About Korigad

Korigad fort is a beautiful fort located on top of a hill around 20kms from Lonavala near Aamby Valley, Maharashtra. It is a great trek for beginners or those looking to get their muscles in working order for the trekking season. It is an easy 6 km trek, with stone-cut steps leading up for the most part. It takes about 3 hours, but you'll definitely want to spend some time at the top.

Korigad fort was likely constructed around 1500AD and it has a large, flat top, with the ramparts completely intact. That means you can explore the edges of the fort summit, take great pictures from vantage points all around, and get a closer look at the sturdy construction of the walls on this Korigad trek. The gate to the fort is also in good condition and is mighty impressive. You'll also find 6 ancient cannons, the largest of which is the Lakshmi Toph near the Koraidevi temple. After a good Korigad trek you’ll be able to take a dip in the fairly large pool youll find at the top.

The Korigad trek

The Korigad fort has an elevation of about 3000 feet, so it gives you wide panoramic views from the top. You'll be able to see the lakes of the Aamby Valley project, as well as the lush forested hills around the region. The Korigad trek is a welcome break from the city and you'll get to explore also find caves and a temple to the fort goddess, Koraidevi. There are several smaller Vishnu and Shiva temples in good condition.

Best time to visit Korigad

Korigad is an easy trek and can be done at any time of the year. However, as with most Maharashtra forts, the best time to visit Korigad is in the monsoon. At this time, the Korigad trek route is green and delightful, and the water tanks at the top are full. From the top of the fort, you’ll get great views of the surrounding landscape. This offers abundant opportunities for photographers. Korigad is a popular night trek spot, and offers plenty of spots to camp out at the top.

What to carry on your Korigad trek

For your Korigad trek, you should take appropriate rainwear and trekking shoes. Do carry your essentials like water, snacks, insect repellent, first aid kit, and camera in a small day pack. Don’t forget to pack a rain cover for your bag, or pack your belongings in plastic to protect it from getting wet.
