  • Trip introduction

    Korigad fort 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 has a large, flat top, with the ramparts completely intact. That means you can explore the edges of the undulating fort summit, take great pictures from vantage points all around, and get a closer look at the sturdy construction of the walls. You'll also find ancient cannons, and a fairly large pool in which you can take a dip.

    Destination

    This 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.

    You'll also find caves and a temple to the fort goddess, Koraidevi, to explore. In addition, the rock-hewn steps and the gate to the fort are in good condition.

  • Day 1: Trek to Korigad fort

    The day begins early for you, because you have to get to Lonavala Bus Depot by 8:30 a.m. After a brief round of introductions, the group sets off for Peth Shahapur. You should be at the base village by around 10 a.m, and after a tasty vegetarian breakfast, you'll begin the ascent. The trek is a short one, and relatively easy, so you'll be at the top by 11:30 a.m. You'll have plenty of time to explore the pools, the ruins, the ancient canons, and lots more at the top. By about 02:00 p.m, it's time to start your descent again. You'll get back to the base village by 3 p.m, and be at the Lonavala Bus Depot by 5 p.m. Trip ends here.
