

Niraj what is the difficulty level of the Kothaligad trek? Kothaligad is an easy trek. Only you will need to walk all the way to Peth (4km) from where the trek starts. Since good roads are available only till a little distance from Ambivali, most of the off road till Peth needs to be walked which will take about 60-90 minutes.

How long is the Kothaligad trek ?

How much time does Kothaligad trek take? Well as I said earlier 60-90 minutes of walking from Ambivali to Peth village (4kms) on the bad road is needed. From Peth it will another 60-120 minutes to reach the top of Kothaligad. Hence 3-4 hrs of trek time + time to enjoy the fort. I myself sat at the top for about an hour because I was too glued to the view of the clouds getting created out of thin air at the Kothaligad ridge. So consider about 6-7hrs to start from Ambivali & reach back. Better start your trek early.

Food @ Kothaligad

Hotels are available at Ambivali as well as at Peth. Also on monsoon weekends many food stalls are available on the trek route from Peth to Kothaligad top. Also with increasing popularity many locals provide home made food as well.

Where to stay at Kothaligad ?

Kothaligad has become quite famous over the years. Many camping options have opened up in Peth village where you can get a tent stay + food for Rs 1000 -2000.

How to Reach Kothaligad from Mumbai and Pune ?

Where is Kothaligad located? Kothaligad is located at east of Karjat near the Karjat- Murbad highway. It is 25kms from Karjat, 55kms from Panvel, 90kms form Mumbai & 130kms from Pune. Ambivali is the nearest village with proper roads from where one can walk to Peth & then trek to Kothaligad. As such Ambivali is the base village for Kothaligad

Ambivali > Peth > Kothaligad

To reach Ambivali nearest railway station are Karjat and Nerul.

From Karjat : One can get on a Karjat- Jambrung bus and get down at Ambivali (available from Karjat Station at 0830 hrs ). Return bus from Ambivali to Karjat is at 1530 hrs & 1730 hours. Make sure not to miss it. Shared rickshaws are also available from Karjat (Shree Ram pul ) to Ambivali

From Neral: Shared Rickshaws are available to Kashele. From Kashele shared taxi go to Ambivali

Private Vehicle: Just drive to Ambivali ( location ) using google Maps.

How to reach Kothaligad fort trek form Mumbai & Pune - Trek route gps for Kothaligad

From Ambivali you will need to walk almost 4 kms to Peth on a semi-built rough road which gets worse during rains as all the soft soil erodes and all that remains are stones of various sizes. I.e. You cant drive all the way to Peth but can drive to Ambivali, park your vehicle and start trekking Or you can still go ahead for about 10 minutes from Ambivali where proper road is available, but then its all rough.

How to get time & money to travel ?

Niraj, I love traveling but I dont get leaves. Should I quit my job to travel? Sounds tempting, but then what about money. Savings only last so long. How to make money while traveling? I have tried trek leading, vlogging, and freelancing, but nothing worked - till I came aross a possible option. What if I told you that you could earn from anywhere around the world. Be it a village in Himachal, or an island in the Andamans. Imagine working 1-2 hours a day and having the rest of the day free. Or just take the day off without asking anyone. Sounds too good to be true? It seems I found a solution to this unique problem

You know about share market but do you know of trading? If you can learn trading , you can earn from anywhere & travel everywhere while living life on your own terms, being your own boss. Use your free time to learn it & all your travel dreams will come true. With just an internet connection and a free account , you can escape the modern day slavery of 9-7 jobs. Think about it!

Kothaligad trek Blog : TheFreeBird’s story

I am on a roll in this monsoon. Last two weekends i have been on two treks namely a 400ft Kataldhar waterfall trek and second was Kondana Caves. On third weekend’s Saturday I visited some offbeat unnamed waterfall ( more about it on my instagram ) and on Sunday i decided to do the Kothaligad trek. Since i consider solo trekking idiotic I went to Kothaligad with my friend on my bike all the way to Ambivali which is some 50 kms from my place.

kothaligad trek blog

The route was very scenic and i couldn’t stop from taking pictures every now and then. We reached Ambivali and continued on the right side road till the point where the road bifurcates, we need to take the LEFT to start going higher. The road becomes very bad after a while. After parking the bike on the road side we started our Kothaligad trek on the rough road for next 2 hours taking photos at every possible interval. Jumping 50 times to get a proper take got me excited. Wouldn’t be an issue with the burst mode in mobiles

KOthaligad Trek starts

Could you solve the puzzle in the above two pics ??? 😁

It started raining heavily & I saw many water streams & waterfalls after every 5 minutes. After reaching a plateau the beautiful Kothaligad fort became visible. This is where every trekker would unconsciously spend a whole lot of time taking pics. Nature God was happy with me as rain stopped and i could take some beautiful pics . This Kothaligad View Point provides a beautiful location to take time lapse.

Majestic kothaligad fort

While the clouds played hide and seek game with the pinnacle of Kothaligad , the entire plateau had come alive with many waterfalls pouring across the plateau’s edge . After a brief stop at this point we restarted our Kothaligad trek towards Peth Village.

View of Kothaligad plateau

It took another 10-15 minutes from here to reach the Peth village. No points for guessing why we were so slow. Beautiful scenes with clouds & waterfalls can even make a sad person happy. Aur hum toh excitement ka dukaan hai . As we neared Peth village I realised how big Kothaligad actually is

Kotahliagad Peth fort

At Peth village the first hotel – Bhairavnath Bhojnalay is the place where the road bifurcates . Take LEFT from here and walk straight till you reach the base of fort from where the Kothaligad trek actually starts. You will reach another hotel by the name Hotel Peth Killa ( visible on map ) whose owner told me that stay is free and you can get unlimited non-veg thali for Rs 150 and Veg for Rs 120. Cheers to that. It seemed like a good place to stay just bring your blanket or sleeping bags if you are large in number .

Walking a bit ahead we reached the village & going past the temple reached the Kothaligad trek start point.

official start of KOthaligad trek

There are many forts visible on Kothaligad trek but nothing was visible today due to clouds. With clear climate you can easily spot Bhimashankar , Padaragad , Siddhagad , Irshalgad , Sondai , Matheran , sometimes even Karnala & Manikgad . Today all we could see was clouds – they were beautiful though. Sometimes the clouds used to open up for a while to give a glimpse of the vast green expanse. Definitely a sight for sore eyes.

The climb is easy . In between the ascend i found a group smoking. Seemed like they had cancelled their climb half way because of exhaustion. Ya buddy keep on smoking . Ridiculous. There are few more stalls enroute which can take your lunch order while going up and you can have it once you are descending. Since we were running late we were just kept climbing till we reached the main entrance / Maha Darwaja.

Kothaligad Trek Main Entrance

We continued the climb which seemed like Ganesh Ghat of Bhimashankar but a shorter one. Moving ahead i found few more rock cut stairs.

Some more stairs

Next stop was at top where there are couple of restored canons. Good job with restoration. With the canons i could imagine how Kothaligad fort would have looked in its hay days.

Peth Kothaligad Canon

From here the route bifurcates near the Bastion / Buruj and goes around the fort. The route from right of bastion appeared very risky and i didnt go there. I did take the left route to reach the backside of the fort where there are many water cisterns and caves.

Backside of the fort

After going around Kothaligad it was time for the main attraction- The cave & the stairs. The route from Left of bastion leads to a cave and entrance to the top. This cave was the biggest one on Kothaligad. It had beautifully carves pillars and door frames . I can only imagine the human ingenuity to get these done many centuries ago with basic equipment.

Peth Kothaligad trek blog Caves

This cave was not maintained properly as it smelled like bat shit. 50 people could stay here easy . And groups are known to cook food here. Beside this cave is a temple & the famous stairs to reach the top. The stairs are carved beautifully through this rocky pinnacle. It is indeed a miracle on how it was done 100’s of years ago. Even now it would be difficult to carve out such a beauty with all the available technology. My salute to these great craftsmen.

kothaligad trek blog

The stairs are carved like a circular stair case to reach the top. While climbing the stairs there are few windows through which i could see the beautiful greenery and clouds. This was mesmerising.

One last set of stairs to reach the highest point of Kothaligad trek. From here you get a beautiful 360 degree view which was used to keep an eye on the enemy movement in the Maval region

KOthaligad Stairs

From the top we could only see clouds. Wind swayed the fresh green grass like waves and I was only able to hear the whispering wind & birds singing in harmony . The clouds were getting drifted to the top, right in my face with my hair swirling across my face. Mother nature had embraced me.

View From Kothaligad

If there is anything that can be called heavenly – this would be it. I am pretty sure when i die almighty will ask me ” How was heaven ? ” I would be happy to say ” The Best “

Kothaligad was one of my best monsoon trek. I didnt want to leave this place but my freind had to reach home early and i hesitantly started going back. Not before clicking 100’s of pictures. We descended to Peth village in half an hour & had some snacks. Have a look at this vlog i made for this trek.

This is an old video, these days I upload YouTube Ambience videos without any artificial music & just nature sounds . Stay Tuned. Subscribe …

Time for the 50km long ride back home. So many beautiful things. So little time.

Till next time.

Kothaligad Trek: My Experience At Indiahikes Western Campus

Share this story

Category Transformation Stories Trekker Space

By Latika Payak

Indiahikes recently inaugurated with the Western Campus. And, on January 8, 2021 we had our first trek to Kothaligad from here. 13-year-old Ananya Naidu was a part of it. In this riveting blog, she details out each day of the experience

Let me just start by saying I’m somewhat of an ‘environmentalist’, which leads me to talk about Indiahikes’ Green Trails program.

| Green Trails means leaving the site cleaner than when you arrived there. Pick up all the trash you see, even if it’s not yours!

It might feel unnecessary. But only on the last day, when you dump all the trash from your eco bags onto a tarp, and you see the amount of trash that was collected, are you filled with a sense of realization that we need to keep nature litter-free. 

If we don’t pick up after ourselves, people will stop going on treks because who would want to see trash all over their trail anyway?

kothaligad trek blog

Trekkers on Kothaligad trek with Ecobags

Imagine, a beautiful, clear lake where you can go to paint or swim in the morning, filled with plastic bottles and wrappers and filth. That may happen unless we clean up after ourselves and others. In nature, humans are the intruders, not the other way round.

Now that I’ve spoken about keeping nature clean, the way it should be, I’ll tell you about MY trek experience. 

Day 1 – Arriving at Indiahikes Western Campus

We arrived at the Vijayabhoomi University at 4 pm, and hiked about one kilometer to our campsite.

Once everyone was settled with their tents and luggage, we had an introduction session followed by a short debriefing by Prathima, Izzat, Gautam, and Tirth.

Our wonderful cooks, Narendra and Sandeep, made hot chai and snacks for everyone. Just on time too, pretty soon, the rain had us cooped up in our tents, missing the activities. Mr Rakesh, who was the spirit of the group, sensed the rain had dampened everyone’s mood, and he arranged a game of antakshari . By then, the pouring had turned to a light drizzle, so everyone was only slightly damp😁. 

Dinner was served, and it was absolutely delicious! I couldn’t believe my eyes when Narendra and Sandeep brought out the special dessert, shahi tukda . Not only was it presented beautifully, but it was also mouth-wateringly good too. 

After dinner, we went on a short night walk. It was a serene experience to hear all the night sounds you normally wouldn’t in the city.

At the end of the day, after we got back to our campsite, we shared our experiences of the first day with each other and went to bed. The crickets soon lulled everyone to sleep.

Day 2 – An Adventurous Trek To Kothaligad

A wake-up call was given at 5:30 am. We had to report at 6 am with our lunchboxes and mugs for breakfast. As usual, the cooks didn’t fail to impress us. We had a breakfast fit for the long trek ahead and hot, refreshing herbal tea.

At 8 am, once we received our instructions and packed lunches, we started off on our trek.

kothaligad trek blog

It took about 4 hours for us to reach the summit, but it didn’t feel like a deary walk at all. The Indiahikes team kept everyone in high spirits, and made sure nobody felt like they were lagging behind. 

Once we reached the top, We had yet another amazing meal (I swear if you try to lose weight on a trek with Indiahikes, you will fail, just because the food is so good), Then we rested a bit and started back down. Our plan was to reach camp by 4 pm to have snacks and tea. 

Once back down at camp, Nari and Sandeep had tea, juice, and snacks ready for everyone.

After that, we had reflection, where we talked about our overall experience on the trek. Then, we headed into our tents to get changed and nap, if we wanted to. 

Later in the evening, a tarp was laid out on the grass and everyone gathered and chit-chatted. Soon, It was dinnertime, which was followed by fresh, hot gulab jamun for dessert. We washed our lunchboxes and gathered on the tarp again, this time for games. We played and had a blast till late in the night. This time, I think everyone slept like a log because we were pretty exhausted from the day’s events.

Day 3 – A Creative Session By The Lake

A professor from the university was to join us at the lake for a drawing/ painting session. Everyone was refreshed from a good night’s sleep and got ready pretty fast. We had a light, early breakfast, and were off to the lake. There, we had an informative and fun session of painting and drawing nature around us.

After we got back from the lake, We laid out a tarp and emptied all the litter that we collected throughout the trek onto it. Then we segregated all the waste into three bags, recyclable, non-recyclable, and landfill.

kothaligad trek blog

After that, we washed up and had brunch. Then, certificates were distributed and we had reflection again.

All of us unpitched our tents, packed our bags, and hiked back to the university, said our goodbyes and left. It was an unforgettable experience, and the fact that all of us were complete strangers to each other, yet we became so comfortable and friendly within the 1st day, was amazing.

I look forward to going on many more treks with Indiahikes!

Kothaligad Trek (Peth) 2023 – Complete Travel Guide

Brief about kothaligad trek.

As a traveler, Kothaligad is a must-visit location located in the famous Bhimashankar wildlife sanctuary near Karjat, and is commonly known as the fort of Peth. Its pinnacle can be seen from the village of Peth, and the trek to the top of the fort is famous for its stairs cut through a huge rock. On reaching the top, one can witness beautifully carved caves inside the same rock, with the Bhairoba cave being the most spacious and special. The fort also has perfectly restored cannons, and during the monsoon season, it is surrounded by clouds and many waterfalls en route.

Serene View of Kothaligad Fort from far

Located less than 100 kms from both Mumbai and Pune, Kothaligad is an ideal all-season trek for those looking for a quick getaway from bustling city life. The location is well-connected by road and railways, and the trek to the top is a great experience for those who love trekking and exploring natural wonders.

Key details of the Kothaligad Trek:

  • Ideal Number of Days for the Visit : 1 Day
  • Trek Distance : 4.1 km
  • Trek Altitude Range : 3100 feet
  • Nearest Railway Station : Karjat (30 km)
  • Nearest Airport : Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Airport (94 km)

What is the best time to visit Kothaligad Trek?

The best time to embark on the Kothaligad Trek is from June to August. You can witness fireflies at Kothaligad Fort before the start of the monsoon season, mostly during the months of May and June. However, it is important to note that the section from Ambivli to Peth gaon is very prone to landslides, leading to numerous incidents of trees falling and obstructing the trail during the monsoon season.

How to reach the starting point of the trek?

The best way to reach Kothaligad from Mumbai is to take a suburban train to Karjat and alight at Neral station. From there, regularly shared 6-seater Vikram or Tum-tum rickshaw services are available to Kashele, which cost Rs. 55 per seat.

If you’re traveling from the Mumbai International Airport, the most convenient way to reach Karjat is by taking a route that includes the Airport Road Metro station, Ghatkopar railway station (Central Railway), and Karjat railway station.

Availability of accommodations and food near the trek

While embarking on the Kothaligad trek, keep in mind that restaurants and stores are available in Ambivli. However, you’ll have fewer options as you move away from the base village, and the next restaurant is located 4 km away near Peth gaon. The base village offers food during the day.

On the accommodation front, there are several options available near Kothaligad. You can pitch a tent near Peth gaon or spend the night in the Bhairoba cave near the peak. Alternatively, you can arrange for a homestay in Peth gaon.

The Difficulty level of the Kothaligad Trek

Kothaligad Trek is an easy trek with no section classified as difficult. However, trekkers should be prepared for every eventuality.

The trail from Ambivli to Peth gaon is prone to landslides and incidents of trees falling during the monsoon season. There is a patch after emerging from the spiral steps hewn from the fort’s insides where the trail sharply turns right and overlooks a 50+ feet drop. Care should be taken while descending this patch as it can turn slippery during the monsoons. The last narrow and exposed trail that circumvents the fort has been a cause for concern, with multiple incidents of trekkers getting injured while attempting this stretch.

Preparation required for the Kothaligad Trek

If you’re a beginner and want to start a fitness routine, you should begin slowly and increase your pace gradually. A brisk walk of 5 km in 45 minutes should be your starting point. You should aim to walk 5 km, 4 times a week, and introduce jogging as you become more comfortable. Once you feel comfortable jogging, you can increase the distance you jog in a workout until you can complete 5 km in 40 minutes. Alternatively, you can choose cycling and aim to cover 15 km in 60 minutes when you begin, and gradually increase your pace to cover 18 km in one hour.

You will get mobile network for all major operators like Airtel, Vodafone & Jio throughout the trek.

However, if you plan to visit Ambivli, you should be aware that it is not yet fully modernized, and you may not find an ATM nearby. The nearest towns with operational ATMs are Karjat and Neral, so it’s essential to ensure that you carry enough cash before starting your trek.

Basic information on Kothaligad (also called Kotligad or Kothligad) trek 13th century fort which is located near Karjat-Murbad Road. It is called as Kothaligad since the shape looks like removal of “Kothala” from stomach.- means fort looks like removed intestine from stomach, hence called as Kothaligad ! sounds interesting !!

Difficulty level :  Simple torture !!

Height – 3100 feet above sea level

What to see !

  • Scenic views (Bhimashankar, Siddhagad, Matheran)
  • Hanuman temple at village Peth
  • Temple at fort base
  • Large cave at fort base
  • Carved steps inside pinnacle forming a staircase as way to the top.
  • fireflies (at beginning of monsoon season)

places that can be seen from fort kothaligad

Place to stay/take food & water

Water – carry along (alternate source – a cistern at the fort, but having dirty water !) Food and stay – large cave named as Bhairoba cave (not sure one can stay here due to smell) suggest to carry food or call hotel at village peth and tell him to prepare food for u, better to stay at hotel at Peth

How to reach kohaligad trek.

Karjat (reach by train or bus from Mumbai or Pune)

The distance from Karjat to Ambivali is about 30 Kms.

1) Karjat >> Kasheli Bus Kasheli >> Ambivali – 6 seater tumtum rickshaw 2) Karjat >> Jamkhed ST Bus which goes from Ambivali village 3) Neral >> Kasheli – 6 seater tumtum rickshaw Kasheli >> Ambivali – 6 seater tumtum rickshaw

Ambivili to Peth (walk, travel by private rikshaw/jeep)(walk time 1.5 hours) – my suggestion is to go upto Peth using SUV. Peth to top of fort (1 hour)

Best time to visit Kothaligad Fort

Monsoon will be the best time to visit due to low temperatures, greenery, misty clouds and waterfall views.

Winter is too cold, you can enjoy morning mist and fog all around the fort.

Summer is absolutely NO, since its too tiring to walk from Ambivali till Peth as well as the views are not that great in summer, due to no greenery, no waterfalls and no mist.

Precautions use proper trekking gears for this trek

Since we went by bus, we parked it in village Ambivili and had our morning tea at Hotel Kothaligad, Obviously mandar had a phone call to keep tea ready for the team of ~65 members 🙂

Immediately after the steps u get across to the caves which are really big and have remains of carved pillars .. some rooms .. I read that u can spend night here ..but practically don’t think that is needed since u can spend 50 rs per person and stay any house at the foot of fort .. where u can get village food and stay .. water .. everything .. instead spending night in the smelly caves having bat shit around 🙁

kothaligad trek blog

Caves master bedroom .. i could not enter inside as the smell from bat shit was really strong .. only could sustain to take a snap for all of u ..

Tuesday, august 16, 2022, kothaligad fort trek | top things to know before you go.

Kothaligad Fort which is also named  Peth Fort is a small fort situated in the Karjat Taluka of Maharashtra, India. Since it is a small fort, the height of the Kothaligad Fort is 3100 feet . It is called Peth Fort because it is located right behind the Peth village . Kothaligad Fort gives you an entire view of the Sahyadri mountain range. There is not much history about the fort. It was captured by the British earlier than by Marathas and then again by the British. It was used as a watchtower to keep an eye on enemies. Kothaligad Fort Trek is a well-known activity for many youngsters.  

How to Reach Kothaligad Fort in Karjat?

My experince of kothaligad fort trek, the ideal time to visit peth fort, stay and food options at kothaligad (peth fort).

Since this is located in a local village, there are no hotels or resorts to stay in. If you want to stay in hotels then there are few hotels in the Karjat district. As I rightly mentioned there are large caves on the summit of the fort. The caves can accommodate a large group.

If you are in the group you can request the locals to arrange for a stay. Below is the contact of locals if you want to stay at the fort.  

For food, there are a few shacks on the route to the fort that provides water bottles, snacks, and Maggy If you want to eat proper lunch then locals will help you to fulfill your wish. The locals' homemade food is so awesome and delicious. There are many restaurants on the route, you can have veg or non-veg food as per your choice.

Things to Remember Before You Go

  • If you are driving there by car then you must park it at Ambivali village because the route is rough and can harm your car
  • If you are a skilled biker then only take your bike to the Peth village
  • The washroom is available at the base of the fort near Peth village
  • The local ST frequency is every 3 hours between 8am to 5 pm, so plan your trek accordingly
  • It is always better to start your trek early in the morning
  • Carry some energy bar, and chocolate to keep yourself energetic throughout the trek. 
  • Do not litter the area around.

Amidst the beautiful and picturesque location of Karjat, there lies Kothaligad Peth Fort in the Sahyadri range. Further, the fort is nestled near the Karjat-Murbad road in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Notably, Kothaligad Peth Fort has got its name owing to its proximity with the Peth village. Historians also suggest that the fort was captured by Aurangzeb in 1684 and later remained under control of the British till 1862. The place is also popular amongst adventure enthusiasts, especially during the monsoon season. The Kothaligad monsoon trek offers a stunning sight of nature where one gets to witness the majestic interplay of clouds, cool breeze and waterfalls.

Located at a height of 3100 ft, the trek to Kothaligad Peth Fort has gained popularity owing to its low difficulty level involving easy climbing. While many trekkers visit the place all around the year, the monsoon trek to Kothaligad or Peth Fort has a lot more to offer. The Peth Fort trek is considered as one of the best experiences for the people who can’t afford to have longer leaves from their job and want a short break from their hectic schedule to rejuvenate themselves.

Kothaligad Peth Fort doesn’t rest alone on the hilltop but enjoys the company of other historical forts like Rajmachi and Dhak. The fort features canon marks, temples and potholes. One has to navigate through a stairway to reach the fort. After arriving at the top, experience the beauty of a grassy landscape and well-sculpted pillars that are the major attractions of the fort. The locals say that the fort is a lighthouse, which was used by the then rulers to give the directions to know the advancements of the enemy. At the base of the fort, one can locate a small temple, as well as a chimney-like tunnel leading to the top of the fort. On the way to Kothaligad Peth Fort, trekkers will also encounter a small waterfall. Lush green bushes and trees make the trail more serene and beautiful. From forts to caves, and the 13th-century temple to water reservoirs, monsoon trek to Kothaligad or Peth Fort is considered as the best weekend destination for adventure and peace seekers.

So, undertake the Kothaligad trek in Maharashtra to experience the lush green forest featuring waterfalls, streams and a variety of flora and fauna.

Day 1: Reaching Kothaligad Fort

The adventure begins after you arrive at the Karjat railway station. You’re required to reach the station by 8 am. From here, board a taxi or bus to reach the base village which acts as the starting point of the trek. After reaching the village, rest for a while and enjoy scrumptious breakfast amidst the peaceful surrounding. Start hiking in the hills at 10 am. Pass through the gushing waterfalls and the lush green forest that look stunning in the monsoon season. It will be an amazing experience to be surrounded by the hidden gems of raw nature. Also, you will be thrilled to see a rich variety of flora and fauna. Within an hour of hiking, you will reach Pethchiwadi.

Walking along with the dancing clouds and fog, you will reach the fort at 12 pm. Have your lunch at the top. Afterwards, walk around the fort and make beautiful memories by clicking the dazzling pictures of hidden gems of nature. The joy of beholding the sight of various mountains, hamlets and waterfall is truly inexplicable. After exploring the ancient temples and caves, get back to the base village by 5 pm and then board a taxi back to the Karjat railway station.

One day Trek to Kothaligad fort/ Peth Fort

Photo of Rohitkumar Thakur

Here is my first Travel blog.

Although I have been traveling from last 4 years, this is first time I'm writing my blog.

Trekking is sahyadris is always closet thing to my heart.

So on 24th Nov after break of 2 months due to various reason I decided to go to Kothaligad Fort in Karjat.

Here is little information regarding Kothaligad Fort :

Kothaligad fort is also known as "Peth fort" due to due to name of base village : Peth.

Its a pinnacle kind of structure whose main objective was to keep watch and work as defense station

There is one famous battler fought between Marathas under Sambhaji Maharaj Empire and Mughal Empire. Unfortunately Marathas lost this battle, The Mughals renamed the fort as ‘Miftahulfateh’, meaning victory key.The Marathas continued their efforts to conquer the fort. In December 1684, the Marathas tried to stop Mughals moving towards the fort. Seven thousand Marathas constituted a strong battalion and fought with Mahamatkhan. But success was far away. In April 1685, 700 Marathas attacked again. About 200 of them climbed the fort with the help of rope ladders. Battle started between two parties and a lot of blood shaded. The goddess of victory again favored the Mughals and the Marathas lost the battle and the fort.

After 130 years in November 1817, Bapurao, a Maratha Sardar with Bajirao II fought with British and won the fort.

How to reach :

You can drive in of fort just need to put "Kothaligad fort" on google maps. Road till Ambivali village is in good condition, but after that road condition is very bad. you need good rider or professional driver to drive through that road.

From base 30-45 minutes is enough to reach Top, About 1 hour is sufficient to cover the fort area.

If you want to go via public transport in that case You need to reach Karjat Railway station. There is high amount of trains from Pune and Mumbai. You need to go to ST stand at walk able distance and catch direct bus to Ambivali, frequency is quite low, so another option is catch a bus or tumtum (six seater) to Kashele , from there direct tumtum is available to Ambivali.

Here is direct time to st buses from Karjat to ambivali : 8:30 am, 10 :45 am, 1:00 pm, 7:30 pm

Ambivali to Karjat : 6:30 am, 9:45, 11:30 am, 1:00 pm, 2:20 pm, 5:30 pm. But as its government buses so expect 30 minutes delay and plan accordingly.

From there you need to walk 4 km uphill road to reach base of fort. It can take 1- 1: 30 hours.

How I went :

So I and my friend Ashok (Patil ) catch the pragati express at 7:50 from pune station and reached around 9:40 to Karjat.

As there was around 1 hour to bus to ambivali we decided to board 9:45 bus Murbad which drops us Kashele fare 25 . At Kashele we ate vadapav as breakfast and run towards tumtum to Ambivali fare 20. We reached at 11:30 am ambivali, sun was right over ahead when we started trek.

I need to admit that I didn't checked the distance accordingly from ambivali to base of fort, I thought it was 2km and that too flat road but as I said it was 4km and uphill road. Walking though that and with sun over your head I'm sure trekkers can understand how that feels. But we started enjoying it after first 30 minutes and saw visuals of the Fort.

We reached the base of fort in around 1:15 hrs and drank Limbu sarbat (Lime water), water and food facility is available at base of fort but do not forget to carry at least 2 ltr of water with you.

We reached the top of fort in 40 minutes and saw this first view of fort which was just amazing :) All that tiredness just gone away.

Amazing stairs :

Photo of One day Trek to Kothaligad fort/ Peth Fort 4/4 by Rohitkumar Thakur

Descending fort is always easy than Ascending fort so it just took around 1 hour to reach ambivali, we ate some Chinese at local hotel as there was no other option and waited for some time of bus but tumtum arrived before that and we reached Kashele and took a auto to Karjat.

we boarded into Pragati express at 18:08 at reached Pune after exciting trek, office work was waiting for me at 6 am :(.

If you like the place information and photos, just visit this place once :)
